How can you describe a modern women’s wardrobe? Is it full of crisp office wear or slouchy self-employment separates? Does she wear floral in the spring or stick to unisex silhouettes? The options are as diverse as women themselves, making it almost impossible to identify a single set of staples that are foundational to everyone. And yet! Some things never change. A pair of razor-sharp black heels look just as fiercely stylish as they did in the 1980s, and my time travelling sources tell me black heels will be wildly en-vogue in the 2080s too. If we try to pick out the keystones of a modern woman’s wardrobe, the picture that emerges is a little bit serious and a little bit flashy, and a little bit devil-may-care-cool. So if any of you modern women need help shopping for basics, well I’ve done the legwork for you.
