No matter the time of year, you must have a few wardrobe staples in your closet. Wardrobe staples are clothing items, footwear, and accessories that you rely on all year long to keep your style game strong. Still, you’ve skimmed through Vogue and are at a loss as to what ‘fashion must-haves’ even are. If that sounds like you, no worries. Here we break down the five essentials you need in your closet.
1. Warm And Cozy Sweaters
We can’t say the ’80s did a lot of good with fashion, but they did one thing right: chunky sweaters. It’s genius. Warm and cozy sweaters are probably one of if not the most comfortable tops you can wear. And guess what? Women wear them to work, to their parent’s anniversary parties, and as warm pajama tops in the winter.
These sweaters are versatile and aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. They’re too good to pass up. If you don’t like chunky sweaters, pretty much any sweaters for women will do. The magic behind this fashion trend is that it combines comfort with style, so the look keeps coming back! Who wouldn’t want to be as cozy as possible while still looking put together?
You really can’t do sweaters wrong. As long as you feel cozy and warm, you’re showing off a self-care style that will have everyone in awe of your look. Sweaters are the perfect way to elevate your look year-long and can be layered or worn on their own.
2. Lightweight Military Jackets
We don’t mean the kind that the soldiers wear- we mean the ones inspired by those uniforms. Your lightweight army green or navy blue military jacket is an absolute wardrobe staple. Not only is it light enough to wear comfortably in almost every kind of weather (okay, maybe not on scorching summer days), but it is also the PERFECT mix of fancy and casual.
You can pair these jackets with jeans or formal slacks. Look for jackets with personality sewn in: we’re talking colorful buttons, lace and patches lining the elbows, and other touches of style that make your military jacket different from the others.
3. Soft Suede Belts
For a splash of 70’s aesthetic, you can’t go wrong with a soft suede belt. Whether you choose one in a neutral shade or something a bit groovier, like moody blue or yellow, your accessory adds just enough pizzazz to set the tone for the rest of your outfit. Pair these belts with jeans any time of the year, and you are golden.
4. Blue Jeans Forever
Jeans are never going out of style. They are the most practical, durable, and stylish pair of pants anyone can own. The cheapest pair can look like they were purchased off designer shelves, and you can even look amazing if they have holes in them. What CAN’T jeans do? We recommend stocking up on your favorite pairs to last you all year long. Who are we kidding, though? Jeans will last you longer than a year. They’re the best!
5. Form-fitting Black Camisole
As an undershirt for your blazer, cardigan, or flannel, you need something simple and elegant. This is where form-fitting black camisoles come in. Choose from various options, including bodysuits, lace-lined V-necks, and halters to keep your style on-point. Camisoles go with everything, and so does the color black. Put the two together, and you’ve got a dream combination.
