Every Girls Wardrobe Must Haves

Hi, this is my first blog post and I’m excited as ever! Why? Because here we will be sharing all anything you need to know about fashion and how to look super anytime, anywhere. So today I will start by sharing with you must-have items for every woman. Yes, no woman worth her salt should miss these important items in their wardrobe to save them for unplanned occasions. So here goes the list.trench coat

Little black dress (LBD)

This is a timeless piece of clothing that every woman should have in their wardrobe. To ensure that it stays fashionable even ten years from now, avoid buying one that is too short or shows a lot of cleavage. A safe purchase would be one that is up to knee length and does not have any sleeves. I have one LBD and I must say it has saved me on so many occasions when I was not sure what to wear.

Ballet flats

Ballet flats are just so comfortable to walk around. They are great for a wearing when going shopping or even in the office. I must say I have several of this in my wardrobe and I absolutely love them. One thing I have noticed is that they barely last for more than two years. Thus, instead of spending money buying designer ballet flats, I would advise you to buy several inexpensive pairs that can be worn for different occasions.

A classic black blazer

A blazer will fit into any woman’s wardrobe. There are so many ways you can wear this piece of cloth. To start, I wear my blazer in the office with a pencil skirt, I wear it over a tee and a dress for coffee dates with my girls and even to evening functions over a cocktail dress. This is a great wardrobe staple. Buy one that is well tailored with a classic look and avoid studs or flashy detailed ones as this will not easily fit into many occasions.

A trench coat

The trench coat brings sophistication on any outfit. It’s the ideal spring/fall transition outfit I must say is just right. When buying one, ensure it’s in a cool color that will match most of your cloths. You don’t want to buy a piece that will be worn with just a few wardrobe items.

Classic wash boot-cut jeans

Skinny jeans are now what every woman is wearing, but a pair of classic boot cut jeans is a timeless piece that you must have in your closet. You can wear it in the office or for a coffee date with friends. I personally love boot cut jeans and I think I have more of them than the skinny jeans. Again, I have thick legs so I find boot cut jeans flatter my shape.

A tee- shirt

A white tee-shirt is one of my closet staples. Just like the blazer, this can be worn in so many ways. You can wear it for a casual day or dress it up for a night out.

Black pumps

Now, if you are reading this and you don’t have a pair of simple, elegant black high heels, then you should just leave it and go buy yourself just one pair of this. Black pumps are stylish and at the same time functional. You can walk into a party with them and move to an interview wearing the same shoe looking fabulous. Still, you can wear them to a date and still look elegant.
So there you have it girls! Anything I left out? Let me know in the comments. Thanks!

How To Get The Right Size Of Clothes When Shopping Online

Last week I got a question from someone asking how to get the perfect size of clothes when shopping online. Instead of answering them the question directly to their email, I decided to answer it right here on my blog since I get it often from my readers. This way I will help anyone out there who would love to do some online shopping.

Online shopping is convenient and lots of people use this method to get what they want although at times it can be risky. One thing that most people struggle with shopping for clothes online is how to ensure they get the right size. Often, people end up returning items they have bought because they are either too small or too big. I have also had to deal with that at some point. But I learned my lessons right and nowadays, I rarely have to return anything bought online. Here is how to get the right size of clothes when shopping online. These methods have worked for me and I’m sure they will work alright for you.

Take your measurements first

Saying you are simply size 8,10 or 14 is not just enough. One thing you need to know is that a brands size 6 may be another’s size 8 or 10. The best thing is to take your own measurements and not a general dress size. Take your waist, bust and hips sizes and then use those numbers as you shop online.

Find out sizing information

When shopping online, you need to know all you can about sizing information. Buy your clothes online from a store that has sizing information on their website. This actually has helped me a lot as I’m aware of the different sizes and their exact measurements. Ensure you go to this section in the store and find out all you can about their sizing policy before you can buy any items. With this information, you will be able to make informed decisions when you begin shopping.

What is the return policy?

I never buy anything online without first establishing their return policy. I always ensure I know if I can return an item if it’s too small or too big. This prevents me from losing money and I’m usually confident that I can exchange that item should it not fit properly. Also check whether you can order the same item in two different sizes and return the one that does not fit properly. Never shop in an online store that does not have a return policy.

Talk to someone

If you are not sure on how to go about doing your online shopping at a particular store, talk to someone. Most of the online stores have live chat and you can always talk to a customer representative. Try and find out about any other details you are unsure of. Some customer care representatives will even assist you decide on the right size depending on the measurements you give them. Be sure you also find out the payment methods that they accept.
There are so many deals online and you can save lots of money by shopping online, but you should be careful not to get into any pitfalls. Knowing how to buy the ideal size will save you the trouble if having to return items. Look great within your budget by shopping online!
