7 Basic Pieces Every Girl Needs in Her Wardrobe
We all need style staples in our closets. Without these top 5 items, we’d have to go through different trends and get sucked into buying the latest item that’s labeled “must-have”.
These top 5 items are updated for the modern woman who totally loves the latest London Fashion Week looks but are afraid to just buy the next trendy item. So before you head out, make sure that you have these 5 pieces in your wardrobe to help you get through another season while staying fashionably intact.
Nude heels will make your legs look endless. For a few seasons, everyone loved a good pair of black pumps. But nude heels will definitely have a longer run than black pumps thanks to the good old lengthening effect.
And who wouldn’t want to look like they have endless legs, right? But if you don’t love wearing heels or would love a more comfortable pair, go for nude wedges.
Wedges used to have a bad reputation but this year’s styles are definitely gorgeous. For a French girl vibe, however, you can always go for nude ballet flats!
The Little Black Dress
A wardrobe is not complete without the infamous little black dress. The little black dress is versatile, can be dressed up or dressed down and is just a classic piece that will always stand the test of time.
A Basic Jumpsuit/Romper
A basic jumpsuit is more versatile than you think! It can get you through a few seasons especially since the 70s are going to be in full swing this coming Spring-Summer 2014. So might as well grab a pair now before jumpsuits get another revival and get labeled as a must-have item.
Especially if you buy off-season, you’ll get better value for your buck. Wholesale Clothing Factory has a lot of stylish and basic jumpsuit options to suit your taste and body type.
White Button-Down Shirt
This is a wardrobe classic that every lady must own. It is a basic piece that can be worn with a classic pencil skirt for work or with jeans for a more casual look.
Regardless of what look you are going for, the button down shirt is one of those must have pieces that can be used to create a wide variety of looks.
A lot of wardrobe must-have lists don’t mention swimsuits. We all think we only need a pair for summer but there are times wherein you’ll actually need a swimsuit out of nowhere. Yes, there are definitely those instances wherein a swimsuit is in order. A hot spring vacation, perhaps. Who knows?
Choose a one-piece number or a basic bikini that’s of high quality material. Make sure that the cut and color suits you best. If you want to downplay your shoulders, you can go for a bandeau type or a halter swimsuit. It’s up to you!
High Quality Jeans
Everyone (male or female!) needs a good pair of classic, dark blue, straight leg denims. Go for jeans with no or minimal embellishments and make sure that the stitching is classic dark brown (barely seen) or completely blends in with the rest of the denim.
High quality jeans fit way better and will last you a lifetime. Plus, these kinds of denims actually feel better the older it gets. Cheap denims sometimes look plain old and dirty (not casually distressed) when they do get old and dirty! So go for a classic, high quality pair that you can wear dressed up or down.
A Great Leather Bag
Take a lot at your wardrobe’s palette and determine whether you need a brown or black leather bag. However, black bags are certain to weather the trends as opposed to brown bags that usually look more casual even with all the added embellishments. If you can, go for a classic black leather bag in either a square or rectangular shape.
There are lots of options for high quality leather bags out there. Just do note that bags with simpler lines are more favorable as these will last a few more seasons as opposed to bags with lots of hardware.
