Sometimes it’s hard to know which fashion essentials you should invest in.
Our fashion editor, Nastassja, has more than a keen eye for fashion and creative flair – she’s also armed with some wardrobe-saving basics!
Even the savviest dresser is stuck sometimes, spending what seems like hours trying to figure out what to wear! The secret, however, is having fail-safe options that you can rely on to make you feel like a million bucks and have your confidence levels soar.
Here are our fashion editor’s go-to pieces for an instant style boost.
Looking good in your clothing really starts with your underwear.
A simple t-shirt bra is discreet and a must-have for everyday wear. If you’re looking for a lift, choose a style with underwire support. Opt for cotton panties with a slightly high waist – great for subtle shaping and comfort.
And when you need extra slimming for that fitted dress, get out the shaper!
A classic shirt
Most must-have lists contain a white shirt, but it may not be your preference. Any colour you look and feel great in will do, as long as it’s versatile. A classic piece will work no matter the season, is perfect for layering, and instantly smartens a look.
Dress it up with a skirt and heels for the evening, add sophisticated edge to jeans and trainers, or layer under a sleeveless shift dress.
Comfy shoes are the buy of the moment, and we don’t think this trend going to go away any time soon.
Trainers are the go-to shoes for everyone in the know. Choose a simple and sleek pair of sneakers and wear them with absolutely everything. Yes, even skirts and dresses.
Need to instantly turn a simple outfit into something more glamorous? Go for statement jewellery – it requires zero effort and you will be super stylish. These statement earrings will have you party-ready in seconds.
