How to create a timeless wardrobe
I have always loved clothes and I used to love trawling the shops and changing my wardrobe with the season.
Once I hit my forties I realised that throwaway fashion was no longer for me.
I didn’t appreciate having to keep up with the trends any more it felt like hard work! I also didn’t like the waste that came with buying cheap, throwaway clothes.
What I wanted was stylish, fabulous clothes and accessories that would last season after season.
I think the key qualities of a timeless wardrobe are: unfussy, clean lines, practical, good quality and you must LOVE them. Here is my wish list of classic items for my wardrobe.

Well to be fair I don’t think I know anyone who wouldn’t!
This ladies Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 is primarily made from multi velvet and silver hardware and it is absolutely on trend and always will be. Isn’t it just delicious? The print is classic and the style is just timeless. It makes me sigh and it would be so practical too and of course it would always look so chic.
I would love a really beautiful pearl necklace. I had one for my 18th and loved it for many years but somewhere or other it got lost along the way. I think pearls are always fabulously pretty and always a little bit grand.
A stunning coat
I have always wanted a really beautiful coat but for some reason or other I always end up with some thing very practical. Actually I think the reason is being a mum! So I have parkas, macs, a denim jacket. All very nice but not classy.
I just adore this collarless Boden coat and I could see me wearing it season after season. I like the fun colour as well as the subtle check and the elegance of the style.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
And then of course I have to include something I have always wanted, that is a fabulous designer pair of shoes.
As a vegetarian of over 30 years I choose not to wear leather and so far designer shoes have pretty much never aligned with my ethical viewpoint. That is until Stella. How I love Stella. All her shoes are vegan and they are stunning.
I would wear these zip front point toe flats with absolutely everything! Want, want, want these shoes!
Little black dress
It seems I have been searching for the perfect LBD for years and years.
It still proves elusive so although I have 5 already I will continue my long search until I find the perfect one. Any recommendations of wear to look very gratefully received. It has to be out there somewhere,
So that is it, my timeless wardrobe wish list. What would you pop in yours? Is there something elusive you are still searching for?
