It’s here… Adulthood. And the time and energy to “run to the mall” whenever you have to have something SPECTACULAR to wear (first date, wedding of ex-boyfriend, brunch to meet his mom, etc.) is long gone.
My grandmother used to say, “Prior planning prevents poor performance.” So, let’s get prepared by having amazing items in your closet that are ready to take any outfit to the next level.
Here are five categories of clothes every woman should have in some jaw-dropping colors, fabrics, prints, and textures. It might be time to go shopping. 😉
A nice blazer will make sure that you don’t overwhelm a room with a full suit when the occasion doesn’t call for it. But it can also separate you from the crowd a bit.
An often overlooked item as a potential statement-maker, to me a belt calls attention to all that is feminine in a woman. Outlining and defining the waist, you instantly look polished and put-together, so cinch it up!
Quality dress shoes are always worth the investment. Make sure that you’re set for the next decade by doing some research, and get some basic yet bulletproof shoes that you can wear with your suits.
Whether it’s a necklace, bracelets, or earrings, jewelry has the power to add that finishing touch on any outfit. Harkening back to ancient Egyptians, jewelry has always been an important part of human cultures, serving status and hierarchical purposes in addition to adding to the beauty of a woman. Don’t wait until that “occasion” looms… Add to and update your jewelry wardrobe constantly with both fine and everyday pieces.
Whether it is the book-bag from our school-days or a carry-all tote for shopping, handbags are crucial in a woman’s life. In today’s go-go pace of modern life, purses still play a vital roles in our lives – functional, decorative, envy-stirring, or statement-making. When a single piece can accentuate and elevate the entire look of an ensemble, grab it and hold on tight!
