EIGHT ESSENTIAL PIECES TO BUILDING A CHIC WARDRODE. Spring is right around the corner. While it may be on your radar to revamp your wardrobe and purge your closet of last season’s trends for new looks, it’s important to avoid the trend trap and select a few key pieces for your wardrobe that will be staples!
When selecting wardrobe essentials, opt for neutral hues such as grey or black and add pops of color throughout. Make sure to make room in your closet for your new wardrobe before a major shopping spree. Check out how to “Create the Ultimate Fashion Closet in 3 Steps” for tips.
Here are eight essential pieces for building a chic wardrobe:
Blazer: A blazer offers many style options. It can be worn to the office for a professional look or with boyfriend jeans for a casual look. Opt for tailored styles with a lining for the best fit.
Black Pants: Black pants with a modern twist are a must for any wardrobe. They work great with a blazer for a suited look. Pair with a denim jacket for a laid back contemporary look.
Print Blouse: A printed blouse will add flare and fun to your wardrobe especially if it has a pop color. Coordinate with a pencil skirt or jeans.
Little Black Dress: An LBD is one look that has become a style phenomenon and won’t be going anywhere soon. A little black dress is great for all occasions, casual to formal. Go for a fun silhouette or monochromatic pattern.
Basic White Tee: A basic white tee is great for those days when nothing seems to work. Dressed up with a suit or dress down with your favorite jeans.
Jeans: Jeans are a stylish addition to any wardrobe. They are great for denim day at the office, a night out on the town with the girls and even a first date. Choose a style that best flatters your figure. The boot cut is flattering to most figures.
Pencil Skirt: A sleek pencil skirt can be worn from office to evening. Try a style with a feminine print or luxurious fabric such as lace.
Denim Jacket: A denim jacket is great with almost everything in your wardrobe – paired with a pencil skirt for a more polished look or flirty with a dress for an evening out on the town.
