Fit for a Lady: How to Build an Elegant Wardrobe
We all love the relaxed, effortless look of jeans and slouchy tees, but as you grow older, there are inevitably more occasions when your casual uniform just won’t cut it. If you find yourself standing in front of your closet before every outing trying to find something appropriate to wear, it’s time to invest in some polished pieces.
Read on to find out how to curate a wardrobe that oozes class and elegance.
Silky Smooth Shirt
Take a step up from your chambray shirt to a beautiful silk shirt. Whether you want to show off your feminine side with a pussy bow or look sharp in a button-up, there’s a design that’s right for you. It’ll go equally well with a pencil skirt for the office or with high-waisted skinny jeans on the weekend. Once you feel the luxurious fabric on your skin, you’ll never want to go back.
An immaculately tailored blazer is the ultimate sartorial investment piece. A classic garment in its own right, make sure to invest in getting all of the details—buttons, lapels, pockets—right, and you’ll treasure it for decades. Wear it with patterned trousers and kitten heels to the office, or throw it on over a dress to add a menswear vibe to a girly staple.
A full-length dress isn’t something you wear every day, but take the time to find the one you truly love that fits perfectly for when you do need one. Nothing is worse than scrambling to find a decent dress after receiving a last-minute invitation to a formal party or gala. Over time, you can build up your accessories, collection of shoes, jewelry and clutches so that you can re-wear your dress with different styling.
Just like Rome wasn’t built in a day, your perfect wardrobe won’t be either. Invest in these sophisticated pieces and in due time, you’ll be the epitome of elegance.
