each season comes a long list of trends, fashion’s a la carte menu of
what’s hot and what’s not for the coming 3 months. However a killer
wardrobe is not built on disposable clothing trending in and out of
fashion. A solid base of classic pieces in your wardrobe arsenal will
give you the greatest bang for your buck and help you to put together
stellar looks in a cinch.
Fashion’s golden 5 are the most
valuable items you’ll have in your wardrobe year after year. They are
the anchor pieces you’ll want to invest the most in because they will
undoubtedly be worn again and again. Here are the pieces that made my
White Button Down
Crisp, white and cotton. Those
three words will do your closet a world of good. White, cotton button
downs are a timeless wardrobe staple. Pair them with denim to elevate a
casual look or with a full maxi skirt for a demure evening outfit.
Though you may be tempted to throw in extra bleach to keep those whites
bright, over-bleaching actually leads to yellowing. Follow the
recommended level of bleach as outlined by your preferred brand to keep
them just right. Better yet, stock up on several white button downs
whenever you re-stock your wardrobe arsenal to ensure you always have a
crisp one on hand for those unexpected occasions that demand this
Little Black Dress
There is a reason this
little number always pops up on must-have fashion lists, it is a
wardrobe must-have! Whether your preferred silhouette is a wrap dress or
shift dress, having a black number that flatters your figure and can be
easily transformed with different accessories will go a long way and
rescue you for many last minute evening events. Opt for a dress that is
not too revealing and is a comfortable length that won’t leave you
tugging at it all evening.
affordable, comfortable and fashionable. The perfect pair of jeans will
take you from casual friday at the office to running errands on the
weekend and everything in between. For a classic version that will stand
the test of time, opt for a bootleg version in a dark wash which is
always in fashion. Have your jeans hemmed for the height of your shoe.
Once you find a style and brand you love buy two pairs and have one
hemmed the perfect length for flats and the other for heels. As a
guideline your hem should just graze the top of your shoe and be
approximately 1/2 inch from the floor.
Need a little stretch in
your denim? Look for versions with 2% lycra, the recommended amount for
denim to have the stretch you need and still hold their shape.
to the blazer. Cropped, tuxedo style, denim or wool - blazers come in
such a wide array of styles and textiles because it is truly one of the
best and most versatile layering pieces you’ll own. Whether you need a
quick coverup for a casual daytime look or want to fight a nighttime
chill in an evening look - the right blazer can do both jobs. A black
blazer with long sleeves (you can always roll them up for a more casual
look) in a versatile fabric like cotton is a good starting point.
key is having your blazer tailored to your body. Invest in a quality
fabric and inspect the lining of your piece. The lining can tell you a
lot about the quality of your blazer, generally a higher quality lining
reflects a well constructed piece.
what shoes to pair with that cute dress that happens to be the one
shade that doesn’t go with any shoe in your closet? Confidently reach
for a nude pair of pumps to finish your look. Nude pumps add height,
will make you legs look longer and can be paired with a wide range of
different color looks. Opt for a nude pair matched as close to your skin
tone as possible for the best effect.
