You might not have a love for clothing as I do, or maybe you do. Lucky for you I have compiled a list of clothing essentials every woman should have in her closet. These items will give you a balanced wardrobe of basic items so that you’ll always be well dressed no matter where you go. Get your checklist ready, open your closet doors, and let’s get to work.
Little black dress | This is a staple to have for special occasions, or when you just want to look classic and sexy. You can always dress up or down a dress. Pair it with sandals for a stroll on the beach, or your favorite pair of heels for a night out.
A blazer or jacket | You can pair any light jacket or blazer with a cute top or dress to add a layer and more dimension to any outfit. They are also great to add a little warmth in the fall and spring.
An AWESOME pair of jeans | Every person should have a pair of jeans that fits them perfectly. A good fitting pair of jeans can alter your entire look, and make you look thinner if they fit properly. It may take some searching but they are out there. To stay classic find a pair that is a darker wash with a boot-cut leg.
Basics | Basics are something that you should have plenty of, and make sure that you ‘save’ on these items as you will probably be buying them more often. You should have at least one black and one white plain tank top (also recommended- cream and navy). I wear a tank under everything. My favorites are extra long ones I can tuck in, or use as a slip. A couple of plain V-neck t-shirts are also a necessity. You can layer them with scarves, or jackets.
Multi- purpose accessories | It doesn’t matter if your taste is gold, silver, or colorful; some great jewelry, bags, and belts that can go with anything can pull together your look. And completely revamp an old outfit!
Comfortable heels | A comfortable pair of heels is required for every woman, and yes, they are out there. There will be those times when you have an event, or just want to dress up a look, having those go-to heels will help. My current favorites are from Target, and were only $24.99! So, you can find them on a budget too. No excuses!
Guess what? The fun part has arrived, go shop! Use this handy list to form your perfect wardrobe. When you want a fun new color or trendy pattern, go for the accessories (which are generally cheaper)! Have fun.
