10 things every successful wardrobe needs

(click on the item for my recommendation of where to buy)

1. Hangers.
This is at the top of the list for a reason. Makes a crazy big difference to instantly upgrade your existing clothes. Spacesaving and ensures you feel like your stepping into your very own boutique. Love a grey or stone (avoid black unless you wear a lot of black)

2. Steamer

If you want to make your clothes look polished even through they are older or even if you like me do not have the time to iron then a handheld steamer is the way forward. Check out this Tefal one.

3. Pants
Ever since working with Triumph I was converted to their underwear, in particular their True Shape Sensation style and Amourette.

4. Full length Mirror
How can you be sure your outfit works, if you can’t see yourself? Don’t avoid yourself, you’ve probably done something right. Habitat and Ferm Living are my go – to’s.

5. Chunky Sandal (or trainer)
Comfort, modernity and edge are wrapped up in a chunky sole. My favourite brands are Hush, Camper, Dr Martin, Clergerie. (Click on the brand to see my favourite shoe!)

6. Wide leg silky trouser
Adds feminity, interest and ease. WFH or out in the evening. With a sweater or a blazer it will work. Mango, Jigsaw, Whistles and Harvey Nichols are my go to’s.

7. The I feel so bloated but still look chic dress.
So many around, here are some of my favourites: Zara, Monki, Neul via Goodhood, Wyse London, Essentiel Antwerp

8. A lift your tired face earring.
Pearls have defininely been updated in the last few years. I love these faux from & other Stories and I’m regularly recommending Olivia and Pearl.

9. A sense of pride & care. Our wardrobes are often a reflection about how we care and look after ourselves.

10. A playful attitude and a curiosity to get to know yourself better

As one client said to me today:’I can’t believe it’s taken me until I’m 64 to understand who I am. I’m trying not to be frustrated that I didn’t do it sooner’
