What’s missing from a woman’s wardrobe? Only a woman knows.
Every day when you open your closet, you starts making a virtual checklist of things that you should buy next. And why shouldn’t you? For a woman, dressing up is not as easy as she makes it look. There is a certain art to effortless style and let our tell you, it is no mean feat.
An effortless look requires more than just wearing expensive clothes – the key is to look expensive even if you are wearing an outfit bought from a thrift shop. In order to achieve this, there are certain points that you should keep in mind:
Points to remember while selecting wardrobe essentials
- Your clothes should be well-tailored. Even a boxy look can feel messy if the clothes don’t fit well.
- You always need the right pair of underclothes. The right underwear can make or break a look.
- You should invest in luxe fabrics. Now luxe doesn’t always mean high-priced. It means that you should look for pure and natural weaves instead of choosing synthetic textiles.
In addition to this, there are certain clothes that every woman must own in order to build a reliable wardrobe. These things are non-negotiable – they are the essentials, the building blocks, the foundation pieces that will keep you forever stylish.
To help you get things moving, we have compiled this list of basic silhouettes that will help to complete your wardrobe.
Black High-Waisted Pants
This is a game-changer. Super-versatile and chic all the time – you can style it with anything you want. A long tunic or a short blouse, the high-waist shape goes with everything
Why midi? Because not everyone can pull off a mini and a maxi is high-maintenance. A midi skirt is simple, flatters most body shapes and perfectly shows off your pumps.
This is not 1873 when denims were invented. Today, we have so many styles available – skinny, bootleg, straight, boyfriend, mom – there really is a perfect shape of denim for everyone. Go ahead, find yours and make sure you never run out of stock again.
Preferably in camel or plaid. Both are classics, both look equally timeless. A blazer looks polished and feels powerful. It feels like adding an extra layer of confidence to your look. Go for a square/boxy shape if you are getting your first one.
A Striped Shirt Dress
This is essential for a working woman’s wardrobe. Stripes look professional and the silhouette works with every body type. You can always add a belt to finish your look.
A Back Slip Dress
The fancier, the better. These are for those fun evenings when you go to let your hair down. Slide into a slip dress or a top and you will instantly feel glamorous. It is the ultimate work-to-weekend silhouette – you can style it with a blazer to work or wear it with layered neckpieces for after-hours.
A Denim Jacket
Because a denim jacket is the symbol for ‘cool’. It is for your weekends off, for your day out with your girls, for a movie date or for your vacations. A denim jacket looks good with everything and gives you major street style cred.
