A couple of weeks ago I did a post about items that you shouldn’t have in your closet. But today, I’m going to be talking about items that you should have in your closet, that are clothes that you can easily mix, match and pair with just about anything that you already have.
These pieces are so important for you to either already have or start investing into, since you will be able to actually wear and get the max out of them for any occasion you go to. And having clothes that you can actually count on no matter what, is probably one of the best things a girl can ask for!
So here are my top 10 personal closet essentials I think every girl should have!
The little black dress is probably one of the top clothing items to have in your wardrobe, since it’s so incredibly versatile and chic. Whether you’re going clubbing with your friends, going to the movies or eating out at your favorite restaurant; you can easily add accessories, heels, sneakers or whatever you want to pair with it to make it blend perfectly for wherever you’re going.
Plain tee shirts are of course a standard for any girls (or actually guys wardrobe as well) since they’re great for just wearing around in the house or as a base layer under a jacket. And, the best part about plain tees, is that as long as it’s in the white, grey or black color scheme, you can easily style it with anything that you want!
Most people have a love hate relationship when it comes to jeans, and I totally understand, I was once there too. However, they’re so many different types of styles, cuts and colors jeans come in, that it’s a bit impossible to hate them and not find one that flatters your body type. You can choose between jeggings, skinnies, flared, boyfriend, boot cut, etc, to incorporate in your wardrobe for whenever you need them.
Denim jackets are like the perfect Spring jacket that you can just throw on and head out the door with. They’re a must have jacket for day time errands and outings that are more laid-back and casual, and are a great jacket for layering over your tops or sweaters. They’re just such a cool jacket that I think every girl should have!
A nice fitted blouse is always a good piece to own, especially if you work/plan to work in the corporate world. They’re great for if you want to look a little more polished and professional at your job, at a meeting or at any special event. They add just enough chicness and sophistication to your look, while being so simple!
Blazers are a great staple to have if you’re in the corporate setting as well. But again, they’re also just great to have in your wardrobe period, since they can literally dress up a tee-shirt, jeans and a pair of kicks in a couple of seconds. They can really add a refinement to your whole attire by just capping it around your shoulders, behind your back or of course just wearing it like a normal blazer.
To me it doesn’t matter if it’s a skater skirt, a denim skirt or a pencil skirt, I think having a dressy or a more everyday casual skirt is really important to have in your closet. Skirts can turn just about any outfit a lot more feminine looking, and can easily take you to a chill day time look, to a more flirty night-time look just by styling or accessorizing it to that occasion.
Even though jeans are super versatile and great to have in your wardrobe, sometimes they just don’t cut it if you’re going somewhere really dressy. That is why the dress pant would be your go-to for if you’re looking for something a little more liberating than a dress or a skirt, but something more professional than jeans. I feel like dress pants are the perfect balance of being formal and convenient.
The best way to add a little bit of warmth and coziness to your outfit, is with a well-fitted or oversized cardigan that you can wear with your favorite tee-shirt, leggings (or whatever else that you like). I think cardigans are a great extra addition to just throw on in the Spring or Fall months when the temperature is a little on the chilly side.
Peacoats are great to have when the weather is cold out as well, and are very slimming and stylish compared to most Winter coats. And, the great part about the peacoat is that it’s so versatile that you don’t have to worry about investing in multiple coats since it can be worn in a vary of occasions. You can dress them up or down for different types of events when it’s cold out, because they’ll still keep you warm yet put together!
So that’s all of my top ten wardrobe essentials. I hope as always that this post helped you in some form, fashion or way, and helped shine light on some clothing items that you may not have in your closet.☺
