The key to looking super sophisticated is being effortlessly stylish. Whether you’re dressing for dinner with the girls or your Saturday shopping trip, you’ll need a selection of key wardrobe staples to create a perfectly polished and oh-so stylish outfit with none of the effort! Thanks to QUIZ Clothing, here’s how you can master the tricky trend
Your Go-To Knits
Snow has arrived and winter is officially here — knitwear season has begun! Cableknit, stripes and oversized jumpers are the biggest trends this season. Having some staple knitwear pieces in your wardrobe is essential for the colder months and can keep your outfits on fleek.
Jumper DressesJumper dresses are perfect for a chic cold weather look. There is no time wasted choosing matching garments and with long, knitted sleeves, there’s no need to scour your closet for a complementing coat either.
If you suspect a day date with the girls could lead to evening cocktails, wear yours with over-the-knee boots to give your look a formal lift. If you’re in the mood to show off your curves, wrap a chunky belt around your dress to nip your waist in.
High Neck Knits
Layering is a simple way of upgrading any jumper and creating a fabulous look. It is pretty self-explanatory and is achieved by wearing a polo neck underneath a square-necked top. Couple with your favourite pair of jeans and ankle boots to fully master the look.
You can even introduce layering to your work wardrobe — wear a turtle neck under a smart blazer to create a smart and cosy look.
The Must-Have BootsEvery girl needs a great pair of ankle boots, and sock boots are a popular choice this season. They feature a pointed toe, high heel and textured fabric that fits to the ankle. They are pull on for extra ease and can be paired with jeans during the day time and a stylish skirt for a night on the town.
Black is a go-to colour for us all, so it goes without saying that you should have a pair of black ankle boots in your wardrobe. Choose a pair with a chunky heel so that they’re suitable for day and night time.
With the right accessories, you can transform one great outfit into many different looks. Take statement earrings for example; tassel, chunky metal and huge hoops will complement most outfits this season. Keep them in your bag to slip in for after-work drinks.
When it comes to your bag, think small leather bags and backpacks. Black is an ideal option to go for if you’re hoping to use it every day; buy one with a cute pattern on to keep things interesting. Or purchase a brightly coloured one such as red or gold and buy matching shoes – pair with jeans and a dressy top for a cute look.
Who said dressing for the new season was difficult!? Simply purchase a few staple pieces for your wardrobe and dress them up or down for each occasion.
