Whenever we go shopping we generally end up splurging a lot into one dress that we would wear for one occasion, one time in the year! And then, every morning when we head out for work we don’t have any clothes to wear, like ever! Sounds familiar?
Well, when it comes to building a flexible wardrobe and you want to be conscious and sustainable about your fashion choices too, keeping up with trend all the time can get tricky! You often wonder how some people can look like they have a variety of clothes and a never ending cupboard? Actually, the trick of making it look like you got a million clothes to wear lies in building your wardrobe with essentials! There are certain style, colours and accessories that can never go out of style, even when fashion seasons and cycles change throughout the year!
I am giving you a list-down of some of my wardrobe essentials that should make a way into your wardrobe as well the next time you go shopping! Having some of these basics can take you from a Monday to Sunday and a morning to an evening look minus all the hassles and drama! And trust me when I say this – but these are very small things.
