3 Wardrobe Basics You Need Right Now
Every woman knows that you need a little black dress, comfortable pair of jeans, and professional khakis in your closet, but those items alone won’t get you far. After all, what’s the point of a little black dress if you don’t have black heels to go with it?
You can find a few forgotten staples that will instantly boost your wardrobe options while elevating your look. Mix and match these items for various occasions, and save money while you turn heads. Make the sidewalk your own personal runway by investing in the following three wardrobe staples.
The Classic Black Blazer
Everyone talks about the little black dress, but today’s career woman needs a black blazer. Blazers are great for adding an executive feel to a dress or top while enabling you to easily wear sleeveless shirts and tank tops to the office. You might wear your blazer to a meeting and take it off when you’re out at lunch with friends. Plus, you can pair your blazer with jeans to create a polished look for a night on the town.
The good news is that you can look like a million bucks without paying much money. When you use JCPenney coupons, you can sometimes get blazers on sale for about $50. Check social media, such as the JCPenney Coupons For Good Facebook page, for coupons so that you can find black pencil skirts for a matching set for an interview or board meeting.
Most people think about winter weather when they’re told to grab a scarf, but these accessories are year-round fashion statements, especially in the workplace. In the same way that the blazer creates sleeves to cover a sleeveless tank top, your scarf can help you cover the front of your body if you’re wearing a low-cut top. A scarf also serves to add a pop of color if you’re wearing neutral staples such as khaki pants and a blue button-down blouse or shirt.
Several retailers tend to have a great choice of scarves year-round, especially when retailers like Kohl’s offer coupons for shoppers. You shouldn’t have trouble finding one you love — even if you’re shopping in July.
A Solid Pair of Rain Boots
This item may not be as pressing if you live somewhere dry, such as Los Angeles or Tuscon, but most women will need to protect their legs and their outfits with a pair of rain boots throughout the year.
You won’t be comfortable arriving to work with your legs soaked from sloshing through the street and stepping in puddles. Water tends to creep up clothing, and you could be damp from the knees down.
Many retailers have designed fashionable rain boots with a variety of patterns, but you can invest in a solid black or navy pair. Look for coupons from retailers such as Kohl’s for help. Store your shoes in your purse and change into them when you arrive at work and are out of the rain.
All women want to feel beautiful without spending a fortune on clothes. Keep an eye out for a few wardrobe staples and know what looks good for your particular body type.
