With the change in season and the promise of warmer weather just around the corner, it's the perfect time to re-evaluate and freshen up your wardrobe. The best way to start is to establish 5 key pieces that will form the foundation of your style. These pieces are ideally classic in shape and colour, can be mixed and matched with nearly everything else you own, and can be reworked for different occasions, whether it be to the office, on weekends or after-5.

The dress

A statement dress is a must in any woman's wardrobe. The Savannah Midi Shirt Dress is a perfect staple piece, the animal print is fresh and trending, yet classic. Throw a stylish black coat over the top while it's still cool, and pair with minimal sandals for when spring rolls around.

The skirt

A black midi skirt never goes out of style, and the number of ways it can be worn is only limited to your imagination. The Veronica Midi Skirt comes in a high-quality ponte fabrication, and the A-line fit is universally flattering. Wear with a cosy knit, a simple tank, or a delicate camisole. The possibilities really are endless.

The knit

A cosy knit is a must for those chilly winter days. The Mellow Crop Cardigan is a firm favourite for its ability to be worn multiple ways. Wear it buttoned up as a top, undone over a tee or tank, or even worn backwards for a unique take on the humble cardi.

The blazer

Every outfit becomes instantly more chic with a blazer over the top. The monochromatic houndstooth print of the Metro Blazer is an instant classic, and looks great paired with the matching pant, or simply thrown over a tee and jeans for an updated weekend look.

The pant

A pant in a matching or complementary colour and print to your blazer are a must. The Metro Pant works just as well with the matching blazer as it does with a blouse or knit in a neutral or pop colour. Wear them together as a set for work, or style them for the weekend with a knit or t-shirt and sneakers.
