We round up the wardrobe essentials you need to make any outfit look good

When it comes to everyday dressing, particularly at this time of year, a collection of elevated basics is essential for making every outfit look effortless. Now, as we all examine our shopping habits in a bid to buy things that will last more than one season, there’s never been a better time to focus on wardrobe foundations — layering pieces that will stand you in good sartorial stead.

No matter what your individual style is, a pair of classic denim jeans, some simple knitwear or a utilitarian jacket will take the hassle out of everyday dressing and give your looks a slick edge. Want to build a truly timeless wardrobe? These are the essential pieces you need.
