White & Black Camisoles

One of my favourite basic pieces in my wardrobe. They definitely are super useful and help build the core of so many different outfits for various occasions. There are many styles of camisoles, some with lace, others with embroidery, or even plain. They are all good options to explore. Another thing to look at when buying one is the material. The optimal camisole is silk, since it does not stick to your skin and has many other benefits, which I talked about HERE. Here are some links to shop: Theory | SUISTUDIO | Anine Bing

Silk Scarf

Such a luxurious accessory to spruce up any outfit. Truly ties everything together, and adds a touch of personality through the use of colour and pattern. A recent trend is to tie a silk scarf around a pony tail, or even wrap it around the handle of your purse. Here are some links to shop: Valentino Garavani | Gucci | Burberry

Leather Gloves

Leather gloves are a must-have if you live in a colder-weather location. They keep your hands warm and supple by preventing your skin from drying out and cracking with the cold. They are not bulky on your hands, which makes them more manageable and a better alternative when driving. Leather is a higher-quality material that will not wear down as easily as others, and stretches to your hand to give you the perfect fit. I shared a couple of stylish options in THIS POST. Here are some links to shop: Gucci | Max Mara | Agnelle

Black & Brown Leather Belts

Belts are a must-have in my life. If you are like me, I need to belt most of my pants, more so for practicality than for style. Black and brown are classic, neutral colours that pair very easily with black or brown shoes and bags. If you have been with me for a while, you know that I always colour coordinate those three accessories. As mentioned above, leather is a high-quality material and will make your belt last much longer. Here are some links to shop: Saint Laurent |  Gucci | Michael Kors

Timeless Capsule Wardrobe: Shoes

Black Leather Boots

Black boots are essential to any closet, especially when living in a four-season country! There are so many different styles, cuts, colours, and heel height options to shop, so when it comes time to find the ones for you, there are so many choices! Here are some links to shop: Charles David | Valentino Garavani | Christian Louboutin

Leather Riding Boots

This style of boot comes from English riding designs, specifically those of field boots, dress boots and hunt boots. Field boots were traditionally worn by military officers ranked “field officers” and are characterized by their black colour and lacing at the upper front part of the boot, which offered more flexibility. Dress boots are similar to field boots, however they do not have any lacing and are more structured. They are also mainly black in colour and some are cut extra high on the outside of the knee for added style. Lastly, hunt boots, which are traditionally worn for fox hunting, are much the same as dress boots, however they have a cuff at the top of the boot. Here are some links to shop: Lauren Ralph Lauren | Frye | Tory Burch

Sandals

Sandals are perfect for warmer-weather seasons as they leave almost the entire foot exposed. There are 23 different types of sandals, all of which alternate materials, cuts, and colours. There are numerous ways one can style sandals, and they can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. Here are some links to shop: Christian Louboutin | Saint Laurent | Chloé

Black Heels

If I could choose only one shoe to have, it would be a black heel. This is definitely the most classic shoe that has ever existed, and can be styled into virtually any outfit. Since this shoe will most likely be your most-worn one, it is important to prioritize quality and comfort. Paying a higher price for a shoe that will last you much longer saves time, money, and energy. Here are some links to shop: Versace | Christian Louboutin | Prada

Nude Heels (or White Heels)

Nude- or white-coloured heels are almost just as much of a classic as black heels. These are more typically worn during warmer seasons with lighter-coloured outfits. Here are some links to shop: Saint Laurent | Sam Edelman | Manolo Blahnik

Black Flats

Another great classic and a perfect alternative to heels, but with added comfort. This style of shoe is inspired by a ballet shoe and consists of a little or no heel. Just like heels, flats can be styled in multiple outfits, no matter the occasion. Here are some links to shop:  Salvatore Ferragamo |Tory Burch | Taryn Rose Collection

White Sneakers

White sneakers are my go-to casual shoe! They really bring an athletic vibe to the outfit and are super comfortable! Sneakers became part of pop culture back in the 1970’s; hip hopers would wear mainly Nike, Puma and Adidas, while rockers would wear primarily Converse and Macbeth. In recent years, the white sneaker has made a come-back, especially with last year’s dad-sneaker trend. Here are some links to shop: Prada | Valentino Garavani | Adidas

I am obsessed with this look! If I had an unlimited budget, I would be dressed in this manner EVERY DAY! Using neutral colours really creates an elegant and sleek outfit, and the high quality accessories make it look polished. Although this outfit is very expensive, investing in high quality items, fabrics, and brands ends up costing less in the long run. You will never have to repurchase the item, as they will last you a life time.

Inspiration Tuesday: Blush Duster

I love combining bodycon dresses with matching duster jackets. This is the perfect end-of-Summer outfit, great for transitioning into the cooler temperatures of Fall. Moreover, this light pink tone is one of the main colours in the Fall 2018 colour palette! To complete the look, I paired it with nude accessories to keep the focal point on the dress and duster combination. Wearing nude sandals helps to elongate the leg, since it gives the illusion that the shoes are just a continuation of the body. I finished the outfit with a delicate necklace to create a romantic and feminine vibe.
