The 3 Wardrobe Staples That Every Woman Needs

I've been milling around for almost 3 decades and if there is one thing I've learnt it's that you can't go wrong sartorially with decent pair of jeans, a grey tee and a classic watch.  This tried and tested look has become a firm favourite on days when I'm short on time but I can't afford to look a shambles. I keep the look fresh by switching up my accessories and make up.

My go to jeans are petite boyfriend jeans from Topshop, my tee is an old favourite from COS and my watch is from Daniel Wellington. I've gone for a sports luxe style with rose gold finishing but you can find more classic styles from the brand here.  You are also in luck as you can get 15% off any item in the collection with discount code 'amuDW'. Valid until 9th August 2016. 

THE 'WHY IS MY LIFE LIKE THIS?' LOOK

This is a look for those days when you have back to back life stuff. You are up at 8am and you've got to squeeze in Ikea/food shopping/a visit with your grandparents/drycleaners/lunch with a friend/cinema with another friend and there is 50% chance you will run into your ex. I keep my face mist and lip balm to hand so I can refresh on the go. 

THE 'IS THIS A DATE OR ARE WE JUST FRIENDS' LOOK

He asks to hang out but doesn't makes clear if it's a group thing, a just a friend thing or the most romantic date of your life. You don't want to go too hard but you don't want to look like a slob either.  Go for the best version of your most casual self. 

THE 'I DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS NIGHT WILL END' LOOK

Everyone has that spontaneous friend who doesn't believe in plans. She's all lets go out and you don't know if that's a chill alfresco dinner or partying on a boat till dawn. This look covers all bases and I would highly recommend going 'big hair don't care' with it.
