10 Wardrobe Essentials That You Need in Your Closet
Here's our list of everyday wardrobe essentials every woman needs.
1. The Perfect TeeThere is nothing groundbreaking about the perfect t-shirt, but we would be remiss if we failed to mention it. T-shirts come in all shapes and sizes, including necklines like v-necks, scoop-neck, crew-neck, etc. Not to mention the many sleeve styles to mix things up. Find the style that best suits your figure and needs, and buy it in black, white, and one in your favorite color that looks great with your skin tone.
2. Flattering Denim JeansWhat was once considered working clothes are now considered a fashion staple. A high-quality pair of denim can last many years and look better and better as they age. The most important factor when choosing your jeans is the fit. Finding a pair that is both comfortable and flatter allows you to dress them up or down, regardless of the season or occasion. Well-fitting jeans are the most essential of the essentials!
3. The Knit SweaterIf you live in an area that experiences multiple seasons or brisk evenings, knit sweaters are essential. Sweaters, a stylish way to stay cozy in the fall or warm on a cooler night, are available in various weights, patterns, colors, fits, and more. Lighter-weight sweaters are the perfect transitional piece and are a must.
4. A Simple Pair of FlatsSure, it's fun to wear heels, but how realistic is it to wear them every day? Thankfully, flats are a great everyday option and can be just as chic. Pair your favorite ankle-length skinny jeans or cigarette trousers with an effortless top, chunky sweater, and your go-to flats, and you'll have the perfect casual-cool look. Do this, and you'll prove to everyone that flats are a real fashion game-changer.
5. Classic Button-Down ShirtThere are countless versions of the classic button-down shirt. Between the various silk, Oxford, linen, and moisture-wicking styles, you're sure to find one that looks great on you. These shirts look great dressed up with a skirt or dress pants or paired down with shorts or jeans and are another essential that you may need in a handful of colors, prints, and fits.
6. The Little Black DressThe little black dress needs no explanation. Every woman knows just how powerful and essential the LBD is! When it comes to the black dress, plenty of styles and silhouettes will perfectly suit your body. If you aren't sure where to start, try an A-line dress that looks good on just about every type of body and is suitable for most occasions.
7. Perfectly Tailored PantsA solid pair of high-waisted or pencil straight trousers is another staple you'll keep in your closet for the long haul. Don't worry about trends here; find the best fit for your body in a high-quality material that you can wear all day long.
8. A Black Leather BagEvery outfit needs the perfect finishing touch, and a black leather bag is a great way to put the cherry on top! Whether you're ready to make an investment purchase with a designer label or want to keep things more modest, there are many high-quality options available when it comes to buying a purse. The best part about splurging for genuine leather is that it will last for decades, so aim for a timeless shape and silhouette.
9. The Jean JacketAnother piece of your spring and summertime uniform should be a jean jacket. A medium wash is classic and will pair perfectly with just about every other piece in your wardrobe. This versatile addition can be worn countless ways: over a maxi dress, with a sweater, matched with black or blue jeans, and more.
10. Comfortable Under Layers and GarmentsAll of the items in your closet are nothing without a good, comfortable foundation. We're talking about the layers you wear under your clothes. Sometimes these are not even seen, but they play a big part in the comfort of your look and how it fits. Other times, you want these pieces to show, like pairing a layer beneath your favorite tank or sleeveless dress.
