Must-have Items for timeless wardrobe
Every fashion-forward girl must know the basic building blocks of a well-rounded closet.
There are definitely classic pieces that you shouldn’t be afraid to splurge on. These pieces, if well taken care of, can last for years or even decades. They will carry you through work weeks at a big girl job, dinners, networking soirees, and so much more.
Here, we list some of these closet essentials
Little black dress
Having a trusted LBD in your closet is a crucial item in your wardrobe. Look for classic knee-length sleeveless sheath styles. Make sure it’s not too short and doesn’t show cleavage for the ultimate versatile piece.
Classic white shirt
If you will be working, going to interviews, or even just looking polished for a nice dinner any time soon, a classic white dress shirt should be your new best friend forever.
Pair with a pencil skirt, with a blazer, khaki trousers, or black pants. Finish with a statement necklace and simple pumps or ballet flats. The combinations are endless.
The fantastic thing about ballet flats is that, they’re a totally classic staple item that you don’t need to spend a bunch of money on. Rather than spending so much on one fancy leather pair, pick up several different colours and styles.
Although skinny, boyfriend and trouser-style jeans are more modern, it’s still important to have a classic pair of dark-wash, wide-leg jeans in your closet. These jeans have come back into style and are great for nice dinners, casual days at work, or even just pairing with a t-shirt.
A perfect black blazer
Blazers are awesome pieces because there are so many varieties to choose from. Be sure to have that perfect-fitting classic one in your closet. Make sure the sleeves hit right at your wrists, and the shoulders have enough room to layer underneath. The front should be fitted, but not pull out around your chest.
Scarves are one of those things that most people don’t specifically set out to buy, but always end up with anyway. There are many intentionally stylish things you can do to with it.
Try tying a scarf around a handle on your purse, around your waist as a belt, or artfully knotted as a halter. Go for a loose wrap-around look, or twist before knotting for an easy yet fancy look.
No girl in the world should go without a pair of wearable, classic, and simple black heels in her closet. From weddings to company functions, first dates to first jobs, black heels do an amazing job complementing dressy shorts, tank top blouse with a pencil skirt, and can be paired with a blazer for the meeting, and take it off for the date.
Simple V-neck shirts
V-necks are fantastic for layering under jackets, lounging around the rooms in, or using as an inner piece. There’s no outfit easier or breezier than a V-neck paired with jeans or shorts, canvas shoes, sunglasses, and a headband.
Black dress pants are an absolute must-have for emergencies. Look for styles that fit loosely throughout the thigh, and flare out oh-so slightly around the calves.
Striking is your look when you pair it with a white dress shirt tucked in.
