Life is busy, and women don’t always have time to stop by the house for a quick wardrobe change before between work and a party or chilling with friends and date. That is the reason why transitional pieces are so important. A transitional piece can easily change an outfit completely, cutting down on wardrobe changes and giving every woman more time to make money, spend time with friends or chat up their cute date:
1. Little black dress
The little black dress, or the LBD, is famous for its versatility and timelessness. This black dress can be professional and classy, or fun and dressed up for a night out. With sneakers and a jean jacket, it can be casual. With heels, jewelry, and a well-done updo, it can be formal. Name a place where an LBD wouldn’t be appropriate. We’ll wait.
2. Structured blazer
Although blazers have overtaken the workforce, in recent months, the silhouette that the blazer provides has exploded on the fashion scene, making it a staple in every wardrobe. Paired with jeans, and you’ve got yourself a cool-girl outfit. Paired with a pencil skirt and you’re ready for an interview. Take a look at any runway; you’ll be rushing to the store to get your hands on a blazer.
3. White button down shirt
Every woman probably owns a plain white button-down for interviews, but she probably doesn’t know that this is an incredibly versatile item. A button-down can be tied around the waist for a fun night out; it is just as good in a casual setting as it is in a formal one. Although it isn’t quite as versatile as the LBD, a white button-down is a staple in every wardrobe.
4. Basic t-shirts
Sure, it’s fun to buy a statement piece like an orange trench coat, but what are you going to wear with it, your cheetah print purse? The only reason that statement pieces shine is because of the basic items you layer beneath. Basic, natural t-shirts are essential in every wardrobe and every season. There isn’t a place or a time when a plain black t-shirt wouldn’t be acceptable, except maybe at a formal gathering.
5. Leather jacket
These jackets are classy and cool. They look good in the workplace, and they give you the cool girl feel everywhere else. Want to be that mysterious girl out and about? Throw on a leather jacket, and you’re most of the way there. Sure, they’re an investment, but a cool jacket pays you back in longevity and amazing outfits.
6. Ballet flats
Ballet flats are easy to slip on, they blend in with outfits, they’re comfortable, and they’re the perfect step in between classy and casual; what more could you want? If you don’t already own a pair, you need some, stat. They come in many styles, and they go with work outfits or casual outfits, whatever you need.
