Fashion is ever-changing, and keeping up with the latest trends may be quite stressful for some women. That is why we have come up with the ten closet staples that every woman should have in her closet, which are all versatile and timeless.
White button-down. This is a classic wardrobe essential that you must own since it is extremely versatile, and you can easily dress it up or down according to the occasion. Stay low-key but classy in a flowy button-down, jeans, and flats, or bring out your feminine side by pairing it with a fun, printed skirt. Or you can wear it over a tank top and denim cut-offs for a more casual look.
Ballet flats. Ballet flats are the perfect choice for comfort without sacrificing style, and it can go with almost any outfit – whether it’s a flowy dress, pants and blouse combo, or casual chic. Black flats are a traditional option, while nude flats make your feet look slimmer, and red flats add a pop of color to your outfit.
An elegant timepiece. A stylish watch can both be a timepiece and an accessory, especially those in gold or silver with chain straps. And sometimes, an elegant timepiece is all you need to complete your look! If you want a less dressy version, a watch with brown leather straps looks just as sophisticated as well.
Black pants. Another versatile piece of clothing, a pair of perfect-fitting black pants will complement your figure while effortlessly matching with any type of blouse you have in your closet. Tip: wear black pants or leggings for dresses that are too short to wear alone. Problem solved!
Shift dress. Nothing beats the timeless shift dress that you can wear to any event on your to-do list whether it is something formal like a garden wedding, or simply a lunch date with your friends. You can just add a statement accessory or swipe on a red lipstick to change your look from simple to dressy. Plus, wearing a shift dress means that you don’t have to plan clothes for your top and bottom – simply slip on your dress and you’re good to go!
Pumps. With the right style and color, a pair of classic pumps can go a long way in your closet. Invest in pumps that will look good in a pair of corporate attire just as it does with a sexy dress for your night out with your girlfriends.
Little black dress. Ah, the classic LBD. It’s an absolute staple in every woman’s closet: when in doubt, you can never go wrong with the little black dress. You can dress it up for a glamorous party by accessorizing, or you can wear it on its own chic glory – the choice is yours. Choose a cut that accentuates your body’s features and cinches your waist.
Trench coat. A good pair of trench coat will not only keep you warm from the chilly weather, but also give your look a downtown-chic vibe. It can also be your go-to cover up when wearing dresses and long gowns. Choose colors that will pair up with anything in your closet, such as black or dark grey, or earthy tones like tan, olive green, and brown.
Striped tee. If you want a top that diverts from the usual boring plain shirts without looking too much, then it’s time for you to buy striped tees. You can pair it with a pencil skirt and pumps, and it looks good underneath a blazer plus jeans. Don’t just buy any striped tee, though – big vertical stripes will make you look bigger.
Tailored blazer. The black blazer is a girl’s best friend, since it lends a feminine and classy aura to any outfit. Plus it looks good with basically anything in your closet: skirts, jeans, shorts, dresses, and trousers. Make sure that your blazer is tailored to fit you perfectly, since a boxy blazer can overwhelm your frame and make you look bigger.
