10 Wardrobe Essentials: What Every Woman Needs in Her Closet?


I love fashion! Every woman loves to have a wardrobe that makes them look good. Let's have fun with fashion together.


1. Short Sleeve White Tee

A high quality cotton short sleeve white tee will be perfect for all causal occasions. Spring, summer, and fall are all seasons that you can rock this tee. It will really look good with everything. Look to purchase from an eco-friendly sustainable clothing brand. Even though these brands might be a tad more expensive than fast fashion, their quality is much better than fast fashion clothing brands. Our planet will thank you for your choice.

2. A Pair of "Perfect" Jeans for You

We all love to wear jeans for causal occasions. Jeans pair perfectly with lots of different types of tops. But what kind of jeans flatter your body and shape? In the last few years, skinny jeans are all the rage. Every woman has at least one pair. But you don't necessarily have to go with skinny jeans. Pick a good pair that you love. You will wear them for years. One word of advice, most women look better with dark wash. But the wash is also depending on your preference as well.

3. Black Dress Pants

In the modern world, a woman will need proper clothing for job interviews and the business world. A pair of traditional black dress pants is a must have item in your closet. Although this item is not everyday for some women, you will need to wear it once in a while. For those that work in an office with a professional dress code, you will wear this item at least once per week.

4. Black or Denim Pencil Skirt or Little Black Dress

Why so many choices? Well, not every woman works in an office environment where the pencil skirt is prevalent. If you like the look of a pencil skirt and works in an office that requires business professional attire, go for a classic pair of black or grey pencil skirt. But if your work attire is causal, go for a pair of denim pencil skirt instead. Denim is a lot more causal and perfect for weekends where you want to show off those legs. You don't like either the black or denim pencil skirts, how about a little black dress?

5. A Nice Neutral Color Blouse

Notice it's not white in the title. I know everyone has their preferences so I left this one for you to decide on the color. Any neutral color blouse is going to be perfect. You can wear this for the office and nice causal occasions too. I personally recommend some of the silk blouses at Everlane. No, I'm not associated with them in any shape or form. I'm just a consumer that only recommends what I love. They have a few styles and a variety of colors to pick from. The washable silk tops are my favs because they are thicker and really well made. The capsule wardrobe is all about being able to wear the same piece for many occasions.

6. A Good Pair of Flats (Black or Brown)

A good pair of flat will last for years. It might be a little bit expansive. But the cost per wear will be lower because you will reach for it all the time. Again, going to higher quality is very good for the environment. Pointy flats are very flattering because they visually elongate your legs. A pair of black suede flats are good for those that like to dress up often. If you want something classic but a little on the causal side, brown flats are good picks too.

7. "Perfect" Sweater for You!

Everyone has their preferences when it comes to the sweater. The classic cardigan is good for the office and classic ladies. A turtle neck sweater perfectly complements a woman with an elongated face. A chucky cable-knit sweater will keep you wear in the middle of winter. If you live in a warmer climate, a nice V-neck cashmere sweater is more than enough to keep you warm through the coldest days. So, again, you can pick the perfect sweater for your wardrobe, style, and location. But I do recommend high quality yarn such as wool or cashmere. That kind of material will survive many washes and still look great season after season.

8. Black Ankle Boots

These shoes will be a staple in any woman's wardrobe. They are good for the spring, fall, and winter. What a versatile item in the wardrobe. Go for a pair with the most simple and classic design. My personal choice is the Chelsea boot. Less is more.

9. Outerwear (Trench Coat, Blazer, or Leather Jacket)

Again, let's have some choices. Trench coat is an old classic that's been around for ages. But it might be slightly outdated for the millennial generation. It's still really good for the right woman, but not for everyone. The blazer is another business oriented piece of clothing. But if you opt for a different color than black, it can look more causal and fashionable. Lastly, my personal pick for myself is the leather jacket for all the super casual women.

10. White or Floral Dress

Let's give the last spot completely to causal wear. What do you need in summer? I think the answer is either a white or a floral dress. When we are enjoying the warmer summer months with friends and family, we still want to look our best with a cute dress.
