My advice to you is don’t buy anything on impulse, try to look around and see what your best options are. I guarantee, you will save yourself a lot of money this way. Head over to Urban Planet and Suzy Shier to check out all their great deals on the latest trends.


A black blazer is a wardrobe staple that can be worn all year round and truly never goes out of style. You can wear it to the office, a job interview or a work event. You’ll find that a plain black blazer starts to become your go-to more and more as you mature. A good blazer will make you look put together even if you just wear it with a t-shirt and a blazer. They’re super trendy – either as a separate or a suit. The blazer is a versatile piece that you can easily dress up or dress down. Pair it with a black pencil skirt and pumps for work, or wear it with a blouse, denim jeans and pumps for after work shenanigans.

If you’re getting tired of your cotton shirts switch over to a silk top. It can be just as versatile when used as the centerpiece for work looks to modern boho looks and everything in between. One thing is for sure silk blouses can last you lifetime, if you take care of them properly.  A silk blouse is definitely a timeless wardrobe staple that you’ll want to invest in. Whether you’re on your way to work or in need of a last minute look to head into town for dinner. I would pair this top with vintage denim jeans and simple heels. If you would to dress it up more, I’d opt for trousers.

Skinny Cargo Pants

Give your jeans a break, and try out cargo pants. They’re super trendy and since utilitarian style is back, why not give them a try. Cargo pants are quite comfortable and suit your favorite everyday essentials. I would keep it casual and pair these pants with a white tee, a chunky cardigan and either trainers or boots. OR if you wanted to add a feminine touch to your cargo pants, I would style them with a feminine blouse, further compliment the look with statement jewelry, and some heels. Perfect if you’re off for lunch or a casual outing with friends.

Wool Coat 

They say finding the proper winter coat is like dating and I couldn’t agree more. Finding something worth fully committing to for a couple months requires knowing what you like, a little bit of luck and most importantly making sure it keeps you warm during chilly weather. Wool coats are a great investment piece that will be worth all your money, especially because now there are great options no matter your budget. The beauty of the wool coat is that you can style it with almost any outfit, now that’s a win-win situation. Throw it over a sweater, denim jeans and sneakers or rock it to work over a tailored blazer, trousers and boots for more of a polished look.

Turtleneck Sweater 

A turtleneck sweater are cozy and practical, and have been upgraded to the chicest of winter essentials. Yes, they’re still quite effective when a sudden cold front comes rolling in, but they have also become the foundation of many outfits. Wear it tucked into a long skirt, pair it with high waisted vinatge denim jeans, layered under a coat or tucked into track pants. The best part about turtlenecks is that they come in many different styles and colors, and are extremely versatile to style.

Teddy Coat 

Teddy coats are what every girl needs in their closet during the winter. They’re cozy, warm, snuggly, and above all the trendiest coat of the season. If you plan on investing on one I’d go for the classic camel teddy coat, it’s such statement and goes well with pretty much everything. Elevate your typical day look and pair this coat with a sleek pair of black leather pants and a colorful striped sweater or turtleneck. I promise you this is a coat you’ll wear all season long after you’ve worn it once.

Knit Sweater Poncho

A knit poncho is the way to go this winter; and although they can be a bit tricky to style after you’ve got it down, you won’t want to let go. A poncho always requires something to be worn underneath it, like long sleeve t-shirt or a sweater. You can also wear it over a collard shirt which creates a smarter, office-approved look. Pair it with skinny denim jeans or leather pants and boots.
