Twelve Pieces Of Clothing Every Woman Needs In Her Wardrobe

A well put together wardrobe, made up of classic pieces of clothing, will help you to be able to always create flattering, stylish outfits that you love. Basing your wardrobe around good, quality, properly fitting items gives your wardrobe great bones, that you can build on to create amazing outfits. Make sure you have these items in your wardrobe.

1- Basic white t-shirts. A few white t-shirts that fit well and are made from a quality fabric a fantastic wardrobe basic. These classic items can be worn very casually with jeans, or smart under your suit. Layer it under a strappy dress for a fun summer look, or for colder weather, layer it under a warm sweater.

2- A little black dress. This is the ultimate wardrobe classic for a reason. It can be whipped out for almost any occasion when you’ve got nothing to wear. If you only buy one, choose a classic cut that flatters you, and you can style it for many different occasions, from date night or job interviews to work or a funeral.

3- Jeans. Buy a few different cuts in different washes. A light wash in a relaxed fit is a great for weekends, when worn with trainers. Style a slim fit in a dark wash with heels and a smart top for a night out. Try a few different styles to find what suits you. When shopping for jeans, remember that they should feel slightly too tight when you first put them on, as the denim will relax as you wear it.

4- A classic pair of pumps. These smart heels in black or nude can be worn with everything. Put them on with your suit for work, or dress up your jeans for a night on the town. For a sexy look, pair them with a dress. Keep them in good condition so they look smart, and have them reheeled when they need it to prolong their life.

5- A crisp white shirt. A good quality button up can be more versatile than you’d think. It can obviously be worn smartly under a suit or with a pencil skirt, but can also be made to feel casual. Undo some buttons, roll up the sleeves and wear with jeans. You could wear it open over a t-shirt, and thrown over your bikini as beach cover up.

6- A simple knee length skirt. Choose a cut you feel good in, whether that’s an A-line style or a pencil skirt. A knee length skirt is easy to style up for different occasions, form work to relaxing at weekends.

7- Classic flat shoes. A comfortable flat shoe in a simple style is a good basic. Choose a color that pairs with lots of your wardrobe, and a style that gives good arch support to look after your feet. A smart style like a loafer can be worn for work too as an alternative to heels.

8- A classic wrap dress. A wrap style is a very flattering shape for almost all body types, especially curvier shapes. Wear with flats for the weekend, or with heels for work. Choose a flattering print that you love, and a good wrap dress can take you from the office, to a date, to a casual wedding.

9- Ankle boots. An ankle boot is a lighter, easier to wear option than a tall boot, and is very easy to style. A flat boot, or one with a low, chunky heel will go with just about everything in the wardrobe and should be comfortable enough to wear everyday during cooler temperatures.

10- A jean jacket. Choose a medium wash for the most classic style, and this timeless piece can be worn over lots of different outfits, through different seasons. A cropped style is pretty over a summer dress, whereas for a punkier style, choose an oversized cut and add badges.

11- Black pants. Black pants in a flattering cut and a quality fabric are a great foundation item. Buy a few pairs and you can wear them for many occasions. For work, they can be worn with a blazer or a blouse instead of a suit. Dress them up with heels and a slinky shirt for a date or drinks with friends. Try a variety of cuts to find your favourites.

12- A knit sweater. A cozy, classic knit sweater is a great piece for layering up during the colder months. Choose something soft to wear and avoid any itchy fabrics and you’ll be able to wear it forever.
