Good afternoon everyone, hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today’s post is about five versatile pieces in my closet. I don’t know about you but there are a number of garments in my closet that I can wear on repeat. Now I have narrowed it down to five of them.
So take a scroll down to see five versatile, simple yet chic pieces that tick all the boxes for me. Maybe you own similar pieces or you may end up investing in a few!
Now this is the most obvious piece for me and I am sure for a lot of you too. The oversized blazer can be worn for work, for events, worn over a bodysuit, over dresses and to smarten up my go to denim jeans. I love how a blazer can instantaneously make an outfit look put together. Blazers are a great alternative to coats for those not so chilly days and are so versatile that they can be layered with knits too. For those days when it is rather cold throw on a coat on top, it really does work with so many different outfits!
WIDE LEG TROUSERS
By now you all know how much I love to wear a pair of wide leg trousers, so it is no surprise that they would be one of the five pieces that I would include in my list of versatile items. Do love a tailored pair of trousers that has been beautifully crafted. The wide leg trouser is a more relaxed version of the smart trouser, one that can be embraced as part of a casual outfit.
The pair that I am wearing is from non other than ME&EM, I can’t tell you how much I adore these trousers. They are so versatile, that they can be dressed down or up. Here I have opted for a casual smart look and have paired them with my white Superga trainers. What really drew me to these trousers were the braces, I am a sucker for them and absolutely can’t get enough of them!
AN OVERSIZED WHITE SHIRT
Next and onto a crisp white shirt, I mean who doesn’t love one right! It goes with most things, you can wear it on its own and throw on a sleeveless knit and a pair of combat boots and voila you all set. Why not pair the white shirt with some leather trousers add a pair of knee high boots and a biker jacket and you’re all set. The options are endless there are so many different ways to style the oversized shirt. A staple piece of garment in my closet and can be part of a capsule wardrobe too for those seeking a minimalistic closet.
Moving on and on to bodysuits, love a simple bodysuit, one that can be worn all year round. Whether you want to dress it up or down it sure is another piece that is versatile. Wear it with jeans and a blazer for a casual approach or amp it up and team it with a skirt like my blue fringed Jacquemus one, which you would have seen in one of my previous posts. For the cooler months the bodysuit will work perfectly under a knit and a coat.
Now I know this might not work for everyone due to where you live. But hear me out you can still layer your linen dresses during Autumn/Winter. Add some tights, a pair of knee high boots an oversized sweater and then throw on a coat and you are all good to go. Just like a slip dress that works wonderfully during the colder months well so can a linen one. The linen dress is a must during Spring/Summer. A spaghetti strap midi dress can be found year after year in the stores and one that can be styled in so many different ways making it one of my versatile pieces in my closet!
