For a woman it’s not fair to ignore the importance of your closet. There are some pieces you ought to have found because, honestly, they make the style part of life easier. See what from our list you already have and what you don’t:
1. A Black Blazer
“A tailored blazer is classic, feminine and looks great on all body types. Pair it with anything: jeans, little dresses, trousers, skirts. Make sure to find one that fits you well and accentuates your waist—you don’t want it to look like it’s swallowing you!”
2. A Plain White Tee
Is there anything more versatile? Whether you layer this perfect T-shirt under a sweater or over a tank top, tuck it into a skirt or let it hang free with a pair of denim cutoffs, one thing is for sure: Nothing is more essential to your closet than this trusty staple.
3. Ballet Flats
There’s a reason everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Alexa Chung loves a good pair of ballet flats: They’re equal parts chic and comfortable! Use them to dress up your jeans and button-down combination, then seamlessly transition that same pair to a cocktail dress for night. Your outfits (and feet!) will thank you.
4. Classic Black Pants
Every gal needs one pair of black pants that will always make her feel good—the cut (high-waist or low rise, cropped or wide-leg) is up to you. Wear them with a silk blouse and pumps for work or a T-shirt on a chill Saturday.
5. A Pair of Classic Pumps
Flats may have had a major revival this year, but there’s no escaping that heels are still a strong must-have. One pair in a neutral hue like black or gray will take you from the boardroom to the bar with ease.
6. A Pair of Good Jeans
Is there any clothing that we love more than a perfect jean? Yup, It is a flattering piece to wear on any occasion. The color doesn’t matter but my favs are dark blue, light blue wash and black. Pair them with platforms or wedges to get extra height while keeping the look casual and comfortable.
7. A Work Bag
“A work bag is definitely a good place to step it up and make a good investment”
Your bag doesn’t necessarily have to cost as much as your rent, but at the same time a high quality bag is very important. Invest not only your money, but also a little research into brands and the bags they carry to conclude what works best for you in the long run. A classic, chic styles that can adapt to any work setting.
8. An Elegant Scarf
A Scarf is not only for the winter but for any season. It instantly makes you look classy and stylish. Even if you’re wearing a basic T-shirt and jeans, use accessories like a printed scarf as the crown piece to complete your look.
9. A Black Leather Jacket
A black leather jacket, not brown or any other color, but black, is an essential layering piece that makes anything and everything look instantly cooler. It adds a rocker edge even to the girliest prints, takes summer dresses into fall, and looks absolutely awesome with jeans or cutoffs and a tee.
10. An Over sized Dial Watch
A watch is as much an accessory as it is a timepiece. A gold watch is a great way to dress an outfit up-try leaving it loose so it looks like a bracelet.
11. A Little Black Dress
Every woman knows she should have a little black dress, but it’s important to invest in one that’s special. Look for a dress with a detail-an interesting sleeve, an embellished belt-that makes it unique. And remember that finding the right fit is important!
