Have you ever woken up in the morning, sit in front of your wardrobe and started thinking- "What do I wear today?" I face that dilemma every single day because my work outfit has to fit my prerequisites. My go to items are usually blazers (although I don't wear them to work), printed pants and black hijab.
A blazer or an outerwear can instantly elevate any boring outfit. Put your cardigans away and pick up a blazer instead. Sometimes a blazer can look too overwhelming on a small frame. I personally have issues with blazers that have shoulder pads. Also, I try to look for blazers which are slightly longer.
I swear I have more pants than tops. I also have more printed pants than solid coloured ones. I wear my printed pants to work most of the time. I swear I overuse them. Pair them with a simple black top and you look like you spent hours to get ready. Kidding but really it is a statement piece everyone should get their hands on.
I don't like fussing over the colour of my shawl. A few months ago, I had my printed shawls phase. That phase is officially over. More often than not, I choose black over all the other colours. As you may have noticed, I love my bright lipsticks. I believe that I should not wear the same shade of lipstick as my shawl or that it has to complement. So to combat that sometimes annoying decision, I stick to my black shawl. That way, I can wear whatever colour I want on my lips.
So those are my must have items in my wardrobe.
