There are a few essentials that every woman needs in her wardrobe, irrespective of the season. After all, the classic black blazer and the ankle-grazing pair of pants forms the foundation of our wardrobe, anchoring whatever crazy, amazing pieces we find along the way. Once we tailor this list of essentials to our own needs and fashion statement, getting dressed in the mornings should be a lot easier.
This list of closet staples stretches beyond the traditional pieces like white t-shirts and skinny jeans, some of which might even take us out of our comfort zone. But then again, nothing speaks confidence like tailored elegance.
- Slip Dress
Popularized by the iconic Kate Moss, a slip dress is something you can bundle up for any season. Style them with a trendy coat and boots for a workday look or pair them with some delicate jewelry for posh dinner events.
- Camel Coat
The go-with-anything neutral cover-up of the year is definitely the camel coat. Opt for a duster length, or reach for a shorter, double-breasted style. This wardrobe staple is all about the versatile hue. Camel is one of the few non-black hues we can truly call timeless.
- Ruffle Dress
The feminine, yet sexy ruffle dress is the perfect outfit for day and night. Opt for a style with loose, cascading texture for ease of styling — nothing too fussy, but something head turning all the same.
- Midi Skirt
Pleated, pencil, or A-line, midi skirts have entered the scene with fervor and are not going anywhere, anytime soon. Mix them with t-shirts for casual days, a silk blouse when heading to a formal meeting, and a sexy camisole for late-night dinner and dancing.
Layering is a breeze when you have a bodysuit on hand. Long sleeved or short, turtleneck or scoop, this seamless top will allow you to layer for any occasion without the bunching and fussing of a classic t-shirt or tank.
- Striped Shirt
This timeless classic piece has made a comeback. It looks great when paired with brights or prints or peeking out from underneath a blazer. Work it for a lazy brunch or a day out with the girls.
- Black Tights
A great pair of tights can make your legs look slimmer and help you get away with wearing a dress that’s a little too short. Double them up for a more opaque look and/or style them with boots to keep warm.
