“I have nothing to wear” is the seasonal catch phrase of every woman when she opens her closet. Understandably and unarguably we agree that keeping up with the trends is not feasible all the time. And even if we are in tune with the trends, in no time our closet is filled with last season throw-away’s. We have a knack of feeling challenged by fashion most of the time.
Most women have been in this harrowing scenario. Being presentable whether you go for a meeting or to college, maintaining a class is a must. There are some classic items which not only make up for the essentiality but never fade or go out of style.
I will showcase some classic pieces and items that will suit all body types and will form the base of your wardrobe.
Jeans are the saving grace ever since and it lasts forever. The more you wash it and the older it gets, the better it becomes. There are ill fitting jeans that can make you rather clumsy, but finding the right fit can be a challenge and fulfilling at the same time. You can never go wrong with a classic pair of stone washed jeans. Straight legged pair has been in style forever so have a pair of those in your wardrobe. If you want to pair your jeans with heels then you can opt for a pair with longer inseams or if you want to pair them with flats, you can go for those with shorter inseams.
Jackie Cardigan or Shrug
Many women swear by it. The cardigan is a must have in your wardrobe. It is an all-purpose use; you can use it to combat sudden exposure to cold weather or to just jazz up your style. You could also wear over low cut blouses if you aren’t too comfortable. I would suggest you to keep as many colored cardigans or shrugs as possible. Suitable for any occasion and you can easily stash them away in your handbags as well.
The boyfriend blazer can be worn and layered over anything. It looks cool with almost every piece of clothing. Wear it over blouses paired with shorts, denims and trousers, with dresses during a date night, with maxi dresses or even jumpsuits. They give a unique class with its smart fit and add to the comfort. It makes your whole look more polished and sleek.

You can even buy them in bulk and believe me, you will never outgrow of them. And you can wear it on different occasions and still look updated. You can blend them with casual footwear when you are out for a cool brunch or play up with heels and super skinny jeans when you want to play dressy
A great Pair of Sunglasses
Invest in a good pair of sunglasses. No one needs a sermon on the essentialities of a sunglass now so we won’t get into that. But one can’t deny the glamorous element that a sunglass can bring on. It brings vibrancy to your whole outfit that you are toning. Even in your most laidback days, a sunglass can definitely play up a lot with your outfit. It brings up the glamour quotient.
