- The little black dress
Even fashionista everywhere will tell you that a black dress is a must have. It works for every occasion from corporate parties to date night to a night out with the girls. It works with everything from blazers, a printed jacket and don’t forget a killer pair of shoes. Black is the ultimate neutral color and you can make it work with anything.

- One good designer handbag
Every woman deserves one high quality handbag. Yes, they do cost a fortune but it is an investment that you can make last years as long as you take care of it. Designer bags are typically made with high quality materials and if you get a neutral shade it can work with everything.
- A killer pair of shoes
Get yourself a nice pair of classic black pumps that look smoking hot and that you can wear with anything. You don’t need to blow the rent on Jimmy Choo’s or Louboutins (but go ahead if you can afford it). Find a pair that fits, looks good and is in a black or nude color. These can be the go to shoes for whatever the occasion.
- The perfect piece of jewellery
Find something that is simple yet sophisticated that works with almost everything. Find a nice bracelet, some diamond stud earrings or a nice ring, any of which will work with anything. If money is tight find a good imitation piece or something with semi-precious ends instead of diamonds.
- A Timeless Timepiece
A good quality watch can last forever, so save up and get the right piece. A watch can define your style as much as any piece of jewellery or piece of clothing. You can pick up some incredibly beautiful designer watches second hand that won’t break the bank, but still give you the style and sophistication you are looking for.
These are just the basics to get your wardrobe started off right. These are timeless classics you will only ever have to buy once and they will last forever.
