Fashion Staples for all Year Round

Hi everyone,
It feels like forever since I did a fashion post and I really miss them, so today I am bringing you another fashion post. I find myself reaching for certain pieces whenever I am on the go or the items I know are going to be comfortable. That's why today I am going to share with you my fashion staples for all year round and I think everyone needs in there wardrobe. If you enjoyed this post let me know in the comments and I might do a spring edition.

Leather Jacket:
If you don't have a leather jacket please tell me how. Honestly I do not know what I would wear if I didn't have a leather jacket. With almost every single outfit, a leather jacket just completes it. Mine is from Miss Selfridge but every high street brand at least sells one style of leather jacket. They can completely transform an outfit and since they come in so many different colours and styles, you are likely to find one that suits you. If you do invest in a leather jacket it is almost guaranteed, as long as you don't grow, to last you years and years. I have had that black one in the first image for a good 2 years and it is still going strong. Leather jackets is one of those pieces that will never go out of trend.

Skinny Jeans:
I love love love skinny jeans. My favorite ones are the Topshop Joni Jeans but I know not everyone likes them. Skinny jeans are just piece whether you are dressing up or down. Depending on what flatters you, you have the choice of high waist, low waist, mid-rise, rolled up, ripped the list is endless. When it comes to skinny jeans, I feel like it is an item of clothing you can really invest in because you are likely to get your moneys worth. I now have four pairs of Joni jeans and they might cost £36-38 each but I can confidently say I have had my moneys worth out of all pairs. Skinny jeans flatter all body types whether you are tall, short, curvy, petite, big bum, little bum, little waist, muscular legs, anything and everything.

To be honest, I am not a jewelry person but I adore my watch. I feel like a really beautiful watch can just be the perfect accessory to an outfit. Both high street and high end sell beautiful watches but paying good money for a high end watch is worth it because it is one of them pieces that will last you a lifetime. Watches again are always in trend and there are so many colours and sizes, your perfect watch is just waiting for you. They can also make great gifts for guys and girls.

Comfy hoodie:
When it comes to being comfortable a hoodie is always the answer. I have an embarrassing amount of sweatshirt/hoodies and they are all just so amazing. On a lazy day I wear a pair of leggings and a hoodie and it is the comfiest thing. Even if you are going out, throw on a leather jacket and some boots and you have a super casual outfit. If you want a super good place to get hoodies from, I would highly recommend Pink, Victoria Secret and even thought they might cost that little bit more, it is so worth it!

Again, another lazy day essential! I wear joggers more when I am having a day around the house, but if you want to wear them out, feel free. Joggers to me are just the most comfortable fashion pieces ever! Again Pink do some amazing pairs but H&M and New Look do some great affordable ones too. I usually wear joggers with a vest top or a T-Shirt and then if I get cold I will just throw on a hoodie.

Cross Body Bag:
I think a cross body bag is so much more sensible then a massive tote bag. Obviously if you need a lot of space a tote bag is the sensible option but on a day to day basis a cross body is all you need. I am now starting to grow a little collection of cross body bags but the one in the picture is a very small one from Michael Kors. In a cross body bag you would just keep your day to day essentials, for me that is purse, bit of makeup and hand sanitizer but it depends on your preference. Primark actually have some really nice ones at the moment and there are so many colours and styles you could get the possibilities are endless.

Good Quality Trainers:
Trainers to me are the stairway to comfort. Especially for a long day you don't want to feel uncomfortable or restricted in anyway. I think Nike do the best trainers and they can range from £50-£100 but they are so worth it. My favorite pair of trainers are my personalized Huaraches from Nike but as an individual, you should really spend some time testing and trialing trainers to find your perfect pair. Everyone is different so finding ones that best fit you are important. Trainers can pretty much be warn with anything, skirts, jeans, dresses, leggings, shorts and even though trainers are more for sports, there is no harm in being comfy.

I hope you enjoyed this post, comment below what your fashion staples are as I would really be interested to know. Have a great day!
