Top 5 Wardrobe Essentials

There are certain essential pieces that every lady should have in her wardrobe. These pieces are versatile, reliable, comfortable and stylish. They are your immediate go-to items, no matter the occasion. You can effortlessly dress them up or pair them down while relying on them to make you look and feel your best!

But what are the top five most coveted timeless investment pieces?

#1 – The versatile outerwear piece

Having a stylish finishing layer can perfectly tie your look together and there is no other coat that has stood the test of time longer than the trusty trench coat. Opt for one with a natural, mutual tone so that you can easily coordinate it with a variety of ensembles to wear time and time again. Ours has classic gentle shaping, an optional tie belt and is made in a smart cotton twill fabric with a small amount of stretch for comfort.

#2 – The little black bag

The queen of the accessories. Classic and timeless, it can be used year-round and promises to complement any outfit. There are few things more sacred than a woman’s handbag, so surely that’s reason enough to ensure you’re investing in the right one! Our Italian-made woven handbag is a gorgeous piece with luxurious leather handles and a lined interior.


#3 – The figure-flattering dress

A confidence boosting dress that can be worn for any occasion in an eye-catching colour or pattern is invaluable. Simply accessorise with a statement necklace or earrings for a glamourous touch, or pair with flats for a casual day-out. This russet leaf print dress is a stunning wardrobe addition, featuring a scoopneck and draped knot waist to enhance the silhouette.


#4 – The ‘go-to’ layer

Whether you’re looking for an in-between season cover-up or an extra layer on those chiller days, a plain and chic jacket is perfect. Choosing a lightweight and unlined garment will provide more versatility through-out the whole year too. The faux leather detail and satin-back crêpe fabric of our blouson jacket is wonderfully luxurious, and the soft drape will complement all figures.


#5 – The timeless trousers

Simply elegant, these trousers are the epitome of a capsule wardrobe piece. Made in a superb cotton-mix fabric with a comfortable stretch in the weave, they can effortlessly be dressed up for a formal occasion with a blazer and smart blouse and equally worn as beautifully, with a t-shirt, cardigan or jumper for a stylish but relaxed outfit.
