I’m really sorry about the lack of posts recently, work has just been piling up and with my GCSE’s less than a month away I’m pretty stressed and overflown with revision but I’m trying my hardest to put out some posts for you all. So sorry this one is a little late but I hope you understand!
So I want to start doing more fashion-related posts here on my blog because I’m actually more passionate about clothes than I am about makeup (believe it or not) but I haven’t been sure of how to incorporate this into my blog. So to kick things off, I’ve taken some photos of my favourite items in my wardrobe to show you, in my opinion, 5 items that are essential and must-haves in every girl’s wardrobe.
1. Casual Jumpers
These are perfect for any occasion; they’re super comfy and look great. I especially love them to act as the base for an outfit where I can layer different patterns and textures on top like scarves, jumpers and jackets to create a composition of different patterns and colours. The jumpers I’ve photographed below are actually all from H&M from their ‘Divided’ range (which is amazing by the way). This is a great shop for relatively affordable clothes that are still great quality and really nice!

2. Comfy T-Shirts
So this is quite an obvious one but instead of just the usual white tee, I love wearing band t-shirts or t-shirts with some kind of subtle design on the front. These are just crucial for any easy outfit to throw on a pair of jeans with and look presentable. The tops I’ve shown below are a Lynyrd Skynyrd top that I love and a Grateful Dead t-shirt which are both from Topshop. They supply a brand called ‘And Finally’ which sell lots of great t-shirts.

My next wardrobe staple are shirts. I think that shirts are incredibly versatile so just having one is probably enough: you can buy them oversized and wear them open or tied around you waist over jeans or shorts. You can wear them done up, over skirts or over dresses. For this reason I think shirts are must-have for all year round. The shirts featured below are all quite different; the first one is from New Look which I like to wear both done up or open as it is slightly oversized.
The second one is actually from the Mens section of H&M and is a really long oversized shirt that I am in love with – I like to wear this as a sort of jacket over the top of plain t-shirts or jumpers. The last photo is of another shirt from H&M which is actually meant as a dress but because the fabric is quite think I love wearing is as a spring jacket!

As I was saying earlier, I love to layer and scarves are essential to recreate this look as well of obviously adding some warmth. But now that we are heading into the warmer months I like to wear thinner scarves to add a pop of colour to an otherwise plain outfit or to add more texture to one-dimensional look. So some of my favourites are featured below from shops like H&M and New Look but all of the well known high street shops have a great selection of scarves.
5. A good pair of Jeans
So I couldn’t write a ‘wardrobe staples’ post without mentioning a good pair of jeans could I? It’s quite an obvious choice as it’s just the basis of every outfit for me. But to change it up a little I’ve featured a photo of my mom jeans from Topshop. These are a looser fit than regular skinnies, are high waisted and taper at the ankle (so aren’t quite as baggy as boyfriend jeans). I really love these to add a twist on an ordinary outfit. They create quite a 90’s vibe and I just think they look great with a cropped jumper or a shirt (like I featured above) loosely tucked in in the front.
I hope you liked the post, Delilah xx
