Trends may come and go, so it makes sense to build your wardrobe with classics items that will transcend ages, decades and seasons.
Although it sounds like a daunting task, it can be really simple once you know what to look for and where to shop! Whether you're building a wardrobe from scratch, or you're looking to revamp your existing collection of basics, read on for our edit of the Wardrobe Essentials - five must-haves every girl needs in her closet that suits all styles and budgets.
1. The classic oxford shirt
Perhaps the most defining item of any wardrobe is the timeless button-down shirt. Dress it up with a pencil skirt and heels or take the more casual route by loosely tucking into a pair of your favourite skinny jeans. The only colours you'll ever need are white and a powder or chambray blue to make any outfit instantly chic and effortless.
2. The skinny fit denim jeans
Black and white denim are much-loved favourites of Frenchwomen (if Emmanuelle Alt is anyone to go by), so who are we to disagree?
3. The breton stripes
Just about the easiest things in the world to wear, we're all about stripes all day, every day here at Hello Parry HQ. To elevate this wardrobe essential, pair your striped top with a bold, red lip. So French, so chic, and oh so sophisticated.

4. The statement skirt
Every girl needs a go-to skirt. The great thing about a statement skirt is that you can wear it all year round - in autumn dressed down with a sweater, or in spring with a tailored button-down shirt or classic tank top (like our Jolene cami) for more dressy occasions.

5. The tailored shorts
Summer casual means investing in a great pair of shorts that will take you from Sunday afternoon drinks to Sunday cocktails with ease. Opt for a pair in a classic cut and print that grazes the mid-thigh to just above the knee, and wear with your favourite leather sandals.
As good looking with a tailored button-down shirt as it is with a tank top, it can be paired with a jacket for a more professional look.
