The Wardrobe Essentials Everyone Needs
*written by a partner of sequins & satin
We all like hitting the stores and picking up a few new clothing items. Those items can usually be divided into one of three categories.
They could be clothes that we know we’ll only wear for the weekend (we’re thinking: night out with friends at a disco party).
Or, they could be clothes that will form part of your wardrobe for the season (cute summer outfits). Finally, they could be an all-timer, an item that you’ll have for years and years.
It’s those items we’re interested in in this article. In this blog, we’re going to run through some key items that everyone should have.
These are the items that’ll be part of your aesthetic for years to come. Or, in other words: they’re important.
1. A Great Winter Coat
If you live in a place that gets chilly in the winter months (that is, most of us), then it’s worthwhile investing in a great winter coat. This will help to keep you warm and looking good all winter long, so it’s worth taking the time to explore all that’s available and pick one that you’ll be happy to wear for years to come. Don’t have all that much to spend, but still want a great coat? Then look at second-hand clothing websites. You’ll find brand coats at a bargain price. Those coats keep their quality forever, so don’t worry that it’s “used” — it won’t matter.
2. Iconic Boots
And talking of winter: it’s also worth investing in a great pair of boots. Many people buy cheap boots, but you don’t actually save money that way. The cheapness means that they’ll be unlikely to make it through the winter, so you’ll only need to buy another pair. If you spend a decent amount of money on your boots, then not only will they look better, but you also won’t need to think about buying another pair for a long time to come.
3. Meaningful Accessories
So far, we’ve talked about items that you might buy in the store. However, it’s also worth looking at those items that you can’t buy in the store. We’re talking about treasured family pieces that, with a little TLC, could become part of your look. For example, is there a watch in your family that no one wears? Then look at getting it fixed by a company like Fast-Fix, and start wearing it. There’s a whole host of great accessories that you can wear, but there are none as special as wearing an item that has family significance.
4. Formal Wear
Finally, think about adding some formal wear to your wardrobe. You won’t wear these pieces often (or, not as often as you’d like), but when the time calls for it, you’ll know that you have a standout outfit that’ll turn heads for all the right reasons. Think of a classic black cocktail dress that you can pull out when there’s a slightly more formal event. If you make the right selection, then you’ll have a go-to piece that you love.
