Why Less is More When it Comes to Your Perfect Wardrobe
A woman’s image is often portrayed through her clothing. Many people want to be up to date with the latest trends and fashions, while others prefer to define their own individual style that sets them apart from the ‘trendy’ crowd. Whatever approach you take, everyone needs a few classics in their wardrobe and some great accessories to complement them. If you get this right, a half empty wardrobe can contain everything you need for a great outfit every day.
Picture the scene. It’s the end of a long day at work and your colleagues are going out for a drink. The shoes you’re wearing could make or break your decision as to whether you join them. If you’ve gone for sensible, comfortable work shoes, you might not feel glamorous enough to head out to a swanky wine bar, but in killer heels you’re probably just dying to take them off. That’s why it’s important to invest in a versatile yet comfortable pair of shoes. However, if heels are important to your confidence then go for a comfortably high pair. Sandals are a bit risky because they limit you to wearing them without tights and a real classic pair of shoes will see you through any season.
A bag can accessorise any outfit, adding a bit of sparkle or toning it down depending on the circumstances. While most women want a collection of bags to see them through all possible occasions, it is crucial not to overlook the importance of “the” bag. You know the one – the trusty one that is just the right size, big enough to fit everything in yet small enough to look classy. It’s probably dark in colour so it fits with whatever you’re wearing. Whenever you’re unsure which bag to take, you turn to this one. If you haven’t got “the” bag, it is worthwhile investing the time and money into finding the perfect one for you.
Even if you move with the fashion and like to be bang up to date with the latest trends, a few classic items in your wardrobe won’t go amiss. Classic pieces, such as those in the LK Bennett range, can be dressed up differently depending on the bag, shoes and accessories that you team them with. Great quality clothes will last season after season and if you go for a timeless piece, it will never go out of fashion. A little black dress, a pencil skirt or a smart pair of trousers can always be teamed up with items from the current trend and nobody will know they’ve seen you wearing that one item of clothing before.
From scarves to necklaces and cardigans to belts, the accessories you choose can make or break any outfit. Relatively cheap in comparison with other parts of your outfit, you can afford to buy a few accessories each season to change the look of your classic items on a regular basis. If you are on a really tight budget, consider scouring charity shops for genuine vintage items to fit in with the current trend.
