Our wardrobe resolution this 2019?
Do not underestimate the power of a simple, fuss-free capsule wardrobe.
1. The Perfect Jeans
It goes without saying that jeans are a major part of our daily uniform. They don’t always have to be limited to a more casual aesthetic either, you know. Find a pair that fit you well, are flattering on and make you feel good. POCO By Pippa have a huge range of washes, fits and styles to choose from. You can see everything here.
2. The White Shirt
A crisp white shirt is the ultimate staple piece. Simple and understated, it’s something that can tie a look together so seamlessly and effortlessly. Wear it with your fave jeans, court heels and a blazer for a business chic feel or pair with denim cut-off shorts and trainers in the summer. The styling opportunities are endless with a white shirt.
3. The Camel Coat
We’ve been raving about the camel coat for what seems like forever on pippa.ie at this stage and it’s still going to reign supreme in 2019, trust us. You can’t go wrong with a camel coat – it’s a timeless classic piece that looks incredibly chic on everyone. It has that magical style power of instantly giving that polished effect to any outfit.
4. The Biker Jacket
Another firm favourite piece of ours has to be the biker jacket. We highly recommend investing in a high quality biker jacket, as it’s one of those pieces that will never go out of style. It can be worn in any season (especially in Ireland!) and its versatility is second to none. Worn over dresses, jumpers, shirts – it looks good with everything, giving an edgy twist.
5. The LBD
Also known as a ‘wardrobe hero piece’, a little black dress is an absolute saviour on those days or nights when you’re at your wits’ end as to what to wear. Add tights, ankle boots/ballet pumps and a blazer for daytime chic or style it with a pair of your favourite heels, throw on a longline coat over it and you’re good to go for a glam night out. It’s probably one of the easiest and chicest pieces to style.
6. Court Heels
There’s no denying the timeless appeal of court heels. Their flattering, leg-lengthening quality makes them an absolute wardrobe essential for every lady, no matter the season. And they are a dream to style whether it’s with jeans and a chunky knit or a chic dress or trouser-suit.
7. The Cashmere Knit
Cashmere is an investment and worth every penny, in my opinion. Once you wear your first super-soft piece of cashmere, it’s really hard to go back. If you’ve been following me a while, you’d know I’m a huge fan of Irish designer Lucy Nagle’s cashmere collection – she has such gorgeous pieces. You can see her collection here. I wear mine all the time. We’ve included some other brands below too.
8. White Trainers
Nothing beats the comfort of feeling like you’re walking on a cloud while still looking chic, who’s with us? We especially love the look of white trainers – paired with jeans, trousers and dresses at the moment. The main thing is they need to be kept clean! My favourite for style and comfort has to be Skechers.
9. The Trouser-Suit
The trouser suit has become a style staple in our wardrobes over the past few months and we reckon they’ll be even more popular in 2019. A matching blazer and trousers combo is the epitome of preppy chic. It looks equally as fab with a white tee & runners as it does with a silky cami and heels. It’s the perfect outfit that will take you from the office to drinks.
10. The Watch
A watch is an accessory we’d definitely recommend every woman investing in. It simply adds a touch of elegance to any look. We especially love the look of stacking some simple thin bangles or bracelets with it for even more style points. It doesn’t have to be overly expensive or designer either.
11. Ankle Boots
Ankle boots are our hero shoes as they literally go with EVERYTHING. Jeans & a cosy jumper? Ditsy tea dress? Slinky cami & a-line skirt? Yes, to all of the above. It’s the perfect in-between style that works for casual days as well as slightly more dressy occasions.
