wardrobe essentials

Do you look in your wardrobe every morning and sigh? Are you uninspired and want to give your style a shake-up? 

You are not alone! So many women wake up one morning and realize their clothes no longer match their style. And it can be difficult to know what basic clothing items you should have and where to begin finding your new style. 

Start with the main wardrobe essentials and build it out from there. If you are unsure what those are, this list has got you covered.

1. Classic Flats

Shoes are great wardrobe staples to start with because they will always fit you. A pair of classic flats will take you from the office to a lunch date, to drinks with friends.

2. Black Pants

Black pants are one of the most essential and basic clothing items but they don't have to be boring. Choose pants with a slim cigarette leg or a paper bag style to put a twist on a classic.

3. White T-Shirt

One of the most important wardrobe essentials is a white t-shirt. Why? Because it will save you time and again.

Want to wear a floral maxi skirt? Team it with a white t-shirt.

Have a cool pair of tartan pants you haven't worn in a while? Again, the white t-shirt saves the day.

This white t-shirt is a perfect choice.

4. Little Black Dress

Coco Chanel coined the term "little black dress" in the 1920s which proves it is a timeless piece. You can wear a little black dress to dinner, to the office, and cocktails with the girls.

5. Jean Jacket

One of the only clothing staples that work for men, women, and children. Everyone should have a jean jacket because it works as an extra layer in spring, summer, and fall. Opt for a mid-wash to stay in style.

This jean jacket is a perfect choice.

6. Sneakers

Women are not opting for comfort over style these days, they are choosing both! Sneakers are the perfect shoe for exploring on vacation or running around after your kids.

7. Knit Sweater

Wardrobe essentials don't need to be basic or block-color. A fun knit sweater can work great under a blazer or with a simple pair of jeans.

This knit sweater is a perfect choice.

8. Skinny Jeans

Speaking of jeans, skinny jeans are still the best type because they will take you from day to night with ease. Wear the jeans with a blouse for smart-casual office attire or with a t-shirt for running errands.

9. Button-up Shirt

Blouses can also be wardrobe essentials, but button-up shirts are more versatile. Keep it crisp for the office or roll up the sleeves and throw over a t-shirt for casual wear.
