Shopping and styling are on my mind at the moment with my upcoming Saturday Style Series. These sessions are aimed to help you plan a spring/summer wardrobe for the upcoming season. You can learn more about that in this blog.
However, it is a great idea to have a few essential items in your wardrobe that can cross over to any season. Particularly for your work wear wardrobe.
As there are still a few bargains to be had at end of season sales, to help you plan a wardrobe that fits in with your budget, I’ve come up with my top ten wardrobe classics.
Whether your personal brand is classic and formal or free-spirited and fashionable, a few essential clothing items can form the basis of your wardrobe. This selection of top ten items for women and men can be packed in a bag for a business trip or built upon with other items and accessories to create a more comprehensive wardrobe collection.
