By Ridhika Joshi | SHILLONG:
Whether you’re one for shopping the latest trends or prefer timeless outfits built from classic pieces, there are a few necessary items that form the crux of every good wardrobe.
These interchangeable garments are the heroes of good style and are the answers that make getting dressed each morning a hassle-free experience.
These wardrobe basics are the right investment pieces that’ll keep you looking good all year round - no matter the occasion.
If you’ve always dreamt of being able to get ready in mere minutes or wish those ‘nothing to wear’ days were a thing of the past, here’s what you need to own ASAP.
BLACK (FAUX) LEATHER JACKET
It’s always leather weather! Layer it with other pieces, and it will always work. Throw it over a dress to add some grit or pair it with denim – you just can’t go wrong.
A leather jacket instantly adds the ‘cool’ factor. Ethnic wear and leather jackets can be a showstopper when paired correctly.
A WHITE BUTTON-DOWN SHIRT
Be it a summer party, an impromptu date or a work presentation, a white button-down shirt is one of the most versatile wardrobe staples.
You can jazz it up with a scarf or a light jacket for a playful look for casual occasions, or perhaps even a solid necklace that garners attention at a party.
The glorious thing about a white shirt is that it is the perfect blank canvas upon which you can draw your unique style statement.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with everything a white shirt offers!
A simple and elegant pair of black trousers not only slims the body but also elongates it.
Match it with a shirt or a blouse for work and, if you’re going to a party, a sequined top with heels will do the trick.
A BLACK SHEATH DRESS
From parties to funerals, black sheath dresses are the all-time saviours that can never let you go clueless.
You can also style your sheath dress for a casual setting by adding a pair of sneakers or loafers. One little black dress is a must-have for almost all occasions.
A PAIR OF BASIC STUD EARRINGS OR HOOPS
Stud earrings and hoops are never out of style. They are timeless, classic and versatile.
A pair of hoops or stud earrings can shimmer up your look yet keeping it minimal and can add a style statement to your basic or even party look.
It is no secret that an impressive pair of clean white sneakers will work some magic on any look.
White sneakers are not only timeless but are true essentials in any girl’s wardrobe. They can easily add a casual vibe to a more dressed up look and can complement any bold and bright colours you may want to wear during the season.
So, this brings us to the end of this list of wardrobe staples, essential for every woman out there.
No matter how eccentric the rest of your closet might be, be sure to invest in these six key styling pieces.
