While we’re all about fashion trends for the season, we can’t deny turning to a few closet staples every now and then.
We’ve narrowed the list down to seven fashion essentials every woman’s closet should have:
- Tailored blazer
This is a must-have as it flatters every body shape and goes with just about anything… You can pair it with trousers or a skirt for a smart, corporate look, dress up jeans with heels and your blazer, or even pair it with jeans and sneakers for a casual-chic look. Be sure that it fits well and doesn’t drown you – don’t be afraid to visit the tailor!
- Go-to jeans
Whether they’re bootleg, flared or skinny, you’ll never be sorry you invested in a great pair of jeans. You can wear them ultra-casually or dress them up, but be sure to pay attention to the colour and wash when selecting yours – you want to go classic for your investment pair.
- The LBD
No list of fashion essentials would be complete without the little black dress. Invest in one that flatters your shape, but also makes you feel oh-so sexy and incredibly confident. A great LBD will be your fallback for any occasion, and because it’s timeless, you rock it with confidence and can accessorise it differently, you’ll be able to wear it again, and again, and again.
- A denim shirt
You’ll rely on this item more than you’d think! It will come in handy in every season, can look chic tucked into your jeans with a pair of heels, or super cool worn open over a shirt with trendy shorts. It’s without a doubt a must-have piece, and one that you should always throw into your suitcase.
- Killer heels
No – we don’t mean a vertigo-inducing high pair of stilettos, rather any pair that gives you that “I’ve got this” attitude. You can’t go wrong with black stilettos or nude wedges, but if it’s a racy red pair that elevates your confidence, we advise you keep them in your car to throw on at any time.
- Statement necklace
Take your look up a notch – regardless of whether it’s casual or smart – with a beautiful neck piece. You can instantly liven up your jean-and-tee combo, or give your LBD that added wow-factor with one fabulous piece of jewellery.
- A plain white tee
This is arguably one of the most useful fashion essentials, and is so handy that when you find a good one, you should probably buy two (or even three!). It goes with absolutely everything in your closet, and always looks uber chic – unless it has stains on it, in which case you can recycle it as a gym or pyjama top!
