“The joy of dressing is an art.” – John Galliano
We love trends, and no closet is complete without the essentials. Wardrobe essentials are clothes and items you turn to every day in order to create or complete your outfit. Right from a plain white shirt to a classic maxi dress, every closet knows what’s necessary.
So, if you have heard yourself often repeating, “I’ve nothing to wear,” then having these wardrobe staples will reduce your problem by half! Of course, wardrobe essentials must have the clothes of your personal taste, and here are some common ones that every woman needs
Common Wardrobe Essentials Every Woman Needs
Relax Fit Jeans
The first wardrobe staple we are about to discuss is relaxed jeans. These are quite loose compared to regular jeans. Relaxed-fit jeans provide plenty of space in the thigh, crotch, and seat. They are not skinny and feature lengthier than the other jeans types.
These jeans are designed to provide comfort all day long. While being super roomy and baggy, they also keep things professional.
Relaxed jeans were a weekend attire at one point in time. However, now they are showing up in the workplace and other official events and meetings as well. Once called ‘mom jeans’, women are now using them in everyday life.
No matter what, your comfort comes first. The comfy fit of these jeans has already taken over the fashion world. Not only will it help you look ‘in fashion,’ but you will also feel restful.
Put aside your skinny jeans once in a while and grab yourself a pair of relaxed pants. Live with ease!
A basic t-shirt can be called a woman’s best friend, a classic wardrobe staple. These t-shirts are the quickest and easiest way to get on your street-style game and further help you create endless trendy looks.
You can consider getting a graphic t-shirt or polo t-shirt. During summers, go for vibrant colours, like mustard, pink, blue, red, and more. You can also choose monochromes and muted colours. Pick whatever feels comfortable and that which describes your style.
Believe it or not but denim jackets are a saviour! You can wear it through the year at every chance you get. When styled with a summer dress or a basic tee, these jackets make the entire attire stand out.
A good denim jacket is one of the most useful wardrobe staples. Denim jackets are comfortable and versatile, and every woman needs one in her closet.
With denim jackets, you can wear a beautiful satin slip dress, a bodycon dress, a basic t-shirt, a high-waisted pencil skirt, jogger pants, straight fit jeans, combat boots, a layered necklace, and the list simply goes on!
Little Black Dress
The little black dress or LBD as it’s called is a wardrobe staple. LBD is a work go-to and perfect for a date night or a cocktail party. Wear statement jewellery for a party or dress up with sneakers and a denim jacket for a weekend getaway, it fits perfectly in every situation.
Your LBD will fit like a glove. You can choose a short or a long one, the options are nearly unlimited. There’s no rule to picking the perfect dress.
There are certain items without which no closet can be complete. And one such wardrobe staple is an all-white sneaker. The shoe trends come and go, but these sneakers are always in style!
Practically speaking, white sneakers are very supportive and comfortable when you have to walk all day long. They fit well with most of the outfits in your closet, so pick one, and you are good to go!
Grab a stylish handbag, clutch, or tote bag, and you are ready to start your day! These wardrobe essentials are perfect to complete your outfit. Also, you may have never heard a woman saying, one bag is enough. Women love to stock up their closets with handbags and purses. So, pick a few that suits your style and describes your personality.
