If you’re anything like most of the team at Melan Mag, your wardrobe is bursting at the seams but every time you have something to dress up for, you stare unimpressed at the contents of your wardrobe, loudly proclaiming: “I have nothing to wear!”.
But have we been going about it the wrong way all this time? Rather than quantity, perhaps we should look to invest in a few quality pieces instead? Fashion experts have helpfully identified five key pieces of clothing every woman should have in their wardrobe.
The design team at fashion house Winser London, who have a number of celebrity clients as customers, spent months examining trends from the last nine decades to reveal the five key pieces.
The essentials consist of a smart white shirt, a confidence-boosting dress, a statement jumper, a sophisticated pencil skirt and a pair of wide-leg trousers.
