Every woman has an overflowing closet and yet nothing to wear. As I read this article I realized that when you can have a list of summer must haves, why not a list of items that is a must have forever. Trends change, styles come and go, but there are a few wardrobe staples that never ever go out of style. Investing in these products would never be a bad idea.
1. A well fit denim.
Nothing spells comfort better than a good old pair of denims. You can choose your own style; high waist, bell bottoms, distressed or skinny. Suitable for both formal and casual wear, this is one item that would never go out of style for centuries. I for one, have never let go off my skinny jeans since they came into fashion years ago.
2. A classic white shirt.
This one is class personified. Nothing oozes more sensuality then a well fitted crisp white shirt. Pair it with denims or a skirt, and people will know you as that sophisticated lady. But be very careful to not have any stains on it. Even a small stain will show on a white shirt. Make sure the shirt is washed well after every wear. Whites with a yellow tint are a major turnoff.
3. A black blazer.
Although they come at a high price, they are totally worth it. Just a blazer is enough to transform your entire look from fun to business. Wear it over a white shirt and a pencil skirt for formal meetings or throw it over a grey tank top and denims for a casual party. Make sure they fit well, as ill fitted blazers can be an eye sore.
4. A little black dress.
If you thought that this one will stop being in fashion, then you are wrong. Perfect for every party, a little black dress can never go wrong. Work it different ways by choosing the right accessories and you have a new look for every party. Also, black is slimming. So, nothing like an LBD to shed one size instantly.
5. Floral prints.
These prints are God sent and can be worn in so many ways. Be it a girly top, a frilly dress or a silk scarf, floral prints can never look bad. It adds fun to an outfit and perks up the entire ensemble. Go for smaller prints if you are on the heavier side. If you do not want to look too feminine, you can wear floral prints on a shoe or a bag.
6. Polka dots.
Centuries may pass, but polka dots will never go out of style. Although considered a retro trend, this style has stayed on the fashion scene ever since it made its appearance. A simple frock or a plain dotted shirt, they will always stand out in the crowd. You can even go for polka dotted shoes or bags to include them in your wardrobe. Nothing like polka dots to get you spotted.
7. Black pumps.
Black shoes are a must in every woman’s wardrobe. It goes with both formal as well as casual wear. Opt for a glossy black finish shoe and brush them before you wear them every time. A black shoe that looks grey is a big turn off. If heels are not for you, you can even go in for flat ones. They look just as classy.
8. Nude pumps.
Nothing better than nude colored shoes to go with every outfit. These are the best shoes to wear when you have nothing that matches your clothes. They are like second skin and make you look neat and proper. These are the best shoes to wear with bright colored clothes or neon shades.
9. A big dial watch.
We all are now used to checking the time on our phones. But a watch is more than just a device to tell us the time. A big chunky watch can be the perfect accessory in more ways than one. With one on your wrist, you don’t need anything else. Opt for leather ones or metallic strap ones in shades of rose gold, black or silver. They go with almost everything that you wear.
10. Checkered shirts.
Checks or plaid can and will never go out of fashion. Tuck a checkered shirt in your formal trousers for that business look or throw one unbuttoned over a plain old tee and look casual and funky. They are life savers when you have to get dressed in a hurry.
11. A multipurpose tote.
Every woman is known to carry her world in her bag. Clutches and satchels come and go, but the good old tote always remains loyal to every fashionista. From carrying makeup, scarves, keys, water and what not, this bag is a favorite to every woman. Pick them up in shades of blue, grey, brown and black, to match almost every outfit.
12. Wayfarers or Aviator glasses.
No closet is complete without these. The good old wayfarers or aviators are all that one needs to lift up a look from chic to uber chic. Wear one over denims, a checkered shirt and flats to get the ‘Don’t mess with me’ look effortlessly.
