Kirstie Clements’ wardrobe essentials


Kirstie Clements is the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Australia who has more than 25 years experience in luxury publishing.

Clements spent more than two decades attending international fashion shows, travelling the world, and interviewing top designers, but she also has a realistic view on the type of advice women are looking for when it comes to style.

Today we asked Kirstie what are wardrobe essentials to base our top looks around. She says we don’t need much, from classic pieces that never go out of style to the best accessories you can afford, Kirstie has you covered:

  1. An impeccable pair of black pants to put with heels for night or sandals for day
  2. Sandals which can be much sexier than high heels
  3. Jewellery – a great bangle or hoop earrings –  something to just brighten up your outfit with a pop of colour
  4. A jacket, or a trench coat, for finishing touches
  5. A skirt that suits your shape
