Essential staples for every woman’s wardrobe

Hello Friends
Being chic isn't about having the most expensive handbag or wearing the latest trend. It's about being true to who you really are and feeling comfortable in your own skin. Real style comes from within. It is having the confidence to get organized, being a ruthless editor and trusting your own creativity. If you feel great, then you'll look great - whether your outfit cost $100 or $1000. Ultimately, be true to yourself

There’s nothing that complements an evening dress as well as an understated, equally sophisticated wrap. And while a silk-and-cashmere shawl is no substitute for a parka, it will keep you warm when your exposure to the elements is limited to quick jaunts to and from the car—and it will go just as capably with more casual attire, like jeans

Evening Clutch
While a daytime bag feels a bit cumbersome during evening festivities, you still need an option for nighttime that’s big enough to hold your essentials. e.g your cell phone, cash, keys, and lipstick (yes, an essential). Try and find one with a stowaway chain strap for those times when you’d prefer to have your purse hanging from your wrist or shoulder—making it much easier to hang on to your cocktail. When this piece is not in use, store in a soft cloth shoe-bag

Little Black Dress
A black dress is synonymous with chic, sophisticated style. The dress should not be tight, but skim your curves. The most flattering length (and most versatile) is either right above the knee or right below it. A kick pleat in the back adds panache and the ability to walk effortlessly. The right accessory, whether it’s a string of pearls or patent-leather flats, will make the dress appropriate for black tie or something slightly less formal

Black Suit
In the business world, a perfectly tailored black suit is a fail-safe gold standard. But it has appeal beyond the workplace: When you show up anywhere dressed in a well-fitted jacket and skirt, you look proper, polished, and modern. That’s why it is important to invest in the best-constructed suit you can afford, even if it means spending more than usual. Not only will you rely on this fashion overachiever as an ensemble but you can also really get your money’s worth by wearing the skirt and the jacket as separates

Black Pumps
This perennial fashion favourite has withstood the test of time because it is the go-to shoe for day or night, jeans or trousers or skirts, dressy occasions or more casual events. Whether perfectly plain or adorned with a subtle pattern, a pair of black pumps adds polish to any outfit

French-Cuff Dress Shirt
Nothing elevates a pair of trousers, a skirt, or a suit like a classic French-cuff dress shirt. The simple upgrade of the cuffs adds elegance to an otherwise ordinary shirt and helps create a look that will feel as appropriate for pitching a new client as it does for hosting a casual Sunday brunch

Black pants
A sleek pair of black trousers with a flattering fit not only transcends trends, it is a master of multitasking. Black pants are one of the few wardrobe staples that you can wear with just about anything else in your closet. Look for a slim fit, making sure the hem falls just an inch or so above the floor. Theres nothing worse than pants that drag along the floor as you walk

Dark denim jeans
Everyone should have a pair of favorite jeans — you know, the kind of jeans that make you feel sexy, pulled together, and comfortable. These jeans should be current in style, and the cut should be one that flatters your best assets. The great news is that nowadays jean companies are making jeans to accommodate every body type. So figure out what your body type is, then pick the cut of your jeans accordingly. If you are only investing in one pair of jeans, go with dark denim. They are more slimming and more versatile. For a day look wear them with a cami, cardigan and flats. For a night look wear pumps, fancy top and a blazer

Leather day bag
A leather day bag in black or brown can take you through the week. The key is to go for a good quality leather that will last for years. The amount you spend is totally up to you. Never over fill your bag, as this will stress the lining, so clean out your bag weekly. Replace your bag before it looks to old and scruffy

Great fitting undergarments
The right undergarments make your clothes fit better and help to make you look thinner. Also the right fitting underwear offers a seamless look under your clothes. Select skin-tones for more variations of use such as trouser, denim or skirts. Quality is important, they should last, but not forever. When the elastic starts to give way its time to toss them

Every occasion coat

A timeless coat that will take you from season to season is a must in every womans wardrobe. A single breasted lined coat that hits mid-thigh is always a good buy. This classic style is flattering for both curvy and petite silhouettes. A mid-thigh hem is great with skirts, jeans and trousers. Try to avoid embellishments or decorative pockets. As far as color choice, keep it simple, don’t be tempted by all the candy colors that go in and out with the seasons. That’s what the scarves and gloves are for. Camel or Charcoal are good colours to buy. Black is good too, but if you own a pet you will be spending more time picking off pet hair than looking stylish

Designer sun glasses
Have at least one pair of designer sunglasses of good quality. There are many great brands to choose from such as Gucci, Prada, etc. Its important to only invest in good quality as they last and they protect you from harmful UV rays that are damaging to your eyes

Sexy Shoes That Can be Worn for at Least Five Hours
Maybe a strappy heel in a matte gold, or a matte metallic. These shoes will take your basic black dress from day to evening, make your work suit suddenly cocktail party-appropriate, and even jazz up jeans and a sparkly top for a night out on the town.
A contrast color like purple, red, or teal or even an animal print can often complement more pieces in your closet than a neutral
