Is it just me, or do you find those lists of things women MUST have in their wardrobe to be somewhat confusing? My whole ethos, as a personal stylist, is about helping you find clothes that not only suit your physical characteristics but also who you are as a person.
So I decided to put together a list of clothing items that you REALLY need in your wardrobe, regardless of your age, dress size or style personality. I hope you find it interesting.
Wardrobe Essentials For Women:
1. White T-Shirt
A white T-shirt has been a classic for years and I’m sure it will always be! It’s perfect for casual wear, building layers in your outfits, and goes with practically everything. There are many different styles you can choose from but it’s an absolute must to have one in your wardrobe!
2. Cosy Jumper or Knit
Of course you need to keep warm and with a snuggly and stylish jumper you can tick all the boxes. It will work with everything too – jeans, smart trousers or skirt – depending on how you feel and how you need to look.
3. Perfectly Fitted Jeans
It’s important to spend time finding the best jeans style for yourself so that whenever you pull them on you know you are going to be comfortable and you will look amazing. There are a multitude of styles and brands out there which is where I can help you find those that will enhance your body shape.
4. Blouse or Shirt
This item can be worn as part of a whole range of different outfits. Maybe try a pattern or colour for this part of your wardrobe. It will team easily with jeans and trainers as a casual look as well as being more dressy if you wear it with a smarter pair of trousers or a pleated skirt.
5. Trousers or Skirt
Whether you choose to wear straight or wide-legged trousers or a short or midi skirt, having a versatile option for your bottom half is essential in any wardrobe.
Again, depending on the occasion, you can dress them up or down. A carefully chosen item such as this will serve you well for a long time.
6. The Go To Dress
Everyone needs a dress that you can throw on in the morning, feel comfortable in and know that you look absolutely fantastic! This wardrobe staple should make you feel happy and can cover all manner of social occasions for when jeans just won’t do – think lunch with friends. Wear it with trainers for a relaxed and stylish feel and with your cosy knit on cooler days.
7. The LBD
This is a timeless classic and the Little Black Dress will always have a place in your wardrobe. If you find a style that is well-fitted and made from quality fabrics it will last you well. Of course, I am only too happy to help you with this so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
So there you have my 7 wardrobe essentials for women. I would also bear in mind that to look and feel good you need well-fitting underwear, so I would also recommend using a bra fitting service.
