When it comes to looking fashionable and professional, all you really need is a few great staple pieces in your closet. Timbercreek Communities has four budget-friendly closet staples that every young professional should own.

Black Suit

A black suit will never go out of style and that’s something to look for when it comes to staple items. Because it’s a classic piece and you're less likely to get tired of it quickly, you should consider a black suit that’s higher quality. It will last longer and it usually sits better on the body. The nice thing about a black suit is that you can wear the two pieces as separates and make your outfit look more casual without the jacket.

White Or Cream blouse

A simple but well-made blouse should be in everyone’s closet. It looks good with anything including trousers, jeans or skirts. Looking professional and chic is effortless with a white or cream blouse. You can change up your look by simply adding a piece of jewellery, a scarf or even just by tucking the blouse in or out.

A Striped Shirt

If you don’t already own one, buy yourself a striped shirt. It’s a nice change from a solid-colour top and it can be dressed up or down. Wear it with black dress pants underneath a denim or leather jacket, or tucked into a pencil skirt. No matter which way you go, it always looks great. If you’re worried about wearing horizontal stripes, pick a darker colour or thinner stripes.

Black Pumps And Professional Flats

When it comes to shoes, there are two things that should be in your closet: black pumps and flats. Why? Black heels go with everything and you never know when you’ll need them. Whether it’s for a formal event or an interview, they are good to have. Plus you don’t have to spend a fortune to own some. Professional flats are amazing because you can dress them up or down. They are appropriate for any occasion and they are comfortable enough to wear every day, all day.

Large Structured Handbag

If you could only own one purse to meet all your needs, it should be a well-structured handbag. They are stylish, versatile and perfect if you have to transition from the office to a dinner party. They also never really go out of style -- which is perfect when it comes to staple fashion items. You can tote your iPad, laptop and makeup bag in one bag without having to worry about squeezing everything in it.

Happy shopping from Timbercreek! We hope you put together a killer wardrobe with these fashion staples! To find your home with Timbercreek Communities, please visit our website.
