You do it all the time–open your closet doors and get overwhelmed by the cascade of clothing that falls out, most of it are those clothes that you never wear. We buy clothes because they are on sale, they look good on the models in the store, or they are the latest fashion. We pile them into our closets and then forget they are there, or they have gone out of fashion as soon as we get them home from the store. We have an abundance of clothing we don’t know what to do with, and “nothing to wear”.The smart thing to do to try and get your clothing budget in check, and make some room in your closet, is to go back to the classics and have a few basic articles that you can use in a variety of ways, not just in one. A few pieces of clothing that are tried and true and very versatile can net you many days of wearing them in so many different styles, no one will ever know you wore it just recently.The main staple is a little black dress, of course. This can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Pair it with some really flashy heels and some brilliant silver jewelry, and you have a cocktail party ready outfit. Put on some ballet flats and style your hair casually for coffee with the girls at the corner café. The versatility of the little black dress is great for almost any occasion with a little creativity in your accessories.Every woman should have a really great fitting pair of blue jeans, which she can also dress up or down, to suit the needs of the activity. Blue jeans that fit a woman really well can go from a power meeting when paired with a really great blazer, or put them with a pretty t-shirt to head to the mall. You will look great in either, because jeans can really make your figure look its best when they fit perfectly.A couple of button up shirts in neutral colors such as black and white can go a long way in creating several outfits through the week, and into the weekend. You can pair up a fancy white blouse with a suit jacket and matching skirt or pants to form your work uniform, looking tidy and professional. You can take that white shirt to the weekend with that great pair of jeans and head out to a casual restaurant to meet up with that blind date. You can pair a black blouse with a flirty skirt and hit up the bars and clubs.A few items of clothing that are well thought out and versatile can go a long way in your wardrobe with just a few easily found accessories to change the look completely. You can pare down your overflowing closets to simple, timeless pieces that pair well with those things you just can’t get rid of, to make any number of gorgeous outfits that can go flawlessly from weekday to weekend!
