Women, irrespective of their age, tribe and socio-econic status, love to look good. However, creating a total fresh look from the start can be an extremely challenging task for many women . When faced with all this wardrobe challenges and lack of ideas of what to wear, giving up should not be the next option. You don’t need to break the bank before putting together gorgeous outfits; all you need is inspiration and creativity. You can also use the essentials that you already have in your closet to create unique looks that will look perfectly for everyday wear. The basic fashion items women need in the wardrobe are; black skirt or trouser, shirts or blouses, dinner gown-long and short, Kimono jackets, jumpsuit, Shorts, jean, shoes- heels, flats and slippers. Bags and purse, jewellery , scarf and belts. All these can be dressed up for work or for casual outings.
But in choosing styles, whether you are buying from a boutique or making one from your favourite bespoke designer; patterns, designs, colours and prints on fabrics must be chosen wisely as these are what attracts and bring out the style. They also energise, inspire and gives designers new ideas and make them churn out beautiful creations.
