If you are striving to maintain a minimalist wardrobe with a few select, high-quality pieces, you can certainly make that wardrobe incredibly versatile when you have all the right fashion staples. Having key pieces that are interchangeable and able to be worn with anything else in your closet will dramatically increase efficiency and help you filter out anything that isn’t of value to you. In this post, we will take a look at a few fashion staples every woman should invest in to not only improve her wardrobe but maybe even her quality of life.
On the surface, it may seem like an accessory such as sunglasses is nowhere near as important as other pieces like sweaters, jeans, jackets, and so on. But virtually everyone needs a good pair of sunglasses, for practical purposes, style, or both. Treat yourself to a high-quality pair of sunglasses in a style you love and know you would wear every day. If you are going to pay a little more for high-end shades, they should be something you could wear with any of your outfits. Classics include the aviator style as well as all-black sunglasses with dramatic, black lenses and frames. Consider the shape of your face too since certain sunglasses styles will look more flattering on certain face shapes.
Every woman understands the struggle to find a pair of women’s jeans that are just as chic and flattering as they are comfy. When you finally find that pair of jeans, it’s like finding gold. Too often, it seems like you can only have one or the other when it comes to jeans: either something that looks fabulous but feels uncomfortable or something that is ultra-comfy but looks too drab or unflattering. Rest assured, it is possible to find that perfect pair of jeans that look just as great as they feel. Do a little research, decide on what jean cut you like best, and try on several pairs until you find the one that fits like a glove.
You deserve a statement jacket that makes you feel like a brand-new woman every time you put it on. A jacket that you can wear with virtually every outfit you own, ranging from your workout outfits to your professional attire. The right statement jacket will be different for every woman. Know your style before you begin your search for the perfect statement jacket. Love leather? Invest in a genuine leather moto jacket in black to give every outfit you own an edge (or opt for a vegan leather jacket!). Love the cozy yet chic look and feel of suede? Get yourself an asymmetrical zip-up suede jacket with detailed shoulders. Are you in awe of the edgy look of the bomber jacket and love the fact that you can wear it with gym clothes, casual wear, and even dresses? You know the drill; go out and get yourself a bomber!
When we talk about fashion staples, we don’t just mean clothes you wear out in public. The clothing you wear in the comfort of your own home deserves just as much attention as anything you would step out of the house in. Want to improve your sleep quality and feel amazing during your evening routine? Treat yourself to a brand-new, high-end pajama set. Explore your options. Maybe you love plaid flannel and are perfectly content lounging around the house at night in a long-sleeve, plaid flannel pajama set. Perhaps you want to splurge on sheer decadence and luxury by investing in a pair of silk pajamas.
It's likely you have a handful of special occasions to attend throughout the year: weddings, family reunions, fancy work functions. For a special occasion, you need a special occasion dress! You don’t need a closet jam-packed with 20 different dresses that you hardly wear when you can instead have one or two high-value dresses that are versatile enough to wear for many occasions. One example of a special occasion dress that is arguably a fashion staple is the little black dress. If you don’t own one, go out and get one now! A little black dress is timeless, meaning it will never go out of style, and one that is made with high-quality material can last you for many years.
Once you experience cashmere, you won’t want to bother with any other sweater material. All you need is one cashmere sweater to transform your wardrobe and your life. It can be any style, ranging from cashmere cardigans to cashmere turtlenecks. A cashmere sweater in a neutral, solid color can be worn with every other article of clothing in your wardrobe, whether it’s a pair of comfy leggings or a chic pencil skirt.
