My Top 10 Wardrobe Staples


I have a rule whenever I go clothes shopping:no more than $50 per trendy item. I don’t mind splurging on handbags, shoes and jewellery, but for some reason, splurging on clothes, doesn’t sit well with me, especially not on trendy pieces.

What’s a trendy piece? Any piece of clothing that’s the ‘must-have’ of the season or any fad trend, i.e any short-lived fashion trends. E.g the peplum, studs & spikes, fringes, aztec patterns etc. I love all of the aforementioned, don’t get me wrong but I’ll stick to my <$50 per piece rule.

Things I wouldn’t mind spending more on, are my wardrobe staples – those pieces of clothing that are timeless classics or items that I can wear for years. I think you can always vamp up wardrobe staples with accessories, belts, scarves, hats etc and one thing to always keep in mind, is that staples are extremely versatile. Here are my Top 10 wardrobe staples. This post is limited to clothes, I’ll do a separate one for shoes and accessories later.
