Every fashion conscious lady knows that there are timeless pieces that never go off season, and should therefore always exist in their closets. Timeless pieces may include a designer pair of shoe or handbag, that gorgeous choker that may choke other ladies with envy or that stylish scarf that accentuates your long neck.
Below are four basic wardrobe must-haves for all seasons, including are a few suggestions of how to dress them up, or down depending on occasion or list of errands on any given day.
This is a staple in any lady’s wardrobe. A well-fitting blazer accentuates your figure, giving shape to your waistline and draws attention to the flow of any outfit. In case you are a little bulky around the waistline, it will draw attention away from the waistline and on to your shoulders, giving you a look of being well put. Today’s blazers come in all forms, and an adventurous soul will play around with bright colors, kitenge, khanga, stripes, texture, and length, so as to fit any occasion.
Well-fitting blazers can be paired with A-line dresses or skirts, a pair of jeans or shorts for a fun day out, a pencil skirt for that office meeting or interview, or a pair of tights with heels for a fun night out. Don’t be afraid to try out the boyish look by wearing a bow-tie or tie with your blazer to break out the monotony once in a while.
If you don’t already have this with you, then get out there and buy or get a custom made one from a creative designer.
Wallets, of course, contains the money and credit cards we intend to spend at the market or mall, and at the nail and beauty parlor. Investing in an exquisite wallet is one of the soundest decisions any lady can make, whether young or old. There are various types, sizes, and designs of wallets, but a practical girl would want to have two types of wallets;
a) A small wallet that can hold all your cash and cards
b) A big statement wallet that can fit in your handbag, but also act as an all-purpose clutch bag that can be carried on its own. This may be in a neutral color to match almost any of your outfits, although you can have several.
A good pair of shoes in any lady’s closet will be the source of joy and comfort for days on, giving off an air of self-confidence and that bounce that makes you the envy of many. A comfortable, classic black single sole heel that matches almost any outfit including flared or skinny jeans, pants or skirt suits for office meetings or interviews is a must have.
A pair of flat doll shoes that also go well with almost all outfits is ideal for walks to the bus station or a trip to the mall in shorts or a fitting mini dress or skirt. These are available in different colors and designs ranging in peep toe, round toe or pointed; classic sneakers are ideal for the walk in a park, or around the neighborhood, and can be worn with a denim mini skirt, a pair of shorts or jeans, or a skater dress or skirt; a lovely pair of flip flops or open shoes are ideal for hot days and when you want to show off your well-done pedicure and may be paired with long or short dresses, pants or shorts.
