When it comes to re-wearing items that already live in your existing closet, often it can feel all too easy to rely on your tried-and-tested wardrobe staples. Maybe you're reluctant to put on the jeans you've owned for years? Or feel like all your friends have already seen that jumper you absolutely love? Well, we're here to tell you there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. After all, they are called staples for a reason.
The dependable items that make up the foundation of your wardrobe always become a high priority at this time of year, as you know they're the exact pieces that will get you through the changing of the seasons. They're also the items you know can easily be mixed and matched and will look good no matter what you pair them with.
