Essentials with a twist - discover CEO Birgit’s top 10

We love essentials! Because they create the best foundation for building a personal wardrobe and are above all timeless. But even within the ‘essentials’ category, there’s a difference between the most timeless essential styles and the trendier designs; essentials with a twist, you could say. CEO Birgit’s put together a list of her 10 favorite essentials with a twist this season - for adding a subtle trendy feel to your wardrobe without compromising its timeless character.

1. Bridget Cotton Shirt - ba&sh

I love multifunctional pieces that make your wardrobe more versatile. A casual blouse like this is also perfect to wear as a ‘jacket’. Personally, I would go for a larger size to create a cool, slightly oversized fit.

2. Frivo Satin Midi Skirt - Resort Finest
Talking about versatility: this slender skirt is perfect to wear all seasons. Create a stylish co-ord set with the matching top, team with a classic white shirt and blazer to the office and when it’s cold outside, wear with an oversized sweater.
3. Erin Tunic Top - Filippa K
A sweatshirt doesn’t get more stylish than this. The off-white hue, the slim tunic silhouette - a sweater that’s perfect for an evening in as well as out when you team it with a leather skirt and pumps.
4. Erin Slim Pants - Filippa K
I couldn’t leave out these matching pants. Co-ord is a huge trend this season and this set adds timelessness to the mix. But worn solo, these pants go with everything else in your closet. Who doesn’t love to feel super comfortable all day without compromising style.
5. Mirk Oversized Boucle Cardi-coat - IRO
So in love with this multi-functional design from IRO. This jacket/blazer/cardigan/shirt is super versatile to wear and should be worn oversized, which ups the level of comfort.
6. Knitted Jumpsuit with Cashmere - Repeat
I love jumpsuits and cashmere so this piece was a must for my top 10. Go for super cozy with a large cardigan and sneakers, for chic with a great blazer and heels or team with ankle boots and a leather jacket for a city trip.
7. Le Levande Viscose Pants - Plein Publique
The leopard print has really proven itself over the years, as a print that keeps coming back and offers plenty of styling options. Feel comfortable all day with an oversized sweater and sneakers or team with a silk top and pumps to go to diner in style.
8. Mesh Turtleneck Long Sleeve - LaSalle
This item is so light and breezy to wear - it’s a perfect layering piece. Wear underneath a sleeveless dress, as a cool feature underneath a classic shirt but also for an evening out with a camisole or beautiful bralette underneath.
9. Bobi Shoulder/Cross-body bag - Jerome Dreyfuss
I’ll keep it short: I simply must have this! This bag isn’t only super stylish with a rock-chic edge to it but the size and the zipper features to enlarge the size make this design practical as well. A design to wear for both daytime and evenings.
10. Chalie Long Hooded Cardigan with Cashmere - ba&sh
For those in-between days when it’s not cold enough to wear a coat, this lovely cardigan is the item to wear. Again, an item with versatility in mind - because the more versatile the piece, the more you’ll wear it. And that’s exactly what we want when we create a personal and timeless wardrobe.
