A black dress

Simple Flats

Of course, you need a pair of nice flats, those ones you can swap your heels for and they still look good with whatever you are wearing. Look out for simple embellishments, bows and other standout details.



A lady should have at least one killer pump. The heels come in handy for when you want to dress up and flat and sloppy footwear are not allowed. This immediately fires up your look.


Black Pants

But of course black pants, you know that all-purpose one. Black pants are incredibly versatile and must-haves. It’s the one you wear as part of a corporate look complete with a shirt and a jacket, your casual getup thrown on with a shirt, sporty styled with a tank and so on. Every wardrobe must have perfectly fitting black pants. 


Knee Length Skirt

A knee-length skirt in a flattering style is a wardrobe staple. It works paired with a lot of style pieces, just get creative with it.


A black blazer

Think of something that goes well thrown on any get-up. It could be kimono styled or even an ageless trench, that piece that instantly adds that oomph to your complete look. Just make sure it’s not a cheap-looking one!
