Nude pumps have a long shelf life. They can be worn year after year to work, cocktail parties, and formal events. Their neutral tone makes them wearable and pair able with virtually any color, pattern, or print.

A structured blazer showcases your curves will covering you up! Perfect to wear to the office, with tanks and tees, and even on top of a fitted sheath dress; a well fitted blazer never goes out of style. A basic black blazer is a must when it comes to what’s hanging in your closet. Other top tones are navy, red, beige, and grey! Be sure to select a style that has basic buttons and no other embellishments so it will never become dated.
Silk scarves have been spotted on some of the most iconic women in the fashion world throughout the entire century. Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O, and Sophia Loren (to name a few) have all tied on a silky scarf to help them achieve an instantly posh and polished look. If it has worked for them, it can certainly work for you! Pick up a medium to long silk scarf in a solid or playful print. Consider adding it to you casual attire-a tank and jeans; or formal ensembles-a fit and flare dress with heels. Scarves are versatile enough to tie in your hair, or even around the handle of your tote so stock up on these timeless accessories.
Fit and flare jeans make women feel sexy! They help you put some extra pep in your step and complement a variety of figures. Select a dark wash shade, which has shown to be the most classic finish on jeans, and get ready to work it on a romantic evening out, at brunch with the ladies, or even as you spend time around your house with the family.
A little black dress will always be useful. It can be worn to life’s formal events like a wedding, funeral, anniversary party, or class reunion. It can be worn to work, dressed up with a silk scarf and pumps; or even dressed down and given a little edge by slipping on a fitted leather jacket or a pair of ballet flats. It can be accessorized in numerous ways, and will never get old! Consider purchasing an A-line silhouette to ensure an always flattering fit and a scoop neckline, which is also a traditional design element.
Once you have some of the big basics for your wardrobe, you never have to worry about looking stylish or appropriate. Each of these items is a must when it comes to dressing casually or formally and will sit in your closet for years to come, making your initial investment completely worthwhile!
