It’s best to invest in basic or staple pieces because they form the backbone of any closet. Also, good-quality essentials will serve you for several years. When buying them consider the cost per wear and tear. If they are worth the investment, go ahead and make your purchases.
You may be excited to build your wardrobe from the ground up, but you don’t know where to start. Essentials will vary from one person to the next depending on your lifestyle, personality, and profession. Mostly, your basic items will be timeless pieces that go with most of the clothes in your wardrobe. Here are some closet essentials that are a must-have for every woman.
A structured blazer
A classic structured blazer is an outerwear piece that will elevate simple outfits and always be in style. The secret to choosing the right one is to ensure that you get one that comfortably layers with other tops. For instance, a neutral tailored blazer can be styled with a blouse, simple t-shirt or even dress.
A classic blazer is versatile and will go well with structured or hobo Stella McCartney bags. Add a pair of denim and some dainty accessories such as pearl earrings to your look for an effortlessly elegant look.
A quality blouse
Blouses come in a variety of colors, styles, and textures. However, you will never go wrong with a classic silk blouse. Choose it in a neutral hue such as blush, white, camel, or light grey. This way, it will seamlessly go with several other pieces in your wardrobe. If you cannot buy a silk blouse, you can opt for a more affordable blend.
The staple little black dress
The little black dress never goes out of style as it is a wardrobe staple for ladies of different age ranges. It will come in handy when you can’t decide what to wear. A black dress also goes with most colors which makes it versatile to style. You can dress it up by adding a pair of heeled sandals and a blazer or dress it down with some white tennis sneakers.
When you shop for a dress first consider your body type. These dresses come in a wide variety of shapes which means that there is always a dress to suit your body and style preferences.
A pair of quality denim
A pair of denim is an excellent everyday staple, especially if your profession allows casual clothing. On top of being easy to style, jeans can also be elegant. White, black and dark wash jeans look expensive and will take a bland look to the next level.
Denim pants come in a variety of styles, too, ranging from slim fit, boot cut, to straight leg. Choose a style that flatters your body and buy it in white or black. You can also buy them in your favorite dark or medium wash if your budget allows.
Essentials wardrobe pieces go with most pieces in your closet. As basics are very versatile and can be styled in numerous different ways, you will also find yourself appreciating the ease of dressing up daily.
