10 Things Every Girl Boss Should Have in Her Wardrobe

You are a woman, you are a boss, and you are running your company like a boss – literally. But you can’t just keep wearing the same plain Jane pantsuit. Your wardrobe needs to reflect you, even as a boss.

You need to have fun with it, enjoy it. So, I am here today to give you a few tips and tricks on what you should have in your wardrobe to look and feel like the fabulous boss you are. Here are ten wardrobe essentials every girl boss should have in her wardrobe.

1 The suit

Yes, I know I mentioned you can’t wear the same pain suit every day, but this is a staple in any proud girl boss wardrobe. Whether together or apart, any great fitting suit will help you look strong – like you mean business, because you do.

So go out and buy a new, tailor-fitted suit that is a neutral color (like gray, navy blue, or black) so it can match all of your colorful tops and shoes.

2 Blouses

As a girl boss, you probably already have the boring collared shirt. And let me guess, it’s the accountant blue. Throw this puppy out in favor of a blouse. Blouses are your best friends as a girl boss, not only because they look professional, but because of their pair perfectly with your pant suit pants and some pumps.

And really, you can go with any color and style as long as it is not too revealing (that means keeping the girls in check, ladies). So go crazy with color, fit, and style with this piece.

3 Dresses

Moving on to dresses. Yes, you should have some dresses but why not play it up a bit? Get rid of that plain black dress, the sweater dress, and whatever another boring thing you have shoved in your work section of the closet and trade it in for something fun. Wrap dresses are perfect, easy to wear and look great.

They also come in a ton of patterns and colors to show off your specific style. If you want something less clingy, then grab a cute peplum dress or a nice fit and flare. Both this style will show off your curves and give you the air of confidence any girl boss should have.

4 Stylish lingerie sets

This one is strange, but I swear by it. Matching lingerie sets. I don’t know about you, but when I am wearing something cut, frilly, and matching under my powerful boss persona, I feel more confident and in control. Try it out and make a stop of Victoria’s Secret and find yourself a cute little set you love. Trust me, it works.

5 Pencil skirt

Speaking of bottoms, a pencil skirt is one of the wardrobe essentials every girl boss should have. Pencil skirts give off a powerful vibe like no other piece of clothing on this list – and they make your butt look amazing.

Plus, you can still pair it with anything else on this list, even if you pick a bright cobalt blue, red, or even just plain black (but please have fun a choose a colorful one).

6 Pea coats

This one should be obvious, but just in case, I am throwing it in. Every great, fashionable boss should have a pea coat. Pea coats are warm, professional, and give you a great look. Grab black, tan, or some other neutral color to always go with all of your outfits and throw it on when it gets cold to keep warm.

7 Pumps

Now it is time to move on to accessories. Every good boss girl should have multiple pairs of pumps. Especially a black pair. Black goes with everything and looks as sleek as sleek can get.

But that does not mean you can’t still have some fun with your shoes, either. After you pick up some black pumps, you can go crazy with texture and color and grab whatever draws your girly eye.

8 Flats

Now that you have got pumps, you need some flats. Not every girl boss can rock a four-inch pump, as we know. We would all die if we even attempted to, honestly. So go out and grab yourself some black flats as your staple and maybe a couple other colors just for funsies.

9 Bags

Now for the bag. You need something sleek, something that will match with everything else on this list, no matter the color or texture. I would suggest a black Michael Kors bag – something simple, leather, and cute. If you can’t afford MK, just look for copy cats at discount stores – you will find something exactly alike for half the price.

10 Statement necklaces

And finally, every great girl boss needs some great necklaces. My personal favorite is a strand of pearls simple yet classic, giving off an air of confidence and class. But if you want something more fun, you can pick up a few statement necklaces to match the rest of your bold wardrobe at any store in your mall. Just remember to keep it neutral for the most part, maybe picking up one or two for those days you do decide to wear your pant suit.

