3 Must-Have Classic Wardrobe Pieces

 

Hey everyone!

While makeup is my first love, today I have a fashion post to share with you. I don’t buy a lot of clothes but there are some key wardrobe pieces that are worth investing in. And I don’t mean just in terms of money, but also in the time that you spend in finding the perfect fit and style to flatter your figure! I’m sharing 3 classic wardrobe must-haves that I feel are an essential for every woman. I’ve chosen some beautiful styles from ScoopNYC but you can find these classics pretty much anywhere you decide to shop from!

 

1. Structured Hand Bag

While slouchy bags are great for casual looks, I love structured hand bags as they instantly smarten up any outfit! I’ve also found that its easier to keep them organised inside as well. Classic shades like black, tan, camel and grey work with any outfit! I personally love lighter pastels shades too.
