This is Outfit Inspo with a difference.
Instead of random Outfits – this CLOSET KEEPERS series will build a wardrobe collection, full of pieces that will be loved and used in multiple outfit inspos to come.
In my work as a Style Mentor and Image Consultant many clients struggle with envisaging all the different ways they can use one piece in their wardrobe. This is to help you see how to build a wardrobe full of options.
In terms of budget I have made most of the pieces priced up to $400 – the cheaper pieces I have highlighted might be to indulge in a passing trend or I found a quality item at a good price. No tat here.
Last week I started the series with Closet Keepers Outfit #1 and #2 – read it here .
Here is outfit #3 – Corporate Chic
I called it that as I can see it easily being worn to an office – but I would wear this out to meetings or a chic dinner with business clients or even a fun night out.
1. Leopard Print (Statement Coat) - Next Direct – $104 Seen in #1 #2 - – BUY NOW
This now comes in yellow i notice since I first posted it last week. They have a great range of sizes. If you are really curvy you can opt for a statement coat with a more tailored shape – will add to the series.
2. Black Wrap Midi Skirt – Seed Heritage – on sale – $55.96 – BUY NOW
Everyone needs a quality black midi skirt in their wardrobe -I liked the wrapover detail here – show a bit of knee.
3. Mint Funnel Neck Textured Tshirt -Sportsgirl now on sale – $41.96 – BUY NOW
Funnel Necks are everywhere and mint is a great colour that looks good with monochromes, metallics and denim. This is a great option for those in warmer states too so you can still layer under a jacket. For cooler climes bring out the great scarves and wool coats to layer over.
4. Simple Black Leather Stiletto – Topshop – $119.00- BUY NOW
These just happen to be from Topshop but I have posted about good ones in Wittner, Country Road before – you just want something that won’t date. They look great with pants or pencil skirt – a staple that will come and go in fashion trends but will stay in your wardrobe and always look good with an outfit when you need it too.
5. Zac Posen Black Bag – The Outnet – $405 - BUY NOW
As seen before in #1 – put as much money as possible into this bag as you will see it alot !
6. Saint Laurent oval Catseye sunglasses – Matches Fashion – $300- BUY NOW
I wear sunglasses every day in Australia at some point – (lucky me) after all those years of rain in Scotland … I have used these in every outfit so you can see how versatile this shape is and invest – they work on a price per wear. Will elevate a basic outfit to chic and sleek. These are pretty reasonable I reckon.
7. Nars Lipstick – Mecca _ $35 – BUY NOW
A pop of colour – Pink is my favourite – works well as a contrast with greens but there is a huge range- lipstick just adds a touch of presentation to an outfit – no other heavy makeup needed.
