Wardrobe essentials for him and her


Top five for her

Double-breasted coat

wardrobe - her doubleWhether it’s wool-blend for winter or a lighter material to carry you through spring and fall, a double-breasted coat is a must-have! Take it up a notch and buy it in a bold colour!

Dark denim

wardrobe - her denimThe right dark denim pants are not only flattering, but will most definitely class up any outfit. If you’re still wearing acid-wash denim with giant tears, it’s time you stopped shopping at Parasuco.

Statement jewellery

wardrobe - her jewelleryJewellery can say a lot about who you are and what you’re all about. Statement jewellery can be subtle but colourful, or bold and brilliant. Check out Stella & Dot jewellery at stelladot.com. They carry chunky bracelets, beautiful necklaces, and everything pretty in between!

Day bag

wardrobe - her day bagMost girls have purses and mistaken them for “bags”. A day bag is tad larger and fits all necessary items for your day out. Go for a neutral colour or classic black and you’ll be on your way in style!


wardrobe - her flatsWhether you’re dating someone shorter or you just can’t bear a full day in heels, your flats will be your saviours at school, work, or the club.

Starter suit

Camel khaki

Perry Ellis - Runway - Spring 2011 MBFWWhether it’s a luncheon, a study session at the library, or a Saturday stroll downtown, the camel khaki can work overtime and in almost any scenario. You can’t get any better than the vintage khaki from the Gap.

Crisp white shirt

Messenger bag

wardrobe - his bagThe messenger bag offers a casual and modern alternative to your backpack and for days when you’ve got only a few things to carry it makes perfect sense. The Lacoste Sport messenger bag is perfect to carry your 15” Macbook or any other paperwork you may need—and a little bit more.


wardrobe - his loafersNot too dressy and not too casual, loafers are a perfect way to dress up jeans and dress down pants. They come in an array of colours and can be worn anywhere. Buy them in brown and they’ll go with everything you own.
