The Slay Babe Guide To Wardrobe Essentials

Updated: May 7, 2020

Fashion is cool but developing your personal style is where the fun happens. We've all read an abundance of fashion guides that tell you what you need to own and why but they all seem so dated and work on a 'one size fits all'. To us; especially over the last few years your wardrobe needs to be a reflection of you and represent your personality. As a massive fashion lover myself, I know for a fact that there are so many items that I have found have helped me to slay any event, no matter if it was an event, a concert, a job interview, lunch with my girls or a date night. I had managed to create a signature style and wardrobe filled with items that could be matched and restyled no matter the occasion.

Here are some of the key fashion items we feel every slaybabe needs to have in her closet.

A Slogan Tee or Graphic Tee

The beauty of a slogan and graphic tee is just how versatile they are. You can dress them up and down depending on the occasion. If you are going to the cinema you can team your slogan tee with a pair of jeans and a denim jacket and some converse. Then if you want to sass it up for an evening out with your boo, you could pair with with a faux leather skirt and sexy leather jacket and some heels. They are wardrobe essentials that allow you to switch up your look, all by changing a few items.

Blazers have really transcended over time and continue to be a key style item. It's the way you can switch them up and create a new edgy look that makes them a must buy purchase. Without a doubt, you need to own a black one as it can be worn with jeans one day and then with a structured pair of trousers and heels the next, like for an interview. When it comes to blazers, it is always good to invest in different lengths, styles and colours and see how you can instantaneously switch up your style. If you are starting off and haven't built up a collection it is recommended that you go for a double breasted one and a long length blazer as well as going for a pinstriped version and one in a bold colours like mustard, fuchsia or mint and ones made in different styles like Dogstooth and Tartan.

White Shirt

I absolutely can't get enough of a plain white shirt. It screams class, sexiness and sophistication all in one. Tell me one look that beats a crisp white and starched shirt paired with a pair of denim jeans. It's a look that anyone can rock and look and feel their best. Whether teamed with heels, boots or trainers. The white shirt and denim combo is always a certified hit. The great thing about it is that as much at it looks great with a pair of jeans, it also looks great with a skirt and trousers too so you really cannot lose.

Black Trousers

This honestly goes without saying. Your style cannot be defined without owning a nice tailored pair of black trousers. It's their versatility that make them so vital to your day to day style. Black trousers are perfect for work, a must have piece for a job interview and can be dressed up or dressed down depending on what jacket you wear or what accessory you team it with; being a glam clutch and heels or a rucksack and some converse.
