What is the point of having lots of things you seldom wear? A well-edited wardrobe makes life much simpler, when you know that everything you reach for looks good and feels comfortable. Fashion stylists and designers often talk about wardrobe foundations – the key pieces that every woman needs to cover every occasion.
Little Black Dress
From the 1920’s to now, the term ‘little black dress’ (as introduced by Coco Chanel) has become the ultimate fashion staple. Whatever your age, profession, or overall style there is will be a savvy little black dress look for you. The little black dress has stood the test of time as the go-to look for fashion lovers. Perfect for any occasion day-to-night, great for all skin tones and an excellent way of pulling off ‘the glam factor’ effortlessly, the little black dress guarantees a perfect look time-in and time-out.
A black dress is great for several reasons, but the main one is clear, versatility. There’s so much you can do with this as part of your wardrobe staples. You could go casual with a cocktail dress and understated accessories, flats, and a matching clutch or over-the-shoulder handbag, or dress your look up in a midi dress with matching black heels, statement jewellery, and a bright glitter clutch to tie it all together.
The little black dress is perfect for every season, and every outing – from wedding receptions to date nights, to a girl’s night out. You’ll never go wrong with one in your wardrobe.
The Wrap Style Dress
Another one of the most versatile dresses you can have in your wardrobe, a wrap style dress is one of the most flattering dresses you will ever own. Cinching in at the waist and falling from the hip, the always-stylish wrap style dress looks great on every body type. It’s a simple piece and a great choice to look polished with minimal effort. Relaxed, carefree, and casual dress, it’s a great choice for the party season.
There are countless ways to dress these looks up – dress it up or down both night and day for a true feminine touch! A wrap dress is a great option for a romantic summertime wedding function or a casual breakfast bunch. There are endless options to choose from when picking a wrap dress and you can experiment with vibrant colours, bold prints or even sophisticated silk textures.
The Printed Dress
Midi dresses typically hit mid-calf or just below the knee and are an essential addition to your wardrobe staples. The midi dress comes with an easy to wear vibe that can easily be shifted to an elegant ensemble, or something more suited to a racy night out. It’s a flattering style that can be worn countless ways – whether it’s a bodycon, a mesh skirt, or an asymmetrical hemline.
A floral print dress is the perfect way to add some effortless femininity to your style. Some may argue that the floral print is more trend than staple, but year after year we see the floral emerge as a front running spring/summer staple. Florals have taken a chic, slightly soft and sweeter approach whilst still holding onto a hint of edginess.
