So if you are planning to declutter your overflowing closet or building your capsule wardrobe, here are some basic wardrobe essentials that need to stay!
It’ll be pretty shocking to know someone who doesn’t have a pair of denim jeans in their closet because come on denim is forever. Slacks, sweatpants, and leggings look great, but if you want a classic bottom that you can style with whatever and for wherever, it has to be denim jeans.
It’s up to you what kind you’d want in your closest. You can pick between high-waist mom jeans, relaxed jeans for a straight-leg cut, or the famous skinny jeans that have been around since forever. This is the basic of the basic wardrobe essentials so it’s impossible for a closet to not have one!
The right blazer is your closet’s ace. It can pull together even the simplest of outfits and add a little spice to your look. A casual dinner date? Put on a blazer. Slightly colder weather? Put on a blazer. A semi-formal business meeting? Just put on a blazer.
It doesn’t matter what kind of capsule wardrobe you are planning to build or what is your tyle, there’s just no way you could go wrong with a white shirt. If you are fashionably creative, you can wear a basic white shirt for a week straight and get away with it.
Tuck it in your bottoms, pair it with whatever, layer it with a blazer and accessorize it with bright colors. Everything just goes well with a basic white shirt.
When we say denim is forever, we mean it! If you want to tone down an outfit, putting on a denim jacket will automatically casualize the look. You can start by trying on the traditional, structured denim jacket and see if it suits you. If not, you always have the looser and oversize denim jacket options that are popular right now.
Little Black Dress
Black is such a versatile color and a little black dress is all you need to pull off party nights with the gals. Not only that, it’s a perfect wardrobe essential too for a fancy first date or a formal dinner. Find one little black dress that fits you like a glove that you know you can wear for various occasions.
Just like how perfect basic tees are paired with anything else, the same goes for tank tops. For warmer weather, this is a perfect alternative to your sleeved tees. They match well with blazers, denim pants or shorts, skirts, sneakers, and slip-on.
A pair of black trousers are another wardrobe essential. It’s a simple clothing item but elegant and classic. Since black is such a versatile color, it pairs naturally with any other colors you might put on. The reason why we love a nice pair of black trousers is because of their ability to slim and elongate the body.
Even if you are not a fan of dresses, it doesn’t hurt to keep one or two as part of your wardrobe essentials, just in case you need them. There are a lot of different dress fits and it’s going to take a bit of trial and error to find the one best for you. But generally, we love wrap dresses because of its silhouette that seems to suit all body types.
Wrap dresses can also be dressed down with a pair of sneakers or upgraded to a formal attire with the right pair of pumps.
