Wardrobe Staples

Since taking the decision to get a new wardrobe, i've been patiently sourcing looks and ideas that i'd love to incorporate. I've also been looking at regular stylish people on the streets and also celebrities to get ideas. If you're a fashion follower - however mildly - you'll notice that the leather jacket and a mens-style watch are two staples in a fashionista's wardrobe that go a long way! Even the robot stylist rachel Zoe said this in her book so i guess i'm on the right road hehe. But really, if you invest wisely in these two items, it'll last you a really long time and also give you different stylish ways to wear your ensemble.
I currently own a Guess mens-style wristwatch and i have to say that i'm always wearing it irrespective of the occasion. It did cost me quite a bit but it's been almost 3 years since i've had it and i havent even changed the batteries yet! I can easily wear it daily to lectures or even on special nights out. I'm yet to own a leather jacket but i'm very sure it'll be a great addition to my wardrobe as it can be worn with jeans, over blouses and floaty dresses. It can also be used to toughen a floral dress to create a boho-rock chic look. How hot will that look?!
You can get quality leather jackets from ASOS, Sportsgirl, French Connection and Ben Sherman to name a few. Or just head to your local high street or even Myer and David Jones and browse what's on offer. Make sure you're patient when choosing a leather jacket and especially a wristwatch. A wristwatch is one of those accessories that can make or break a look.
