Wardrobe essentials are timeless and so it will always be worth it for you to invest in luxury and high-quality pieces that will stand the test of time. From your classic white shirt to a well-tailored trench coat, choose well cut shapes and silhouettes that come in luxurious fabrics. 

6 must-haves for your wardrobe  

The Classic White shirt: There’s nothing like a crisp white shirt to add a touch of elegance to your outfit. A white shirt worn with a classic pair of indigo jeans is a look that will never go out of style. White shirts are stable in any working woman’s wardrobe.

Ralph Lauren will always include this classic item in their collection and Carolina Herrera said that this garment defines her lifestyle.

The LBD (Little Black Dress): Just as the colour black is a wardrobe staple so must the little black dress. Invented by Coco Chanel, who often wore hers with a string of pearls, this essential can be worn to suit any occasion by simple accessorising it differently. Find a black dress that flatters your body shape the most.

This little black dress from designer Karl Lagerfeld’s Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2018/2019 collection is a more modern version of the classic dress. Other designers like Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy will always have elegant and stylish black dresses in their collections.

Pencil Skirt: The skirt is stylish and is flattering for any body type. For an effortlessly sophisticated look, wear it with a classic white shirt and nude heels or pumps. A pencil skirt can easily go from work to dinner by simply changing the shirt to something silky or sheer.

Designers like Prada, Fendi and Max Mara have included and brought back the appeal of the pencil skirt.

The trench coat: Worn over casual jeans, dresses and trendy sneakers or over a smart suit and paired with sexy heels, the trench coat is the most practical and versatile outerwear garment. Wear it belted to accentuate your waist or untied for a more relaxed and casual look.

The  Blazer: A well tailored and fitted blazer can be dressed up or down. Paired with a pencil skirt and heels make it the perfect office wear. Worn with jeans and a t-shirt it has a more casual feel. 

A black or a checkered blazer from designers such as Max Mara (pictured),  Brandon Maxwell, Céline or Gucci will give any outfit a polished look.

Classic Black heels: A sexy pair of black heels is bound to make any woman feel sexy and more confident. It automatically changes the way one walks and it instantly makes one feel feminine. Invest in a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps. They will never go out of style!
