Updating your wardrobe can get costly, especially when you pay attention to the various seasonal trends that are making it onto the catwalk. While it’s natural to want to add a few new pieces to your wardrobe of clothes every now and again, if you choose pieces that can carry you through the seasons, you’ll get better value for money than whimsically buying seasonal items that you will only be able to wear a few times before the weather changes.
Opt for versatility as well as style and you will be able to add some superb items to your wardrobe without affecting your pursestrings too much. Here are five additions that will not just last you until the end of winter, but will take you right through until summer, too.
A Mini Skirt
It doesn’t matter how daring you want to be, a mini skirt or two in your wardrobe can be the answer to many outfit woes, whatever the season. Treat yourself to a gorgeous George mini skirt and be safe in the knowledge that you won’t break the bank by doing so. Team with a pair of opaque tights and heels during the colder weather, or wear without tights and a cute pair of sandals as the weather takes a turn for the better.
While you may be tempted to stick to a simple black or navy blazer, you could opt for a brighter, bolder shade if you wish for your outfit to pop. Vivid colours are a great way to brighten up an outfit on a dull day; add a bold blazer to some simple trousers and cashmere sweater during the winter months, before popping on over a striped T and light cotton trousers during the spring.
A Knee Length Skirt
Opt for one in a funky print, such as animal print or geo shapes, to be bang on trend. Team with a cute blouse or cowl-neck sweater for a sophisticated, wintery look or with a sleeveless cotton tunic if the weather allows.
A Jersey Dress
If you choose to add a jersey dress or two to your wardrobe, opt for a colour that is vibrant and bold. Add a cool leather jacket and some opaque tights for colder days, and wear solo as the days get warmer.
Monochrome dresses, such as a black and white number, would look super with a pair of leather knee length boots, while they would look equally chic and elegant with a white blazer and pair of white block heels during the warmer spring and summer days.
Perfect all year round, the skinny jean is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can get. Opt for a pair in light grey if you wish to have a pair that can just as easily be teamed up with a vest or tank top as they can with a cashmere sweater.
Be ready, whatever the weather, with effortless outfits that will look and feel great, come rain or shine.
