Wardrobe Staples Every Woman Should Own

Trench Coat

A classic trench coat from your favorite clothing brand is a must have. The right coat can be matched with every item that you have to make it classier, from white weekend shirts to boardroom attire. When choosing a classic trench coat, the key is to look for the right color that will complement any look you put together.

Trusted Jeans Brand

By the time you reach maturity, you will learn that not every jeans brand will look good on your body. This is not necessarily bad news, as there are so many brands to choose from.

The key is to find a pair of jeans with a good stretch but does not dig at your waist, looks good with flats and heels, and has a smoothing overall effect. The most flattering cut is an ankle-cropped, slim fit pair with a higher rise.

Although it will take time to find the right pair of jeans for you, once you do you will never have to go through the same search again. You found your brand, now stick to it.

By now, you probably know how versatile leggings are. You can pair a thick pair of leggings with a blazer for a formal event or wear them to the gym. If you are wondering where to find custom leggings that look unique, you should start your search online.

Fitted White Shirt

A simple button down is a must-have in any wardrobe, but you need to get the right waist, bust, and shoulder measurements. If you choose a design that is too boxy, you might end up looking like a waiter. On the other hand, a shirt that is too tight will make you feel uncomfortable.

Try on as many shirts as it takes to find the right fit. You should not be afraid to purchase a bigger size and then ask your tailor to make the necessary adjustments. Moreover, you should consider materials other than cotton such as silk – a different fabric might be better for your body type.

Signature Dress

Not every woman feels comfortable in a sheath or DVF wrap dress. When it comes to choosing a signature dress, there are no rules and you should choose the one you feel most comfortable wearing. Once you find the best cut for your body type, you should strive to choose a good color.

Black Cashmere Sweater

The fastest way to dress up your jeans during a weekend dinner date or look chic in black pants is by wearing a cashmere sweater – it goes with everything. If black is not something you would like in your wardrobe, cashmere in any neutral color would work. Just make sure that you choose the best silhouette for your body type.

V-neck styles work best for curvier women while crewnecks work great for slimmer bodies. An oversized turtleneck style will look great with pulled-back hair.

Silky Button-Down

This item has become a multipurpose layering tool for those who want to wear a skirt and work blazer. For a more feminine effect, consider going a size up. When choosing silk button downs, go for bold prints and patterns that shine.

Statement Jacket Or Blazer

Instead of opting for another boring black blazer, choose one with a peplum waist or a cascading lapel. You can also go for bomber or army jackets if you want to stand out more. Throw this over a pair of dark wash jeans to create a modern work look.

The best thing about these must have items is they will not burn a hole in your wallet. You will find many of these items at an affordable price. Additionally, you do not have to get all of the items at once. Buy them one by one, wait for sales and look online.

  1. While I don’t dress up often, I do have a few dresses in the closet for those special occasions. Everyone should definitely have a fancy outfit for a night on the town!

  2. My staples are sexy, but comfy skinnies, black leggings, an oversize sweater that magically still makes you look amazing, and a bright jacket!

  3. Hmmm…I think I need to go shopping! I need a few more of these.
