The 10 "Boring" Staples You'll Need in 2019

As December comes to a close, we have a chance to reflect on the year that's passed (the good, the bad and the ugly) and look ahead at what's to come for 2019. It's been a big year for fashion: Whether it's the rise of the Instagram brand or the high-street conquering of the viral buy, it's certainly been a busy 12 months.

If there's one thing that 2018 has shown us, it's the power of a good staple. So forget party dresses and forgo festive knits; we're getting excited about the wardrobe staples set to spike in 2019. No, they might not be the most exciting things to spend your salary on, but come January, if you're armed with a sturdy base from which to build on, you'll be feeling pretty smug.

While statement pieces such as prairie dresses and '80s-inspired blouses lie in wait for us in S/S 19, we also can also look forward to a host of stylish staples including chunky cardigans, racer vests and denim jackets (aka the items that'll act as the glue in your wardrobe). This is one shopping decision you won't regret. Scroll down to see our lineup of the "boring" staples you should invest in for 2019.
