  • Tailored suit
  • Casual knitwear
  • Oversized shirt
  • Trainer

White t-shirt

White t-shirts top the list.

Choose a style you can wear under knitwear and jackets and that looks fabulous with your jeans and shorts, and you will wear this essential item all year round.

Comfortable jeans

Whatever the season you will need a pair of comfortable jeans.

Dress them up with a shirt, blazer and boot or heel.

Swap out the boot and heels for a slide and singlet or t shirt and throw over and oversized knit when it gets cooler to keep it casual.

Tailored suit

A tailored suit in a quality fabric makes a stylish statement and is a versatile addition to your wardrobe.

Wear the pants with a knit if the event is casual.

The jacket worn with jeans creates a stylish weekend look.

Black or dark navy are the ideal options for year-round wear.

Casual knitwear

Whether it is a cardigan or a jumper, a casual knit works year-round.

Through it over your shoulders for cooler evenings during the warmer seasons.

Perfect on the plane or in the office when the aircon blows cold.

Choose a monochrome colour that works with most items in your wardrobe to maximise its versatility.

Oversized shirt

Is there a more flexible item to own than an oversized shirt? We think not!

Wear it over your swimwear or with your jeans.

Worn with tailored pants instead of a jacket makes a statement. Add chunky jewellery for maximum style impact.

Half tuck, full tuck or not tucked in at all will take you from the board room to the beach.

Arguably, white is the most versatile option. Alternatively, try a blue one or one with a wide stripe.


A trainer is the last item on the list.

Try a white or metallic version.

Fortunately, in a post COVID world the prioritisation of comfort means a quality trainer is as welcome in the office as at brunch.

Choose a colour and style that compliments your existing wardrobe items including dresses and skirts.

Other options

Dresses and skirts did not make the list.

Sizing can be a challenge when it comes to a year-round staple but it you have found one congratulations.

This is a nirvana most of us will not find.

Accessories are omitted. We think they are essential but which ones you have on your must have list will be very much an individual choice. Likewise, for lingerie and sleepwear.
