Whatever the time of year, you probably want to add pieces to your wardrobe to be sure you're dressed stylishly for the season. Some of the more basic pieces never go out of style, and then you can add items that are more trendy, to supplement your existing wardrobe.
Your Basic Wardrobe
You should always have clothes for business and casual wear that will allow you to add to them or dress them up, depending on where you're off to. Select high quality ladies fashions, so that they will look their best for as long as you want to keep them as part of your basic wardrobe.
The fashions you choose will include dresses and skirts, as well as jeans and trousers. You don't have to wear the precise latest of trendy clothing, if those pieces don't flatter your figure or don't fit with your sense of style. If you're still young, you can wear trousers more easily that have a lower rise to them. Feel free to try on more than a few pieces of clothing, to find the trousers, skirts and shirts that look the best on you.
Add Some Trendy Pieces
There are various types of trousers that are popular each fashion season. Some have tapered legs, and some have straight legs. You may also choose from boot leg or wide leg designs. Some of these styles really affect mainly the type of jeans you'll be wearing. Most professional trousers will be straight enough to look conservative, and proper in business situations.
Knit tops work well with basic trousers and skirts in your wardrobe. They are almost always considered to be in style. The length of tops may vary from one year to the next, but allow plenty of length so that they hit you close to the middle of your hip. Enjoy your time trying on a variety of colours and styles, and check the necklines in the mirror, to find those that flatter you the most.
The necklines that you'll see most often include scoop necks, which show off a bust line nicely, and crew necks, which are classic and well-used in casual clothes. A turtleneck will be comfortable and cosy in the wintertime, and a boat neck top will help to broaden the lines of your shoulders. Many of these shirts will look elegant when you pair them with dressy trousers, or comfortable when you wear them with khakis or jeans.
Ladies fashions change with the season however by understanding the basics you can get yourself a whole new wardrobe that will never go out of trend.
