Now that the colder weather is here, it’s always good to start with some basic items for your winter wardrobe. Then once you have the foundations of any look, you can build on it with key style pieces.

So I’ve started with a basic & plain black jumper, essential black ankle boots, a leather patterned skirt and of course some retro wayfarer sunglasses.

All of these can be paired together to make a casual black look, but they can also be easily styled with different looks; that’s the great thing about basics, you can never go wrong! Oh, and it means I can put my bank card into hibernation for a bit!
