5 Black Essentials Every Woman Should Own
There are some items that you absolutely need ready and waiting in your closet. These make up the basis of your wardrobe; they’re the must haves, no matter what your style. Every woman’s wardrobe needs the basics and those basics are usually black because, as we know, black goes with everything and rarely dates.
1. Black dress
Every woman knows she should have a little black dress, but it’s important to invest in one that’s special. Look for a dress with a detail—an interesting sleeve, an embellished belt—that makes it unique.
Choose a black dress in the style that suits you, makes you feel comfortable, and looks most like you. It can be sleeveless, have cap sleeves, or have 3/4-length sleeves. It can have a V-neck, boat neck, crew neck, or square neck.
It can be knee-length, a little longer, a little shorter, or miniskirt length. A black dress is both universal and individual at the same time. Remember that finding the right fit is important! Also, try to stick with a classic style so the dress doesn’t date. Find one that makes you feel fabulous and make the investment because this is one piece that really gives you your money’s worth!
2. Black jacket or blazer
A tailored black blazer is classic, feminine and looks great on all body types. Pair it with anything: jeans, little dresses, trousers, skirts. Make sure to find one that fits you well and accentuates your waist—you don’t want it to look like it’s swallowing you! A blazer will be the most used item in your wardrobe, so make sure you invest in a good quality blazer.
On the weekend, they’re casual chic and during the week they’re totally office-chic. Black pants are also slimming – as if you need another reason to pick up a pair!
Stock your closet with a great basic, goes-with-everything pair of heels and we promise you’ll wear them to death.
Chicer than sneakers and more comfy than heels, ballet flats are the best of both worlds. Black ballet flats can add some french chic to cropped pants and little black dresses but will also go with jeans, midi skirts and shorts.
