A new month means a new paycheck to pseudo-squander on the finer things in life, namely fashion. You’ve made it through another month of life and that deserves at least one little present addressed to you from you. With that in mind, we have pulled together a list of essential pieces absolutely every woman needs, wants and deserves to have in their closet (read: sprawled somewhere across their floor).
There aren’t many times you can get away with wearing something plaid but fall you can, oh you so can. It could be a scarf or, if you really want to jazz up your look, it could be a top, something you’ve found on one of the glorious affordable online boutiques. Just pair it with a pair of skinny jeans, some riding boots, and a floppy-brimmed hat and you’ll look fifty shades of fabulous.
The Black Blazer
No wardrobe is complete without a tailored black blazer. Period. It is a timeless classic, sophisticated and feminine and, best of all, perfect for absolutely every body type. Actually, we used the phrase “best of all” too early because what makes this a must-have is the fact you can throw it on with almost anything – jeans, skirt, little dresses, suit trousers, anything. Just make sure it fits and shows off that waist of yours.
Red Not Black
Every girl knows they need a pair of flats in their closet, but what most girls do wrong is presume they need black flats. How boring. How obvious. How safe. Instead, separate your feet from the ground with a pair of red flats and give your every look that extra splash of color. Wear them to work, pull them on for that date you are running late for and pair them with a tee and trench coat. Voila. You look great.
The Striped Tee
Fashion has a way of coming back round almost as routinely as the sun, which is why we are seeing a strong resurgence of the striped tee at the moment; that retro favorite of everyones. It is a timeless classic, but it is also seriously cool. It is the simplest way to bring a pair of jeans to life and letting it poke out from under a coat is a great way to add a little edge to your outfit.
This fall, let your accessories do the talking. Rock your closet basics, the comfier and cozier items, the ones that would see you coast under the radar and then bring them to life with some seriously bold accessories and statement pieces of jewelry. You’ll be amazed at how much a single necklace can bring your outfit into the realm of stunning.
People say that no outfit is complete without a smile, but we say no closet is complete without a little black dress. This is nothing new, of course. Everyone woman knows they need an LBD, but you need to revel in the importance of having a super-special one. It could be the way it fits, the way it boosts your assets, the embellishment on it, or the detailed sleeves; anything that makes you smile each time you catch a glimpse of it.