Reasons Why Every Woman Should Have a Little Black Dress

The little black dress (LBD) is one piece of garment that all women must-have. It’s a closet staple for a reason. For a century, the little black dress has become a versatile wardrobe essential that doesn’t go out of fashion.

It all started when Coco Chanel introduced the LBD in the 1920s. During that time, black was only worn for mourning. Chanel was inspired by the uniforms of the nuns, everyday maids, and shop girls, which lead Vogue to publish her simple sketching of the Ford dress with long narrow sleeves and a string of pearls.

Fast forward to a couple of decades to Christian Dior’s New Look – an attempt to revive France’s fashion scene during the post-war era. Coco Chanel used the little black dress into a more sensual and provocative style than it was used before, leading to a number of Hollywood stars adopting the look. There’s no better example of this than Audrey Hepburn’s dress in the classic 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Since then, celebrities, royalties, and the general public adopted the little black dress. It’s one of the rare examples of clothing garments that stood the test of time and has never gone out of fashion. Up to this day (and perhaps even until the end of time), the LBD remains a quintessential piece of item for every woman.

Why is it so special? Here are the reasons why every woman must own at least one of it in their wardrobe:

1. It’s a classic piece.

The little black dress is a timeless outfit – it never goes out of style. It has been worn by Coco Chanel to Beyoncé to Princess Diana to Kim Kardashian and all women in between. It doesn’t matter who you are – a little black dress can make you look elegant and classy if you just wear it right. Wearing a little black dress can make you feel fabulous without needing to wear something pricey and shimmery. However, for the style to work on you, you must choose a dress that fits you right. Remember, not all of the latest styles and cuts can match your body shape.

2. It’s discreet.

Some people like pointing out if you have worn the same dress. Though there’s nothing wrong with that (hello, we all have washing machines!), sometimes you just don’t want to be seen wearing the same thing. When you have a trusty little black dress though, people won’t have much to comment about it. A little black dress is something understated that no one won’t suspect that you’re running out of dresses to wear. You can just wear different accessories, and pair it with different shoes, and you’ll look like you had a different outfit.

3. It’s versatile.

A little black dress can be worn in different locations and occasions. You can wear it to dinner, to date nights, to work, to professional events, to the funeral, to the bar, to a party – the list is endless. All you need is the right accessories, the right kind of jewelry, plus the right type of makeup. If you had a busy day at work, then you have a small gathering with your friends at night, you’ll be alright with a little black dress. You can wear one little black dress with shiny jewelry and heels for a fancy party, and then pair it with fancy gladiators and a leather jacket for a casual night out.

4. It’s practical.

Since a little black dress works for any event, it’s a practical garment of choice. Some dresses are just meant for upscale gatherings, while some are too casual and only suitable for day outs. A little black dress only needs to be mixed and matched with something you already have like scarves, blazers, cardigans, coats, shoes, and hats, and you’ll create different looks with one dress.

5. It can function as a last-minute dress.

Another helpful reason to love the LBD is it can serve as your emergency dress. Every woman knows the struggle of choosing the right dress for the very last minute. There are many times that we have to attend unexpected occasions and find nothing to wear, like some random occasion that you forgot or a sudden party at work. You may even be called to go to a certain meeting that’s not too formal nor casual either. If you have a trusty black dress, then you don’t have to worry.

6. It can make you look and feel glamorous.

There are nights that we don’t feel so good about ourselves, but a little black dress can help with that. The magic of the LBD is it can make anyone look glamorous as long as you choose the cut that’s most flattering for you. Wear it with the right accessories, and everything else will be a matter of attitude.

7. It flatters every body.

People have differences, but when it comes to the black dress, you’re less likely to find someone who doesn’t like it at all, because LBD looks good on everyone. Perhaps only the people who don’t like it are those who like to make a statement with their outfits, and they don’t like going with the classic styles. Also, when you reach a certain age, you may start to feel that some colors and prints don’t look good on you anymore, but with an LBD, you can never go wrong.

Black is slimming, so a little black dress helps with curvy people as the color complements the curves. For petite and already slim ladies, the LBD is also very flattering.
