5 Closet Essentials | Style Edit

Happy Friday cuties,

Fashion is a fickle thing. Seasons change and what's "in" one day is "out" the next. Style, however, is a whole other matter honeys.

Despite the ever changing fashions trends, certain pieces of clothing are essential in a mans wardrobe.

1.Good Quality White T-shirt

Girl this is an absolute must. Once championed by the likes of Marlon Brando, the white t-shirt staying power has been exhibited by Harry Styles and David Beckham. It's fairly clear why, because this will go with everything you own. Invest in one cut from high quality cotton, ensuring it will feel better on your skin and not suffer at the hands of the washing machine.

Pair fashions safest bet with a pair of jeans in any colour, or worn under a suit.

2. Denim Jacket

Honey the greatest thing about the denim jacket is its layer potential. Denim jackets are perfect in the summer, for those days where you need a little extra warmth, and on the colder months. Pair with a hoodie and black jeans and you are good to go.

3. White Button Down Shirt

There is very little that won't go with a white button down shirt. Opt for a shirt cut from thick, soft cotton. Pair with a crew nick jumper for that casual weekend look.

4. Black Roll Neck

I LOVE a black roll neck bbes. Again this piece can be worn in a variety of different styles, and at different times of the year. A black roll neck will act as a layer in the winter months, and a feature piece in the summer time. Pair with black trousers, slip on's and a bold blazer for a smart night out outfit.

5. Short Sleeve Camp Collar Shirt

Let me tell you, when I was younger I was not a short sleeved shirt fan. But now that I am in my mid-twenties I am LIVING for a statement short sleeved shirt moment. Go for a bold print/colour, tucked in to a pair of trousers and your favourite loafers for a date night ready look.

What are some of your closest essentials and how would you wear them? Let me know in the comments - KD
