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.
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 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.
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!
