Women and shopping go hand in hand like strawberries and ice cream. That’s why many get confused when they hear women say that they have nothing to wear, yet their wardrobes are basically overflowing with clothes.
And while this phenomenon is certainly interesting, there’s a simple answer behind it. Those women who have luxury basic pieces in their wardrobe always have something to wear. Others, on the other hand, may find putting together an outfit more difficult than it needs to be.
So, to avoid never having something to wear, invest in some luxury wardrobe staples and exude confidence and style wherever you go.
Get that perfect tee
A flattering yet simple t-shirt is something every woman should have in her wardrobe. This staple piece will make a perfect layering item you can dress up or down as necessary. Color-wise, you should try to stick to white, black or gray as they are the easiest to combine. To make that the piece fits your style, you can play around a bit with the neckline and sleeve type. Also, make sure you really invest in this piece as a $2 t-shirt from Walmart won’t ever be able to create the same effect.
Find the right set of jewelry
Your jewelry is the next thing you need to pay attention to. Instead of accumulating a lot of cheap-looking knickknacks, invest in statement pieces that are well-made and of high-quality. These pieces should be chosen carefully to match your style and taste. When putting on jewelry for every occasion, make sure you limit your choice to three pieces in total, to avoid looking cheap and tacky.
Have a go-to blazer
A good blazer or cardigan will make all the difference in choosing your outfit. When purchasing a blazer, try to go for a style that can complement both dressier outfits as well as more every-day ones. Also, make sure that it’s flattering your figure but avoid going for pieces that are too tight or tailored in. When it comes to color, again try to keep things in the neutral spectrum, as you want to be able to combine your blazer with virtually anything.
And a pair of high-waisted pants
High-waisted pants are another staple every woman needs to have in her wardrobe. Paired with a statement heel and a luxurious handbag, they can look very elegant. However, if you dress them down with some white sneakers and your favorite t-shirt, they will easily fit your everyday aesthetics. No matter if you go for black pants or a pair of high-waisted jeans, you’ll be sure to look like a million bucks. Alternatively, if you feel like splurging – get both!
Accessorize with the right heels and bag
Finally, handbags and shoes are those accessory pieces you should never buy for cheap. Cheap shoes will not only last shorter but, more often than not, they can be very uncomfortable. So, to avoid contributing to fast fashion, look for well-made quality footwear. An open-toe shoe, some nice pumps and a pair of luxurious booties will be enough to cover you year-round. When handbags are concerned, the same rules apply – for the most part. If you feel like investing in a bold handbag, you should actually buy a cheap one in the color and style you’re considering. This way, you’ll be able to assess how often you actually end up reaching for it before you invest in a real luxury piece. Of course, to avoid contributing to the ever-growing landfills, donate your cheap bags once you’ve replaced them with the ones that are lux.
All of this is not to say that you should only have these items in your wardrobe. Of course, you want to have a trusted pair of black leggings for when you just want to be casual and comfy. But, if you add these statement pieces to your wardrobe, you will always have something to wear.
