FASHION: THE 10 ESSENTIALS TO HAVE

We promised you, here it is: the list of 10 timeless fashions to have in your wardrobe to pass the years and the seasons in style.Important. Because, as in decoration, there are also pieces in fashion that guarantee you a minimum of good taste. A beautiful white shirt, a leather jacket, a shawl, a blazer... Focus.

A WHITE BUTTON DOWN SHIRT

 

Easy. The white shirt, whether for men or for women, is undoubtedly one of the essentials of a successful wardrobe. With vintage jeans, chic pants, open over a summer dress, worn a little sloppily or traditional, you never get tired of them. It rhymes.

A LEATHER JACKET

 

Again, this is the promise of a good look. Preferably we choose a beautiful Perfecto that we can pair with (almost) everything we have in our closets. For those days when you're dreaming of being a rock star or having a rebellious mood, put away the traditional jackets and pull out the leather. Worn over a white T-shirt and jeans, over a floral dress, over a big wool sweater.... The "green" tip: we crisscross the thrift stores in search of a beautiful second-hand item (often much more stylish).

 

A BEAUTIFUL SHAWL

 

Absolutely, a beautiful shawl. It's the ultimate chic accessory and the best part, that's also why we love it, it's "practical". Easily transportable (on yourself or in a bag), it is the anti-cold friend that benefits our style. On a jacket, a coat, a dress... What is important? Do not hesitate to treat yourself to a model imagined in a prestigious woolen fabric for the outfit, elegance and resistance over time. Of course, a La Maison de la Maille model.

 

A (TRUE) JEAN

 

And not a full spandex model. Here again we try to find second-hand pieces like an old Levis 501 which still has its effect or (for those who are reserved at the idea of looking in the vintages hops-and we understand), there are more and more beautiful brands that are relaunching denim, real denim.

A BLAZER

 

It's the must-have fashion that can save an outfit. And good news, in recent seasons (years) it has made a noticeable hype comeback. If you want to play the fashionista to the max, you prefer an oversized model. For the more "first degree", it is fitted. But hey, booring a bit.

 

AN ALPACA SWEATER

 

What if we tried to ease off consumption a little to afford fewer pieces but only very good quality ones? A pretty alpaca sweater, turtleneck, round neck, whatever pleases you. It is the promise of never being cold but also of having a garment that looks good.

 

A PAIR OF WHITE SNEAKERS

 

Yes. With all due respect to those who see sneakers as the enemy of elegance, it is a fact that a beautiful pair of white sneakers makes a statement.

 

A BEAUTIFUL WOOL COAT

 

Essential. A wool coat, long or short, classic or not, colorful or sober... It doesn't matter as long as it is wool: to be warm and not to have to change it every year.

 

A JEAN JACKET

 

In the summer on top of a dress or T-shirt, in the winter under a coat (pop the collar, guaranteed wow effect), the denim jacket is everything whatever the season. Here again, either we favor brands with eco-responsible values, or we go searching for a nice vintage model.

 

A CRAZY CREATOR PIECE

 

Just for fun. Let's all have a crazy piece in our closet. Of the ones you never wear, eccentric, immutable. But we know we have it, we tell ourselves that one day it will be useful and that at worst, if not, we can say in 20 years that we have a collector's item.
