Here is a list of essential items that every woman with a passion for fashion must own and work into her individual style.
A black tailored blazer is feminine, classic and versatile. It looks good on all body types, and adds an immediate twist to your outfit. Pair it with jeans, slacks or a skirt, or lay it over your shoulders on top of a cute little dress. Find one that embraces your shape and curves.
Little black dress
Invest in one that is unique and stands out. For a sophisticated look, look for the shape, detail and fabric. For a more classic version, opt for one that is more non-descript. Dress it up with some statement piece jewelry and cool accessories, or dress it down with cool sneakers and a denim or leather jacket. Do not be scared to invest in an expensive black dress - it will go a long way and serve you well.
Go for pointy-toed, suede, patent or plain leather. Wear and match it easily with everything, from your fitted cropped jeans to your little dress, skirt or slacks.
Flats are a girl’s best friend. Wear them with a sequin dress for a daring fashion statement, a pleated midi skirt, an A-line skirt, wide-leg pants, cool ripped jeans or denim shorts.
Shirt / blouse
Choose a plain one and go for neutral colors: black, white or nude. It takes you easily from working mode to party animal. If wearing a shirt, add a big cuff and statement rings or statement earrings. For your blouse, add a statement necklace. Wear both with literally anything.
Wear a statement necklace over any simple t-shirt or top and instantly elevate your look. Or add statement earrings and chunky cocktail rings to sass your outfit.
Find one that embraces your curves and shape.
Light-weight, easy to pack and unbelievably versatile, the classic trench coat stands the test of time.
Go for two different textures and fabrics. Choose a cashmere scarf for winter, and a silk chiffon one for summer.
Wear it on your shoulders over a cute dress or skirt, or pair it with cool jeans and a sassy t-shirt or even denim shorts.
