One definite must for me is the classic relaxed fit shirt in white, grey and black. These are the most basic of basics. I find that scoop necks are more flattering for me rather than the V-neck since I do have a smaller bust. As a soon-to-be university student, I also find them extremely comfortable and no-fuss. The perfect relaxed tee can be incredibly chic when worn right. Talking about comfort, sweaters are another wardrobe piece I simply cannot live without. It can either be worn on its own or as a layering piece in the colder months. Again, these items would be bought in a rather neutral palette. In terms of outerwear, I do prefer the longline silhouette especially with blazers. I have also been leaning towards coats which are oversized and have a menswear influence. In the fall/winter seasons, the jacket is the most important component and with that very one item can punch up an otherwise ordinary outfit.
These collages are a way of helping me visualise a basic wardrobe in which I hope to master this year. Not only will I stop saying "I have nothing to wear", but also have a wardrobe that will last me for years. Have you already mastered your basic wardrobe or are you still missing pieces like I am?
