For whatever reason, men aren’t held to the same high standard when it comes to what they wear as women. Women must put together a new look every day. Not everyone has an unlimited bank account that allows them to buy new clothing weekly. The good news is that you don’t have too. The pieces listed below are essentials that you, as a woman, can use to mix and match to create many different looks.
The Plain Black Dress
The simple black dress, preferably sleeveless, is a go-to for any season. You can refine it with a belt and long cardigan and heels for a day at the office. Or, remove the sweater, add a crop jacket, fishnets, a classic pendant necklace and open toe heels for a fun evening out with friends. The black is something every girl needs to feel sexy.
While your sweats may feel comfortable, they don’t do much to accentuate your curves. Even the most slender frame looks drab and uninviting wearing the classic sweats. Put those away, reserved for cleaning days only. On the other hand, if you want to get noticed, put on a pair of fitted denim jeans. Unbelievably, most are super comfortable while hugging every curve on your body. They are wonderful for parks and casual evenings out. pair them with a tee, sweater or button-down shirt to achieve different looks.
After a busy day at the office with many miles under your feet, you want to change into a soft comfortable shoe. Well, you can do one better. Shoes like comfortable flats come in a wide range of colors and styles making them a fantastic addition to your office attire. You can still wear your heels, but having a couple of pair of designer flats on hand gives you another option.
Black Dress Slacks
Just like the black dress is versatile, offering a variety of dressing options, so are the classic black dress slacks. They provide a sharp look for the office, ideal for business meetings at the office or after hours. They’re also a piece of clothing that you can dress up or dress down by changing out accessories.
For instance, a day at the office may include an oversized chiffon scarf in assorted colors, a V-neck sweater, the classic white handbag and closed white heels. Now, remove the scarf, replace it with a simple gold necklace, change out the bag for a small sparkly clutch and a pair of black shiny heels and you’re ready to paint the town.
The classic tee is something that every woman should have many of in their closet from which to choose. They are easy to wear and suitable for all seasons. Heading to the park or a football game, the tee shirt is perfect. A casual evening out with family and friends or an intense workout, once again the classic tee makes an entrance. It pairs well with denim jeans and casual skirts, capris, trousers, shorts, and leggings.
In most cases when you think hair accessories you may envision a formal affair such as a wedding. And, while dainty and elegant headpieces are all the rage for these types of ceremonies, hair accessories offer much more. You can use them for the office to complement your bun and achieve the perfect look. Get silly with friends at the lake or beach with butterfly clips and headbands or use a headscarf to add drama and mystique to your ensemble.
Thankfully, with a little imagination, you can use staples in your closet to achieve several different looks that allow you to transition from day to night flawlessly.
