When you throw out old fashion items to make room for trendier pieces, it’s more important to keep the right items in your wardrobe than it is to keep fewer pieces. The difficult decision comes in deciding what items to keep, especially when it comes to looking through your bottoms staples.
Between your skirts, shorts, and pants, which ones are the essentials you need in your closet? We believe you should keep at least one of the following in your wardrobe, no matter the season.
Casual shorts are perfect for casual days, obviously. But they’re also great for those days when you want to “cheat the system”. Pair them with a blazer or button down top and no one will never mistaken your casual look for being under-dressed.
Wide leg pants
When it’s not hot enough for shorts and not cold enough for pants, you can count on wide leg trousers to keep your body at the right temperature. This style is great when dressed up or down, with heels or with flats.
These bottom staples are perfect for when the weather calls for short shorts, but the occasion does not.
A dressy alternative to denim jeans is the skinny pant. Perfect for those days when you don’t feel like having denim pressed against your skin.
You may find yourself having to dress for an interview, conference, or fancy dinner. If that’s the case, a pencil skirt paired with a button down blouse can be your savior. Best of all, pencil skirts are flattering on most women and are great for dressing up or dressing down.
If you’re known for dressing up even for a quick bite with friends, you probably already own an A-line skirt, or two. If you don’t, know that as feminine as this style of skirt is, you can always pair it with a plain white t-shirt and baseball cap for a more casual look. You can also throw on a button down, long sleeve denim blouse for a chic approach. The great thing about A-line skirts is that they work for every season. Plus, they’re super fun to twirl in.
