I took over Truzees – (The Mum Brigade) snapchat over the weekend. I shared my tips to building staples for your wardrobe. If you have ever looked into your overflowing wardrobe and thought “ugh Ive nothing to wear” – it could be because you’re not shopping clever. You guys really seemed to find my tips helpful and I was delighted that you enjoyed them. I was surprised by how many questions I received so I have decided to make a little section in my blog dedicated to wardrobe Staples.
What better way to kick start this Fashion Staple section than with this hot Monochrome number.
A crisp white shirt is a favourite of mine. In my humble opinion every girl needs one tucked away into their closet. A white shirt is so versatile. It can be tucked into any shade of jeans, under a jumpsuit, thrown on over leggings or in this case, tucked into a faux leather pencil skirt. For a more relaxed style I always like to buy my shirts a few sizes bigger than my normal size. This gives it that effortless off duty look. Pop the collar, roll the sleeves and you’re ready to go.

Black Pencil Skirt
A pencil skirt is a great alternative to jeans. They also can be worn from day to night. For a daytime look, keeping the skirt the base of the outfit, you could pair it with flat ballet pumps and a casual cropped jumper. For an evening look I would pair it with heels.( like above) A black skirt is a wardrobe staple as it can be easy to transition into your Autumn\ Winter wardrobe. In the colder months pop on a pair of black tights and ankle boots to give this outfit a whole new lease of life.
Court Black Shoes
Court shoes are a must have. They are an all rounded item as they can be worn with many different styles. These court shoes have a leather look finish, that feature a contrast trim with studs. These shoes have a heel height are 4.5’’ making them high enough to add extra inches to your height whilst still being comfortable.
Never underestimate the power of what a good belt can bring to an outfit. Adding a belt to any outfit simply finishes it off. This GG reversible belt with a gold buckle has become a quick favourite of mine. This belt has two sides, a tan side and black side making this super easy to add to any outfit.
