Ladies, having the perfect wardrobe starts with the essentials. Owning these key pieces can help add more pizazz to your everyday look.
1. The Perfect Coat
Having the right coat can make fashion life so much easier. Throwing a fabulous coat on the most basic outfit can add a lot of style with the least amount of effort. It’s worth it to invest a little extra in a warm and stylish coat, after all, it’s the one thing you’ll be wearing everyday.

2. Leather or Suede Jacket
A leather or suede jacket is a perfect statement piece. You can throw this on top of any outfit and look like a rockstar instantly. The best part: You don’t have to put down $500+ for real leather or suede (unless you really want to). Go to your local Zara, Nordstroms, or Bloomingdales and you can grab a fabulous faux jacket for under $100.

Boots are great, but booties are even better! Having a cute pair of booties to go with your leggings, dresses, skirts or jeans is essential to a chic yet effortless wardrobe. What I love the most about booties is that you can go flat without looking too casual. Gone are the days when your running shoes were your everyday comfort shoes.

4. Statement Scarf
I love throwing a printed scarf over all of my outfits. It instantly adds a luxurious feel to any look. Blanket scarves are a great substitute for a jacket on those milder days.

5. Well Fitted Jeans
Having a good pair of jeans is essential to any person’s wardrobe. Instead of buying cheap jeans and having to throw them out a couple times a year, opt for a more expensive pair that you only have to replace once in a while. J Brand, Joe’s, AGs, Paige, and Citizens of Humanity all are wonderful brands that will last you a while… and the softness of the denim will ‘wow’ you!

6. The Perfect Everyday Bag
Spend a little more on a purse you plan to use everyday. If you have your essential purse down, you can buy cheaper fun statement purses the rest of the year. The great thing about a luxurious purse is that it can dress up even the most simplest of outfits.

7. Dressy T-Shirt
An easy way to look more polished is to ditch the basic cotton t-shirts and go for synthetic shirts. Synthetic shirts are great because you can hand or machine wash them and not worry about them shrinking in the dryer or the fabric looking old and stained.

8. Indoor jacket
If your sick of cardigans, opt for an indoor jacket instead. Having a cute indoor jacket is a great way to layer your look and add style to your outfit. My favorite indoor jackets are ‘moto’ style jackets with bigger collars.
