The Breton

EJSTYLE - Forever 21 faux leather biker moto jacket, Zara Denim shirt, F21 breton stripe t-shirt, Forever 21 lace up black skinny jeans, Zara black suede pointed toe pumps heels, Balenciaga le city bag, OOTD

In today’s post there’s quite a few of my favourite wardrobe staples, pieces that I continuously buy slightly different variations of and wear all the time.  The Breton Stripe tee; literally a piece that I couldn’t live without!  This particular tee is from Forever 21 and was under £10, so incredibly inexpensive…but very valuable to my wardrobe.  Secondly the denim shirt, which you’ll have seen in so many of my posts, and that’s simply because it is so versatile.  SS15 brings back the love of denim and double denim so no doubt you’ll be seeing it next season too.  I bought this shirt from Zara for £29.99 about 2 years ago but you can find so many similar options (linked below).  Thridly, the biker jacket.  Again this is another inexpensive purchase at under £30 (faux leather) but I do have over 10 faux and real leather biker jackets, and I would wear one every day if my conscience allowed me 😉  The black skinny jeans are also high up on my list and I always tend to have ‘stock’ of about 5 or 6 pairs but with slight varations in style.  These lace up skinnies from Forever 21 are one of my Isabel Marant look-a-likes and can add a real designer feel to an outfit.  Lastly, black pointed toe pumps; I would say they can be suede or leather but there’s just something I favour about suede, despite how impractical they are.  These ones were a Zara sale purchase over a year ago and they’re still going strong!  They great thing about these shoes is that they automatically amp up an outfit.  If I’d worn converse or even boots with this outfit it would be a completely different look.
I’m toying with the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe from say 10-12 of my wardrobe staples so if you’d like to see a post like that then please leave me a comment below 🙂

    I, for 1 would love to see a capsule wardrobe from you. Also love the look today, bought a cream with thin black stripes from m & s last week but paid almost £20 for mine. Worth it though

      Okey Dokey, I’ll work on that capsule post then 🙂 Breton top are always worth it, they never go out of style so you always get your money’s worth! x

    Perfect, I also love a breton stripe top and one of my closet staples is a black tailored blazer.
    Definitely would love to see the capsule wardrobe post please!

      Oh yes you can’t beat a black blazer, I have hundreds, my fiance thinks they’re all the same but it’s like red nail varnish…they’re all different lol

    Hi what size is your faux leather biker jacket and your All Saints leather one?

    • 28th January 2015 / 11:14 am

      They are both a size 10 🙂 x

      • 30th January 2015 / 8:58 am

        Great thanks. Will give the Romwe one a go. Which do you prefer your Romwe or your Forever 21 – they do look v similar. I presume you are 10 in the Forever 21 too.

        • 30th January 2015 / 7:01 pm

          Yes both a size 10. They are almost identical but I was sent the Romwe one so I just alternate the two so one doesn’t get worn out.
