Time to get back to basics!

In terms of your basic wardrobe, it is important to invest in quality pieces: classic items that can be worn year after year and which never go out of fashion. We show you how to very simply look smart.

If you need to pick one coat as an investment that will serve you for years to come, then we suggest this classic belted wool coat in camel from Essential Antwerp. This timeless piece will provide every outfit with some extra polish that pulls everything together. Its relaxed fit looks great when cinched at the waist to create a flattering silhouette, but you can just as easily let it hang loose for some no-nonsense, easygoing flair.

A classic turtleneck sweater is always a great staple piece to have in your wardrobe, and we love this version from Bellerose with a simple contrasting stripe at the end of the collar which adds that little extra something.
