Building a functional wardrobe is key to maintaining fashion at all times. Having a few essential items will save you from the same old purchases you relentlessly find yourself making and give your personality the jump start it needs to materialize into FABULOUS.
#1– Day Dress
The right day dress can offer a duo approach to fashion and can give you the appropriate support and length to accompany those pointy black flats or Havaianas you already have in your closet. Add a cardigan and tights and you will come out a star at your job interview. Lose the sleeves and transform your look to ‘Sultry Night Vixen’ by a mere transformation to your accessories.
#2- The Perfect Jean
Jeans are versatile and can up-do or down play a style depending on your mood or what the occasion is. Find a pair that showcases your figure and you will never have to argue with your full-length mirror again. These Miss Chic Jeans from LA are fashionably studded and won’t break your wallet, as they ring up at around $69 a pair.
Camisoles, saving graces if you will, make great camouflage accompaniments for burn out shirts or abet tailored sheathing.
Go casual for the weekend by sporting a cami as a stand-alone in the company of your favorite pair of jeans and sandals, or dress-up your cami with a nice pair of slacks and a shawl.
#4- A Stylish Trench
Every closet needs to house a trench coat that is functional and stylish. Even when it’s not raining, a stylish trench can make a fashion statement without taking away versatility. Join your trench with a ruffled blouse, wide-leg pants, and peep-toe flats to get the perfect work attire or go dressy casual by combining a trench with a pair of shorts or with leggings and boots. This knee-length XOXO double-breasted trench reiterates that a silhouette can be flattering to any pair of legs.
#5-The Universal White Blouse
Like the Little Black Dress, a white blouse will never go out of style and is essential to tie any wardrobe together. Jeans, skirts, shorts, jeans, and slacks all enjoy the camaraderie of a classic white blouse and it’s no mystery that this simple addition will save you time and energy getting ready in the morning.
