Though no two fashion styles are alike and we wouldn't want them to be, there are 5 wardrobe essentials every girl should have in her closet.
Wondering what you should always have in your closet?
Figuring out wardrobe essentials is an important part when it comes to curating your closet and preparing yourself for any fashion situation that may come your way.
While fashion is an art and a fun way to express yourself, there are a few staple items that can make getting dressed in the morning a whole lot easier.
Keep reading to learn about the 5 wardrobe essentials every woman should have in her closet.
Jeans are a wardrobe staple that can work with many different kinds of outfits, both casual or fancy.
When it comes to denim, quality is important. You want to make sure it lasts through wears and washes.
Decide on a fit you like that can take you through various looks. If you're investing in a nice pair of jeans, try to select a wash that you won't tire of, maybe something on the darker side so you can dress up the outfit when needed.
A great pair of jeans can be worn with a leather jacket and T-shirt, a nice blouse and a pair of heels for a night out or a sleek blazer and loafers for a business casual look.
Be sure to wash your jeans inside out. This will help preserve the dye and keep your denim from fading.
If you find a brand of denim or a certain fit you like, consider purchasing a few pairs. Good jeans are hard to come by so when you find the right fit or brand, don't miss making them a part of your wardrobe.
If you are purchasing a few pairs, you may want to consider getting different styles or cuts, even if you're buying the same brand. Consider a straight leg and more relaxed fit along with a skinny jean or a tighter, high-waisted silhouette.
This way, you'll have multiple options when it comes to styling your outfits.
A Go-To Dress
Sure, you'll see many sites tell you it's important to have an LBD (little black dress) but in reality, it's more important to have a dress you can throw on for various occasions and feel confident in, regardless of the color.
Find a dress that fits your personality but that you would also feel comfortable wearing on a date, to a cocktail party or to a casual wedding.
It's going to be more about the fit and how it makes you feel than about what pattern it is. However, if you are going to go with a pattern or color, there's a way to select a dress that can work with lots of other items or in many situations.
For example, if you want a pop of color or a pattern, try to have it be "neutral". This doesn't mean wear a beige dress, it just means select patterns or colors that can be mixed and matched with different shoes and clutches.
You don't want to select a dress you can only wear black heels with. Finding a subtle pattern or muted color will allow you to get more use out of it while still making the fashion statement you want.
A well-tailored blazer can take you a long way in the jacket department.
First of all, you can easily wear this to work, no matter what kind of business you're in.
If you work in a more formal setting, you can pair your blazer with slacks or a pencil skirt. If you're in a more casual atmosphere, you can pair the blazer with denim and a pair of heels or chic flats.
Your best bet is to pick a blazer in a neutral color; black, grey, navy, etc. This way, you can play around with different blouses, shirts, or t's underneath it and have more freedom when it comes to pants, shoes, and bags.
Use the blazer as a base, adding other colorful or statement pieces to the outfit.
You really can't go wrong with a blazer for almost any situation. It will always be a classic, timeless and elegant piece.
Two Good Pairs of Shoes
You likely have more than two pairs of shoes in your closet, but you should have at least two pairs that can work with many outfits.
We suggest a loafer, mule or simple flat along with a go-to pair of heels.
These are the kinds of shoes that can go with any outfit and finish your look off when you're in a pinch and need to run out the door.
Keep the colors simple, opt for a brown, grey or black loafer and pair of classic high heels.
You can wear either of these options with jeans and a T-shirt, that go-to dress you have in your closet or a more sophisticated business casual look.
You may want to invest a little bit of money in these two items because you want them to last a long time and you want them to look high-end, especially if they're a consistent part of your wardrobe.
This is simply a must-have in any woman's wardrobe.
It can be hard to find high-quality, well-fitting t-shirts so when you do, stock up.
Black, white and grey are all great colors to round out your t-shirt collection and can go with basically any outfit. Pair them with your favorite jeans for a casual day of running errands then dress up the look later that night with heels and your blazer.
A good t-shirt can take you from day to night and everywhere in between.
They're also a great staple to wear with skirts and should be an important part of your wardrobe.
