Happy Fashion Friday everyone! Yes, it’s that time again. Time to delve on into the world of fashion; or at least my world of fashion. Today, I wanted to do something just a little bit different. Instead of styling an outfit, I have decided that I would give you some of my fashion must-haves. These change from time to time, and definitely from season to season, but the items that I mention here are the ones that I truly feel that I cannot live without (no matter what). So, without further a-do here are my top 10 fashion must-haves…
I don’t care what your fashion style is, a cardigan can be paired with just about anything. It’s especially great for those Sunday mornings when you want to wear a sleeveless dress to church but know that your granny will NOT approve you going bare-armed.
Maybe it’s just me but I happen to love scarves. I think they are the ultimate accessory because they can be paired and look amazing with a variety of different outfits. Depending on your personal style, a scarf could add that extra “umph” to an outfit that nothing else could.
I love heels just like the next female however, there are days when I know I am going to be on my feet all day and heels just don’t look as appealing during those times. Besides, flats are a lot more comfortable and they can look great with jeans, a skirt and a dress.
Every woman needs, and probably still has, her little black dress. Okay, it doesn’t have to be “little” per se but you know what I mean. A black dress can be the perfect outfit for multiple events: from a date night or an interview to a lunch meeting with a client. The ingenious black dress can cover you on a variety of occasions.
This is probably the only accessory that you can have some real fun with. Earrings come in a variety of styles: from the stud to the hoop to the dangling ones. Earrings are definitely a great way to add a little bit of fun and flashiness to your outfit.
I love leggings! I wear them under my sweater dresses in the Fall and Winter and pair them with extra long shirts in the Spring and Summer. I even pair them with a jean skirt, on my little girls, when they want to present a bit of a “hipster” style for school or church.
This is a must-have for every woman, seriously. Whoever created the first pair of jeans was a genius and will always be fondly thought of by moi. I have a favorite pair of jeans that I still have in my closet but can no longer fit into. I try to reason with myself that I am only keeping them to pass down to my daughters as they get older and may be able to one day fit them but I think I am still secretly keeping them around for myself, with the hope of someday losing that extra pregnancy weight and being able to get back into them. Only time will tell…
I have a confession to make. Please don’t judge me. Have you ever seen one of those people that had on a pair of sunglasses even in the winter? You may even hate those people…right? Well, I am one of them, hahaha. I really don’t mean to be but I am the girl that can, and will, wear a pair of sunglasses all year round. In my defense, there are still some very sunny days even during the Winter. I don’t know what it is that I love about sunglasses…maybe it is because they are able to hide my un-mascara’d eyes and are similar to a mask in some ways, but I digress.
I love being able to tell the time, at a moments notice. I understand I can just get my cell phone out and look at the time on it, which I still do from time to time, but there is something about having a watch on my wrist that gives me peace of mind. Call me old-school but I hate leaving the house without a watch on.
10. Lip Gloss
This is probably the most predictable fashion must-have, especially on a woman’s list. What can I say, I cannot stand for my lips to get chapped. I’m very “girly” in that way. Whether you’re trying to keep your lips moist for your partner or purely for yourself, lip gloss is compact enough and can easily provide the continuous moisture that you need throughout your day.
What are some of your fashion must-haves? Is there anything in particular that you would add or take away from this list? Tell me all about it.
