Not a fan of excess? Here are 10 pieces your wardrobe actually needs. From the sexy little black dress, to the new and improved blazer, check out these stand-through-time staples to wear all year round.
The Little Black Everything
Everyone knows about the LBD and its magical powers of versatility. That being said, some of us have skimped on this staple, or worse, don't even own one. Synonymous with chic and timeless style, this fashion pick is a necessary investment for every wardrobe. If you're looking to upgrade yours this summer, look for one with a V neckline and a fitted waist, as they tend to be the most flattering on every body type.
If you're going to invest money on any item, a classic trench should be on that list. Not only will you get tons of mileage as this topper transitions easily throughout all the seasons, its classic design never goes out of style. Opt for one with removable sleeves for a summer-friendly option.
A well-tailored blazer instantly upgrades your look, making it more sophisticated, smart and elegant. To get the most bang from your buck, look for a black one one that emphasizes your waist and lengthens your form for a flattering and versatile buy.
Rather than trendy and of-the-moment, think of a timeless design. Look for one with clean lines, a functional design and luxe details—it should look expensive, event if it's not. The neutral tones on this exquisite bag work all year around and pair with anything.
Not only will this classic shoe silhouette never go out of style, it also works in every type of setting, including uppity professional ones. This summer, show off your hard earned strut in snakeskin embossed texture, giving even the most sexy stiletto a run for its money.
Whether your look is more classic and you favor a sleek blazer silhouette or edgy and you prefer a cool moto style, every woman should own at least one leather jacket. Likewise, black isn't the only go-to color when it comes to leather toppers. For summer, consider an earthy tone that pairs nicely with neutrals and prints.
There is nothing basic about these blues. If you only own one pair of jeans, the wash should be dark as they tend to be the most flattering, versatile and sophisticated from the bunch. Look for a pair that come in a lightweight fabric so that you can wear them all year-round.
