Having a well put together sense of style often comes down to a few simple items. Sure, being aware of recent trends is nice if you want to keep with the crowd and avoid looking outdated, but anyone can have a perfect wardrobe simply by having the right essential pieces. Here are some fashion staples every woman should have in their closet in 2019.
A Nice Pair of Designer Sneakers
Who says you have to sacrifice style for comfort? One of the most refreshing trends in women’s wear is casual street fashion. Street fashion has the advantage of being less restrictive and allows you to express yourself. Companies like Balenciaga have hopped on the trend and have added a high-end twist to it.
Balenciaga sneakers are also some of the best looking in the designer sneaker space. They have classic cuts, high-performance futuristic silhouettes, and chunky “dad’ sneakers like the Triple S’s, which were literally everywhere in 2018. If you want to check their whole selection, you can check out online retailers like SSENSE. They also have a wide selection of classic Balenciaga sandals, boots and heels you can choose from as well.
A Versatile Dress
You should have one dress that can work no matter the occasion. Even if you’re not the dress type, there are times when you just can’t avoid it. And don’t stick with the cliché little black dress either.
Black dresses don’t work for everyone and there are plenty of colors you could choose that will be just as appropriate and work well on you. Just focus on the fit. You want something that will fit well and won’t be too revealing without looking drab. If you like black go for it, but you could go with pastel tones like lilac or an off-white dress if it looks good on you.
You should also add a nice pair of ballet flats for the occasion. Ballet flats are the perfect combination of chic and comfort. Heels aren’t an obligation these days and can even look over the top in some professional circles. Ballet flats are very versatile as well. You can pair them with a nice pair of denim and a white button up, and transition to a cocktail dress later at night without skipping a beat.
An Elegant Blazer
Blazers are also very versatile and can work very well in many situations. They can make almost anything look more professional and are a perfect go-to item if you want to pull off an office look. They can also make a great substitute if you’re looking for something that will keep you warm during chilly nights, but not chilly enough for a coat. The right blazer can also look stunning over a cocktail dress.
A Nice Comfortable Pair of Denim
We would like to put emphasis on the word “comfortable” there. You’re not trying to impress anyone here; everyone should have a pair of denim they will feel comfortable in on any day of the week. A nice pair of relaxed denim can look great rolled up with a t-shirt and button-up shirt combination, a pair of shades and a nice hat. There are some days when you just don’t feel like putting a style together, and these can be your go-to when you just want to put something on and get things done.
Properly Fitting Pants
As much as we all like comfort, there are times, however, that demand for something more formal. You should also make sure that you have a pair of properly fitting pants for these occasions. You should have a pair you can always go to if you have a special event or a meeting. You’ll be able to look presentable and polished, and still be able to get down to business.
A High-Quality White T-Shirt
I know a lot of people won’t see the utility of paying $50 or more for a simple white tee, but this is really an investment you’ll be glad to make.
Just like anything, you get what you pay for when buying a t-shirt, and a $50 tee will look better than a cheap one over the long run. A cheap white tee will have disintegrated or lost its shape much faster than your $50 one. A white t-shirt will look great with almost anything, whether it is pants, jeans or a skirt, so this should definitely be part of every woman’s wardrobe and could be a lifesaver when you have nothing else or don’t know what to wear.
These few simple staples should help you start putting together a nice little closet for yourself. Make sure that you let your imagination run free and complete these staples with pieces that represent you if you want to create your own unique style.
