What does it mean to be a “trendy” woman? First, it requires being up to date on the latest styles or influences in fashion. Second, a true trendy woman is able to add her own personal flair to all her outfits, while still maintaining that classic, traditional look. Still feeling stuck on where to start? Here are some essential items that can be found in your closet, and be transformed into an outfit that lives up to trendy standards!
Growing up, my mom would often leave for work in a Burberry trench coat, and I always thought it made her look great. Not just because it completed the outfit as a whole, but trench coats are a great closet essential for any trendy woman because they tend to flatter the body and create an hourglass-like figure, whether that is your body shape or not.

I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t own denim. It’s as common as a white t-shirt. Cropped denim is trending right now, because it serves virtually the same purpose as traditional denim, in the sense that it can be paired with a semi-formal date night outfit, or a casual “white t-shirt and blue jeans” outfit. Even if you don’t own cropped denim, you can create your own. Personally, I just roll up my denim jeans, and voila! – cropped denim. Jeans aren’t the only denim clothing that can be stylishly cropped: denim blouses and denim jackets are just a few others. The possibilities with denim are endless, just as they are on StyleIt!
Boots come in all shapes and sizes: camarguaise boots (ankle boots), knee-high boots, and riding boots (over-the-knee). With so many choices, boots can fit any occasion: school, shopping, holiday parties, and dates. It’s usually worn for a more casual look, with just a hint of sophistication. Boots have saved me on many occasions, and I owe them big time. If I have no idea what’s going on with the rest of my outfit, I can always count on my boots as a trendy closet essential to enhance the entire outfit, whether I’m wearing a casual long-sleeve athletic shirt or a fancy silk blouse. It’s as if you actually put time and effort into dressing nicely for class that day after pulling an all-nighter.
I won’t lie. Striped shirts have been my obsession for the past two years. It pairs perfectly with blazers, denim, and colored pants, but it also does just fine on its own. It’s also so versatile, for both casual and formal occasions. Striped shirts serve as the foundation on which the rest of the outfit can be built around and upon. Just a tip when shopping for striped shirts, once again, BE AWARE OF YOUR BODY SHAPE! It actually does matter if the shirt’s pattern has smaller stripes or larger stripes. It may be the difference between a flattering look, and a not-so-flattering one, so be informed! You can buy all the right clothes, but if you don’t find the right fit for YOUR body, it’s pointless.
