When it comes to everyday styling sometimes I prefer to start from the bottom and work my way up.​ Whether it’s an off-day denim afternoon or I fancy digging up an old pencil-skirt for work, I can start from there and figure out the rest.​

Often I buy items of clothing (usually bottoms) without knowing what to pair it with, so I recently started thinking like this: “what do I have that I can wear with this new buy? And [if I have nothing] what more do I need to buy to accompany this new buy?” I realised I had a lot of impulse buys and I stocked up on clothes that I wasn’t wearing often – if at all! Being more systematic and intentional with your wardrobe means being honest about the clothes you actually wear and what makes you comfortable.

​In this session, browse my list of some essential styles required in every wardrobe. From different skirt-shapes to denim cuts, it’s important to have a little variety. A versatile collection of bottoms need not be expensive or extensive, but it will add “flavour” to your wardrobe and encourage you to reach out for abandoned items.​

The Essentials: ​

For off-days, have at least two different denim styles: a loose-fit or “Mom Jeans” style and a slim smart style (straight-leg/skinny). ​

For work-wear and ocassional-styling, build up a variety of base-coloured trousers and skirts.
  • Pencil skirts
  • Fit-n-Flare skirts
  • Straight-leg trousers
  • High-waisted trousers/skirts
