Every year we seem to be bombarded with new trends and "must-have" items of
clothing to take you into the next season, and as lovely as the feeling of buying
new clothes is, sometimes I just can't afford to splurge!
Heck, I don't even have the wardrobe space...

This is where accessories come in to their own!
I keep my wardrobe fairly basic, and invest in timeless pieces. Like a good blazer,
white tee and pair of jeans that fit your body perfectly!
These classic pieces should stand the test of time (I've had this black blazer for
over 15 years!) but you can change the whole feel of an outfit with different jewellery, scarves
& accessories.

I've refreshed this classic outfit with an on-trend, rust orange cross-body bag (which can also be worn
as a clutch for the evening) and added this silky leopard print scarf to give the look a more
"polished" finished.

Here I've used an oversized, bold scarf to add an edge to my pretty basic, monochrome outfit, and tied in to the
colour theme with the black & white, faux-pony hair zebra print bag.

For this look I have featured the same black blazer as before, but this time teamed it with a skirt and cami to show off the delicate necklaces. I've layered two delicate charm pieces, and both are gold-plated with semi-precious gems from the Z For Accessorize collection. I've kept the star/moon theme with my earrings also!

What are your key wardrobe pieces, and how do you like to style them?
