When seasons change, many people tend to replace most, if not all of their wardrobe. While spring is a season of new beginnings a complete revamp of your closet every three months is not good for the environment or your wallet! The Fashion In The City Team has compiled a list of must-have clothing articles that you can purchase once and wear all year round!
This one may seem a little obvious at first. Who doesn’t have a pair of jeans in their closet? The trick here is to have at least one pair of jeans that is wearable all year-round, not just during Fall or Spring season. Keep the word “timeless” in mind as you shop — this piece should be beyond trends. Our team recommends a lighter wash rather than blue, as it is more flattering with different colored tops. You may also want to consider a straight cut or skinny cut with no rips or embellishments on the legs — but go with whatever suits you best!
2. Knit Sweaters
Sweaters might be the trickiest item of this list. It’s important to choose a sweater that isn’t too thick or too thin, too warm or not warm enough in the winter. If you’re a fan of bold prints, feel free to choose one to make this piece pop in your wardrobe! If you want to play it safe, we suggest a neutral color as opposed to a bright color, to ease the pairing during the seasons.
A good pair of boots should not only suit you every season, but also last you for many years. As far as pairing any type of shoes, you can never go wrong with black or brown colors! Choose soles and heels based on your personal style, but a good year-round bootie is better as a low heel.
4. Shorts and Skirts
Classic cuts of shorts and skirts are never out of fashion, even when the temperatures drop! You can pair a good pair of shorts or skirt with thick, lined stockings to keep yourself warm. Pieces like these are useful to elongate the legs and silhouette, even when you have to layer up to stay warm! Wardrobe decisions become much simpler when the warmer months approach. Just slip them on and you’re good to go!
Thick knit scarves are winter staples, but it’s harder to think of a place for them during the Summer or Spring. However, thinner scarves, such as those made of satin, can have a place in your outfit at any time of the year! Whether they are short to tie around the neck or long enough to use as a shawl, scarves are a good way to accessorize your wardrobe, at any time of the year!
