Every woman should have some key pieces in her wardrobe. These pieces should be versatile, body flattering, and good quality. Timeless and functional, the wardrobe staples are the ultimate must to make your wardrobe work for you.
A good tailored blazer in a neutral shade is the ultimate classic. It suits all body types and can easily be worn for work, rest, or play. It should fit your well on the shoulders and accentuate your waist. The length should also suit your frame. Pair it with everything from jeans, skirts, and dresses to trousers and cocktail gowns.
Blue ballerinas are a fun way to introduce colours to your autumn wardrobe. Neutral hues of black, tan, or grey are always favourites but blues, reds, or wines will work with most looks. Pair it with ankle length jeans, a knitted jumper and trench jacket.
This season scarves are popular as ever. Coming in all sorts of shapes, designs, and colours, there is a scarf to suit everyone. Make sure to choose the size and colour to suit you. Even if you are wearing a simple dress and coat, a scarf will wow your look in an instant. A simple top and jeans paired with a printed scarf is a simple but stylish autumn casual look.
Black is back, and it is natural that the little black dress will be the star of your wardrobe. Go for a style that really suits you and wear it for most occasions from christenings to birthday dos to Christmas parties. Pair it with high heels and accessorise it with jewellery or an elegant scarf.
For all your skirts and dresses, a good quality pair of black opaque tights with heels is the ultimate legs lengthening accessory. The higher the denier the more coverage you get, and even if the dress is a little too short, you can still get away with it.
No wardrobe is complete without a pair of flared or bootlegged jeans. Skinnies have been, and are still, a hugely popular style choice, but flared are always flattering for smart to casual looks. Try to always wear them with some heels even if it is just two inches, otherwise they can swamp you.
The most worthy and stylish investment piece in every woman’s wardrobe is the trench coat. A classic single or double breasted style in a neutral shade and in an A-line shape is what to look for.
