As the new year revs up its engine, a closet clean out might be on the horizon. It’s time to toss out old trends and welcome new ones.
However, be sure you don’t toss out these top 7 basics essential to your closet. These pieces are timeless, classic and sure to never go out of style.
The trench coat is a classic piece that is a must for your wardrobe. It has the power to make any outfit look chic, polished, tailored and put together. Made famous during World War One worn by Army officers the trench coat has been a fashion staple ever since. I love this piece paired with a skinny jean and turtleneck as an ode to Katharine Hepburn.
Perfect over a dress for a night out or back to slacks for the office the black blazer is a piece that you definitely want to hold on to. I love it with a skinny pant and white tank for a more amped up casual look. Of course, you may have to update the style of the blazer as time goes on however always keep one present and it’s a fabulous basic to throw on with literally anything.
Crisp White Shirt
Making its way onto the fashion radar in the 1920s, the white blouse has never made its way out of the fashion scene and for a good reason. It’s a staple that looks so put together for numerous occasions. Whether you’re hitting the Farmers Market on a Saturday or facilitating a board meeting, the crisp white button-up blouse is a staple that is effortless yet so chic.
Calvin Klein ads come to mind when I think of just how amazing a great blue jean can look, and it is a definite for your wardrobe. They have been around for decades and embraced by both men and women. A good fit and wash is critical so be sure you hold onto jeans that aren’t too trendy for instance ripped, patched, colored or embellished.
They are so timeless and beautiful. Pearls can be paired with a little black dress or even layered with a jean and sweater look. Our grandmothers wore them, and they have been passed down from generation to generation due to their beauty and feminine charm. Invest in a pair, and you will have them forever and be able to pass them down to future generations.
Multipurpose totes are a win for any closet. They elevate any outfit and can turn any ensemble into a tailored, smart look. Michael Kors offers beautiful totes great for throwing on with a suit or even a pair of jeans and flats.
The nude pump is a great little item to trick the eye and make your legs look longer and leaner. It also compliments literally any colored outfit you have in your closet. On the higher end splurge for red-soled Christian Louboutins. They will last you forever, and of course, every gal should have a pair. Nude pumps are the new black pump, and you won’t regret keeping these around.
Invest in these staple pieces, and they will go far in your wardrobe. Spend that extra cash to really seek out quality, well-fitted apparel so it will transcend time and wear. Toss out those fleeting trends from seasons past and hold onto these timeless pieces.
