5 Key Classic Wardrobe Must-Haves
By Carmen Ordonez
With the start of the New Year, there’s nothing better than starting off with an organized closet (and getting rid of clothes you do not wear anymore). But as much as trends come and go, there are always those classic staples that seem to stand the test of time. Here are 5 key pieces that every woman should have in her wardrobe.
Leather Jacket: A leather jacket in a neutral color such as black or brown never goes out of style. It can also be dressed up or down, from jeans and a t-shirt for a casual look, to pairing it with a cocktail dress (like this sequined dress from David’s Bridal) for an evening look.
Jeans: Since their start in 1873, jeans have become a classic must-have for all women. Look for jeans in a dark wash and a cut that flatters your body type. A boot-cut jean for example is a style that goes great with several body types.
White Button-Down Shirt: I love a great white-button down shirt. You can wear it an endless amount of ways and regardless of your age, it never goes out of style. It’s also the perfect canvas for you to accessorize however you want, such as pairing it with this Two-Row Shell Pearl Necklace from David’s Bridal.
LBD “Little Black Dress”: It really doesn’t get much more classic than the little black dress. Look for a black dress in a simple, yet elegant cut that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. This lace cap sleeve black dress from David’s Bridal is the perfect choice!
Cardigan Sweater: A cardigan is another versatile piece that can be combined in so many ways, from jeans to a dress. An animal print cardigan is also a great option to add a modern twist to this classic piece.
As you can see, the key with several of these pieces is to look for neutral colors such as black, brown and dark blue, since they can be combined with several colors. With these key pieces you’ll be on your way to having a versatile closet. You’ll also save money since you’ll have pieces for many years to come.
