How often do you stand in front of your wardrobe and think ‘I have nothing to wear’
I do, far too much and I always seem to favour one particular pair of jeans and a couple of tops – which made me think I should search for key pieces to build a capsule wardrobe for Autumn/Winter.

Smart Trousers – Great for dressing up with a evening top or dress down with a tank top or tshirt. I favour the wide legged trouser and think grey will make a nice change to the black.
Well Fitting Jeans – A staple item of any wardrobe if they fit well! My favourite is the high waisted kind, so I can hold my baby belly in! They go well will flats & boots.
Little Black Dress – The most important item and one I don’t actually own! I mean I have dresses just not a black one. I love the simplicity of this one and that it can be versatile for day and night. Skater style will suit my shape and not hug the wrong bits!
Blazer Jacket – To smarten any outfit be it jeans, dress or shorts and black is classic and stylish and of course goes with everything.
Shorts – Could also pick a skirt but I’m loving shorts at the moment and have been living in my denim ones when the sun is out. Again gone for high waisted and black and look fab with tights under (like the stripe ones) and boots or a fancy top and heels for night.
Party Dress – Skulls have to get in there someway and I love this dress, good to have a bit of colour but I’ll need my hold in underwear for this baby!
Handbag – Always important to have a trusty handbag and oh look skulls again!
Winter Coat – Isn’t this fur coat amazing? Looks so cosy and makes me want to bring on the winter weather!! Can’t wait to snuggle up in it!
Footwear – A staple wardrobe always needs a pair of flats, heels and hard wearing leather boots. I love that flats can be worn in day and night. Heels are definitely only for night and sometimes don’t even last that long! And boots – well I can live in those, dresses, shorts, jeans and trousers they go with everything in my eyes.
After working out what I want for my capsule wardrobe and I am really looking forward to getting these pieces and making them work. Would love to hear what your key pieces are? Are there items you love and feature in most outfits?
