Looking to update that out-of-date wardrobe? You’re not alone. Every year we look to upgrade our practical pieces. But there are several must-haves that update and invigorate a humdrum wardrobe.
WHITE BUTTON-DOWN SHIRT – a white shirt is fashion’s most dominant aesthetic. You can wear the white button-down with just about anything. For a powerful corporate look, wear slightly fitted, to accentuate your curves while still looking professional; or tucked into dress slacks and paired with a peplum blazer is great for the office. Wear with jeans, not tucked in, with a pair of ballerina flats or trendy heels is good for a casual weekend day. But nothing beats the look of casual sophistication than a pair of boot-cut jeans with a white button-up shirt.
CARDIGAN -- Neutral shades offer you the most versatility. Replace a blazer with a cardigan at the office or a Sunday brunch for a slightly more feminine look. It will always soften the look. Add a belt and you set the stage for a more polished corporate look. Wear a cardigan with jeans and a tank, and you’ll have a more casual look. Lightweight fabrics are the best choices because it can span multiple seasons.
PERFECT DARK WASH JEANS -- Denim jeans was one of the best inventions of the century. Jeans are the most widely worn and have a place in everyone’s wardrobe, no matter the age or weight. Finding yourself a bit heavy on the hips? You should choose jeans with a wider leg as they will be more flattering to your figure. For petite ladies, choose jeans that are long with straight legs; pair with heels and this look will suit you the most. Tall and slender? Lucky you! you can wear almost any style whether boot cut or skinny jeans. Boot cut jeans will flatter any shape because they can balance out wider hips and lengthen the legs.
SHOES -- An ugly pair of footwear can spoil your complete look, while a smart stylish pair of shoes can totally make a statement. When you shop for your shoes make sure that you select something versatile and comfortable. Sure, the trendy statement to make is “beauty hurts” however bunions and beauty don’t make a beautiful match.
