Back To Basics with Vivien Of Holloway

One of the issues I’ve always had with my wardrobe is that it’s seriously hotchpotch; I have lot of bold, patterned clothes that often clash and rarely go together. Last year (2016), I worked to remedy this by building a wardrobe of staples that I could mix and match. Flo is an expert in creating a cohesive wardrobe so I had to think like her a bit more!

My two favourite staples came in the form of a slash neck top and a circle skirt. I have a lot of patterned circle skirts and a lot of my tops are in less common colours. To make my wardrobe a little more user-friendly, I opted for ‘Flo’ colours – navy and red. With both of these pieces in my wardrobe, I had more outfit combinations to choose from.

Navy and red are such a classic colour combination and they never fail to look smart together! For this outfit, I added black boots and this gorgeous coat that I’ve previously blogged about.

I always love the quality of Vivien of Holloway clothing – they’re such a good investment. You can easily wear the top with jeans/trousers or you can pop it over the top of a dress. The skirt can be worn with a multitude of different tops – at Christmas, I teamed it with a roll-neck.

My make-up is the same as always. For my hair, I tried more of a forties look by pinning back my hair and fluffing up my fringe.

What are the foundations of your wardrobe? Which items do you always like to go back to?

Although the surroundings of these photos are particularly beautiful, it’s not nicest weather to be in without a coat! Thanks for putting up with my moaning @darktechsupport.
