I am starting college in september and need a capsule wardrobe. What would you advise to be in there?

1. Lots of 100 denier black tights!
2. A selection of basic tops- short sleeve, ¾ and long, in basic shades (H&M stock good, low cost ones)
3. A good quality pair of ballet flats.
4. A good cut pair of dark wash jeans- for days when you just cannot be bothered!
5. A couple of long sleeved cardigans- one black, one camel perhaps; dependant upon on your personal style.
6. 2 Jackets; one long/medium), one short. A beige trench will see you well, or something wool and collared (warm, smart & on trend). Pick a basic colour that can go with anything, yet can be spiced up with scarves, gloves, hats and bags.
7. Prints (tee’s, knits & scarves): stripes (seen at house of Holland & Marc by Marc Jacobs- younger, fun designer labels) and leopard print.
8. A good black skirt.
9. Smart (ish!), plain, slightly tapered trousers.
10. a good leather belt, that can be worn on waist & hips.

Ask me anything
