Key Pieces For A Stylish Look || Guest Post

There’s nothing wrong with updating your look with the help of those trendy pieces you’ve seen around, whether it’s the animal-print faux-fur coat, or a glittery dress (okay, that one MUST be a staple!) – but what happens when you sneak a peek into your closet with the aim to dress quickly and achieve that effortless glow?
It’s tough to find the right essential pieces that will work for pretty much every occasion, that will look flattering on every physique and make you feel comfortable at all times. However, the following have made the cut precisely for their impeccable simplicity and the ease with which you’ll put them on every day for work, your afternoon window shopping, or a gossip session with your besties.

Timeless footwear

There are a few key pieces of footwear that you’ll need to cover any occasion. For starters, the latest street style trend has once again emphasized the importance of owning those clean white sneakers, which are a must for any casual outing. As for your more formal, but active endeavours, ballet flats or ankle boots will do the trick – it’s best to stick to black or leather brown for colour, because, no matter how lovely, ultraviolet is hard to bring into the mix.
And finally, your feet require a pair of comfortable, but elegant black pumps that can do extremely well with a pair of simple jeans, but also with your dress pants for a special occasion. Elegance doesn’t require extravagance, so keep things versatile and simple for your feet!

Shirts that last

There will be many shirts you’ll fall in love with – the silky royal blue number, the lace-embellished one, the elegant red one. However, there will always be two style favourites that never need to make a comeback simply because they’ll never not be in vogue. We’re, of course, talking about the irreplaceable white button-down shirt for all intents and purposes, an office favourite, a casual staple, and a sophisticated pick easily updated with the right jewellery or a colourful scarf.
Your second, less formal choice, but equally worthy to be your go-to, is the lumberjack shirt. This simple, plaid design is an excellent choice for a gal who likes her style with a slightly rugged touch, so you can steal your man’s oversized shirt and enjoy its immense level of comfort.

Denim is your best friend

Cropped, distressed, bleached, straight-leg, with floral details, or high-waisted, you name them, but jeans are every woman’s must-have for every day. They even have an haute denim variety now that fits with some of the stricter office policies in the corporate world, but a pair of classic denim jeans are as flattering as a piece of wardrobe can possibly get!
Remember those shirts? They both (all, in fact!) go brilliantly well with them, and all of your favourite shoes will be able to define your look further. The classy black pumps will elevate them, while the white sneakers will define that street-friendly outfit.


The beauty of a little black dress is that it doesn’t have to be fully black, or little at all. As the go-to item in every lady’s wardrobe that can be defined as both elegant and effortless, you can pick a dress that is in essence black, but has an accent shade or a distinct subdued pattern, or it can be embellished with florals, lace, and similar details.
Then again, you can pick your length depending on your personal preference and what the situation requires. It can be mini for your summer night outings, or in full length for more glamorous events. It can be off-shoulder, asymmetrical in length, form-fitting, flared with an A-line form, with or without sleeves. Whichever you prefer, it will be the number one choice for every time you want to look your best and emphasize your most beloved features.

The rebel jacket

They are handy, powerful, multifunctional, warm, but they make you feel deliciously cool. Yes, the biker jacket frenzy is so much more than a passing fad, and it has nothing to do with our perpetual crush on Marlon Brando. Whether you prefer leather or faux leather, the simple, crop jacket can make a wonderful addition to any ensemble, including the ones for your office or your girls’ nights out.
Although they are at their best in black, you can choose from a whole range of perfectly wearable alternatives such as bold red, forest green, or crisp white, depending on your own preferences. What matters is that you keep it comfy and wear it whenever you possibly can!
