  • Laura’s Wardrobe Staples

    As this issue is all about what to wear right now, I wanted to open my closet doors and share the staples I rely on time and again. I consider this my capsule wardrobe; the pieces I can reach for on any occasion, dressing them up or down, layering and respinning them. After all, the true value of wardrobe staples lies in their versatility. From a beloved trench coat to wear with (almost) everything, to outfit-transforming knee-high boots, these are the items I can’t live without. 

    Veronica Beard

    Cedar Striped Ribbed Pima Top£ 122.50

    “This is one of my best buys of the winter. Layer it under neutrals or clash it with prints.” 

    Arket

    A-Line Leather Skirt£ 235

    “A leather skirt is a sophisticated staple with true longevity; no matter the sartorial climate, you will always find pieces to pair with it.”

    Gianvito Rossi

    Hunter 85 Leopard-print Knee-high Boots£ 1,630

    “Whether I’m clashing motifs or adding print to a monochrome outfit, these boots have given my wardrobe a new lease of life.” 

    Laura Fantacci X Otiumberg

    Mini Vera Hoops£ 85

    “I designed these five years ago and they continue to be my most-worn hoops. The flat edge updates a classic shape.”

    Beulah London

    Ahana Nude Crepe Midi Dress£ 695

    “Beulah’s midi hits that sweet spot of making you look pulled-together, polished and feminine all at once.”

    Burberry

    The Chelsea Long Trench Coat£ 1,450

    “If I had to pick my number one wardrobe staple, it would have to be this trench coat.”

    Whistles

    Celia Kitten Heel Ankle Boots£ 195

    “I can’t survive without a great pair of ankle boots. The key to success is a slimline silhouette and walkable heel.” 

    Mulberry

    Small Hampstead Classic Grain Leather Handbag£ 795

    “This is the bag I keep coming back to, thanks to its great shape, practical size and stylish hardware.”

    Ulla Johnson

    Caasi Ruffled Cotton-poplin Blouse£ 250

    “Wear this cotton blouse with leather pieces now, switch to denim or chinos in spring.” 

    Joseph

    Cardigan Cashmere Luxe Knit£ 845

    “A belted cashmere cardigan in universally flattering stone is a real multitasker; wear it open or closed, over maxi dresses or jeans.” 

    Gucci

    Princetown Fur-trimmed Leather Loafers£ 720

    “Elevating weekend denim, as well as adding functional sophistication to your workwear wardrobe, this is the perfect trans-seasonal shoe.”

    Loewe

    Round-frame Leather-trimmed Metal Sunglasses£ 270

    “A 70s-inspired round frame is my go-to sunglasses silhouette all year round.”  

    Tibi

    Oversized Belted Faux Fur Coat£ 720

    “The one piece to add drama to a low-key outfit. Use it to elevate a simple knit and jeans.”

    Sea

    Clara Belted Cotton-blend Jumpsuit£ 375

    “This jumpsuit has real cool-factor. It’s one-step dressing at its best.” 

    Saint Laurent

    Classic Court Leather Sneakers£ 395

    “I bought these trainers almost four years ago and, cost-per-wear, they are still one of my best buys. Need I say more?!”
