Angie Smith’s 'Buy Less Wear More' edit:

Part of my job as a stylist when I first meet a new client is to go through their existing wardrobe.

After doing this for 20 years I was seeing them same pattern, people were re-buying items that they already had and their wardrobes were overflowing with clothes so that they couldn’t even see what they did have to wear and were always complaining that they had nothing to wear, when actually it was quite the opposite.

I found that when clients bought less they actually found that they had more to wear.  I believe in investing in clothes that are either classic pieces ‘ wardrobe staples’ or items that you fall in love with and can’t live without.  

Here is an edit of pieces, a lot of which I own personally that I would class as true wardrobe staples, I’ve found that when you own one of each of these then you have the building blocks to create multiple looks and that you always have something to wear...

The Flip Flop

The Denim Shirt

The Wide Leg Denim

A Great Dress

The Retro Trainers

The Black Body/Swimsuit

The Knitted Co Ord
