5 Universally Flattering Pieces Every Girl Must Own
We all have our own list of fashion must-haves and closet non-negotiables to suit not just our personal style, but our unique body types, too. But whether you're tall, petite, athletic, or curvy, there are a few pieces that are just universally flattering and deserves a top spot in your cabinets! To find out what these are, we asked Liza Soberano's go-to stylist Perry Tabora to list them all down so we can stock up on these fashion investments.
The Little Black Dress (LBD)
The little black dress will be forever be the most versatile piece of clothing you can and should be able to find in your wardrobe. You can wear to fun night out with your blockmates or even to a regular school day! Dress it up with a pair of cute heels or dress it down with a pair of comfy flats.
Dark Wash Jeans
Another versatile piece, you can literally wear your dark wash jeans with any top—from basic to brights. Plus, since it's in a dark wash, it's flattering for any body type.
Denim or Leather Jacket
If you're looking for a piece to splurge on, you know that a good denim or leather jacket is worth it. These jackets will never go out of style and will actually look better as they age! Layer any of these third-piece items on your OOTD for an instant cool-girl vibe.
An A-Line skirt will easily give your body a nice silhouette as it nips and flares at all the right places. It also comes in different fabrics—from leather to fun prints—which can add texture and character to any look in a snap.
Basic Black or White Low Scoop Neck Tee
Wearing a low scoop neck tee is a good style hack to instantly look slimmer because it highlights your collarbones. It also serves as a nice canvas piece since you can easily pair it with a skirt or a pair of pants, and layer it with a denim or leather jacket for a cool look for the day.
Which of these universally flattering pieces do you already have in your closet?

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
