Do You Have the Updated Essentials In Your Wardrobe?

It’s time for Creekside Fashions Wardrobe Essentials! Every season I think we all take stock of our wardrobe and make some decision about what we need, what we want and what we need to toss.  And although this past year we’ve been living more in sweatpants and leggings, it’s still a good idea to take stock of what essentials are missing from our wardrobe.  It’s the foundation that will allow us to combine styles and get much more mileage out of our wardrobe whether it’s for the office, working or being at home.

Having the essentials will make getting dressed so much easier and will give you a timeless wardrobe that will mix and match to suit your lifestyle.  Whether you need lounging at home looks, casual for shopping and just going out and about, work at home or the office, zoom meetings, or a little dressier just for fun or for when we can.… these are all staples that will work together for different looks that will last for years to come.


It has been a denim society for awhile now and jeans are not going out of style anytime soon.  The new must have style is high waisted with a straight easy leg that can be dressed up with heels or worn casually with sneakers.  Although lighter washes are trending, there is no wrong choice if you are leaning toward a darker or mid wash.  In fact, a dark wash skinny would also be an excellent choice.  Choose a style that works best for you and your body type.


A blazer is a total must have.  It can be styled up in so many ways to create the total look that you’re after and be so functional at the same time.  Perfect for the office or to throw on over your t shirt for a zoom meeting.  Great to throw on with your jeans to give you a more polished yet casual look.    It’s also a nice option for a jacket as we transition into the warmer weather.  And for dining on the patio you can throw it on over your cocktail dress!   

Let’s support the local restaurants and dine out on the patio in style!


The camisole is an absolute must have and you may need more than one of these.  It can be worn as a layering piece under jackets, shirts, sweaters, and dresses for extra warmth and coverage.  And can stand on its own in warmer weather with jeans, sweat pants, dress pants, and skirts.  Black and white would be good choices to start off with.  But then, you might want to choose a pop of colour.


A great pair of black, comfortable leggings is a versatile, functional and must have piece in your wardrobe.  It’s something that can take you from lounging at home, out shopping paired with a great tunic, walking or exercising and perfect for being comfy in your zoom meeting with a nice top! 


This takes me back and I’m loving it!  Proof that everything comes back again but in a slightly different way.  The new sweatsuits are streetwear ready, and still ultra comfy and in the most lovely colours.  Wear them walking, shopping, lounging at home or tuning in to your favourite Netflix program.


A classic white t shirt is timeless and will server you well.  If you choose a quality fabrication it can be dressed up or down, worn with jeans or dress pants, and will be in your wardrobe for quite awhile.


The L.B.D is such a timeless and versatile addition to your wardrobe.  Pair it with a jean jacket and runners or dress it up with jewelry and heels.  You can create countless looks depending on the accessories and shoes you choose.


A good pencil skirt is also indispensable in terms of being long lasting and offering up the opportunity to mix and match with many other pieces.  Wear it with sandals and a t shirt in the Summer or a chunky sweater and boots on the Fall.  Add a camisole and blazer for the office or a statement top for dinner out.


A great black dress pant that is comfortable and fits well will take you far.  Choose a style that is flattering for you whether that is a more tailored or wider leg.  It will work with a t shirt, a chunky sweater, a statement top or a blazer.


A jean jacket is a timeless piece that can take you from season to season.  It can be layered with a dress in the Summer or a sweater in the Fall and can be paired with virtually any bottom…dress pants, jeans, pencil skir and more!


Everyone needs at least one (but maybe more!) statement top.  This piece will really make you feel fabulous whether you’re dressing up your jeans or pairing it with dress pants or pencil skirt.  It’s that “wow” item that elevates your wardrobe to a whole new level.


A white button up shirt can be worn as a layering piece under a sweater or stand on its own to dress up your jeans or dress pants.  It can also be worn as a coverup with a cami underneath…many options once more for different occasions.  Dress up for your zoom or throw it on for a beach cover up!
