Fashion blogger Alexis Foreman, founder of Style Memos, reveals the pieces you
need to build the perfect spring wardrobe

Style basics

“Every woman needs certain essentials in her wardrobe, such as a white shirt, Breton top, classic blue jeans and trusty trench coat. I've picked my favourites for the new season, creating a capsule wardrobe of pieces you can rely on throughout spring and beyond.

“My first outfit is that ever-faithful combo of jeans and Breton top. These jeans are so good! High-waisted, straight-legged and lovely mid-blue wash – just how I like them. Thanks to the high waist I feel comfortable enough to tuck in the Breton, but it would also look great left untucked as the side split is such a nice detail.”

“I'm a firm believer in the capsule wardrobe. It's a stress-relieving way of dressing, especially when you're strapped for time. A foundation of pieces that are tonally complementary means that you can create a number of outfits from just a few key items.”

Easy elegance

“The second outfit I've pulled together is a collarless white shirt styled over an A-line midi skirt, paired with these great buckled sandals and a tote bag.

“I love the shape of this outfit combination but it may not work for everyone. If you prefer more definition to looser shapes, the shirt works just as well tucked in and shows off the great paper-bag waist on the skirt, which I love.”
