All The Clothes You Need For 2017

the 2017 fashion edit

Oh how I want some of my favourite fashion bloggers to write a post like this…

With each changing season I feel like I never know what to wear. I mean there are clothes in my wardrobe don’t get me wrong, but I’ll look at them all and just think “meh” and I hate wearing clothes I don’t feel comfortable in. Sadly unless I fancy going around naked all day long (which I imagine would be both freeing and chilly…) then I have to just pick an outfit and wear it regardless, even if
I really don’t want to.

This is the guide to stop those moments from happening, or at least I hope it is!

So for each season in the year, I’ve created a little fashion edit that’ll give you a run down of all of the staple clothes that I think will easily get you through those “What the hell do I wear?” moments. Obviously everyone’s style is different but in my eyes, these are all timeless pieces that can stay in your wardrobe for years to come as well, pieces you can wear again and again. I can almost hear my wallet running away while I type this but… here we go:

(PS, Excuse me while I shop my own blog post)

  • Love this post and your photos are fabulous!. I want to start looking through those things you've chosen and start shopping ASAP. I'd always been meaning to come up with some sort or list of things I wanted/needed and I think looking at the things you've chosen you've saved me quite a bit of time. Always love reading your blog posts and love the way you write and present things. You have a real talent πŸ™‚

    • You're really too nice Phoebe, thank you so much! I'm about to go back and shop my post too, so I'm really glad you found this helpful and hopefully you'll like the items I picked πŸ™‚

  • Love this concept!! I am very much a winter gal, and currently its Summer in Aus, so reading this has gotten me REALLY keen for the colder months! Scarves, scarves and more scarves!

    • I'm the exact same, I can't wait for summer to be over here in Melbourne- I'm so so ready for Winter!

  • Love your outfit – chic and simple. I like new seasons and trends, but also think it is better to buy one item that will last several seasons and will always be a staple then constantly follow all trends and spend all the money !xx

    • Thank you! I tend to feel the same way, I've found over the years that the trend pieces I buy I just end up donating in a few months anyway because I get tired of them.

  • Wow, love this jacket! It looks so special and efortless at the same time!
    Lucie, xx

  • Love your outfit, I have a similar style to yours =o) I have a few pieces in my wardrobe that are options for all seasons and then a few seasonal pieces. I do like to splurge on some trends, such as the off the shoulder tops! Love those =o)

    • You're right, that does sound really similar to how I like to dress as well!

  • I love this post! You picked so many beautiful pieces! Also your outfit is so perfect…that blazer is amazing!

  • OTK boots have been such a lifesaver this winter, actually! It saves me from putting on 1 million layers under my trousers. I hate the transition from winter to spring here though, it's always so confusing and it can be super cold + super stuffy all in a day. Hopefully spring hurries up and I can go out wearing a nice trench and my fave dresses soon.

    • See now I'm hoping the weather here gets freezing, I missed out on wearing OTK boots last winter but this year I'm caving and buying a pair!

  • This is such a good idea for a post. Love those shirts too, so classic. I often wake up and look at my wardrobe like…. meh. I keep thinking about trying the whole capsule wardrobe thing. x

    • Thanks so much Tiffany, yeah I've been feeling really 'meh' about everything in my wardrobe as well lately. I'm thinking I need to clear it all out and shop this post, haha

  • So many fabulous picks! I'm all for cosy, chunky knit jumpers, and I love your camel-coloured jacket selections too. I keep reaching for my classic camel trench these days!

  • I love all the colours you've picked, and you look so classy!

  • This is a fabulous idea for a blog post! I have those "meh" moments way too often…and have a habit of wearing the same pieces over and over again, despite having a ton of clothes. All of your staples are so classic and versatile. Thank you for sharing!


    • Thanks Lindsey! The same thing happens to me, I can get so stuck wearing the same outfit throughout the whole week/weeks!

  • You look simply cute. Loved your outfit.

  • Love this outfit and those bootss!! xx

  • You've covered so many great picks!
    I am exactly the same, a full wardrobe but still nothing to wear x
    Really lovely post xx

    Liz | LotsofLoveLiz β™₯

  • This is a great list. My favourite season to dress myself is summer (and spring) and I love the off the shoulder trend,I bought so many off the shoulder dresses and tops last year and I cannot wait to wear them again!


    • Thank you! I'm the exact opposite though, I'm alright in summer and spring but I much prefer autumn and winter fashion πŸ™‚

  • These are such lovely looks, you look beautiful. I haven't bought my self any new clothes for over a year, you have inspired me πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Sophie, I love your description of my outfit as well! So so happy you liked the style of this post as well, I'll try and keep all the shop links updated πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you! Hope you have a great day too and I'm so glad you enjoyed this post πŸ™‚

    • Ah thank you Honey! I'll check your post out now πŸ™‚

  • Lovely post! I've always wished I was friends with some of my favorite bloggers in real life so I can just sit them down and ask them for fashion advice, ahahah. Like, I always find myself buying really cute and unique dresses and fancy skirts, that aren't really practical for the day-to-day. So, I needed this. πŸ™‚ Also, you make literally everything look so chic!

    • You're way too kind Julia, but thank you! Ah I seriously wish I could be friends with my favourite fashion bloggers in real life too, I'd probably never stop asking them to go out shopping with me though haha

  • I always have one of these moments where I stand in front of the wardrobe and complain that I have nothing to wear. I need to get rid of the things I don't wear so I have a space for some pieces that I'd wear all around the year. Totally agree with your classics, if you have these classics then it is easy to come up with something you'd like to wear. Also love your outfit, smart and chic!

    • I think I'm going to go through my wardrobe and cull a few pieces too, I need to make space for the clothes I actually want to wear as well!

  • Looking so amazing. I love your dazzling style and sooner going to buy this for my lovely sister. Thanks for the post.

  • These pictures are stunning, such lovely photography and you look lovely of course! This is such a classic outfit, I love those boots, no surprise that they're Asos! They would literally go with so many outfits all year round, a really lovely idea with the seasonal style edits too! I feel the same way, forever indecisive and wondering if my clothes are really "fashionable" enough. Great post πŸ™‚

    Xo Gemma

    • Ah thanks for the love Gemma and thank you for your comments about my photography too!

      Asos do some great boots don't they? I really love a lot of their coats too. So happy you liked my little edits as well πŸ™‚

  • Your coat has such a classic cut. I have a similar one in burgundy and I love it.
    Amazing shopping choices darling! Every woman needs those staple basic pieces in her wardrobe.
    Happy Friday!
    Love from

    • Thanks Tatjana, so glad you like the coat. For me I'm not really sure if I see it as a coat, a jacket or a long blazer!

  • Such a great post! I feel as if I always fail in the fashion department but will definitely be taking some tips from some of what you've chosen!

  • Your outfit looks so classy! Asos boots are the best!!

  • My partner and I are planning on having a clothes clear out soon because we have zero wardrobe space and there seems to be piles of clothes just appearing all over the house. Of course, I'm not using this as an excuse to buy more clothes (I totally am), but there are a lot of pieces in this post which caught my eye. I'm usually the type of person that really doesn't make an effort when it comes to fashion – I just throw on what I can find and go – but after seeing these photos of you in that gorgeous blazer, I think I might try a little harder! Great idea for a post!

    • Wow that makes me so happy to hear and I would definitely use that as an excuse buy more clothes as well πŸ˜‰

  • These are great tips and I love those boots. I just got new Sorel ones for Christmas but these might be more adorable πŸ™‚ Access the Dark web Questions to ask girl watch movies online live free Sports sites
