Fit Check! Niamh Webb O’Rourke Shares Her 5 Wardrobe Staples

*Aggressively takes notes*

Influencer and fashionista Niamh Webb O’Rourke shares her top five wardrobe stables.

For me, it is so important to have a few wardrobe staples as I tend to build my daily looks around them. I personally think though that wardrobe staples vary from person to person due to their style, lifestyle, what they like etc so it would be wrong of me to say that my top 5 are what everyone should own but I have put together some wardrobe staples I could not live without and are key to my daily looks.

Black Boots:
My love for Black Boots – I don’t even know where to start. They are the foundation to any look, the same as if you were building a house. From dresses to suits and everything in between, a good solid pair of black boots will see you through years of your life. My go too pair are the “Jadon Platform Max” from Dr Martens that I literally wear religiously.

A Denim Shirt:
Trust me when I say a good denim shirt is something we ALL NEED TO OWN. From Summer to Winter, a simple denim shirt will see you through the good, the bad & the ugly. The perfect piece for layering or simply throwing out to potter around daily, a denim shirt is a must have. I personally love my oversized one and I pull it out season after season – you can just never go wrong with one.

A “Go Too” Handbag:
Finally, your “go too” Handbag is a must for every wardrobe. Whether it is an investment piece or simply just one you love – it is so important to have a good-sized bag in your wardrobe that you know will go with anything you throw on. A few years back I invested in my “Sac Noé Louis Vuitton” and it was the best money I ever spent. Time and time again I will reach for it to finish off any look and it never fails. It is something I will hopefully pass down to my future kids someday to become a wardrobe staple for them also.

An Oversized Scarf:
I never really believed an oversized scarf could be so valuable to my wardrobe until the last few months or so. With the days getting colder, I was looking for something to lift up my layered looks and instantly add a “wow” factor to them. My Acne Studios Scarf really has become my saving grace for adding a bit of glam to any look – it is a must-have piece.

A Statement Blazer:
For me, no look is ever complete without a Statement Blazer. It could be bright, plain or loud, but a Blazer is key to finishing off any look. Whether you are simply wearing a tracksuit and want to smarten it up, throw on a blazer. Going out for drinks with the girls, you can finish off the look with your blazer – it is such a versatile piece to own. Find a shape you like and you will always have a piece of clothing that you will feel comfortable in.


So there you have it, my must-have wardrobe staples that never let me down. Even on the days I don’t feel too good, I know I can always create a look that will help me feel confident out of my wardrobe staples and it really is all about making you feel better – isn’t it?
