#1. The first is a nice, well tailored pant/skirt suit. I much prefer skirt suits. I had to dig into my blog archives to pull up some old photos so sorry if they are not great
The first is my infamous Theory Gratian Lecture Tweed skirt suit that I almost had a heart attack finding! I had to get the entire suit tailored because it was a 0- the 00's were sold out right away. I can only wear this in Fall/Winter but nonetheless- love it! The second suit is a Bebe gray pinstripe skirt suit that I literally had to hunt down the 00. I got it last winter and love it so much and wear it often. It fits so perfectly with NO alterations and I got the entire suit for about $125 on sale. Love the fact that I can wear this year-round making this a great investment for me!#2. The second must have in your closet is a nice pair of high quality black pumps. I used to buy tons of cheapie pumps (Aldo etc.) but this year I spurlged and got myself a pair of Christian Louboutin's!
Another cheaper yet still high quality are Ann Taylor Perfect Elle pumps. I have 2 pairs from AT which run a bit big for a small size 5 foot but still love them. And if you get it on sale, it's 1/5 of the price of the Christian Louboutin's!
#3. A Chanel Classic Flap Purse is a true MUST have in every woman's wardrobe! I prefer black only because it goes with everything but any color Chanel would suffice:) I have 2 Chanel purses and use them everyday!! I have the Chanel Grand Shopper Tote as well as the medium classic flap purse.
#4. A classic black sheath dress. This will never go out of style and you can dress up or down and it literally goes with everything.
This dress is from H & M- size 2. I have gotten so much use out of this dress- I definitely got my money's worth out of $34.95!! I can wear it alone, belt it, or throw a blazer over it. It's not only versatile but it makes you look long and lean! There are ton's of options when it comes to a simple LBD! Banana Republic usually has a black sheath dress , Ann Taylor Sheath dress or you can opt to spend a little more and get the Theory Betty Sheath dress!
#5. A nice pearl necklace is something I cannot live without. What is an outfit without accessories? I love love pearls and I think every woman needs a nice pearl necklace. I love them in all colors but the staple piece is a white pearl necklace.
Most readers know I wear different pearls with most of my outfits. It's classy, classic and just gorgeous! I know there are several more petite staples we girls must have but then this post would have been way too long. Another staple everyone should have is a pair of nude/neutral pumps. I have several in my shoe collection and they really are a must! My fav is Ann Taylor Porcini Pumps. A black pencil skirt is another staple I didn't talk about but is essential for the work place. And a nice pair of jeans (which I don't have) is a no brainer. But for petites, jeans are very difficult to find (at least for me).
What do you think is a staple in every woman's wardrobe?
