When it comes to day-to-day dressing, especially during the tricky transition months, classic pieces must rule your wardrobe. The key to the carefree look lies in timeless pieces with modern tweaks. Gone are the days of buying something cheap on a whim – every purchase should be truly considered. It’s essential that you get true mileage from all of your special purchases, especially key accessories. We’ve collected the coming season’s freshest take on enduring wardrobe staples, featuring our top core autumn/ winter items.
The classic trench
Given our busy lifestyles, today shopping is about buying less, but buying smarter. Opt for the classic trench; a trusted staple that will see you through several winter seasons. Take inspiration from the model Burberry trench and look for a traditional A-line silhouette that will cinch you in at the waist for the most flattering effect. Designed to disguise any fashion faux pas hidden underneath and make you tres chic with the cinch of a belt.
A chunky wristwatch
An oversized, masculine watch adds interest to pared-down pieces at the office and can double as a bracelet when layered with additional jewellery. Few things say more about a person than their watch – its character, look and style can give others a peek into the wearer’s background. Melbourne Watch Company styles bridge the gap between dress wear and day wear and is a suitable go-to choice for many different occasions.
The tea-length dress
The tea-length – and by that we mean knee-length – dress will wear just as well at backyard barbecues in summer and garden parties in spring as it will at evening soirees and winter weddings. To retain the classic motif that this style of dress embraces, opt for a ubiquitous print. This classic style is both ladylike and demure as it is stylish and sophisticated.
The versatile handbag
Some handbags come and go, but classic styles will always go the distance. A successful handbag purchase is one that lasts longer than the season. And, if you can splash out into the designer ranges, make sure you pick one that is worth the price tag. We suggest black or tan – classic, versatile colours to match your everyday.
