So, what is considered a clothing essential? I consider something essential when it matches with lots of other pieces in your wardrobe. It’s something that can totally be transformed depending on the accessories you wear or pieces that lay the foundation for a whole outfit. Also, essentials never go out of style.
Whether you want to overhaul your wardrobe, or are looking for pieces to help make your current wardrobe more versatile, here are 15 things every woman should have in her closet:
Jeans that fit well
Neutral dress pants
When choosing your staples, keep a few things in mind:
If you have the budget to get some of these items in multiple colors, I highly recommend it. It will help stretch your wardrobe even further.
When choosing pieces, make sure you don’t select items with too many adornments. The more intricate the details on the piece, the less versatile it becomes.
If you live in an area like we do that experiences cool autumns and harsh winters, I’d definitely add a few things like a nice puffy coat and quality pair of boots to the list. If you’re in year-round warm temps (lucky you!), I’d add a pair of wedges and some sundresses to the list.
