Have you committed a fashion crime lately? Well, if you don’t have certain wardrobe staples in your closet, you may as well be guilty as charged! As a number one rule of fashion (or womanhood in general), there are certain essentials that we must have and embrace in our daily lives. If you aren’t sure what they are, check below for a list of the top five items that you shouldn’t leave the mall without! Take a look:
The Little Black Dress
In this shot, flirty meets sexy as Mattieologie pairs her LBD with open-toe, strappy heels for an elegant yet fierce look.
Undoubtedly one of my favorite pieces to wear, an LBD should be a friend to all. Not only is it super sexy, but its versatility makes it simple to dress up for a night on the town with your girls or dress down for a productive day in the office. Because wearing black often slims you down, it will immediately hide a few unwanted problem areas. What’s not to love?
Flattering Skinny Jeans
Style Me Grasie looks comfy chic in dark finish skinnies.
Finding the perfect pair of skinny jeans is an indescribable feeling, but it is almost like finding the perfect foundation – it takes patience, effort, and a lot of testers! If you are a certain height (say 5’3 and under), it may be even harder to find that one pair that does you justice and doesn’t bunch up around your ankles. But once you find the pair that accentuates your body and gives you the shape you desire, you can rule the world!
Gabi Fresh‘s mint handbag adds just enough pop without being too bold for everyday wear.
Every woman deserves to splurge on herself for one luxury handbag that fits every situation, whether that situation be a business meeting or happy hour drinks. The key is to select a bag that is large enough to carry all your necessities (e.g., planner, cell phone, makeup, etc…), but also one with structure that is professional yet can practically go with anything.
For every fashionable woman, a major key to success is definitely exuding the confidence and looking the part. A tailored blazer is a classic option and is the perfect staple to make just that impression. To keep things modern and chic, make sure the blazer is tailored to your proportions for the ultimate fitted silhouette.
A Killer Pump
Now, trust me, these aren’t for the faint of heart. When it comes to heels, my motto has always been “The higher, the better!” There are many ways to wear a good stiletto heel – with a midi skirt and fitted tank, skinnies, structured trousers, and the list goes on. Opt for pointy-toe heels, which tend to elongate your leg and instantly give your ensemble a polished, ultra-feminine look.
