When you find yourself staring at your wardrobe and feeling like you have nothing to wear, it’s easy to feel like the only solution is a complete style overhaul. We suggest you shop your wardrobe instead – adding in smaller pieces that will help bring a new year lift to your existing collection.
We’ve picked out three classic items – the white shirt, the trench coat, the little black dress – and paired them with the accessories that will turn a wardrobe essential into a statement outfit.
The White Shirt
Dress down your everyday work shirt for a Saturday brunch with some cotton chinos and a chunky knit scarf. Playful accessories in contrasting colours and textures add depth to your outfit and enhance those positive weekend vibes.
The Black Dress
That little black dress is too good to save for special occasions. Transform it into a work appropriate look by layering a fine knit underneath – look for something with voluminous sleeves to create a new silhouette.

The Trench Coat
It’s easy to get bored of your winter coat towards the end of the season – however much you love it. Make your look pop with a colourful cross-body bag, silk scarf and statement earrings to help transition this classic piece into Spring.
