Wardrobe Wish List with Farfetch

A couple of weeks ago I had a huge clear out of my wardrobe for two reasons; firstly to make some space and secondly, to rediscover my style. I’ve talked about the importance of staying true to your own style in other posts but I’ve recently found myself drifting further and further away from mine. It’s only too easy to get swept along in the latest trend or try to recreate an outfit you’ve seen look stunning on someone else. While it’s never a bad idea to experiment and push your boundaries, it also is important to bring it back to what makes you feel comfortable and what you think looks great.

Now that my wardrobe only contains pieces which reflect my style, I’m trying to figure out how to keep it that way! I’m the type of person who isn’t easily tempted to venture far from her comfort zone when it comes to fashion. Because of this, I run the risk of purchasing similar pieces over and over again. While I don’t want to lose my style, I also don’t want to become boring! I think we all have those days when we claim that we have nothing to wear, but it’s probably our lazy way of saying ‘I’m bored with my wardrobe’.

So in order to find a balance between familiarity and experimentation I decided to do what I always do when I’m in doubt, browse for inspiration. I came across Sarah Tippet from The Fashion Ache blog who created an amazing SS16 wish list a little while ago, which inspired me to create my own wardrobe wish list. A wish list is an effective way of collating pieces you love in one place and gives you the opportunity to see how that piece you’re not sure about fits in to your style.

I’ve teamed up with Fatfetch to put together the ultimate wish list for my own wardrobe. While I was doing this I discovered that there was a pattern emerging. I tend to gravitate towards simple, tailored pieces that have a classic quality. The colour palette of this wish list isn’t exactly ground breaking but I prefer to let the materials and detailing do the talking. Suede and leather paired with silver hard wear for those days when I want to throw on an outfit with an edge. While soft and delicate fabrics contrasted with a defined silhouette give a more sophisticated feel. It’s really important to me to choose timeless pieces that are versatile, I believe that is money well spent. And what I really love about a wish list is how easy it is to mix and match a new outfit. So no more of those ‘nothing to wear’ days!

    I have grown bored of my wardrobe as there is no theme as such. I tend to buy what is in the sale rather than what I like. My eye is drawn towards block colours yet I have a few floral items I wear but am not in love with.

    The fabrics of these clothes are of excellent quality. I imagine they would flatter almost any figure.

    Hi Ladies,

    Love reading your posts Anika, you have a great eye for what looks good and you’ve nailed my style.

    I’m really into keeping things neutral and varying textures. I’m big on minimalism, so quality over quantity is definitely my thing. INTO MIND is a fantastic place to start if anyone is considering re-vamping their wardrobe and wanting to find/hone in on their true style.

    Keep up the blogging

    Love Ashleigh
