The wardrobe is one of the most important and valuable item for any woman because it can help transform her. You might not have a large wardrobe with all designer labels and trends but the little that you have can be matched in unique and fashionable styles. The first thing that you need to do is to get rid of all the clothes that do not fit you, suit you or have not been worn for a long time. The reason why a lot of women are hesitant to get rid of such clothing is because they were either too expensive or they hold sentimental value. For expensive clothes, you can hold a garage sale and use the money to buy new clothes and accessories. There are basic wardrobe essentials that all women should have such as:
The right undergarments
Ill fitting undergarments like bras or panties can totally destroy the most stunning outfit because it will show lines, bulges and bumps through it. By now, you are already aware that getting the right bra size can be tricky and even frustrating. Most department stores offer free professional bra fitting which will help you to choose different designs that fit perfectly. Also, you might want to use body shape undergarments if the dress you are going to wear has thin material or is closely fitted. This will leave you with a smooth silhouette and you will be surprised to find out that even celebrities often use body shape garments.
Little black dress
This is the most important essential for any woman’s wardrobe because it flatters all women. The best thing about the little black dress is that it camouflages flaws and highlights all the positives. Select a style that can suit multiple occasions and with a few accessories, you can change the look. However, for the little black dress to work, you should choose a style that suits your figure and age. Just accessorize with statement jewelry and stiletto heels and you will look like you stepped of a fashion magazine.
Crisp white blouse
A fitted classic white blouse can be matched with almost every outfit in your wardrobe because of its versatility. It is imperative to make sure that you select a fabric that is durable and comfortable especially since you will likely wear it a lot. If you feel that the shirt is not longer as appealing as it was before, you can wear it over a bikini or swimsuit! Just try matching it with a well fitted pair of jeans and a blazer and you will not regret it.
You should invest in a well tailored quality blazer and you can turn a formal look to a casual look in a minute. Teamed with a classic white short, will be handy for a professional look and teamed with a t shirt, creates a stunning casual look. Opt for basic colors like navy, dark grey or black and ensure that tailoring and detailing are perfect. Do not be tempted to be too bold with color because you can add it with the right accessories like jewelry and scarves.
Well fitting jeans
Finding the perfect and well fitting jeans can be frustrating but if you do find one, then all your dreams will come true. It is important to make sure that you select the right style to flatter your body type. Make sure that the jeans fit well around your bottom, hips and waist without leaving you with bulges and bumps. Whether you choose flare, boot cut or skinny jeans, you can dress them up with a blazer or cardigan for a relaxed look or with a blazer and heels for a classy stunning combination.
You can choose to either invest in a pencil skirt or classic straight skirt but make sure that it flatters your figure. Some people are fortunate and can look stunning in both styles but for others, they have to choose one or the other. If you do not wear skirts a lot, then 2-3 skirts in varying lengths are enough for your wardrobe. Skirts are imperative if you want a sophisticated and feminine look and you can combine them with tops to suit different occasions.
