WIT's Timeless Essentials


After all the fluff and thought behind my outfits during London Fashion Week I'm in a total basics mode (that is till Milan this week end). And this got me thinking about the things we actually need in our wardrobe like the perfect tee, the breton top, the perfectly cut black coat and the slick day-to-night clutch. This is the way I shop: quality staples that will stand the test of time which I then mix up with seasonal must-haves. Since my late twenties (when less became more) I've been aiming at building a  capsule wardrobe of investment basics that I will love and treasure forever. Whistles is one of my favorite premium high stores for these basic go-getters where quality meets an accessible price tag. From cashmere to tailoring, here is my round up of the wardrobe essentials all of us WIT women should own plus a few investments buys that you will never got out of style.

Shopping List
  • The simple white tee - I love the sleeve turn ups and boyish cut of this tee. The secret to the perfect tee is all in the perfect jersey weight and this one is one of my favourite. Ella Roll Cuff Tee  £40.00
  • The cashmere crew neck - if you can help it, stick to cashmere it lasts longer, it feels amazing on and it looks the part. A soft grey shade is the single most used item in my wardrobe. Clea Contrast Cashmere Crew
  • The tailored black coat - Opt for thick luxe fabrics and minimal detailing to stand the test of time. Less is more when it comes to coats. Dina Crombie  £395.00
  • The ankle grazing pant - If there is one shape that suits all shapes it's the sligtly cropped cigarette pant. Perfect with flats and so chic with heels.  Campbell Tailored Trouser  £125.00
