A woman's closet- A key to her heart :)

Whether your closet has double doors, white marble flooring, glass cupboards and a sky high shoe rack as the centerpiece (seen on the fabulous Sex and the City 2), or you live from a small, bearly there cupboard... or a suitcase for that matter, Snob believes that a woman's closet is sacred - and should contain 10 essential items that will withstand the test of time, remain classic and forever stylish. These items, we believe, enable women of all personalities to get inspired, take a chance and feel fantastic. Wardrobe essentials are the building blocks to a solid and functional fashion style. They enable us to easily throw an outfit together at the last minute, or mix and match different pieces to create a new feel and a new look. These wardrobe essentials must be flexible, trendproof, fun and loved... And here they are:
  1. The Black Blazer - an essential for any wardrobe. It can be worn to work, to the shops or hotted up with a dress for a night out on the town. Black is a classic colour that can be worn with almost anything, and will remain timeless. Where to buy one? Zimmermann or White Suede
  2. Leather - Anything leather, whether it be a skirt, shorts or cool chick top, will add an edge to the outfit your looking for. Where to look? General Pants Co., Camden Market London (cheap), Phillip Lim, White Suede, the opshop or Ebay!!
  3. A classic pair of clogs - Whilst it is only in recent times that the clog trend as come to the forefront of media and news headlines, Snob believes that it will be here to stay, as 'the clog' look is super chic! After all... both fashion heavyweights Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel and Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton can’t be wrong! Where to buy? Gorman or Funkis online first and foremost. For a cheaper option- Sportsgirl, Santini or Wittner.
  4. Blue & Black Jeans - dress them up or dress them down, jeans will never go out of style. What brands? Sass and Bide, Bettina Liano, Cheap Monday and Ksubi. Cheap ideas? Country Road, Levi, Lee, True Religion
  5. LBD - loose or tight, long or short...the Little Black Dress will never cease to complete any eye-catching outfit. Accessorise it for a more detailed and interesting look.
  6. Leapard Print - my mum has leapod print pieces from the 80s and 90s, and I have continued this love with adding the print to my own wardrobe. Simple and effective- add a leapard print scarf to your outfit and you'll be laughing :)
  7. Brights & Florals - Whilst mostly worn in summer, floral is great in that it can liven up an outfit and make you stand out in the crowd. Teem any floral dress with a cute pair of sandals or clogs, or black tights and boots. Where? Zimmermann, Sportsgirl, Camberwell Market, Alice McCall, Josh Goot, Nicola Finetti
  8. Black stockings - a savour throughout winter!! Wear them with a bright pair of shorts from Gorman, a skirt from American Apparel or a dress of any kind. It will do the trick.
  9. Button-up Shirt - for the corporate woman or the hip chic, a shirt will sophisticate your look for day or night. Personally, American Apparel is the best of the best!
  10. 'That' dress - we all know what it is and how it works. It's the dress you have (or should have) in your closet that makes you feel a million dollars every time you put it on. Whether you wear it to that 21st, engagement party or sunday lunch, it will always be enough.
      Last but not least- my ever-evolving and building closet :)
