My wardrobe and chest of drawers are constantly overflowing and I'm constantly buying more and more. I just can't get the hang of the whole 'a few key pieces are better than loads of clothes' kind of thinking. I like to have lots of options and create different outfits.

Saying that, there are staples in every girls wardrobe that you could just never go without. So I thought I'd pick 10 of the items I find essential in my wardrobe, and let me tell you now picking 10 was hard! I could've listed soo many more. You'll notice my standard monochromatic theme reigns on...

10 Wardrobe Essentials

10 Wardrobe Essentials by heart-autumn

1. Black Skinny Jeans
My everyday go-to. I've practically lived in black skinnies for the past 3 years. So easy to wear, dressed up or down, perfect for any occasion.

2. White Tee
The ultimate wardrobe staple. The timeless fashion trend. Everyone has a white tee or 5 don't they?

3. Stripey Tee
I love stripes. I have so many stripes in my wardrobe. They're really flattering and look great styled up or down.

4. Black Ankle Boots
Everybody needs a good pair of ankle boots. They're ideal for this time of year, coming into autumn, but remain perfect for all seasons really!

5. Crisp White Shirt
A classic go-to choice for something a little more formal. Perfect for work with tapered trousers, for meetings with a pencil skirt or for smart-casual affairs with fitted jeans.

6. White Kicks
The comfiest wardrobe staple. I love a good pair of trainers and I love them to be all (or mostly) white. 

7. LBD
The original wardrobe must-have that every girl is always told they need. Whatever the style, they can be a saviour to dig out!

8. Leather Jacket
My favourite kind of jacket. A good leather jacket, whether it be fringed or studded or whatever style you like, they add a certain edge to an outfit and just look effortlessly cool.

9. Black Trousers
Tapered trousers are a favourite of mine. All black or patterned, they make sophisticated outfits stylish and are comfy too!

10. Bright bag
When 90% of my outfits are monochrome and simplistic, I like to jazz things up with accessories. This mostly comes in the form of a brightly coloured statement handbag!

What are your wardrobe must-haves?
