Wardrobe Essentials

From office to evening, you’re always in the public eye. Better look your best, right? This may not always be easy with some of the high costs of today’s hottest trends. As always though, here at DHstyles.com, we’ve got a way to create an award winning look without breaking the bank. Looking trendy is always great, but the downfall is trends are usually short lived. That’s why those distressed denim acid wash straight leg jeans from 1987 are still in the corner of your closet (just get rid of them already!). With a few simple pieces that can be worked into a number of looks, your wardrobe can stand the test of time for sure! We’ve taken the time to pull pieces from our collection that are absolute wardrobe essentials. These can be worked into office wear, super cute school looks, casual day outfits, or even date night styles. With these selections, layering is the key. Layer simple pieces together for a look that’s always appropriate, or pair with one statement or trendy item for a hot look that’s runway worthy.

Wardrobe Essential #1: Fitted, Solid Colored Tops

Solid colored tops are a must have. Mix it up with long sleeves, short sleeves, tanks, and so much more! Make sure you have a few “pop” colors (i.e reds, bright yellows) and some neutrals that go with everything (white, cream, gray, brow, etc.). This is essentially the first step of any layered look, no matter what the occasion or season.

Wardrobe Essential #2: A Cozy, Cuddly Sweater

Fall is here and winter is right around the corner. Sweaters are an absolute must have! Here at DHstyles, we’ve been expanding our sweater collection with everything from turtlenecks to rib knits, boat necks and more! These examples (pictured above) are simple but chic colors and styles that you can sport no matter what the trend of the season is!

Wardrobe Essential #3: Go-To Jeans & Dress Pants

We all love a great pair of jeans! They’re an Americana classic style that’s become a worldwide wardrobe staple. Jeans aren’t appropriate for all occasions though. A pair of wide leg trousers serves as a great answer to any professional or formal event. Go with khaki, charcoal, navy blue, and black colors for pieces that can be worked into various outfits.

Wardrobe Essential #4: A Sexy, Structured Skirt

Skirts are the perfect way to create a feminine look in seconds. No matter what the occasion, you can’t go wrong in sexy and structured skirt. A slinky mini is the way to go for dates and parties. A neutral colored pencil skirt is great for the office. Want something with a bit more flair? A simple black ruffled skirt can translate into a multitude of looks and occasions.

Wardrobe Essential #5: Jackets, Cardigans, and Other Cover Ups

Fall is the perfect season for a cute cardigan. Choose a solid color or go with a minimalistic print (like the charcoal and black stripes pictured above) for an extra style flair. Jackets and coats are the most important part of a winter wardrobe. From biker style jackets, to chic trenches, DHstyles.com is expanding our jacket/coat collection daily!

Wardrobe Essential #5: The Classic Little Black Dress

The images speak for themselves! Nothing to wear for that last minute event? Not anymore! Slip into a little black dress and you’re good to go for anything. Layer plunged dresses with camisoles and blazers for a look that’s great for work. A stylish little black is like blank canvas for style. Throw on your favorite shoes and accessories for a look that’s all your own.

Wardrobe Essential #6: Simple Shoes and Accessories

Sexy black pumps, a little black bag, silver hoops, and a small rhinestone bracelet; throw these on with day or evening outfits to complete the look. Go with simple choices of black or brown for purses and bags. For jewelry, keep to gold, silver or pewter hues if you want pieces that can translate into a number of looks. DHstyles.com definitely takes the work out of accessorizing!
