The French are well known for their impeccable sense of style and their investment in the classics. I would really love to take a leaf out of their book and cut back on unnecessary purchases. It would be great to look at your wardrobe and know that everything you pull out will go together.
I picked out ten classic pieces that I think every women should own. Make sure you invest in these top ten, scrimping will only mean you have to buy them again later. The classic white shirt is a must have for your wardrobe, you can wear this for work or for play. Wear it with your jeans or even over your little black dress for work. You only have to take the shirt off for after work drinks, transforming your look. Speaking of jeans, a great fitting pair are essential or maybe a couple.
A trench and a leather jacket are the perfect interchangeable items, the trench is a little more formal whereas you could slip your leather jacket over your Breton tee and head to a gig. Your bags are also an important investment. You need a good black leather everyday bag for work, it needs to be able to fit all your essentials in. Equally you need a black leather clutch for your evening outfits, I picked out a roomy one, as you still need space for make-up, your phone etc.
A pair of flats and a pair of heels are going to be the most worn items in your wardrobe, slip your heels into your bag if your heading out from work. There you have it, ten items you need to achieve that je nais se quoi.
