The Fashion Post | My Wardrobe Must Haves and Current Trends

On the whole, I aim to steer clear of wardrobe staples and must-haves. Although I see the logic in investing in pieces like a black dress or leather jacket which will see you through decades, I am a trends girl through and through. I would much rather spend my money on a colourful fad piece which will hang in my wardrobe for probably less than a year. Wow Adele, totally makes sense eh?

Looking through these outfit pictures I realised that each item I am wearing falls into the category of 'wardrobe must-haves' or at least, my wardrobe must-haves. So, please, allow me to talk ya through them.

On Trend Jeans 

Fashion trends come and go, but denim, denim always remains. Each season appears to bring in a new adaptation of the trusty old jean. Last season it was all about the straight leg jean, for SS18 it is all about the flare.

 As a girl who is not a fan of the classic skinny jean but is a lover of all things retro, the flared jean is a winner for me. Whether you are playing it safe with a kick flare or going all out with an exaggerated wide leg trouser, this trend is one which I am hoping will stick around. I picked up these babies from Asos around September of last year, and I have been wearing them religiously since.

Statement Coats 

Nothing spices up an outfit quite like a statement coat/jacket, which is perfect, because in Ireland, we be needin' them layers. Now I fully understand that this Topshop coat is a fad if I have ever seen one, but that did not deter me from marching up to that counter, debit card in hand to buy it.

 As I have already said, I am a sucker for all things colourful and retro, so this 60s silhouette combined with bubblegum pink had me at hello. Even if I will look back on the silliness of it in 2 years time and think 'What was I wearing?!'. 

The Turtleneck 

The turtleneck appears to be the most sensible choice from my must-have picks. A strong staple in my wardrobe for some years now, I have accumulated a number of colourful turtlenecks throughout my lifetime. This little white number from Shein is perfect for those days when I am feeling a little pale and don't want to get any skin out, while adding a little Scandinavian chic to my outfit (is Scandinavian chic a thing? Well I'm making it one).

Aaanyways, you will be sure to see me rocking turtlenecks for some time to come, it is probably about the only item in my wardrobe that will stand the test of time.

Let me know your wardrobe must-haves in the comments!
