5 Things I Consider Wardrobe Essentials

When it comes to my wardrobe, there are styles and pieces I find myself going back to over and over again. Whether it's literally the same piece of clothing, or I keep buying similar items, some things are just too good to resist. So here are 5 things I consider wardrobe essentials!

1) A good pair of Converses.


The thing with Converses is that I think they get better the older they are. I love the worn look and Converses seem to be really indestructible, I've got pairs I've owned for years and years that I still love. They look great with jeans, adorable with skirts, and there is no better shoe for with cute dresses in the good weather. I've no preference for the height, high and low tops are all good and I can't stop collecting them.

2) Skinny jeans.


I know, apparently skinny jeans are on the way out but I'll never let them go. I have no preference witht he wash of the denim, black, pale, acid wash, dark, I love them all. They are rock and roll and just damn cool.

3) A faux leather jacket.


I wear my faux leather jackets with absolutely everything. To work, over party dresses, with jeans, they work with anything! This particular beauty is from Plus Equals and the sleeves zip off making it even more versatile than your standard pleather jacket. I had a pleather jacket in my hotel room for my wedding even, just in case it got cold to throw on over my wedding dress. I take pleather jackets very seriously.

4) A pair of black boots.


A good pair of black boots can go with almost anything. My personal preference is for biker boots because my style is a bit more alternative, but I think investing in a sturdy pair of boots is totally worthwhile. Boots are something you can wear pretty solidly through autumn and winter and when you find 'the' pair, you'll know. I've owned 3 of this exact pair of boots now. They've been discontinued so I've ordered a near identical pair but a bit shorter in length to replace these as they have holes in.

5) A denim jacket.


In the summer when it's too warm for my pleather jacket, it's denim jacket time. Particularly for summer, this is a key item in my wardrobe. I don't do double denim, but for me summer doesn't really means jeans, so I wear it with skirts and dresses galore!

What do you consider your wardrobe essentials to be? I could have probably named a few more but then this wouldn't have fit in my 5 things series haha!

Much love,

    1. I used to love Sketchers when I was a kid! Sadly my massive feet mean the more feminine styles don't fit me
