Fashion Train Style Essentials

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Loads of you keep asking what are the key pieces in my wardrobe? What are the pieces I invest in? What are the pieces in the wardrobe which will last year after year?
So I thought I'd put together a quick list of my style essentials I couldn't live without and where they are from!
1. Black Seam Detail Biker Jacket - Miss Selfridge
2. Clean Biker Jacket - Topshop
3. Quilted Panel Biker - Topshop

I actually own number 2 and it's my favourite jacket to wear. Here in England the weather is a bit depressing/cold/wet/horrible and without this jacket I don't know what I'd do! It looks great with everything and is perfect all year round and so It's worth the £55 investment!
1. American Apparel Disco Pants - ASOS
2. Royal Blue Disco Pants - Glamorous
3. Black Disco Pants - Glamorous
4. Pewter Disco Pants - Glamorous

I have the Black AA pair and the Pewter Glamorous pair but these Royal Blue ones are on my wishlist! I live in my AA pair as they are perfect to dress up and down. I wear them with pumps/trainers in the daytime and for a night time look I wear with heels/boots! I love disco pants as they make you feel super skinny (even on your fat days) and that little bit more stylish!
1,2,4,6 - All Linzi Shoes
3,5,7,8 - All Topshop

On a daily basis these are the shoes I go to when I'm late/don't have long to get ready and I still want to look on trend. Studded Loafers have become the shoes I can't live without these past 7 months or so! I now have 6 pairs (oops!) they go with everything and I stick with my motto if you like it buy it in more colours!
1. Bleach High Waist Hotpants - Topshop
2. Tapestry Contrast Hotpants - Topshop
3. MOTO copper Stud Denim Hotpants - Topshop

Hotpants are the item of clothing I have the most of! No matter what I always seem to find a new pair I love and I know I'll get a good wear out of them (so I buy them oops!) These are just a few pairs I love on Topshop right now! I have the first pair and they go with everything! I love this tapestry contrast pair as they are bright and different (in a good way of course!) and the studded pair is gorgeous too! I wear shorts to death so I definitely think it's worth investing in a great pair for your wardrobe!
1. Black Creepers - Own The Runway
2. Black Studded Creepers - Runway Shoes
3. Burgundy Creepers - Linzi Shoes

Creepers are my new shoe style essential! They're really on trend right now! I have this first pair from Own The Eunway and I live in them! I love wearing them with frilled ankle socks and tights! If you're stuck for ideas look at my How to style creepers post!

All these items are my style essentials and the pieces in my wardrobe I wouldn't be able to live without! I know I haven't included any blouse/top in this post as everyone's style is so different and there's TOO many tops to chose from! I live in basic tops/t-shirts/vest and team them with my style essentials!

I hope this post has helped all of you who are stuck on what 'key' pieces to have in your wardrobe!

Which is your favourite style essential? What item in your wardrobe couldn't you live without?

Love the leather jacket and I really want those blue disco pants xx

Alice said...

I love Topshop's hotpants - although it's terrible that I want them all even when they're so similar sometimes!
I definitely agree with the leather jacket and studded loafers, but I'm one of the few people who Disco Pants are very UNflattering on and I can't bring myself to like creepers :')

Couldn't agree more about the disco pants and leather or 'biker' jackets! My absolute staples! Aswell as the studded loafer.

Those loafers are amazing.
