Your next-gen wardrobe essentials by Camille Charrière

You already know the drill about how every wardrobe needs a white tee, jeans and so on. Now let us bring you the next gen of essentials by Camille Charrière, journalist, brand consultant and Master of Great Basics. A Parisienne in London, she’s got that tousled, simple-chic thing French girls do so well and everyone wants in on. “I like basics with a twist,” she says. “I always make sure there’s an element that’s going to stand out so that it’s not too simple – the shape of the sleeves, the colour, the length, the collar, the stitching. Beautiful basics are hard to find, so people will notice them.” Thankfully, she’s done the graft for you – here’s her edit of staples you need now.

A grown-up jumpsuit

“It’s all-in-one so you don’t have to think about anything. You can change the shoes and accessories, and look different every time. What I do is wear a cool knit underneath – a nice turtleneck or stripey sweater. The jumpsuit has to be fitted and have a bit of décolleté – something’s that going to add interest”

Mix/Osman tailored jumpsuit £199

A set of gold hoops

“My friend read this book called Why Men Marry B*****s and it told her you had to wear hooped earrings, so she bought me a pair. I’m still not married…I tend to dress boyishly and I think that nice jewellery adds a cool feminine touch. If you make an effort with the little details, it doesn’t matter so much what you’ve put together”

Next hoop earrings £7

A dress-up-or-down sparkly something

“A sequinned dress or skirt is so easy and looks good at a party because you can dress it down with a T-shirt or knit and Converses, and still look special, but not overdone”

Mix/AV Robertson beaded sweatshirt £99, Mix/Teatum Jones tailored crop trouser £125, Mix/Mimi Berry Sibell bag £235

Shop Mix/Osman Tailored Faux Fur Front Coat Shop Mix/A V Robertson 3D Embellished Mesh Back T-Shirt

“I like basics with a twist. I always make sure there’s an element that’s going to stand out so that it’s not too simple”

An urban straw basket (worn with a fur coat)

“It has to be worn in the city. It’s great to wear a basket to the beach, but the idea is to take it out of its natural habitat. I’d wear it in winter with a faux-fur coat for a real Jane Birkin vibe, or with cool jeans and a blazer”

Mix/Osman faux-fur coat £275, Mix/J.Won colourblock hooded knit £110, Mix/Lab leather jean £275

A goes-with-everything leather skirt

“I’d wear it with anything from a white T-shirt, to an open blouse, to a sweatshirt if I’m going dancing. I’d wear it with a black turtleneck if I want to look chicer”

Mix/AV Robertson beaded T-shirt £65, Mix/Lab wrap leather skirt £199, Mix/AV Robertson fur bead slider £99

Who/ Journalist, brand consultant, founder of super-blog Camille Over The Rainbow, co-host of Fashion: No Filter podcast, Instagram tastemaker

Did you know/ She trained as a lawyer before deciding fashion was her calling

Did you also know/ She may have a French name, but her accent is decidedly English, as she was born here – her Dad is French and her mum is British

Favourite Label/Mix pieces/ “The grey Mix/J.Won turtleneck. It’s very soft and I know I can throw on over everything. And the grey Mix/Rejina Pyo coat. It’s comfortable, you’re not trying too hard, but there’s enough detail to keep it interesting”

Style heroine/ “I’d like to raid Jane Birkin’s wardrobe because she’ll have a bunch of things you’d not be able to get nowadays like cool shapes of jeans, old T-shirts, baskets and gifts from amazing designers that she’s worked with in the past. I imagine her closet would be a real dream”
