    Quality over Quantity

Have you ever stopped to think about which items of clothing you can't live without?

Quality staples can really make a difference to your outfit not to mention ease the blow on your pocket in the long run.

Here's a list of what you should be spending your hard earned dollars on.

Plain White Tee

Go figure, this is probably the most obvious one. But how good are white tees?

They are the most basic piece of clothing you can own and actually tend to be quite versatile.

Dress it down or style it up, a white tee will be your best friend for many years, so don't skimp on one.

Leather jacket

Yep - another obvious one, but seriously when has it ever gone out of style?

Invest in a good quality leather jacket. Though they can initially be a bit pricey, we promise - you'll be thanking yourself in the colder months.

Denim Skinny Jeans

Okay so is it just me, or is this list starting to be a little predictable? 

Let me explain, denim is a tricky one because there are so many colours, fits and brands, it can sometimes be a little more difficult to decipher which one to invest in.

I'm all for experimenting but here's some advice; invest in one or two really good quality pairs of jeans that will take you from season to season.

A blue or charcoal wash are safe choices and remain timeless. Pick wisely as this will end up being your most versatile piece of clothing you will ever own.

Blazer

A good quality blazer will take you places (literally) so take the time to find the 'one'. It's all about the fit - so if needed we recommend you spend that extra dosh and get it tailored.

Going with a black blazer is the safest route, but it doesn't have to be boring.

Coat

Whether it be a wool blend or a trench - a coat is a must. Even though you may not get to use it all year round. A coat can either add or take away from an outfit.

Pick a neutral colour, or one that compliments the majority of the more wintry pieces you own.

Little Black Dress 

This classic is an essential to every gal's wardrobe. This little dress will work wonders and is safe to say will become your go-to-item that will never let you down. 

Again, it's all about the fit with this one. Length is also something to keep in mind as it will be a factor of it's adaptability.

To guarantee it's longevity, keep it simple and work with the 'less is more' approach.
