1. The Little White Blouse

A girl simply cannot go through life without a perfect white blouse— it’s classic, it’s professional, and better yet, it goes with EVERYTHING.  Dress this style essential up with a black skirt and a statement necklace or dress it down with jeans and flats.  Either way, a white blouse is the perfect solution for the days you’re running late and still want to look polished with minimal effort.

2. The Every-Day Dress

Often, the word dress is associated with fancy evening parties, but at Humble Chic, we love dresses that can be worn all the time.  The great thing about wearing a casual dress during the day is that looks polished while being cute at the same time.  There are many types of day dresses.  For a more casual look, try a maxi dress.  If you want to look more formal, try a shift or an a-line dress.  Finally, if you want to spice it up a bit, wear a hi-lo dress.

3. The Skinny Jean

There are many different types of skinny jeans, and it is important to find which one works best for you.  Dark wash denim is the classic choice for skinnies.  They are flattering and can be dressed up or down.  Another option is light wash skinnies, which are great for casual daytime looks.  If you’re feeling bold, try wearing colored jeans to perfect the color-blocked look, or printed jeans with a simple top.  Finally, experiment with low and high-rise waistlines to see which flatters your body type the most.

4. The Statement Necklace

A statement necklace adds life to every outfit and is a style essential ever woman should invest in.  Regardless of your top’s neckline, a statement necklace creates an eye-catching focal point and will make the look more polished.  With high necklines, try a longer necklace, and with a lower cut shirt, try a shorter chain length.  Statement necklaces also come in a variety of shapes and styles.  For example, geometric statement necklaces go best with simple tops.  Also, as a rule of thumb, the larger the necklace, the more minimalist the shirt or dress it’s paired with should be.

5. The Wristlet

The Wristlet

If you are going out for the night, you do not want to drag around a large purse on your shoulders.  That is why the wristlet clutch is the perfect accessory — it carries the essentials like your phone, wallet, and a lipstick – without weighing you down.  Wristlets are affordable and come in many different colors so you can be sure to match your outfit each time.
