After all, these essentials will be the foundation of your wardrobe, anchoring the statement pieces that you pick up along the way.

Blue Denim Jeans
Whether they are cropped, flared, bootcut or skinny, every woman needs a pair of jeans to hug their figure – this is key to looking slimmer as well as an instant mood-booster. If you choose to only own one pair of blue jeans, opt for a darker denim as they are not only super slimming, but they also work for a wider range of events. Pair them up with an ankle boot, a sneaker or a sandal for daily errands and at night, you can style them with a pair of pumps for a stylish ensemble.
In Australia, there is no fabric more crucial to our wardrobe and outfits than good, quality denim. It can be worn around the house (if stretchy and comfortable!), to breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. It can help make a blazer look casual and is in its finest form when worn as jeans with a plain white tee and black or even leopard print heels. However, other than jeans, denim comes in all shapes and forms. Take the classic and trusty denim jacket for example. Keep it simple and classy all year around with a basic denim jacket – no frays, no holes, no patterns, just good classic denim. The best thing about denim jackets are that they never go out of style and can be worn through every season. Simply wear it over a cute floral dress, add a boot, sneaker or sandal and you’re good to go.
Classic White T-Shirt
Is there an item any more versatile than a quality white tee? This simple white t-shirt will forever and always be a sample piece in every wardrobe, every season, every year and the more the merrier in your wardrobe. Whether you want to layer under a jumper, style tucked into a skirt, or let it hang over the top of some denim blues, there is nothing quite as essential as a great white tee. Not so basic? Try a fun print to liven up your look.
The Perfect Blazer
Even if you don’t work in an office space where you need to be donning pencil skirts and shirts, every woman should own at least one blazer that is flattering to her silhouette. If you have never really found a blazer that fits you perfectly, that’s ok and what tailors are for. Everyone bodies are different and not everyone is going to fit into the cookie cutter patterns of clothing. Ensure that the shoulders and sleeves are not too big and sitting neatly on your body. It’s also always good to have a blazer hanging ready in your wardrobe, whether it’s for a job interview, or simply jazzing up your denim jeans and white tee
