Current Casual Wardrobe Staples

Comfortable and cool at the same time.23rd Nov 2015 - Style

I was inspired by this post to show you some of my current wardrobe staples, but I wanted to stick to my casual items. I always keep things pretty casual, I love sneakers and sweaters and jeans but I always try to spice them up with accessories.


I’m almost always wearing a t-shirt when I’m just hanging around and my latest obsession is this Whistles Bien Tee. They’re super comfortable and easy to throw on so that’s a definite must have for me. If I want to have something slightly dressier, but still low-maintenance I love a crisp white shirt. I always roll up the sleeves and usually I tuck the front into the front of my jeans. As for sweaters, you can’t go wrong with Bella Freud and this Je T’aime Jane one is beautiful! I also love wearing long cardigans like this blue Acne one over top of t-shirts or tank tops. It’s nice to wear a soft pop of colour when the weather is so grim.



I am almost always in jeans and thankfully I finally found a pair of boyfriend jeans from Citizens of Humanity that are tight in all the right places. I love to pair my jeans with some cool sneakers like these Silver ones from Common Projects, or a pair of the classic Adidas in a unique colour. Want an alternative for jeans? These cotton overalls are the bomb! I love that they’re in a comfortable thin material rather than denim because it’s a bit unexpected.


I’ve been pulling a Goldmember lately because I can’t get enough of the stuff.Even my  Commes Des Garçons wallet has a gold accent! I’ve been wearing loads of gold rings, so it’s only natural that I should also be wearing some gold ice on my wrist. This Larsson + Jennings Liten watch is absolutely perfect and whenever I wear it I find myself staring at it and petting it. They come in a few sizes, but mine is the smallest one because I wanted to do some layering. My chunky gold Moxham bracelet looks badass with my watch and although it’s not my usual style I love wearing it. Of course, I had to include my current favourite Miu Miu sunglasses which are always on my face if I’m outside. They’re a really unique shape and I think the tortoise shell warms up my complexion a bit.

Another accessory I couldn’t live without is a pair of headphones. Whenever I take the tube or do some travelling I always bring a pair of over-ear headphones with me, so when these FRENDS Taylor Gold Smoke Resin headphones arrived I was beyond thrilled. They’re so comfortable on the ears, even for long periods and they have so many options to personalise your pair.

Bad hair day? Put a hat on!

    I love Miu Miu sunglasses! I have a couple pairs that I tend to gravitate towards… alot. With one in particular that I absolutely love (this one here) They know how to make unique design somehow so versatile you can wear it with almost anything.

  • I love your selection – nice and clean!

  • Hollie Stollery

    Hey Estee! I’m currently in Canada doing a ski season – missing London and its bloggers an awful lot! Do you have any recommendations for Canadian bloggers with a similar style to yourself? Thanks! Hollie x
