We're all guilty – Purchased something we were convinced we would wear, but once we hang it in our closet, it never comes out. The key to a great collection of clothing is to begin with basics. Once you have these, aim to build around these key items with fast paced fashion trends that come in and out every season without spending a fortune. These items are versatile, can be dressed to suit occasions and are always in season. Pairing these up with one another is the biggest problem solver when you get stuck for what to strut out in. Blacks and whites are the obvious choices for shades but if you're thinking to add a bit of colour to your closet, try to purchase pieces with matching colour tones. Here is our list of 12 wardrobe essentials in our closet you'll find yourself wearing over and over again.
  1. A collared shirt
  2. Killer heels
  3. Plain-coloured tank top (preferably loose-fitted)
  4. Fitted black blazer
  5. A good quality cut white tee
  6. A statement necklace
  7. Long sleeve denim shirt
  8. Pair of denim jeans
  9. Little Black Dress (LBD)
  10. A skirt that suits your body type
  11. Pair of ankle boots in a colour that compliments the most of your wardrobe
  12. Black pants

  1. As a society we are trying to live healthier lifestyles, encouraging fitness and nutritional awareness, however, our environment also plays an important factor in our health and well- being. Our busy lifestyles mean we are exposed to so many things throughout our day, not realising these small decisions we make impact our environment. The products we choose to buy or support effect our overall surroundings, new eco-friendly innovations are on the market and some small businesses have implemented environmentally friendly practices but as consumers are we doing enough to drive these changes.

    Hunter and Chase are a sustainable fashion brand doing their part to support the well-being of our environment. Using only natural biodegradable fabrics and caring for the environment by removing all plastic from their packaging. When shopping online, your goods will be wrapped in a branded cotton cloth bag and gift boxed to you. The inspiration behind the brand was being tired of the poor quality, cheaply made t-shirts that I decided to invent my own brand that supported sustainable fashion that lasted longer requiring you to own less. The t-shirts and tank top singlets are designed to provide affordable staple clothing items to customers. These can be worn as yoga cotton tank tops or simple cotton tops worn with jeans. The specialised cotton products provide a beautiful colour palette of t-shirts with many style options to choose from. With t-shirts designed for both men and women, you can shop the t-shirt boutique online guilt free.

Probably the most practical thing in our closet (as well as the most underestimated) is the white tee. The perfect partner to almost anything, a good quality white tee is invaluable. It says simple, casual and effortless chic. Aim for variety with your basics – V neck, crew neck, scoop neck, boyfriend baggy, long-sleeved and pocketed. This will allow wear for day and night styling. And no, you can never have enough t-shirts!

              

Co-ordinating your outfit may seem a little OTT, but it's definitely a trend that is here to stay and will follow through from 2016. The fashion trend, co-ordinating tops and bottoms, done well can look super chic and almost effortless. Crop tops, long skirts or short shorts, we love textured fabrics for this look, especially for winter. Here are some of our favourite fashion statement outfits for you to be inspired by...

The internet provides so much variety and sometimes shopping for the biggest bargain doesn't necessarily get you the best product. We can be tempted to buy because of the price, however when investing in a staple clothing product, like a plain white t-shirt, a little more care goes a long way. A staple clothing piece like a t-shirt is something you can wear with practically everything, here are a list of tips to buying the best t-shirts online

  • Ensure the t-shirt fabric is natural, this will mean it is a breathable cotton t-shirt or made from other natural fabric fibers, (note: anything mixed with polyester is not natural. Other commonly known synthetic fibers include, Elastane, Polyester, Polyamide, Nylon)

  • Read the description comments, this should tell you the t-shirts perfect fit

  • Read t-shirt reviews from other customers

  • View the product images and details, a model can always make a t-shirt look better

  • Research t-shirt brands available online, what other products, materials do they use,

    what does the company specialise in

  • Check the price, a quality cotton t-shirt should reflect a quality affordable price, in other

    words know what you are paying for and what makes it a standout product

  • Lastly, whether looking for men's or women's basics online, just ensure that you check

    the returns policy, especially if it is a gift idea
