Not only am I a Makeup Artist but I am also a Stylist, and a common question that people ask is What are some must-have pieces?
So here is a quick reference list of some must have pieces to have in your closet.
Little Black Dress or LBD.
Now my version of this has a bunch of leather detailing, but it is black and short and I can wear it 100 different ways. So don’t think that you have to go safe or boring. But definitely everyone should have a LBD in their closet.
I think everyone should have one pair of skinny jeans that are a great fit and a medium to dark wash. You can wear them everyday or just for going out, but guaranteed you will get a ton of use out of them.
Now again, it doesn’t have to be a stuffy business suit, but some sort of blazer is something you should have. I have a great boyfriend blazer, and this year I bought one with a hoodie attached, so it acts as a coat sometimes as well. A blazer is a great way to dress up denim or dress down a fancy dress.
A graphic tee.
This a great piece to put under your blazer or to throw on with jeans.
I love cardigans. Now this can be a short fitted one or a long bulky one. But a great looking cardigan is another piece that you can just throw on over anything.
It is always good to have a great classic blouse. This will be great to wear on its own or under any blazer or cardigan. Don’t worry about going for a classic again, though you can, but there is so many fun blouses with colour and pattern.
I suggest having one flat, one pump, one shootie, and one boot to start and then over time you can fill in the gaps.
So this is a perfect start to your closet. And once you have your base you can fill in the gaps to create your perfect wardrobe!
