Working With basics

More and more, my outfits revolve around good basics. At the moment, I wear mostly crew neck jumpers,  some sort of button-up shirt and trousers. It has become my Winter uniform and has saved me from many fashion induced headaches while getting myself together in the morning. While I must admit it isn’t the most exciting or adventurous sartorial choice, it suits my current lifestyle.
So when The Style Standard approached me to review some of their pieces, I jumped at the chance. The whole concept of the site is to offer a carefully curated selection of wardrobe basics. Essentially, they source what they think are the ultimate capsule wardrobe items and put them all together on a site. While I am not convinced there is such a thing as a Universal capsule wardrobe, I found a few items from my list of basics on the site. My picks: a cashmere crew neck jumper, a classic breton top and a blazer with leather lapels.
I will show you my other picks soon, but for now, here’s how I styled the jumper – jazzing up basics. 
I am wearing: Jack Brodie jumper c/o The Style Standard, Miss Selfridge blouse, Topshop trousers, vintage Ferragamo pumps, CW by Carin Wester coat, MCM bag.
