The times are changing seemingly faster than ever these days. The advent of social media and internet fashion icons lend us the feeling that the world is in a state of ever-changing flux, especially when it comes to fashion. Your wardrobe last year is probably much different from the wardrobe you’ll desire to own this year. It’s not easy to keep on top of modern fashion trends, but as a lady who’d like to stay current, it can feel hard to resist the beautiful style fads that come around every month.

However, as a modern woman, some simple wardrobe staples will never go out of fashion and have many practical uses. If you’d like to look stylish, professional or homely, all of those looks can naturally be achieved with the following items.

Shoes (All Kinds)

Wearing an array of comfortable, stylish shoes is a must have, but what you wear largely depends on where you live and the season you’re in. Most women have a natural predisposition to great looking shoes, just like men have a predisposition to sports sneakers. Luckily, those two have combined, and now large footwear manufacturers like Adidas and Nike are converting their product lines into beautiful feminine interpretations that can keep us looking great but feeling practical at the same time.

As a modern woman, you’re likely to need a functioning pair of trainers, some light sandals, some ‘going-out’ shoes, be they high heels or otherwise, and a pair of shoes you’d be happy to wear to a formal event. Those four shoe staples will see you well through any circumstance, and you can upgrade them appropriately as those go out of fashion or experience wear and tear.

Light Cardigans

Cardigans are among some of the most versatile garments you can wear. They fit great as a light coating in beautiful weather, but can also pad your undergarments during the winter. Stock your wardrobe with a range of variant thick cotton cardigans in different colors, and you’ll forever be finding practical uses for them. They can also help you blend a modern, city going outfit into that of a city/rustic hybrid, which looks beautiful and keeps you current.

Blazer

Any professional woman owes it to herself to have at least one or two blazers in her collection. Not only will this serve her well at work while advancing the career ladder like a corporate warrior to be feared and respected, but it will also serve her well during formal personal events. A well-tailored blazer can make any woman look amazing, equal parts professional and stylish.

Dresses For All Occasions

You need dresses for all seasons and occasions. Some women don’t think they look good in dresses and prefer to wear relatively practical clothes. That’s completely fine, and it’s not up to us to tell you what you should be wearing and what you should feel confident in. However, if you believe that you and dresses don’t go together well, we’d argue you haven’t found the right dress.

From playsuits to maxi dresses, there are many styles that constitute the word ‘dress.’ You’ll be sure to find one you like if you just search around, and if you’re not sure, why not hire a stylist to help you? You never know how amazing you can feel when you finally find a look and style that works well for you.

Jewelry

Every girl loves jewelry, but the extent of what they wear differs from person to person. No matter if you enjoy long dangling earrings, or having eight piercings in one ear, find what works for you and rock it! Accessories like jewelry can help complete a style, and tastefully applied, can do wonders for your self-esteem and self-expression.

If you’re not sure where to start and haven’t worn jewelry apart from maybe ear studs and a wedding band, why not start off simple with a new gold watch? It’s likely that it’ll never leave your wrist once you place it on.

Hats

Hats don’t seem to have as much cultural uniformity as they once did. It’s easy to think back to Victorian England, where hats were considered a style must-have and helped present your station or understanding to those around you in the society.

Why not bring stylish hats back to your wardrobe? Opting for a large brim summer hat can help you feel amazing during formal events, and can lend you a sense of style and class that’s unshakable even if you’re already on your fourth glass of wine.

The particulars of each woman’s wardrobe are down to her personal taste, and this is the way it should be. However you like to dress though, filling your wardrobe with a few items of each previous suggestion will give you a robust place to start from, and help you interchange outfits at will.
