Sorry if I’m starting to sound like a broken record but I do love good essentials, classic pieces that you’ll keep for years. It’s my thing. It came about when I realised that I had lots of clothes in my wardrobe but that I couldn’t easily combine them to create outfits I wanted to wear. I decided to look for items that would be more versatile. When I bought a new item I would challenge myself to envisage at least three outfits I could create, combining it with pieces I already owned before I would allow myself to buy it.
In this outfit I’m wearing a few pieces I would consider essentials, a grey sweatshirt dress, a navy peacoat and white leather trainers. Each piece is well-made from good quality materials. If you’re looking for essentials that you’re going to wear regularly they need to be made to last.
