Trends are a great way to enjoy your fashion, but sometimes a gal just needs an easy way to look stylish and sexy without having to plan every single outfit she wears. Classic pieces offer us a fuss-free way to look incredibly good, but they’re more than that – they give us timeless elegance, they give us the kind of sophistication that transcends what’s currently popular and goes on to show a woman with a passion for style who knows exactly how to present herself. Interested in what every diva needs in her closet to make sure she’s polished and beautiful every day? Then invest in some of these pieces and you’ll never run out of good things to wear.
Wearing a blazer is the key to pulling off business casual, and it’s generally a way to immediately make any outfit look professional. You can wear it over dresses, blouses and skirts, pants, and you can even pair it with jeans and you’ll get something to wear to the office. Every successful woman should have a blazer in her wardrobe – it’s simply a staple that will make you look slimmer and more polished, and it can even be made more fun if you pick a suit jacket in a bright color. Red blazer over your grey business dress? From bland to gorgeous in under two seconds!
Technically another office wardrobe staple, but pencil skirts are far too sexy to be worn only for work. They hug your curves in all the best ways and if you wear them with stilettos and red lipstick you’ll have a sexy look on your hands in no time.
There really isn’t a single thing that’s more flattering on every type of figure than a good fit-and-flare dress. Something that hugs you around the waist and then flares as it goes down in a great way to make you feel slim and incredibly feminine, and if you’ve never worn one you’ll be amazed at just how good it can look. You can style it up by belting it at the waist and pairing it with open-toed heels for a bit of a 60s vibe.
Every gal needs at least one good leather bag in her life. It looks luxurious, it looks stylish, and if you want to make sure it’s really versatile then find a tote bag, especially if you plan to wear it to work. Everything fits in a good tote, and it’s really easy to style your outfits with them and look very put-together if you’ve got a nice sleek piece gracing your arm.
A good beige trench coat is just straightforwardly cool. A piece that’s been fashionable ever since World War I, it has a really long history and is truly a classic if there ever was one. If you want to splurge, go for a Burberry coat as they practically invented it and make it better than anyone.
It just goes with everything and nothing will ever take its place as the most versatile piece of wardrobe in fashion. It’s impossible for it to go out of style, and no clothing collection will ever be complete without a good white t-shirt.
They elongate our legs visually and they are a great alternative to black or navy heels because they’re more versatile. There’s also something very modern about nude heels and it looks especially good when you’ve got a bit of a tan. It can definitely be your go-to shoe for any special occasion, but if you’re wearing an evening dress skip the pumps and stick to something sleeker like stilettos.
Yes, even for plus-size gals! Bodycon dresses look amazing and can actually make you look incredibly sexy if you pick the right fabric and pattern. A good striped dress paired with some statement earrings will give you a beautiful hourglass shape, but if you’re worried you can always wear Spanx or other shapewear underneath.
Little black dress
Yes, okay, we’ve got a lot of dresses on this list, sue us. Dresses are just really great! And how could we write this article without mentioning the mother of all staple wardrobe – the little black dress?

Cardigan for the family dinner, blazer for the office, metallic heels and red lipstick for the night out. All with the same dress!
You probably already have a lot of these pieces in your wardrobe, but if you don’t, it’s always a good idea to invest in them. They’re all very versatile and look universally good on most people, so gather around your girlfriends and go shopping for these great staples.
