Wardrobe Staples for Every WomanNovember 24th, 2013 by David
The little black dress – This is the definitive wardrobe staple. The ‘LBD’ serves to flatter and lift in more ways than one. The ultimate little black dress is wearable to a dinner party, a lunch date or even an important work meeting. Accessorise to tailor according to the occasion. Of course there is always room for another black dress in a wardrobe – so having a casual and formal version of this classic is a fashion-forward move.
The perfect pair of jeans – Finding the perfect pair of jeans can be a challenge, so here’s a quick few tips. For athletic, slender frames flared and ‘boyfriend’ cuts flatter and add shape and volume. Fading on the thigh area of the denim creates more of a feminine curve. If you are looking for a pair of jeans to slim down your physique opt for higher waist pairs which elongate and create a more streamline silhouette. For more ‘apple’ shapes, a straight leg works best. For tall, slim shapes opt for slightly cut off jeans with a stylish turn-up at the end. Wide legs with a fitted waist are fantastic for creating feminine shape for those with more of a boyish figure.
The crisp white blouse – A white blouse contributes an effortlessly chic touch to any look. Pair it with fitted jeans and flats for a laid-back yet put-together weekend look. Wear with denim shorts to balance the overall style or with a pencil skirt and statement shoes for a glamorous yet professional edge.
The nude coloured court shoe – These elongate legs and flatter any look. They help smarten jeans, and complement any dress or skirt – every colour works with nude.
The plain white T-shirt – A well fitted, high quality white T-shirt will be your go-to garment for years! Wear it with a blazer, tucked into a high waist skirt or trousers, with shorts, with jeans… Endless possibilities! A scoop neck ‘T’ flatters most figures.
The ballet flats – These are the chicest forms of comfortable footwear money can buy! Take Audrey
Hepburn’s lead and invest in a perfect pair of pumps. Black or nude colours work with any outfit. Pumps make a dress cuter and more casual and a pair of jeans more feminine: the only way to dress your feet in both comfort and style.
The black cardigan – A fitted black cardigan has the ability to dress any outfit ‘up.’ The timeless style and effortless elegance of a black cardigan accented with beautiful buttons is undeniable. For more slender shapes, go for a cut off cardigan that finishes just above the waist for a more feminine appeal. Long cardigans serve to elongate a torso, and belted black cardigans accentuate womanly curves. Wear over a white blouse or T-shirt, with jeans or a dress.
