  1. Whether hippy, grunge, minimalistic, retro, I think a pair of wet look leggings :) they go with everything and instantly make you look fashionable.

    A hat and red lipstick. All you need, really. Then even jeans and a tshirt looks great.

    As someone already said: the Black ( or navy) Blazer is really classy.
    - A good, well cut leather jacket (black or light brown)
    - Ballet flat with a bit of heals (2 cm)
    - Some Fur ( or true looking Faux fur) eather as hat or coat.

    • The indispensable little black dress--one that packs well is important
    • A good wool coat that goes well with dresses or jeans--I live in a hot climate and I still need one for travel
    • Good underwear-- lays the foundation for every outfit and can make you feel pretty even in a severe suit

    If you have fantastic shoes and jackets/coats you don´t need much more (I´m also for good underwear though ;)).

    A pair of leather boots (vegan ones for vegan girls - I´m a hypocrite, I love leather though I´m veggie *hides*) Anyway: One with heels, one without - save money for that or talk to your granddad at christmas or whatever if you´re totally broke - every girl needs a pair of expensive shoes imho ;)

    A black blazer that is not looking cheap (not those crumpled, badly sewed ones you can buy at the discounters - go for second hand if you don´t have money and try to find a decent one)

    A wool coat if you live in an area that has winter. This depends on your taste. But make sure its wool and well sewed.

    A leather jacket. Same here, don´t buy crap and don´t buy too small ones (haha I think this won´t happen to many girls in this place, but I see it a lot and its unflattering).

    Its all about good material and cut. Its better to have some decent basics than a ton of clothes that has awful quality. If you can afford tons of high quality clothes - good for you :grin:

    Then buy a lipstick that suits you, care for your hair and skin, find a style that fits with who you are and you can´t do much wrong anymore :)

    My opinion:

    - Black blazer - Make sure you can button it and fits well. It's worth buying a good quality one.
    - Skinny jeans (black, blue and grey). Make sure they fit well. If you're tiny get them tailored.
    - Basic vest tops (black, grey, white) plain colours. Make sure they're good quality.
    - Small stud earrings
    - White shirt or blouse
    - Flats - Good quality ones be it leather or faux leather, and I don't mean the ones from H&M, they're tacky. I personally prefer suede. Plain colours with a simple bow.
    - Flat shoes besides ballerinas, maybe loafers or oxfords.
    - Good heels. I prefer stiletto heels in black
    - Good quality underwear
    - Little black dress (a few other colours is good for the evenings)
    - Good watch - A black/brown simple leather strap is good. Or stainless sliver and gold (without colored gemstones and funky face dial etc).
    ones.
    - If you wear tights make sure they're good quality (a lot of them collect hair and are very cheap looking when you look up close). As soon you get a hole or a ladder in them, chuck em. If you wear skin coloured tights, make sure it matches your skin tone, rather than getting ones with a tan effect (if you insist then tan your face too).
    - Simple chic everyday bag and evening bag.
    - Boots. I love both flat and stiletto heel boots. Plain, simple and chic. Leather or quality faux leather.
    - Dresses that aren't too short (if you're in a workplace etc). Or tops that aren't too revealing. It's a number one rule but you won't believe how many girls I see with short dresses or inappropriate clothing in clinics.

    General rule: Keep things simple, plain colours and generally wear a few colours that go well together. It's worth investing in quality pieces.

    - a well-fitting white shirt that buttons up all that way without "popping" (moreso for bustier ladies).
    - a dark coloured blazer: black or navy - or both; different weights for different seasons.
    - a warm wool or cashmere coat; dark colours are more eternally stylish but I do love a red or mustard ;) I tend to go for a length that hits mid-thigh.
    - leather jacket in a classic style; one in black, one in tan.
    - well-fitting jeans in dark denim and black; slightly high-waisted creates a more classic silhouette than low-rise. Find a cut that suits you :)
    - skirts: fitted high-waist-knee-length and A-line at mid-thigh, knee and midi length.
    - variety of hosiery!
    - leather boots: riding, ankle, heeled
    - killer stilettos
    - large leather tote/carry-all; again, timeless style and one that you can put your life in that goes with everything ;)
    - small evening bag
    - flattering dress; not too revealing but eternally sensual ;)
    - I love a good, classic hat - I love 1920s cloches, 1960s wool floppy hats, little straw hats... They can add a dressy element to an outfit, if used the right way :)
    - be well-groomed ;)
    - perfume! Complete the outfit with the right kind of lingering scent ;)

    (NB: leather can be replaced by faux or other materials, if and when required :))

    Yes! I'm poor and frugal as any uni student, and I agree that every girl needs one pair of gorgeous, high quality shoes. If it's an option, one pair of plain-ish heels and one pair of killer, fashion-as-art heels is excellent.

    The rest of your post is spot on too (hihi, serial matching-underwear-set hoarder ;)).

    I totally have nothing more to add but a nice pair of s strappy sandals
    I also invest in (real) leather shoes and bags because the quality is much better. I noticed that my best friend has 3times more clothes than me. But hers are all cheap, and they look like it.

    I really want some Louboutines (they are my reward when I reach my UGW), but I also save up for the final payment of my car :hmm:

    Don't know if anyone's put this yet - get a bra that fits and some matching pants. The four boobs look is... unflattering.
