Best Basic Clothing Pieces For Women 2021
Transforming your wardrobe may seem like a monumental task, but giving your clothing collection an update doesn’t have to be a scary prospect. Investing in a few key pieces can ensure you have a capsule wardrobe that really reflects current trends and your own personal tastes. To get you started, here are some of the best basic clothing pieces for women in 2021.
Flare jeans are back in fashion and are a really flattering choice if you want to balance out wider hips. Team with high heels to make your legs look longer and slimmer.
Classic blue flare jeans work from day into night and are great teamed with everything from a fitted shirt or turtleneck to an airy blouse or voluminous sweater. Choose styles with a higher waist and tuck shirts and sweaters into the belt.
This is a timeless classic that has a place in any woman’s wardrobe. It is a comfortable staple that also manages to look stylish and sophisticated. What else could you want from a piece of clothing? Just make sure that you choose dense, quality fabrics if you can. They may cost a little more, but these items quite simply will never go out of fashion.
These pullovers are also a hugely versatile choice. You could dress them up with a pencil skirt or down with jeans and sneakers for a college student look. Skinny jeans would look great with a bottle green pullover and a chunky scarf for when the weather gets cool.
Classic tailored pants are a must-have if you like the idea of clothing that can stretch your silhouette and really make you appear slimmer. Team with heels for maximum effect and make the most of their style and sophistication in all sorts of different settings.
A pair of well-fitting straight-cut pants such as our Black Seam Side Pocket Classic Long Pants are the ideal basis for a versatile and flattering work ensemble but also have so many other uses. Wear with sneakers and a denim jacket for a dressed-down look, or team with sky-high heels and a sexy camisole such as the Black Scallop Opening Adjustable Strap Cami Top for a night on the tiles. Remember, you can get classic pants that have no exterior pockets, which can help to create a smooth and flattering silhouette when teamed with longer, close-fitting tops.
Monochrome outfits will always form part of a strong capsule wardrobe, especially given that they offer lots of potential to mix and match. One of the most stylish outfit choices this year, however, is to wear all one color from head to toe and then enhance the look with different textures. Gradient color transitions are also hugely stylish and easy to wear, as is wearing slightly different tones of the same color to create an outfit. It is usually best to wear the darker shades on the areas of your body that you are least confident about to create the most flattering effect.
Traditionally, monochrome was confined to black and white, but this is no longer the case. Modern monochrome simply means sticking to one color. Bright colors can work particularly well - if you are brave enough, of course.
This is one of the most flattering items around, and there are versions to suit all heights and body types. It is a super-feminine choice, and these skirts look simply stunning with heels. The modern pencil skirt is also created in a much more wearable way, putting an end to the sexy originals that looked great but left you hardly able to bend or walk.
A great pantsuit is another hugely versatile fashion choice, and it is easy to choose a version that emphasizes your assets and hides any flaws that you think you might have. Today’s pantsuits don’t have to look like serious workwear, either. There are plenty of variations available that add a less-serious, more feminine touch to what was once quite a "masculine" look.
Peplum tops and dresses
The frill of a peplum dress or top , such as this Pink Sateen Peplum Blouse, is a hugely flattering option and is a great way to hide minor figure flaws that may make you feel less confident than you should. Try a white peplum top over a dark skirt or pair of pants. It would also look stunning with a well-cut pair of jeans and a pair of heeled shoes or sandals.
