Chances are we can all think of that one person we know that never has an “off” day.  Is this achievable for us mere mortals who have careers, kids, and carpools to think about?  Absolutely! It’s all in the details.  Here’s a list of 5 essentials to have in your style arsenal that will guarantee a great look for most occasions.

1. A Blazing Blazer

Nothing instantly revs up your style amplitude like adding an impeccably tailored blazer to your T-Shirt and Jeans combo!  A great blazer can take you from day wear to happy hour with the girls in a flash.

2. A Classic Pair of Diamond Studs

 Add a bit of bling without overwhelming your look by investing in a pair of diamond stud earrings.  Need something easier on the wallet?  Try white topaz or cubic zirconia, you can achieve the same sparkle without the hefty price tag.

3. A Fantastic Watch
Know what time it is and look great while doing it!  Invest in a timepiece that can transcend both work wear and date gear.
4. A Quality Handbag

Handbags add dimension to your look.  Choose a genuine leather material that feels soft yet sturdy.  Looking for an animal friendly choice? There are a range of well-made faux leather bags that rival the real deal. Always make sure the hardware and stitching are in place, this ensures the bag will last a long time.

5. A Fabulous Shoe
Shoes can make or break a polished look.  I recommend investing in a quality, soft leather pair of heels.  Not good at the balancing act? Don’t worry; you don’t have to teeter in towering stilettos to achieve a great look.  Kitten heels are all the rage, giving you a little lift without the aches and pains.  Go for the heel height that’s comfy for you. 

 You need not break the bank for fab footwear either.  Like to hunt for a great deal?  Try an afternoon of thrift shopping. Designer discount stores like TJ Maxx or DSW have a fantastic selection that is fashion forward and budget friendly.
