These 10 Wardrobe Essentials Never Go Out Of Style

In fashion, style on February 12, 2021 at 8:30 am

Fashion makes the world go around and every season we are bombarded (delightfully so) with the hottest trends for the upcoming season. It’s only natural to want to go shopping to fill your closet with more clothes for maximum style options. There is nothing inherently wrong with this approach because it’s always nice to have something new to wear. However, it’s important to be mindful of and continuously edit what’s already in your closet. This will help you to determine what you already have, what fits and what is appropriate for various occasions. Continuously editing your wardrobe prevents you from endlessly shopping for items you may not need. Needless items can lead to having a closet full of nothing.

Trends are not a bad thing. As a matter of fact, adding a few trendy pieces can add the pop your wardrobe needs. They are fun, but like a vapor, they exist for but a moment. And while certain trends can re-emerge, it’s important to build a wardrobe out of essential foundation pieces that never go out of style. If you find yourself cleaning out your closet, these are items that you will want to keep. Conversely, if you don’t have these items, consider investing in these before you purchase more trendy items. The following 10 items are the essential wardrobe pieces for every closet.

Blazers. Once reserved for corporate settings, blazers have become a key style piece that performs many wardrobe functions. They can be worn with a multitude of items like denim, skirts, dresses, and shorts. If a blazer is an “appropriate” length, it can also be worn as a dress. Blazers can also serve as outer wear and depending on the season, they can be worn throughout the year and for various occasions. Get creative with your blazers by adding belts, lapel pins and even switching out the buttons. Roll or push up the sleeves and add arm cuffs for a modern, edgy vibe.

Slip Dresses And A-line Skirts. The versatility of two these pieces is endless. No longer reserved for work or dressing up, slip dresses and a-line skirts work with multiple wardrobe pieces and most body types. Go from work to play by pairing with blazers, t-shirts and cute sweatshirts. Wear any type of footwear from pumps to boots to sneakers. Depending on the fabric, you may even be able to finesse these two pieces at a semi-formal event. Hem sizes may vary per season so the best way to approach the “appropriate” length is to wear works best for your figure and your lifestyle.

White Button Down And White T-shirt. You can never go wrong with a white shirt of any type. Button downs may not be your style but use your imagination and let your sense of style lead you to the type of white blouse and white t-shirt staple to add to your wardrobe. Wear it with anything any time of year. These types of shirts also make excellent layering pieces.

Denim. Denim has become the main go to piece in everyone’s wardrobe. Once reserved for activities such as working and playing in the yard, denim is acceptable for many events and occasions. Skinny jeans are losing a bit of steam but with the high rise and straight leg options, you will always look polished. Pair with a sequin shirt and strappy sandals or a button down and statement jewelry with loafers for maximum style impact.

Tote Bag. Large enough to carry everything and stylish enough to elevate any outfit, totes are a staple that everyone on the go needs. Opt for something that is practical but still stylish.

Clutch. Once considered a go to bag for evening and special occasions, clutches are now worn any time of day. For those who are looking to streamline or downsize their carry-all, the clutch is a perfect solution. With varying fabrics and designs, clutches can go with anything

Sneakers And Loafers. More than an option for comfort, these two styles of footwear expand the versatility of your wardrobe. They also can be stylish alternatives for when your feet have grown tired of your boots and stilettos.
