One of the first things that will top any list is a great fitting pair of jeans. But aside from a classic pair of skinnies, the best way to make your outfits look trendy and chic is a pair of ripped jeans, like these new arrivals from 7 for all Mankind. Ripped details add texture and interest to your look and they instantly bring a carefree edgy vibe to any outfit. Try pairing distressed jeans with a button up blouse or a silky tank that would otherwise feel dressy, and immediately the look has a more casual feel while still being polished and effortlessly stylish. The distressing adds an element of interest making the outfit more unique and dynamic and it also draws the eye to your legs, so show ‘em off!
A simple white button up blouse, like this perfect specimen by Rag Poets, is an essential for every wardrobe since it can be worn in so many different ways. Paired with trousers and a light blazer it can take you to the office. With jeans and flats it’s a great everyday look for your busy day running around town. Add in heels and a statement necklace you’re ready for lady’s night. Tie it over a dress for a beachy vibe that adds a layer to your look. You can do so much with one piece making it a great investment and a key essential for any wardrobe that you will wear over and over with all of your favorite outfits.
In addition to great basics, it’s also essential to have a few trendsetter tops to keep your closet fresh. A 525 America bell sleeve off the shoulder top hits many of the seasons trends, but is timelessly classic in its fit and clean crisp shade of white. Flowy sleeves have a bohemian, gypsy style feel to them that is perfect for warmer days and provides a carefree sense of effortlessness to your style. Plus, 525 is known for their quality and cotton blends, so a piece like this will be a favorite far beyond this spring and summer season.
A cute printed sleeveless blouse with a choker neckline, like this one by Veronica M, is another great trendy option that draws on classic styles for a stunning fusion of timelessness and current must-haves. The black and white snakeskin print is easy to match with and adds a luxurious feel to the look. With a built in choker neckline you don’t have to worry about jewelry since your neck is already adorned by this trendy top! It also comes in a few beautiful solid colors such as red or black for even more possibilities. Dress this up with your favorite skinny jeans for an instantly chic ensemble that requires little accessorizing.
Every woman should have at least two go-to dresses, a sexy Little Black Dress and something a little more unique and fun like a floral off the shoulder. We’re crushing on this LBD by Yumi Kim that is stunning for the spring and summer season. The open lace up back is sexy and very trendy, while the sleek silhouette and longer length are luxuriously classy. A midi style dress generally looks best with tall stilettos to offset the longer hemline, and a cute suede jacket over the shoulders completes the outfit.
The second essential is a more fun and flirty dress, something you can wear to more casual or daytime events, but also dress up for the evening. A flirty floral off the shoulder dress like this Amanda Uprichard silk mini can can take you so many places flawlessly. Itty bitty flowers cover this long sleeve mini dress giving it a girly, flirty feel with romantic and bohemian influences. The ruffle along the neckline creates movement and makes this dress really unique and fun, and the black and dusty pink color combo is positively seasonless. Something like this can be worn to a springtime wedding or graduation, as well as a girlfriends’ brunch or daytime birthday party. Florals are hot this season so you know you’ll be the the belle of the ball in this gorgeous off the shoulder mini dress.
Sweaters are another key piece to keep in mind, since they are not only essential during the colder winter months, but make great layers for throwing over your outfit on chilly evenings year round. Something about a classic striped sweater will never go out of style since it is a print that is so easy to wear. It’s a great piece to throw on with jeans that will always look chic and lend your look subtle Parisian vibes. Lace up sweaters are fun and cozy as well, and you’ve probably seen this contemporary style on trendsetters everywhere this winter. Luckily, a sweater like this will not need to be put away at the end of the cold season since it looks great layered over a tank or even your swimwear on summer evenings.
Another stunning piece to have as a basic in your closet is a statement black jumpsuit. A piece like this can be worn for so many occasions, casual or dressy, since it’s both sexy and sophisticated at the same time. The faux wrap top of this Veronica M one piece creates a low neckline that reveals just enough to hold our attention while the rest of this piece is more modestly covered leaving the overall look classy and stunning. The loose fit and silky fabric are so comfortable to wear and seriously feel weightless making this a favorite for comfort as well as style. Heels and a metallic clutch will take this look the the finest places, while booties and a cross-body bag look perfect for a weekend dinner date. Not to mention how easy it is to pull together your look with a one-piece outfit. It’s a really effortless way to look stunning with only a few simple accessories and no need to worry about matching!
