Timeless pieces are ones you can repeatedly wear without tiring out from. When seasons change investing in timeless pieces can make you look stylish and help you save. After all, who hasn’t been caught in the nightmare of rummaging through the closet to find the right outfit and can’t pick one?
With the world stepping to normalcy, we must accept that the era of sweatpants is ending. With that in mind, many women do not want to abandon the freedom and comfort of stay-at-home clothes. From shoes to tops and bags, comfort and style are what most women primarily seek. Although relaxed fashion has its place, consider ten must-have wardrobe essentials you can wear every season.
Versatile and stylish, a white shirt is the chameleon of clothes because it suits various styles and can take you from a casual to a formal look in a snap. A white t-shirt can come in multiple tailoring, textiles, and styles. If you pair it with jeans for a casual daytime look or team it up with a blazer, it can become the ultimate wardrobe accessory.
When it comes to pants, the cut makes a big difference; just as there are a variety of jeans cuts, you can wear any style of black pants if the shape makes you feel good and gives you confidence. Black pants are transformational; they suit various styles; a classic pair can easily match flats or boots with a low heel. If you wear it with a sweatshirt on top, it can match a casual look, add a blazer or dressier shirt, and you can wear it to the office.
If there is a chill in the air, a sweater can compliment your outfit. With various styles with batwing sleeves, long button-front cardigans with belts, and knitted ones with different knit patterns, a cozy sweater can be your best friend all season round. The great thing about choosing a neutral colour is that it can easily be paired with any outfit, be it bold print blouses, casual jeans, or dressy skirts.
High-Waisted Midi Skirt
The midi skirt is always in style; it comes in a variety of colours and prints. Fashion designers believe its appeal can be linked to its versatility. It suits a variety of body shapes and comes from materials like silks or drapes. Leopard print midi skirts are also popular. The history of leopard prints can be traced to 18 Century France, where elaborate brocades of leopard prints were in style. You will never tire out of ideas when styling a midi skirt because it comes in various colours and materials and can easily match blouses, pullovers, sweatshirts, and open-toe heels.
A classic wrinkle-resistant blazer is the perfect clothing to throw over anything, whether a work dress, jeans, or a skirt. If you travel often, a wrinkle-resistant blazer can be your smart companion in air-conditioned airports, even in hot summers. It can easily match other outfit ensembles like trousers, jeans, or a skirt. A classic fitted blazer is ideal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t choose a relaxed fit that complements a relaxed top t-shirt, turtleneck, vest, or colorful skirt.
When it comes to jeans, choosing the right fit can be challenging. We live in the era of anything goes, which means there are skinny jeans, flared, acid washed, upcycled, and just about any other style you could think of. A closet full of jeans adds to the confusion, so choosing a specific style that suits you is essential. A straight-leg high waist jeans never goes out of style; choose one without rips or stone washes for more styling options.
Lace was invented in the 15 Century in Italy; considered one of the most pricey and luxurious pieces, it certainly warrants every woman’s attention. Lace was initially made by aristocratic women who utilized the help of highly skilled, poorly paid women to stitch the garments together. In our technologically advanced world, machines have replaced looms and needles for embroidery. A lace top with various styles and colours can make you look effortlessly elegant.
Faux Leather Skirt
Faux leather skirts are becoming increasingly popular in the fall and are a classic statement piece. With various cuts, designs, and lengths; longer and softer shapes are trending in the runways. Because leather is a versatile material, you can match a leather skirt with tights, flats, and wedges; there is no limit. A leather skirt can give you a simultaneously playful, chic, and edgy look.
Two Piece Suit
The women’s suit has been the most influential garment in women’s fashion for over 150 years. With various styles and colours, the women’s suit denotes the concept of female authority. Fashion designers have conjured a variety of designs for working women, with trending pink suits gaining popularity to demonstrate women’s sense of strength and purpose. Even if you don’t work in an office, a suit is a classic piece you will never regret owning. It can be your go-to piece when you want to look professional.
A stylish halter dress is a must-have wardrobe accessory. Whatever colour you choose, such a dress can take chunks off your closet, and become the ultimate piece for formal and semi-casual events.
