It’s about that time to dissect your closet and decide which items are meant to keep, toss or donate. Once or twice a year, you should visit your closet and remove pieces that no longer serve it’s purpose while making room for pieces that are far more versatile, classy, solid and investments. We have come up with a list of 10 Must Have’s for the Modern Woman in 2015. View this list and see if you are on the right track.
01. BLACK BLAZER
A Black Blazer is a staple piece that should be in every woman’s closet. A simple black blazer can easily add class and sophistication to your attire. Imagine getting invited to a last minute dinner but you are wearing a t-shirt and jeans, throw on a black blazer with your comfortable pair of heels and wah-la. Outfit complete.
02. WINTER COAT
For obvious reasons a Winter Coat is a necessity but while shopping for a Winter Coat, think along the lines of long term. Choose solid colors over loud patterns. Choose longer lengths over waist coats. And opt for heavier versatile material or 2 in 1’s over trendy items. Once you invest in a nice winter coat, you will notice the amount of wear as well as the longevity in it’s existence.
03. STATEMENT PIECE JEWELRY
You see how that necklace paired with a simple dress made the dress pop? For that reason alone, you need to add one to your collection. For those “I have nothing to wear nights” you can easily slip on your favorite little black dress accompanied by your statement necklace for a pop of color, shine and a conversation starter. Pick one up today and thank me later.
04. EVENING CLUTCH
Because we are tired of seeing you beautiful ladies walking around the event in your fabulous dress wearing an overnight bag on your arm. Your handbag should never weigh more than you or look too painful to carry. Simplify your evening attire as well as your life with a nice black evening clutch. If you can afford to purchase multiple then by all means do so.
05. SIGNATURE FRAGRANCE
Ever been complimented on your scent? How good did that make you feel? Made you want to go out and stock up on that particular fragrance right? At least that’s how it is for me. There are some fragrances that just don’t mesh well with your original body scent and there are some that intensify to the next level. Visit your nearest Sephora, spend a day testing out scents and ask for sample bottle sizes of your favorites. Once you find the one that works for you make the investment or add it to your birthday want list.
06. FITNESS SNEAKERS
Come on girl, it’s 2015. By now you have found a work-out routine and schedule that fits into your busy lifestyle. If you include a minimum of 20 minute workouts daily, a one mile run every other day or a nice hard core bootcamp regimen weekly, you are on the right path. Find a pair of comfortable, durable sneakers that are solid colors to match no matter your attire (cute or grungy) but more importantly that will last throughout the change of the seasons.
07. RED LIPSTICK
Because you are worth it. Need I say more?
08. NUDE LIPSTICK
For the days and nights you prefer to play it safe or wear minimal makeup. We all have those days.
09. LITTLE BLACK DRESS
I’m sure you have more than one and I am also sure you are tired of seeing this LBD on every single Fashion Must Have list but when I tell you it comes in handy, I mean it. I attend a lot of events throughout the year and nothing carries me on more than my little black dress(es). I can accessorize my LBD so many different ways, 9 times out of 10 you never really know it is the same dress. The perfect LBD can be worn with flats, heels, a statement necklace, a vest, a nice winter coat, sneakers and many other dressed up or dressed down accessories you own.
10. BATHING SUIT
Because we no longer wear t-shirts to the pool. Find a simple bathing suit that you are comfortable wearing without a cover-up. A one-piece or a bikini set is totally based on preference. Just make sure you visit a store to purchase your summer time fine piece and don’t depend on online boutiques for many reasons. The only exception is if you are 100% sure and honest about your size.
HOW MANY PIECES DO YOU OWN?
