So mamas what are your fashion essentials? I can tell you mine–black yoga pants and a jersey shirt.
But, unless I’m on my way to the gym, this getup is likely to garner me a spot on TLC’s what not to wear! So I’ve decided that I need to brush up on some staple wardrobe essentials (that I MIGHT actually wear) and here’s what I came up with.
The perfect little cocktail dress! The little black dress ( like the one I’m wearing above)- has been an essential since Breakfast at Tiffany’s and is always my go-to but this fall I am ready to try a Peplum: Believe it or not this throwback to the Victoria era is insanely flattering it hides everything and is great at defining your waist–remember accentuate the positive eliminate the negative! And I am LOVING this Alice + Olivia ‘Bria’ Peplum Fit & Flare Dress which features smart front pleats on a fit-and-flare skirt with an unexpected vent that reveals a crisp white underskirt for a bit of graphic contrast of course in Black!
Shoes-– do you really need a classic black pump-is it a fashion essential? No, if you like classic- you can amp up your sexy with nude pump which is just as versatile as black pump. And even better go for pumps in retro fabric like these Carrie Pumps from Guess which are the perfect colorful accessory!
The pleat: It is back and you don’t have to be afraid of it! Who knew! And you can go shorter and a lil funkier with this boohoo Ava Subtle Pleat Front Full Skirt
Swap your skinnies for a skirt and do something different for day! Beat the winter blues with bodycon skirts in bright primary colours, or play with the punchy palette in pleated skirts to channel a cheerleader vibe. Continuing the sporty theme, midi skirts come with stripe trims and ribbed finishes so you can work off-court cool on off-duty days. Soften up sporty and wear an A-line skirt with 60s-inspired white tights to take your style to new heights.
Every women needs a cardigan. Sling a cardigan over a pair of jeans or an inappropriate dress for daytime and cover it up- take off the cardigan for night time pair it with a chunky piece of jewelry and a belt and you are ready to go!
The dark waisted trouser jean-– is it fashion essential? Looks great on every woman if you carry weight in hips and thighs-Bottom line a trouser jean– gives you straight line from hip to ground- elongates your leg
So…are you ready to brave any of these wardrobe essentials?
