The thumb rule of shopping is to buy pieces that are actually a long term investment. Collecting pieces that will remain as stylish and classic in 20 years as they are today. I have personally learned ( although a bit late) how to build a wardrobe from my Mother. She has such beautiful pieces from long coats to jewellery in her wardrobe that goes back to almost 30 years and luckily my mother loves sharing.  So today, we will be discussing 5 basic elements that every lady should have in her wardrobe that will last as long as the term fashion is going to.

  • Black Dress: Every wardrobe needs to have ‘must-have Black Dress’, not just one but two. One for a day and one for the evening.  As the fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld once said, “A lady can never be overdressed or underdressed in a little black dress“.  I have picked a few black dresses for different occasions.

You might like few budget-friendly options available at Karen Millen. The label is offering a 40% discount on everything.

  • Classic Blazer: A sharp formal blazer is a vital piece in a women’s work wardrobe. A well-tailored blazer is a transformative element. The only noticeable rule in shopping blazer is to make sure it is a well-fit. If you do not like traditional black then play with different hues and fabrics to make your classic selection.

  • Statement Earrings: Some says the jewels are a lady’s best friend. But to me, they were always the trickiest and difficult part of being dressing up. There was a time when I used to hate jewellery at all. Then came a period when I loved statement earrings. Now I am in a zone where the minimal jewels are more than enough and that includes only small studs.  But I do believe one thing ‘a pair of statement earrings can make or break the outfit’. And to me it’s cherry on top if they are vintage. So here I picked a few vintages and few contemporary pieces.
