5 Classic Wardrobe Investments

What makes an item a wardrobe essential? When you finally discover the perfect piece that provides you with a solid foundation for building infinitely interchangeable outfits...that's how you know! Whether you're streamlining your #OOTD style or putting together a timeless collection that will transcend trends, every modern wardrobe requires a few good staples. Today on Zeena Uncovered, we're sharing our top five wardrobe investments for curating the closet of your dreams. 

#1 - A Designer Bag

Nothing makes a statement like an elegant designer bag. Besides keeping your belongings safely by your side, a great bag with a subtle-yet-famous logo will instantly elevate any outfit. Choose a neutral color that will go from the office to the weekend and doesn't scream for attention...otherwise, it wouldn't be a classicwould it?

#2 - Dark Wash Denim  

Dark wash jeans that fit, support, and flatter your figure are one of those wardrobe staples you'll find yourself wearing over and over. Last minute dinner invitation? Brunch with the girls? Impromptu family gathering? No sweat. Wide-leg, curvy or straight, slip into a pair of your darkest blue jeans and you've already won half the "what do I wear" battle.

#3 - A Tailored Top

How does style become effortless? When you look as comfortable as you feel. We love the Taylor Dress Shirt for too many reasons to count, but to name a few -- the simple modest design, feminine A-line flare, and lightweight material that allows you to layer to your heart's desire. Paired with a blazer, cardigan, waistcoat or sweater, use this multi-functional top as a springboard to easily create 100s of outfits you'll love.

#4 - Sensational Shoes

Never underestimate the power of a killer pair of shoes! Shoes have that special something that can add spark to even the most casual outfit. Whether you choose a neutral, a tall boot or a loafer, search for high-quality materials that will last a lifetime. Show a little personality with the design, color, or heel height and you'll always have the right shoes to make your style pop!

#5 - A Classic Blazer

Day or night, a classic blazer will stay on rotation season after season. Layer with a tailored blouse for an office chic look or style with a Basic Tank and jeans for something more casual. We love using a blazer as a sleek cover-up with a maxi dress to add a clean edge on formal occasions.
