There’s a lot to be said for timeless fashion choices, so on days when you find yourself standing in front of your closet thinking, “I have nothing to wear!” Your classic pieces can keep you from walking off the edge when you think there’s nothing left in your closet to work with.
There’s a reason why this item has been en Vogue since the 1800’s, it’s functional, flattering, and classic in every form. It flatters virtually every body type due to its waist defining properties – never invest in one without a belt – and always aids in presenting a professional image. It’s an easy go-to choice when you’re wearing either pants or a dress, and looks best with classic detailing and medium lapels.
Mega-high stilettos are not appropriate for every occasion, but the classic black pump is versatile and helps to take your look from office to after work drinks with ease. They’re dependable, sophisticated, and professional with an added bonus: they go with just about any outfit from skinny jeans to a boldly patterned dress.
It accentuates your style because colour trends come and go, but browns, blacks, and metallics are forever choices. While the shade may be neutral, it doesn’t have to be boring – try an understated print in a neutral tone, those are fabulous!
Aside from the fit, it’s all about the neckline so opt for one that compliments your fit – a V-neck flatters almost everyone but they come in a variety of cuts. It pairs well with jeans, skirts, and shorts, making it known as “understated style.”
Little Black Dress
This is the number one most essential item in your closet. You’ve heard it time and time again, but there’s a reason for it – your mother isn’t just finding another excuse to nag you. The LBD can be dressed up or down, being worn as a sensible work dress or with statement accessories for a night on the town. It’s the easiest, most flattering go-to solution when you’re unsure of what to wear.
So when you’re faced with filling your wardrobe with the latest trends and how costly, time-consuming, and daunting task it can be, remember you will get there eventually.
