People have remarked that change is the only true constant you can expect in life. Republicans replace democrats; infinity scarves pave the way for blanket scarves; and the question on everyone’s minds right now is what comes next after the bomber jacket. There can be no doubt that fashion trends change faster than lightning flashes in a stormy spring sky. Let’s take a snapshot glimpse at our picks for the top 6 essential fashion items every woman should own right now.

1. A Black Designer Sheath Dress

People went bonkers over the Italian designer sheath dress Melania Trump wore to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Her early 2017 fashion choices have caused journalists to wonder whether the era of American fashion designers dressing the first family is at an end. Regardless of the answer to this question, the black designer sheath dress is one of the hottest items topping women’s shopping lists this season.

2. Dressy Black High-Heeled Platform Sandals

Lady Gaga style 8-inch platforms might or might not be your thing, but you can’t beat the versatility of a fab pair of black platform sandals. They give you the optical illusion of a slimmer silhouette no matter how many cookies you ate after dinner last night.

3. Comfortable Athletic Sandals

Whether you’re heading out for spring break, planning an outdoor vacation adventure or indulging in a neighborhood barbecue at home, you’ll want a new pair of stylish, sporty sandals to wear. They’ll keep your feet comfortable while you’re in action. Some of our current favorite styles are these strappy sandals and classic slides like these, but you have bunches of appropriate choices for similar footwear.

4. A Go-Anywhere Classic Handbag

A statement handbag is a must-have item that’s both functional and stylish. Look for a bag that’s large enough to carry all your essentials yet sleek enough to stash in your desk at work.

5. Retro Jeans

Fashion experts have gone on the record to predict that skinny jeans are on their way out, and that vintage jeans are the hot new coveted replacements.

6. Classic Aviator Style Sunglasses

There are lots of reasons to grab yourself a stylish new pair of sunglasses. They make you look mysterious; they shield your eyes from harsh sunlight; and they’ll make a favorable style statement when you wear them.
