Five Timeless Fashions Every Woman Should Own

by Rene Mitchelle

Figuring out what to wear can be difficult for women. Just about every woman alive has muttered the words "I have nothing to wear!" while looking at a closet full of clothes. Having some core basics in your wardrobe can help reduce the anxiety of figuring out what to wear each day. Here are five must-haves that should be a part of every women's fashion repertoire:

A Classic Blazer

Actually, the wise woman will have a few different blazers. Choose at least one navy blazer and one black one. It four-season climates, you may want to have one of each color in both a lightweight polyester and a worsted wool. Blazers can be paired with dress pants or a skirt, and you can also dress them down by pairing with your favorite pair of jeans.

Tuxedo Pants

These pants are a timeless, classic piece that never goes out of style. Whether you buy them in the classic style, or with tapered ankles and a slimmer fit, they will always be the perfect pair of black dress pants for special events, like an evening at the theater or a dinner party. Tuxedo pants are also available in white, making them the ideal dress pant for summer. Like blazers, if you live in a temperate climate, purchase a black pair in both a lighter weight and in wool as well as a lightweight pair in white.

A Cashmere Crewneck Sweater

These luxurious sweaters are lightweight yet warm, and they will always be fashionable. They are perfect by themselves or under a blazer. Red or navy are good colors to consider as they will go with just about anything, whether it be a simple skirt or a pair of jeans.

Silk Scarves

A silk scarf or two in a traditional pattern, such as paisley, will instantly upgrade any outfit you put on from "blah" to "wow." Silk is also versatile enough to help keep cold drafts off your neck in the winter, but not cause overheating in warmer weather. Vintage silk scarves are also frequently easy to find at high-end thrift stores, making them an affordable wardrobe accessory.

The Perfect Pair Of Dress Jeans

Everyone has their own personal preference, but whether it's a pair of skinny jeans, wide leg, or boot cut denim, a nice pair of dressy jeans is a fashion must. Find a pair that fits you perfectly, are comfortable, and can be dressed up or down for business-casual events.
