Whatever style choices a woman has, there are items that should never miss in her closet. They include…

1Black pants. Well-fitting black pants are great for the office and formal events and can be paired with many different tops and shoes.

2Little black dress. This is one of the handiest pieces in a woman’s wardrobe that can be worn at the office with a cardigan or blazer or at a dinner party matched with a great neckpiece and heels.

3Knee-length black skirt. Go for a figure-fitting pencil or A-line skirt and pair it with a casual blouse if you want to dress down or a blazer for an official look.

4Blazer. Whether it is for a formal or casual look, select a blazer that fits perfectly. On length, long blazers give a taller impression while those fitted at the waist emphasise one’s waistline.

5Crisp, white shirt. This should be made out of cotton and should also be well fitting. A white shirt can be worn on it’s own, under a sweater or blazer as part of a suit, and even casually with a jeans skirt.

6Jeans. Find a pair that fits perfectly and accentuates your best features. To draw attention away from your waist area, go for flared jeans. To accentuate your waist, get a high-waisted pair.
