Get yourself a selection of scarves from primark and wear with a plain top, jeans or leggings. Pay extra attention to hair and makeup and perhaps a selection of nail varnishes. I'm trying to move away from too much black and mainly wear, navy, grey,khaki, white, and let the scarves add colour.
I love love black,but good idea about scarves.I was looking for some advice about how many tops/trousers should I get,and which colours to make easier to put together outfits that look decent/casual but put together....not sure I'm making much sense lol!
IMO/experience, navy and white always look chic and put together (to be honest, I think all-over-black rarely does, unless it's expensive black!).
Only you can judge how many you'll need, and of what exactly. If it were me starting again and putting together a capsule wardrobe for £70' I'd concentrate on finding a great pair of really flattering jeans, a couple of stretchy t-shirt style tops that can be dressed up with jewellery/scarves, a cream/beige cardigan (like a twinset style one - I have one and it's incredible how useful it is), some leggings and a tunic-style dress that can also be dressed up or down. I'd need much more than that, to be honest, but if your budget is £70 then that's what I'd focus on. I'd look in M&S, Dotty Perkins and Debenhams. Good luck!
