8 Wardrobe Essentials That Need An Upgrade In 2017
The number of lists out there filled with basics every girl should have in her wardrobe is pretty high. Sure, basics are great, but can they really be stylish if they aren’t updated with the times? I’m not talking about a complete wardrobe overhaul here. There are just a handful of pieces you can buy, every few years, that will help you keep up with the trends and slay your #OOTD.
So before you continue wearing that same old white shirt you’ve had in your closet for the last 10 years, here are some pieces that are current and will keep your sartorial game on point.
We can all agree that a well-fitted pair of jeans in your closet is imperative. But instead of those seasonal ripped and overdone skinny jeans, how about getting a slightly flared pair. You’ll need to make sure they’re a bit longer and wear them with heels. And of course, they should be super snug around your behind.
We all have denim jackets and blazers in our wardrobes. But for a little over a year now, Varsity and bomber jackets have become staples. Whether it’s to travel in or just wear over your outfit, they’re seriously stylish and here to stay. More options here.
Every girl has a pair of classic black pumps in her shoe closet. But how long can you make those basic stilettos run? Change it up and add a pair of block-heeled black pumps to your wardrobe. You won’t regret it! More options here.
If a shirt can’t multitask, what good is it anyway? Instead of investing in that perfect crisp white shirt, get one that can be worn as is, wrapped and tucked, and even worn as a jacket if needed. Now that’s what I call an essential!
The Longline Jacket
I know a jacket is considered to be a wardrobe essential, but in the last few years, we’ve seen everyone and their moms wear a longline vest or jacket, and I can’t name one person it hasn’t looked good on. It’s a great piece to layer with and it immediately adds so much more to your look. More options here.
The Tailored Trousers
Tailored trousers for the office are great. But tailored trousers to a cocktail party look even better. Get yourself a great fitting, straight cut or wide-leg pair, and you’ll never go wrong!
We stuck to sandals and ballets flats for almost too long. We all know the sneaker/plimsoll trend isn’t going anywhere, so why not keep it going? If you don’t already have one (or 12), here’s a pair that will match with pretty much anything! More options here.
The Little Black Dress
It’s a well-known fact that a little black dress is versatile to the max. But if you’re still trying to make good of the bubble-skirted, tube LBD you’ve had since you were a teenager, now is the time to stop! You’re looking for something more classic and chic, and it won’t hurt if it’s trendy too.
