New year, new wardrobe… or just about.
I’ve packed up again and am in Chile for the next 5 months (the photo above is the view from my apartment!). Since I will have to go through another transition from summer to winter, I decided to throw out old clothes in the spirit of the New Year and narrow my Chilean wardrobe down to a few essential items which can be worn across all seasons. Here is my list:
• The blouse
A loose and floaty blouse not only adds a sophisticated touch to any outfit, but is perfect for warm summer months. A nice collar can also peek out of a thicker jumper in winter.
• The plaid shirt
Replace a denim jacket with a plaid shirt when the evenings turn chilly. Extra hipster points if you wear with ripped jeans and a beanie. In winter, button up the flannel shirt to keep warm.
• The denim skirt
It was everywhere last summer, but no need to store it away! It accessorises perfectly with a turtleneck top, thick tights and statement necklace. For summer, wear with anything from a simple crop top to graphic strappy t-shirt.
• The LBD
This is a classic staple item for a reason. Black will always remain stylish and sophisticated whatever the season. I would pair it with a denim shirt and sandals over summer, which can easily be switched for knee-high boots and a chunky scarf.
• The midi dress
Perfect for the beach, visiting cities and going out in the evening. Keep the summer vibes going in winter by wearing it with a pair of tights!
Now you are set to travel light around the world, whatever the season!
