10 Fashion Staples That Should Be In Your Wardrobe
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a fashionista in possession of clothes must require more clothes.
That may not be the correct version of the infamous Jane Austen quote, but it is still the truth that all our favorite fashion girls and boys agree with.
Why the wardrobe must-haves?
Everybody knows there are some things in life you cannot go without; good friends and family, your phone (this one mostly for millennia’s) and your pets, and even some Holy Grail fashion pieces in your wardrobe.
In this article today, we will discuss the things that are a must-have in your wardrobe. With these as a constant in your outfit of the day, trust me; your fashion game will be much better. Incorporating these handfuls of clothes, shoes, and accessories may just make you into a better man or woman.
The following paragraphs list the 10 vintage fashion items that will completely change how you looked at dressing up and discuss their importance in detail. Let’s begin.
1. A pair of flats:
Classic yet youthful, these are essential pieces to your everyday wardrobe. There’s very little that can go wrong with a couple of flats.
If you’re feeling Parisian one particular morning, just pop black flats on with some denim jeans and a black or pastel turtleneck, and you have found the answer.
They can also serve as the pop of color you need in an outfit. Feeling like your sundress is a little understated for the sunny picnic or barbecue, you plan on going to? Just pair it off with some brightly colored flats, for example wearing some bold red flats with a yellow dress can make you look like the bubbly fashionista you are, set out to conquer the world.
2. LBD (Little Black Dress)
Yet another classic is the famous little black dress. It is a timeless solution to many fashion fails. Have a night out at a work event and want to look elegant yet work-appropriate? Little Black dress. Have a date night where you’re too confused about what to wear but don’t have much time? Little Black dress.
Pair your favorite LBD off with some beautiful dangly earrings, heels and a cute clutch, and you’re all ready to go out and turn heads. This is an investment that will never disappoint you. With online stores like boohoo, you can get a wide selection of styles and sizes.
It may sound tacky, but kimonos are the best way to spice up a boring outfit. Get a kimono with vibrant color and pattern, and it can make even the dullest of outfits pop. If you’re at home wearing just jeans and a plain T-shirt, all you need to do is put on a kimono and some cute heels, and you’re ready to go to a party. If it’s good enough for Tan France from Queer Eye, it’s good enough for us. It’s the best solution when you’re feeling particularly lazy. Make lazy look good.
4. Wool Slippers:
Getting a pair of comfortable and ethically woven wool slippers will change your life. That is not even an exaggeration. They’re perfect to wear outside in winters when you want to look cool but also be warm. They’re comfortable and cozy, they’re warm, and they look stylish.
On top of all that, getting them from a store that creates fashion responsibly even picks off that weight over your heart. What more could you ask for? There are many stores out there that sell a wide variety of wool slippers, in several gorgeous colors.
5. A Long Coat:
At this point, I might sound like a broken record, but it is yet another classic and a timeless piece that you can keep wearing for years. With coats, you have so many options: belted, short, long, and so much more. A knee-length coat will taper your body and make you look taller and slimmer.
However, you do have to be a little careful when picking the perfect coat for yourself. Make sure to choose a coat that’s well fitted or else it will drown your whole look. Pair the coat with some swanky boots, and you’ll look regal but comfortable. Make sure to choose well-contrasting colors like a black coat on a red dress or vice versa. Try not to mix bright neon colors like blue and yellow together.
6. Sun Hat:
Your summertime look will become infinitely more fun if you add a chic sun hat to the outfit. Whether you’re going on a road trip in the summer or a picnic at a nearby park, it’s always appropriate. Go for a pretty, wide, and wavy brimmed hat. You can even spice it up by gluing flowers or dainty embellishments to the base of the hat. Wear it with a flowery sundress or a flowy shirt and some denim jeans.
7. Black Trousers:
These, like many things on this list, are multi-functional. Make sure to buy trousers that are well-tailored to your body.
You can wear these to a job interview or to a party. Matching it up with a buttoned-up white shirt and some sensible shoes it is very much work appropriate. But couple it off with a brightly colored top and heels and you’re good to go for a night out with friends.
8. Ankle Boots:
A great way to look edgy is to throw on a pair of black ankle boots. These will never go out of style, they are as much a staple as you can get in fashion. Ankle boots are especially cute with boyfriend jeans or ripped jeans. Even wearing them with dresses works, they’re such a well-rounded shoe.
If you’re going to a fancier place than throw on some snakeskin ankle boots with a neutral-colored outfit and let yourself shine. It’s hard to go wrong with boots.
9. Plain White Tee:
It’s a very versatile article of clothing. It would work great with many of the items on this list alone, items like the kimono, ankle boots, and black trousers. Putting on some accessories like a couple of gold chains will bring out the look even more.
10. Gold Accessories:
They don’t have to be real gold, just gold-colored. A dainty gold necklace and a few rings on the fingers give you the last boost you need to complete your look. Add hoops to all-black outfits, it can never go wrong.
The final word
Fashion means something different to everybody, but there are just some things you can never go wrong with. These 10 items are not expensive, on the contrary, they’re pretty cost-effective. It proves that looking good doesn’t need to have a thousand dollar price tag on it. Less is more.
