If you don't have a leather jacket in your wardrobe, it's time to make the splurge. A biker jacket is a classic cut that looks great with anything — really! Toss over a flowing dress, top your favorite white tee, or swing over a cashmere sweater. It will last for years and always be on trend.

A good pair of jeans that properly fit will always look good — and can work at the office or out on a dinner date. Going with a classic cut ensures they won't be out of style next season. And it's not about the size but how they wear on your body.

Although an investment, a sturdy pair of boots goes with every wardrobe essential. Wear with skirts, skinny jeans, flowing dresses, or jumpers to finish any outfit.

Not sure what to wear? Opt for a full skirt. Flirty, feminine, and easy to wear, a full skirt matches with anything from a printed blouse to a cotton tee. Dressed up or down, a full skirt is a smart, hardworking addition to your wardrobe.

The Right Bag
Even if you're on a budget, splurging for the perfect bag is a smart investment. Pick one that matches your overall style so it looks fabulous with whatever you're wearing. And think about size — you want all your essentials with you!

I have a scarf in my bag, in the glove of my car, and tucked in the pockets of my favorite jackets ready to toss on whenever needed. Whether sheer and printed or for keeping warm, a scarf is a quick way to add some color (or cover unruly hair or a stain on your jacket) at a moment's notice. Start a collection and disperse.

The Perfect Hat
You know those days your hair isn't working in your favor? The perfect hat is your better-day solution. A cap adds a bit of dramatic flair to whatever you're wearing while wonderfully covering locks.

Having a few signature accessories helps tie it all together. A statement necklace or pair of earrings adds bling to anything. And they can totally transform what you're wearing, giving your favorite shirt a complete makeover.

Give your heels a break and reach for flats instead. A lower heel allows you to walk just a bit faster — and even run if needed. That's hardworking.
