Invest Only in Essentials
Every woman needs a handful of essential pieces in her wardrobe. Invest in quality in these pieces and you won't need to spend too much on the trendy items you'll use to compliment the essentials. Tim Gunn says there are 10 essential items that need to be in every woman's closet. They include:
- A black dress - The little black dress is the key to a stylish woman's wardrobe. Audrey Hepburn made it popular and taught us that a simple black dress can steal the show. Invest in one that fits perfectly and looks great - one you can wear to a business dinner or a party.
- A white shirt - For a casual look, pair this with jeans, underneath a sweater or a suit. A white shirt is an essential layering item.
- A great pair of jeans - A good pair of jeans is hard to find. When you do find a pair you're happy with, consider their versatility. The ideal pair will be casual enough for the park on weekends, and work well with a trendy top and heels at a club.
- Black heels - A good pair of medium height black heels is a must. Choose a pair that will go with anything from a dress to jeans.
