Any article of clothing that’s flattering and multi-purpose is worth investing in. Keeping yourself fashion-forward and trendy without splurging on new fashion pieces is indeed a wise decision. Looking for smart buys to keep your look stylish and you won’t regret buying? Keep on reading to get some cues from our list.
- White T-shirt
White t-shirts are basic essentials that are often taken as granted. When opting for white t-shirts, better go for ones that are high-quality and you know that will last for a lifetime since they do make everything look better. Instead of just wearing your plain t-shirt with your casual blue jeans, try to dress them up with a pair of printed shorts or even a sequin skirt. Also, pick the most flattering neckline for you as women with longer necks look better in a round-neck t-shirt over V-necks that would only visually make their necks longer. When yellow stains start to appear on your shirt, or it doesn’t look pristine white, then it’s time to buy a new t-shirt for your chic style.
- Tank Top
Ideal for working out, dates, and wearing to bed, these casual tanks should be your off-duty mainstay. For a date night outfit, wear your tank top with a flirty skirt in feminine colors or an elegant skirt with gold trims making you look unexpectedly glamorous and ladylike. Tired of wearing your button-down shirt for your office outfit? Then trade them off to a plain tank top and polish your basic piece with a pair of chic straight leg pants and a sleeveless blazer like fashion blogger Jessica Ricks did. It’s best in neutral shades of black, white, or charcoal gray, but feel free to try all the colors.
A sweater is a basic in all the right ways. Whether it’s chunky or form-fitting, sweaters can make your looks stylish while keeping you warm in chilly seasons. Like fashion blogger Micah Gianneli, add some flair to your winter white outfit with a chunky sweater in puffy sleeves. Feel free to wear your knitted piece with your denim-on-denim outfit, architectural skirts, and even not-so-feminine outfits to add some cozy vibe to your looks.
- Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans are affordable, comfortable, and practical on everyone. Just go for styles that flatter your figure and shape. A high-waist style is great for petite and curvy women to make their legs appear visually longer, therefore, making them look taller and leaner. Blue skinny jeans are perfect for a casual street style, but for a more versatile look, opt for a white or black wash of denim that can be flattering to wear with your chic tops.
Tights are great for giving you more coverage especially when wearing shorts dresses, shorts, and mini skirts. Just opt for a great fit for where the waistband never digs into your sides or stomach. Black is the most versatile color you may go for, but shades of brown as well as nude can be good too. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, wear some tight with your leather shorts to give some fabric contrast to your outfit at the same time giving you more coverage when baring your legs is not an ideal thing for you.
- Classic Pumps
Classic pumps can take you from a casual-chic street style to corporate office style while giving you a great stature and elegance. Just look for a relatively reasonably priced designer pair of pointy-toe heels that you’ll wear for a lifetime. Kitten heels on your pair of pumps mean you can wear them for ages and walk miles without hurting your feet! Just go for classic shades of black, white, nude, gold, and even metallic silver to add some glam to your looks.
- Neutral-Colored Bags
Bags are one of the best accessories a woman can have. So, invest for one that has a classic structure and in neutral color to make it look fresh no matter how many times you wear them. Printed clutches and bags may look a bit trendy and fashion-forward, but they look too obvious to be worn over and over again. So better stick to structured bags in the neutral shades of black, white, gray, and brown that you can wear with any of your outfits.
Indeed, investing in the fashion staples that will last for a lifetime is one of the best style hacks every fashion-forward woman should know.
