I guess everyone is wondering from time to time “What are the essential items that i must have in my wardrobe?” and here we are delivering this to you. It is wiser to invest in timeless pieces that are essential in each season, than to buy only what is trendy.
Read the article, check your closet and go shopping!
1) The Little Black Dress
There’s an unwritten rule of fashion which dictates that every woman should own at least one little black dress. The LBD is a staple piece that can be worn up or down, depending on the occasion, and that can be accessorized in such a variety of ways that it apparently never gets old. Not to mention that black flatters any kind of figure!
2) A classic trench coat
Starting off as a replacement for military grey serge greatcoats and then becoming a staple of Private Investigators all over America, the trench coat has become a classic item to have into any wardrobe. This item is perfect for transition weather and can be mixed and matched with almost any pieces of one’s wardrobe, from a pair of jeans to a cocktail dress, mostly due to its feminine cut and sophisticated color.
3) A pair of jeans that make your bum look amazing
There is simply no need of presentation for these sweethearts! We’ve all dreamed of that perfect pair that simply puts the curves in all the right places and can be worn with those new stilettos you’ve just got or the old Converse you’ve worked hard to get into the perfect state of disarray. If you already have them, consider yourself lucky and give them a special place in your closet (if you haven’t already!).
4) The old Converse sneakers
I know how much money and time you invest into the perfect wardrobe, and I also know how much you take care of your most cherished pieces. But the one thing you should never take too much care of is one pair of Converse sneakers. They can be patterned or simple, black or white, it doesn’t really matter. The only thing you have to do is make sure they get stylishly dirty.
5) An artless black blazer
Yet again, a timeless piece. The simple black blazer is one of those items you can wear with anything and make it look up. From an office worthy outfit, to a loose summery one, this piece is both very comfortable and elegant.
6) Your signature jewelry
With this item, you can go and take it ad literam and get your signature word or phrase put into metal and wear it around your neck, as a necklace, or on your coat as a brooch. However, you can always have a signature piece that represents you and that has become a staple of your style over time. My signature piece of jewelry is an embroidered locket with the pictures of my parents and boyfriend in it.
If you’re looking for a place to customize your own darling piece, you can try website like Nashelle, Tatty Devine or Zales.
7) A matching set of sexy lingerie
If you want to feel great on the outside, you definitely have to feel great on the inside. And so goes with clothes. You can rock your confidence even further by walking around being the only one knowing about your little secret: matching set of lingerie. This is such a confidence booster that every woman needs to have at least a set in her closet!
8) Timeless sunglasses
Tiredness, puffy eyes, the need of shielding yourself from the sun or just the need of accessorizing your face can be solved with a gorgeous pair of sunglasses. With a main requirement of being fitted to your face and personality, the sky is the limit with this accessory.
9) Statement Necklace
My closet is filled with dozens of statement necklaces and I believe that every woman should have at least one of their own in their closet. They add life and savoir to any outfit and can be extremely versatile. Of course, if you’re more daring, you can choose to layer them for an added effect, but I recommend having at least one that you can spice up any outfit with!
10) A plain white shirt
If you’re ever thought you don’t need a white shirt because you’re not working a 9 to 5 job in an office, let me tell you you’re terribly mistaken. A white shirt is a must-have item for any woman’s closet, as it can come handy in both more formal occasions, but also in more dressed-down situations. A loose white shirt can work wonders paired with a pair of denim short or a flowery skirt on a hot summer day.
11) The black bag
It’s big, it’s roomy and it’s extremely versatile, so it obviously fits in very well with your busy lifestyle, not to mention with all the other pieces in your wardrobe. You can choose one with a short strap or with a long one, but I would advise you to get a bag with an adjustable strap, so you can adapt to the different events you’ll be taking it with you.
12) Power shoes
Every woman should own at least one pair of power shoes, be them stilettos, wedges or peep-toes. These shoes may the oldest ones you own or just that pair that makes you feel the strongest. When you put them on, you feel like you’re on top of the world and you can do anything! For me, that’s a pair of red block sandals I bought on a whim a couple of years ago and I’ve brought them with me on every occasion ever since.
