Hey guys! I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year. Can you believe it’s February already? This week starts New York Fashion Week, which I’m very excited about. Today I want to briefly discuss some stylish pieces every Diva should own in their closet. What I’ve learned so far in my four years of blogging about fashion is that trends seem to come and go for various reasons. Fashion is constantly changing, people are changing and variety is much desired just to name a few.
I’m not one to keep up with trends, as I love to create my own unique style with fashion. I feel like fashion should be fun and playful based on you! When it comes to choosing pieces for your wardrobe, you should always start out with the basic essentials. What I mean by basic essentials are key pieces that will help bring your outfits together like magic. The basics will not only help bring your outfit together, but will always be in style forever. Here are my suggestions of six stylish pieces you should definitely invest your funds in.
A Pair of Denim Jeans
Any pair, color, and type of denim jeans of your choice would do. However, I highly recommend investing in a pair of dark wash denim jeans as it will look great with everything. Jeans will absolutely never go out of style as it can be dressed up or down depending on your mood.
The classic camel coat
Something I definitely recommend investing in, especially for those cold winter months. A classic camel coat gives off both an elegant and expensive look to any outfit. This is probably the only classic coat that I would consider to be timeless with its warm, rich color that goes perfectly with black, white and denim.
A good pair of knee boots
I can’t tell you guys how much I love knee boots! They go great with everything from skirts, dresses, tights and leggings. These boots are something that is worth investing in because not only are they’re stylish but they keep your feet nice and warm during the fall and winter months. When choosing a good pair of knee boots, I recommend opting for high-quality with a classic style.
A Statement Necklace
A statement necklace is such a great piece of jewelry to own and invest in because they are great conversation starters for any event. It glams up any outfit without it looking too much, but gives a focal point in what you’re wearing at the same time. Anyway you dress it, it’s a statement.
If you don’t own a leather jacket, you’re missing out on how wonderful this statement piece is. A leather jacket is a great piece for traditional dressing. I like to dress it with a chunky sweater, T-shirt or with jeans. No matter how you choose to dress up a leather jacket, this piece is so versatile. The downside is that it is on the bit of the pricey side, but trust me, it’s so worth the investment and it never goes out of style.
Little Black Dress
Last by certainly not least, the little black dress. Having a little black dress is something everyone should own because for one, it’s perfect for any occasion. Two, it never ever goes out of style as it appears to be timeless wardrobe essential no matter the time of season.
