From Working Women to Homemaker: The 5 Must Haves in Your Closet

How many times have you opened your wardrobe and complained that you do not have anything remotely fashionable to wear? Your closet may be full of clothes, pretty bags, various shades of lipsticks and a box full of jewellery, and you still question the meaninglessness of things you have in your closet. A few fashion hacks can actually save the day; so next time when you are out shopping, make a list of 5 essential things that you must have in your wardrobe.

Whether you are a homemaker or the big boss of the corporate world, you will need an all-purpose versatile black bag which will team up flawlessly with all of your outfits. Oversized totes are in fashion right now; but the simple black bag has a timeless appeal to it. It is classy and is perfect for every kind of gathering.

You can be a Jimmy Choo fashionista or a Carrie Bradshaw when it comes to shoes. But that single pair of black heels is all you need to feel good when you wear your western outfits. And like Carrie would say, that once you stand tall, nothing can stop you. Those black heels will up the style quotient and add a dash of much-needed glamour in your outfit. If you are heading for post-work drinks with your colleagues or gathering for a luncheon date with your besties, the black heels will make your appearance sexy and classy at the same time.

Indian summers are harsh and women should be prepared with all their gears; one of the primary essentials being a pair of good sunglasses. You can choose between Wayfarers and Aviators, but select something which will suit your personality and your style. Aviators have a vintage touch and flaunt an androgynous look. The rainbow mirror glares are in fashion right now, but if you are a lover for age-old classic style, an Aviator or a Wayfarer will simply do the trick.

Some fashion hacks are simply classic; owning a good red lipstick from a reputed brand will add tons of glamour to your makeup. Finding the right shade for your face can be pretty daunting, but once you possess it, any dull lifeless day would look cheerful. You do not need to wear makeup, but the bright red lipstick can help you get out of the not-in-the-mood-to-do anything mode to quick-to-get-up-and-ready-for-the-show mood!

A scarf is not just a fashion accessory; it is something that describes your mood adequately. It can be used as a belt, a headgear, a bandana and even used a top. This multi-purpose accessory is definitely a must-have in your closet. Any given a day, a white top paired with a silk scarf can enhance your style quotient. You can opt for stoles as well which are an in-between scarves and dupattas. If silk is not exactly your favourite fabric, you can have them in cotton as well, but cotton scarves tend to become crushed after one use.
