My S/S & A/W Wardrobe Staples

Hi guys!

I'm already off to a bad start with my 3-4 posts a week. My apologies!! Today I thought I would do my S/S & A/W wardrobe staples post. I watched Essie Button's Winter Wardrobes Staples and inspired me to do this post. This took me a lot longer than I thought but it was fun nonetheless. Anyways, hope you enjoy!! xx

Summer Staples

This is probably the most colourful set out of them all. I tend to wear a lot of crop tops with skirts or shorts. It's just a simple and easy combination. I also added a sort of skater dress into this set because I do tend to wear dresses a lot if I just want to run out of the door quickly. I really like wearing sandals because it lets my feet breaaaathe and not sweat like crazy. Right now I have Essie's mint candy apple on my nails and I looove it, so I added that into the mix. Also I have fallen in love with one of my old brown bags because it holds so much and goes with any outfit easily.

Autumn Staples

I initially wasn't sure if this should be a Autumn or Sprint set but I decided it would be Autumn because there was less colour. I have been loving striped tops, dresses, skirts, etc. etc. So I just had to include one in this set. Since Autumn isn't too hot/cold it's perfect to wear a skirt. I still also wear shorts but I tend to wear more skirts. Crop tops go easily with my skirts as well as normal tops. I especially love ribbed tops so I may or may not end up purchasing some off ASOS. Dresses are also an essential because they are so easy to dress up and down. Since it's not too cold, I still wear sandals which look good with any outfit.

Winter Staples

This set probably took me the longest to do. I saw soo many things I liked that I wanted to include but had to cut it down. As of last year I started to fall in love with high necks/turtle necks. I used to hate them because they made my neck feel really weird and I hate when people touch my neck. But I somehow fell in love with them and just ignored the feeling. For my birthday last year, I ordered off American Apparel and bought riding pants. All of winter I pretty much spent them in them because they were so comfy and flattering. Even though it's cold I still think it's nice to wear a skirt with some stockings to keep your legs warm and so they're not bare.

Kendall and Kylie sported a lot of long cardigans/duster coats and I never thought I could pull them off because I am really short. ASOS was having a sale so I thought why not just try out a long cardigan. Lo and behold I fell in love. Just so I don't feel too short I wear heeled boots which help me look taller. My favourite pair is from ASOS and the brand is New Look. Speaking of shoes, I just acquired Roshe Runs and thought they would look really good with pants in the winter to wear to university.

A beanie and scarf would be good to keep your head and neck warm. I've been really loving camel so I may need to go find myself a camel scarf if I don't have one already. Winter is also a good time to wear darker lipsticks so I added a YSL lipstick. My favourite is probably Forbidden Burgundy by YSL.

Spring Staples

Last but not least, Spring! There isn't really much colour in this set. If I'm being totally honest, I wear black and white all year, with some colour. I love blue dresses and I think the colour complements my skin tone. The shape of this dress is also lovely for my figure. Boots are good for when it's a little chilly and the sandals are good for warmer days. Thin long sleeve tops are also good for layering during chillier days.
