The goal of anyone building a wardrobe should be to include timeless pieces that are versatile enough to be worn in a variety of different combinations. This way you’ll avoid cluttering up your space with clothes you just don’t wear, and at the same time stock up on enduring pieces that are multifaceted in their usefulness and changeability. The true benefit of this is that you’ll be investing more money in quality pieces that will last you longer, never lose style and contribute to the wellbeing of the environment. This applies to all seasons too, whether it’s a summer outfit or a layered winter fashion look. With that in mind, we’ll take a look at a few statement pieces and wardrobe must-haves that will enhance any look for years to come.
Nothing says style and refinement quite like leather, and a skirt is the ideal base on which to build an intricate outfit. You can wear a leather skirt in a number of different ways; maybe something short, a wrap or pencil skirt with a tucked in sweater for more waist definition. It’s a great choice for summer with a halter top, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear it in winter; some heavy gauge stockings will make sure you don’t freeze and compliment the dark color of the leather.
A Vintage Watch
Although not a garment of clothing, accessories absolutely add aesthetic value to any outfit. It can be something interesting and eye-catching but subtle enough that it doesn’t scream for attention. A vintage watch is not only a good investment, but it’s something that will add style and class to any outfit without being too showy. Of course, picking out something of that value should be carefully considered and not taken lightly. Luckily sites like this have an extensive selection of watches, meaning you can view a vast number of different timepieces before deciding on your favorite.
A Statement Coat
Winter doesn’t have to be all about dull, heavy and colorless coats. Too many people opt for black (presumably to match their mood) but the truth is that coats don’t have to be boring. In fact, they can be the centerpiece of your entire outfit, and radiate your personality while supplementing your style. Think bright colors, rich patterns and deep textures – all of these will set your outfit off while turning heads at the same time. A good example of this is the list of statement coats Instyle recently put together but if you need more convincing then take a look at Vogue’s 50 most epic street style coats of all time.
