How Keeping It Simple, Has Transformed My Wardrobe

Just recently I feel like I have nailed my style and that is because I have decided to keep it simple. I have started to think more wisely about my clothing purchases and have been buying a few investment pieces. I bought myself a pair of AND/OR jeans in the Summer, these jeans have really been the starting point for transforming and building up my wardrobe. I feel confident in them, they suit and flatter my figure. But also they are easy to wear and you can really style them up to achieve a chic look. A good pair of jeans is a must for your wardrobe. I’ve struggled with jeans for years and lost confidence in them, but I am so happy I have found a pair that suits my body shape.

I have started to think more about the colours I wear before I would wear such a variety. But then, I would find that I often did not have things that went together-because my wardrobe was so diverse in colour. I have really gotten into Autumn colours and am loving browns, oranges, blacks and golden tones. But I think the key to easy style, is to pick a colour palette that you love and get yourself some key pieces.

Coats and blazers can really freshen up the same look. In this blog post, I am wearing the same jeans and jumper in both pictures. But by adding a coat, it has really changed up the look. It looks completely different.

Sunglasses, you know I would only usually wear these on holiday. But recently I am wearing them a lot and there are a couple of reasons for this. They really dress up an outfit and make you feel good. The second reason is, that I spend a lot of time having my picture taken and there have been many times that I have got a great shot but my eyes are shut or I am looking the wrong way or half blinking. So for photographic reasons they are a lifesaver. Sunglasses in this blog post, all from Debenhams in store.

Also, I have invested in a designer handbag- initially I wanted a Mulberry bag, but then discovered the Italian brand The Bridge. This handbag is like my baby (yes I am in love with it), I never thought I would buy a designer handbag, but I am so pleased I have. It totally sets off an outfit, when I have it with me I feel confident and it gives me so much joy. I picked one that I thought would be timeless and a colour that would go with most things.

I would love to hear your thoughts on keeping style simple?

    I’m totally going to take your sunglasses idea on board! Investing in good key pieces with other items to mix and match seems more cost effective too but having a luxe piece like your handbag can pull it all together and bring joy for years to come. Wise words from you and you look fab in those jeans!

      Morning Helen, thank you so much for having a read. Yes, I think to mix and match basics with a few investment items is the way forward. Plus items like a good handbag will last years. The sunglasses have made a huge difference, the ones I have been wearing are only cheap, about £11. Have a fab day, Liddy xx
