What Else Are You Missing?
As seasons change, fashion must-haves change too. But, it doesn’t mean you must buy new clothing each and every season. Perhaps a few additional pieces would make you feel good. However, a change of wardrobe isn’t really required. What would do you good is to have fashion clothing basics instead. Those are stylish, timeless pieces that never go out of style. In fact, such pieces that can be worn no matter what season it may be. They’re good enough to be kept all year-round.
Most of the items on my list are those that can be mixed and matched with the other clothing items that you have. Some of which can be used to create a layered look on that cute party dress to make it a perfect fit for an evening gathering. Because these items are multi functional and can be used like forever, I consider them as my investment pieces.
Whenever I look out for clothing items I could buy, I can’t help but think about what I already have in my closet. And yet, whenever I go out to buy investment pieces of clothing, I don’t feel guilty splurging on them at all. I figured that since I can use them no matter what season it may be, I’d rather have tons of them to mix and match than buy new clothes every time. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a pair of jeans that make you look and feel sexy because it fits you very well? Nothing could be worse than having five pairs with not one that suits your taste, body and personal style.
First, it is a must that you have an accessory that can be used for all occasions. A simple pair of diamond stud earrings is a perfect option. If you think diamonds are way over your budget, there are cheaper alternatives that you can go for. You can buy them for less but quality is similar to a diamond. These pair of earrings can be worn day and night. With this, you need not to worry on buying other jewelry pieces.
Then, there’s the wrist watch. Not only is it practical to have one to keep you from getting late, but it can be your signature of personal style too. Keep your choices to something feminine to make it easier for you to pair them up with jewelleries. Wearing a boyfriend, oversized wrist watch is so out of style already. Remember, your goal is to find pieces you can use season after another.
Third is a pair of good old denims. When looking for the perfect pair, be sure to look for one that makes your thighs look slimmer whilst raising your butt and defines your waist as if it were the smallest. You might need to try on several brands and multiple pairs before you find one that suits your taste. Every person’s body shape is different so the pair that might good look on a friend of yours might not look good on you either. If the price is too expensive for you, don’t worry about splurging! You know you deserve to have it.
The next basic clothing essential is the plain white tee. Don’t underestimate the power of a plain shirt because when you get the right cut, you’ll be surprised at how good it will look good on you. Make sure to a tee that makes you look good without the need to try it on. It’s the tee that makes grocery shopping a fashionable activity, feminine yet simply effortless to wear.
Fifth is the button-down shirt. This kind of top comes with an endless styling potential. Get them in a variation of colors and prints. Shirts as such can be pieces you can layer and partner with other clothes when needed, depending on the occasion or the season. Make sure to pick one that fits you just right, not too baggy because it’ll make you look like you’ve got more weight to hide. The contours of the shirt should look great on the contours of your body as well, without making it look too body hugging.
Last but not the least is the little black dress. This is one versatile ensemble every woman could not live without. This classic dress has become a staple in every woman’s closet because it can be worn during the day and at an evening occasion. Add some dainty accessories; you can get that dress looking sophisticated for a special corporate event! The little black dress doesn’t have to be very little. There is always that cut and style that fits you perfectly. So, when you no longer know what to wear, you can always depend on that little black dress.
I always remind myself: buy once and cry over it once. I’m pretty sure you’ll get over the money you’ve spent. You can earn that money again, perhaps to buy a new dress, again too. Just think of it as an investment, a dress that you’ll love to wear on the occasions to come.
