For 2016, one of my resolutions was to try and get rid of some of my clothes. Donating the majority of them to charity shops :). I have overflowing wardrobes full of clothes, that I have acquired over the years, of which I only wear a small fraction of them on a regular basis. So my aim is to take the mentality of less is more (This is a very difficult task for me, I think clothes, shopping and fashion are in my blood! haha). But to do this, every wardrobe needs to start with the basics, the sheer necessities. To me, this is; really good quality denim and a ‘perfect’ striped tee :). If you have these two things, then you are well on your way to the ultimate timeless wardrobe!
A tip for where to shop for back to basic essentials is:
Uncivilised, they are a great foundation for a casual wardrobe, they sell a mix of really good quality denim, as well as super comfy tees and sweaters. They combine contemporary styling with simple, clean, and minimal designs, all contributing to create an effortless look 🙂
Here are a few of their pieces which I have included into my everyday life:
The Celeste top (turtle necks are such a huge trend at the moment, so combining it with stripes, is a win win for me):
I love to wear it with double denim as above 🙂 Or with a simple pinafore dress/dungarees:
Uncivilised, also do some really good quality jeans, the kind of jeans that can stay with you for years and years, timeless yet extremely current. My favourite being the; Aries rising high, skinny jeans:
So with the help of good quality basics, get started on your timeless capsule wardrobe!
