These are the articles of clothing you NEED in your wardrobe

Are you looking to complete your wardrobe? These few pieces of clothing can truly upgrade your wardrobe to the next level. 

Boot-Cut Jeans 

Boot-cut jeans have been around since the 1960s, and they became super popular in the 1990s, for both men and women. Instead of wearing boring old skinny or straight jeans, you should consider wearing these instead. 

Boot-cut jeans work great with western boots as well as any kind of shoe. You should consider whether you like high-rise, mid-rise, or low-rise jeans as well. If you want to go for the 1990s-2000s look, you should go for a pair of low-rise boot-cut jeans. 

Accessorizing with boot-cut jeans is surprisingly easy. If you are wearing a low-rise pair, you might want to wear it with a long-fitted top. With mid-rise and high-rise boot-cut jeans, you can pretty much wear any top, from a baggy t-shirt to a tank top with a jacket. Boot-cut jeans also fit super well with a zip-up jacket.

A good pair of boot-cut jeans are the Women’s Wrangler Retro Bailey High Rise style, and you can buy them at the Wrangler website. Another good one is the Regular Fit Raised Denim Jean, which can be found at Rock and Roll Denim.

Statement Belt 

A statement belt can be something as simple as a belt with an unusual color, like pink or red, or as complex as a studded belt. An interesting belt draws attention to your outfit and makes it stand out. It adds a lot to a simple outfit. 

You can wear a statement belt with jeans or even on a dress. And adding accessories that match, with the color or style of your statement belt, will help pull your outfit together. For example, if you wear a red belt, you can accessorize with a red beanie or a pair of red shoes.

A great statement belt is the Three-Row Silver Pyramid Belt from Studs and Spikes. You might also like the Multicolored Patchwork Belt from BRUCLE.

Leather Jacket 

Leather jackets have been around since the 1920s. Leather adds a great touch to any outfit, and it makes your outfit look “cool”. The most common color for leather jackets is black, but you can get a red or cream-colored one to make a statement.

Leather jackets match well with jeans. I think light-colored jeans match better than dark-colored, and if you are going for a 1950s greaser look, you should pair your leather jacket with a white tank top.

If you are looking for a good leather jacket, try any jacket at Wilsons Leather. If you’re looking for a bomber jacket instead, one great place to look is Alpha Industries.

Tank Top 

Tank tops are great for layering, and you can wear anything over them. You can wear a jacket, a sweater, or even another shirt on top of a tank top. This layering style was super popular in the 2000s, especially with brightly-colored tank tops. 

You can get the ribbed tank top or the spaghetti-strap design, depending on what you’re wearing it with. The ribbed tank tops are great for under jackets or even on their own. Spaghetti-strap tank tops are more for layering.

A great tank top is the Solid Basic Cami from the aeropostale website. You might also like this print tank top with designs at Solid Threads.

Jewelry

Jewelry makes a big impact on what you’re wearing, and it adds a touch of sparkle and interest to your outfit. Silver and gold jewelry is the safest option, because they match almost any color of outfit. 

Rings may be tiny and subtle, but they do stand out on a plain outfit. You can also choose chunky rings or thin rings, whichever suits you best. 

Have fun with it! You can even get a Batman ring, or a snake ring, to show off your personality! That is the whole point of style: to express your personality. So in the end, just have fun with it. 

You can get cute jewelry from basically anywhere, including TJ Maxx, Nordstrom Rack, and even Macy’s

Get your fit together, Nitros!
