When you’re trying to build up your wardrobe, it’s tempting to just purchase cheap items that can last you a season or two. A better option is to focus on the essential items that you can mix and match easily all year long. An added bonus to that is that these are items that are more likely to last for years, helping you to create your own style that’s as unique to you as your fingerprints.
A bright, filmy scarf can do so much for your wardrobe. There are countless different ways that you can wear it, and it can look incredibly different no matter what you wear it with. Use it to tie back your hair or as a belt. Use it underneath a blazer to peek out. Use it as a scarf. No matter what you do, it’s going to add a splash of color and interest to everything you pair with it. It can even become your signature piece.
A Black Skirt
It doesn’t really matter what style you choose, a basic black skirt does so much for your wardrobe. You really don’t even need to limit yourself. Sure, one black skirt is all you truly need, but several different styles give you even more options. Pencil skirts are great for the office or even for a night out on the town. A-line skirts are incredibly flattering for a variety of figures and a maxi skirt is easy to dress up or down.
Invest in a good, quality pair of leather boots. They can be ankle booties, knee-high boots, or even cowboy boots. Leather boots can go with just about anything and they wear like iron if you take care of them. They’re also always in style, no matter what other trends are on the horizon. Black leather boots are a great neutral option, but don’t hesitate to go with cognac or another color of leather if it’s one that will work with the rest of your wardrobe and you’ll get a lot of wear out of.
A Leather Jacket
Leather jackets are another item that never go out of style. They are incredibly versatile, since you can dress them up or down, and they go with just about everything. Invest in one that fits well and that you like wearing, because you’ll have it for years if you take care of it properly.
Wardrobe essentials are those items that you can build your entire wardrobe around. Invest wisely in them and enjoy them.
