Buying clothes for each season can be so much fun, having an excuse to buy a tonne of new clothes at least 4 times a year, just because the weather is changing. But, buying so many new fashion pieces can not only cost A LOT of money, that you might not be able to afford, but it can have a very negative impact on the environment, especially if you’re throwing away all of your old clothes. That is why it’s such a great idea to have staple fashion pieces that you can recycle from season to season. To give you an idea of the kind of things you can buy to save yourself some money, as well as helping the environment, here are 8 staple fashion pieces you can wear all year long.
1. A Pair Of Black Boots
A pair of black boots are one of the fashion pieces that you can utilise and wear all year long. Black boots are a staple in autumn and winter to keep your feet warm and dry, but are also great in summer with dresses and skirts. A great example is a pair of Dr Matren’s. Docs are a great investment pair of boots, they’ll last you a life time, are a great boot for the colder seasons and look great with dresses and skirts when it starts to get warmer to add a grungey edge to your outfits.
2. Cami Dresses
Cami dresses are perfect staple fashion pieces for every season. They’re great when it’s hot outside to keep you cool when you would really rather be wearing nothing; or in contrast can be worn with t-shirts and jumpers underneath when it start to get colder. Cami dresses are also perfect fashion pieces for formal events as well as casual and can be worn to the park or to a Christmas party and still look incredible.
3. A Denim Jacket
Denim jackets are such versatile fashion pieces. They’re great for layering in autumn and winter when you’re constantly going from being warm indoors to outside in the freezing cold. Denim jackets are also perfect jackets for summer evenings when it gets cooler, and can be kept tied around your waist until you’re ready for it and just look part of your outfit.
4. Denim Skirts
The perfect fashion pieces for all year round, no matter the season is definitely a denim skirt. Wear it with tights in the winter or bare legs in the summer; with a nice top for something fancy or a t-shirt or jumper to wear everyday, denim skirts are staple fashion pieces.
5. A T-shirt Dress
T-shirt dresses are great fashion pieces that you can wear all year long. You can layer up in autumn and winter by wearing a jumper over the top; is it a dress? Is it a skirt? It’s both, it gives you two outfits in one. Layer a t-shirt dress with a long sleeve striped top underneath in the spring for a different, more edgey look; and wear it on it’s own in the summer, because who doesn’t love a good t-shirt dress?!
6. A Check Shirt
Check shirts can be worn in so many different ways depending on the season. In cooler months these fashion pieces can be worn buttoned up as a shirt, open with another top underneath to add a layer of warmth, as well as layers to your outfit. But, in the summer when it’s too hot for layers, check shirts make great cover ups to wear over bikinis.
7. Midi Skirts
Midi skirts are perfect to wear both when it’s hot and colder outside. In the winter they look great with a good pair of black boots or trainers, and the same goes for the summer. Pair a midi skirt with a pair of sandals and you’re good to go. They’re great from protecting your legs from the cold, but are also breezy enough to keep you cool and protect your legs from the burning sun.
Trainers are the perfect fashion pieces in terms of footwear to be worn all year long. If you invest in a good strong pair they’ll not only last you way more than a year, but can be worn for both casual days out and those spontaneous trips to the gym.
