A white t-shirt and a pair of jeans always come to mind when it comes to classic pieces of clothing we all can’t live without. Queen of class, Coco Chanel, once said “fashion changes but style endures,” and that much is true! Here’s a list of wardrobe necessities to help you find that style that will never run out!

A luxury cable knit jumper makes walking to university on a chilly winter morning so much better. The combination I love most is layering it above a blue or denim shirt underneath. Super neat!
