Picture this: you stand in front of a full closet and think "I don't have a thing to wear!" Sound familiar? While it can be fun to bounce from trend to trend, you need reliable essentials in your wardrobe that you always feel great wearing. The foundation of any Fashionista's closet is a full arsenal of tried and true basics that help you look pulled together on a moment's notice. You can easily update your look with scarves, jewelry, and trendier pieces. Here are our Clothing Cove - Top 10 Wardrobe Essentials for every fashionista.
1. The Always In Demand Black Dress Pant
A great-fitting pair of black pants is a versatile piece in any woman's wardrobe. They can be dressed down on the weekend, dressed up for a night out, and are always office-appropriate. We carry multiple brands of Perfect Fit Pants, which offer slimming designs and all-day comfort.
2. The Indispensable White Tee Or Tank
This vital piece can be worn with anything from dress pants to breezy skirt or shorts. Layer with a blazer or cardigan for extra warmth and an office-appropriate look. Jazz this vital piece up with colorful scarves or statement necklaces. If white makes you look washed out, then opt for ivory instead.
3. The Crucial Dark Denim
Like any woman, you'll want a flattering pair of jeans that makes you feel confident in any situation. Quality jeans is a worthwhile investment piece since you'll wear them on a regular basis. Look for dark denim since it is more slimming than its lighter counterparts, and it also looks more appropriate for dressier occasions than medium-wash or light denim.
4. The Imperative Skirt
The much-needed black skirt is a flattering and feminine option for work, social events, and other circumstances. Choose a midi or maxi length for optimal versatility since you'll look appropriate in any environment with a below-the-knee length.
5. The Fundamental Classic Blouse
A smartly designed blouse instantly makes you look polished. Wear it with jeans for Saturday brunch or with a blazer and dress pants to a business meeting. Details like french cuffs, an asymmetric hem, or a timeless print can add a distinctive touch to this wardrobe basic.
6. The Must-Have Little Black Dress
The little black dress is a staple in a woman's wardrobe. It's timeless and slimming, making it a classic for dressy events. Wear the same dress again and again with different shoes, jewelry, and purses, and you'll always look chic.
7. The Primary Everyday Dress
Less formal than a cocktail dress, this piece helps you look effortlessly pulled-together at work or other events during the day. Choose a tasteful dress that hits at the knee or lower, and that doesn't reveal too much skin. Knit fabrics prevent you from looking overly formal, and they'll also keep you comfortable all day.
8. The Obligatory Blazer Or Dressy Cardigan
Whether you're at the office or a cocktail party, you'll want to have an extra layer on hand in case you get chilly. A blazer, refined jacket, or dressy cardigan also instantly dresses an outfit up and gives you a confident, polished appearance. These important essentials also help provide needed coverage so you can get away with wearing a tank top to the board meeting.
9. The Prerequisite Scarf
Wear a single outfit with different scarves for a multitude of looks. For even more variety, learn to wrap and tie your scarves in a variety of ways to obtain new looks from the same scarf. We also love how scarves can tie the colors of an outfit together or add a pop of color to an otherwise subdued ensemble. Scarves provide extra warmth in the winter, and you can wear a myriad of lightweight scarves in the summer. With all the textures, colors, patterns, embellishments, and widths available, the options for creating fun outfits are endless.
10. The Invaluable Great Pair Of Sunglasses
The well-dressed fashionista doesn't forget her fabulous shades, either! No matter where you live, sunglasses are indispensable year-round as you drive or enjoy the outdoors. We love the Brighton brand for its designer styles. Many of the styles also coordinate with the Brighton jewelry and purses to help you look pulled-together without any effort. Brighton also carries fun and chic reading glasses as well.
