Often we find ourselves lunging for the next new, shiny, bright, overtly-printed goodie that has graced its way into our shop - and hey, we’re not complaining! At ANNA we’re all about more is more. But in doing said lunging, let’s not dismiss the key staples which will in fact make up the basis of our everyday wardrobes. In fact, these purchases can be the most important of all - after all, they dictate our day-to-day style and are versatile enough that they can be teamed easily with most other pieces you already own. So, are you feeling the need to be extra savvy with what you buy? Look no further than our selection of endlessly stylish key pieces to invest in now and thank yourself forever...
We find there are very few shoes we rely on as heavily as our loafers - you can team them with anything and everything, from a summer dress to your trusted trench and jeans. Sam Edelman’s ‘Loraine’ version are classic and chic, they’ll be in constant wardrobe rotation for years to come.
THE TAILORED JACKET
Tailoring is a safe bet whatever the weather, you’re suit is sure to stay crisp no matter what. A total all-rounder, try to opt for a different hue to the classic black or heritage checks - we think Munthe’s ‘Dietes’ jacket is perfect for injecting a dash of colour into a classic wardrobe must-have.
THE STATEMENT BELT
Do not underestimate the power of a statement belt. Isabel Marant’s ‘Yoli’ belt has the ability to transform an outfit without taking away the essence of the outfit itself. Trust us, you won’t regret adding this number to your life.
THE CLASSIC SHIRT
No well edited wardrobe is complete without a classic white shirt, and Weekend Max Mara’s ‘Zanna’ shirt ticks all the right boxes. It’s endlessly versatile, just as appropriate in a meeting as on city breaks with your other half, and slides effortlessly into any wardrobe.
THE DENIM JACKET
One of the hardest working pieces in our wardrobes, the humble denim jacket can be worn as outerwear or layered under a lightweight coat. Rag & Bone’s version has been perfectly distressed to give off a love-worn feel of an old favourite, and a favourite for life it will be!
Ok we admit it, nothing renovates your outfit as quickly as a new bag. Having said that, there’s nothing as heavily relied on in our wardrobes than a classic leather bag -- the day-to-day kind that stores all your daily essentials with enough extra room for impulse purchases. Look no further than Anya Hindmarch to fulfil all of your organisational needs.
