Items In My Wardrobe That Went From Trend To Staple
One of my goals for 2021 is to stop buying trends and start investing in staples. However, sometimes a trend becomes a staple which you can't always predict, here are some of my favourites that will definitely be sticking around:
Pre-Covid, joggers for me were always something I wore in the house only or maybe just to run errands or do the groceries. Fast forward 12 months and having to work from home pretty much full time, I decided I wanted something a little smarter but still just as comfy and so my fiance bought me these smart joggers from Topshop which I think are the perfect mix of smart casual.
These definitely started as just a trend almost 10 years ago when I attended a lot of festivals. I would never have worn wellies anywhere else but figured I would get my money's worth seeing as I was attending around 5 festivals a year. Now, however, with my festival days behind me (okay, maybe the odd one once a year) I still wear my Hunters on dog walks in the country and snow days in the city.
These were the sunglasses that started my addiction. My first pair was a black pair of wayfarers that I still have and wear today. I then went onto the rounds of which I bought 2 pairs. I love Raybans because I think they just look super effortless and classic but they're also pretty affordable. The quality is great and they last ages but never seem to go out of style.
I suppose this is a trend that has been around a while but I never expected it would be. I bought a few over the years but only in the last couple of years have I been reaching for them more and more. Maybe because my style has changed in the last 2 years or maybe because we are spending more time at home and wanting to be comfortable but I think these cardigans will be in my wardrobe for a long time to come.
Hands down my favourite style of footwear. I've lost count of the amount of ankle boots I've bought over the years, I just find them so versatile. They can be dressed up, dressed down, worn to the office, bar, on walks; they literally go with everything and so I think this would be a firm staple in my wardrobe. I have many different types from chunky heels, platforms, military and sock boots. Ankle boots are definitely not going anyway in my wardrobe!
What items do you have that started as a trend but are now a firm staple?
