People may frown all they want, but you just gotta have one of them in your wardrobe and then you can care as less as you want to about the top or blouse you want to wear with it. Again, shop for your body type, the ones that fit and flatter you just as perfectly as you are. Every woman needs a perfect pair of jeans in her closet, find your cut and work your way through it.

You must have a basic tee, in a basic color that suits your skin tone. Or the color that sets your perfect mood. Most people go for black or white. Needless to say, you must have those colors as well, with your designed neckline, mostly preferred V shaped neckline. You can experiment with other colors as well, like the bright pink or the bright yellow with green and orange, so that if you don’t feel like choosing what to wear, you can chose any color and wrap it up as it is with that vibrant color and no accessories.

8.  Fitted Blazer


Yes that’s right, the season doesn’t matter and you just gotta have one of these fitted blazers. Whether it is a formal occasion or something casual like an informal jam session with your friends, you can put these on, over your black pants and carry it off quite well. A fitted blazer can compliment up any outfit. Go with a neutral color blazer, the one that goes about halfway to your hip, complementing that very curve that you have also giving you that slimming effect. It can practically go with anything that you have in your closet.

7. Button down shirt


A basic button down shirt, long or short, white or black, goes with absolutely anything. Wear it with spaghetti inside and just wrap it around with sleek cotton material shirt and you are ready for almost any fashion situation. A basic button down shirt looks good with almost everything. Wear it with jeans or skirt, it’s the most versatile wear and it can range from a beach wear to a casual wear to a formal uptight corporate outfit. Experimenting with other colors can really enliven your wardrobe. So sling this on, before you head out of the door, early in the morning or even at middle of the night.

6.  Black Skirt


A nice short, pencil or just flairs skirt with a perfect side cut line. Wear it with a huge knit with funky printed tights or just a black tight and with a basic leather jacket or simple white shirt and you are all set.  Skirts look flattering on any sort of body type and are an easy way to dress up. Do not worry about tights if you are comfortable with bare legs or just carry it on with long boots. Style it up with printed scarves or a lot of junk jewelry to carry with fairly well. This is an essential and whether you have donned skirts before or not, make sure this sits in your wardrobe.

It allows you to wear those light airy garments that go well with your attire but you often have apprehensions about the same, or they just make you feel self-conscious at times.
