In attempt to de-clutter my minuscule London bedsit, I've been having a wardrobe detox. I've decided to be ruthless - giving away or selling clothes that I haven't worn in the past 6 months. Sorting through my wardrobe has made me realise that I acquire far too trend-driven pieces that don't stand the test of time, and how freeing it would be to only invest in timeless fashion. With that in mind - I've compiled the below edit of wear-forever buys: 

1. A classic breton tee: blue/navy colour combinations are best
2. Mid wash blue skinny jeans: a classic wash and cut
3. Anything grey marl: t-shirts, sweaters, converse - grey marl oozes effortless cool
4. Sequins: will the appeal of sequins ever date? I don't think so. The desire to dazzle is timeless 
5. Leopard print: a style classic, best when injected through accessories
6. Statement jewels: A bold statement necklace will always look chic
7. Converse: the ultimate off-duty shoe, it's their comfort factor that makes converse classic

Style classics, capsule wardrobe

1. Hope stripe top, Joules, £29.95.
2. Masaya mid-wash jeans, Whistles, £95
3. Petit Bateau grey marl sweater, Atterley Road, £70
4. Erdem floral & sequin skirt,, £1,090.
5. Alana leopard print courts, Hobbs, £159
6. Pina vintage necklace, Cinderela B, £125.
7. Converse high-tops, ASOS, £50

ps. I forgot the black ballet pump definitely a style classic in the LFF world too!
