You’ve probably felt like you have nothing to wear when you stroll into your closet.
It’s almost certainly because you’re lacking some of your basic wardrobe staples. The foundation of that wardrobe on which you’ll create your stylish home.
As you read this article, get a pen and paper or pull out your phone, and as you go through the different categories, note down which one you don’t have in your wardrobe.
Instead of becoming distracted by all the flashy items the next time you go shopping, concentrate on just what you need to create that foundation of your wardrobe with your basics.
Let’s get this party started.
The white t-shirt is the first category of basics that you should have in your closet. You knew I’d say something like that.
I have a number of them. In the summer, I have a fairly light v-neck that I wear. In the winter, I wear to a heavier cotton version.
You might also want to consider acquiring a black t-shirt. Although you won’t wear it as often as your white t-shirt, a black t-shirt might serve the same purpose.
It may be worn with a lot of these patterned or statement pieces if you don’t know what else to wear. It has a completely different appearance from a white t-shirt.
You might want to consider adding some colors or more neutral tones of basic t-shirts to your wardrobe from this area. That depends on your color scheme and whether or not you enjoy color.
Button-up White Shirt
A white button-up shirt is the next piece in your closet that you absolutely must have.
A white button-up shirt can go so far that it can take you somewhere that a white t-shirt can’t. This one is going to be a little more polished.
With a lot of your statement bottoms, a white button-up shirt will wear great. Even with really basic clothes like basic jeans or basic shorts, it looks a little dressier or more professional.
A white button-up shirt adds a touch of class to the ensemble, making it look more polished.
A black, white, or neutral taupe sweater falls into the next group. You might be able to get all three.
All three are in my possession. My favorite sweater is a black cashmere one that I wear all the time. This is a super-lightweight cashmere sweater that I’ve worn with everything.
These are ideal for cooler weather or when you simply want a longer sleeve. It doesn’t have to be a cashmere sweater, but it should be long sleeved and made of some sort of knitted sweatery fabric.
Before I get into some of the important bottoms that you’ll need, I’d like to point out that if you obtain a strong solid foundation of basics, you can put together a lot of ensembles with just those basics.
They’re all compatible with one another. In an ideal world, you’d start with all of the basics and then add in a few statement pieces and printed things to create the ideal small wardrobe.
You’ll want to invest in a good pair of medium or dark wash jeans for your basic bottoms.
It doesn’t have to be an extremely dark wash, but neither do you want your main basic jean to be a super light wash, since it is a look that doesn’t always work.
Simply ensure that these medium to dark wash jeans are a good fit for your physique. I adore high-waisted jeans, but you must make sure that they fit your body type.
A black pair of pants is another pair of bottoms that I believe every woman should have. This could be black jeans, slacks, or trouser pants.
Trouser pants are another pair of pants that every woman should own. They’re a terrific addition to your closet.
They do something different from the usual jeans and black pants.
They have a totally distinct appearance. They may be dressed up or down, they can give off a business casual or hipster vibe, and they can be worn with sneakers.
They’re just incredibly adaptable, so I think you should absolutely consider adding them to your basic collection.
The final pair of basic pants or bottoms that I would recommend is a white pair.
This could be a pair of white shorts, white pants, or a combination of the two.
In the summer, I wear both. If you live somewhere where it gets really hot and humid, they are a terrific way to look put-together while remaining comfortable.
White is unmistakably a spring and summer color. It appears to be fantastic. A white coat is always attractive, even in the fall and winter.
In this article, I’m going to talk about two different dresses.
The first is a dark-colored dress. Everyone needs a little black dress, no matter what’s going on in the world.
It’s up to you what it looks like, but it should be something you can wear to funerals, black tie events, cocktail events, and weddings.
The other piece of dress you’ll need is a casual go-to dress that you can wear to practically any occasion.
Maybe not for the wedding, but it’s perfect for lunch, something casual, or something that can go from day to night, or something for supper, and it’s easy to dress up or down.
Button-up shirt dresses spring to mind when I think of this category, because you can wear them casually with the included belt or dress them up with a more elaborate one. It appears to be a little more formal. They’re simply highly adaptable.
For our basics, I’m going to mention three jackets.
Trench jackets are extremely elegant.
Consider the following scenario. A white t-shirt or a white button-up. A pair of jeans, a trench coat, and sunglasses complete the look. You’d look fantastic and timeless!
The other necessary jacket (you may disagree with me on this, and that’s fine) that has been an essential in my life and that I have several of is a moto jacket or a leather jacket.
Is it necessary for it to be a moto jacket?
I have three of them, none of which are black, and I wear them all the time.
I’ve worn it so many times since it produces such a cute outfit without having to work too hard, and it gives a completely different look than a trench coat or any other type of coat.
Even if you’re not a blazer type or don’t work in a corporate environment, a blazer is the next essential jacket you’ll need.
Here’s why I enjoy blazers so much.
When you’re in a rush, you can throw on a blazer over whatever you’re wearing and seem put-together.
A blazer in a neutral color, such as beige or white, should be included in your blazer. A black blazer may not be your style, and it may not always work. The lighter, more neutral colors appeal to me.
However, you must do what is best for you.
A blazer is an essential piece of clothing to have in your closet. You receive one, keep it for the rest of your life, and you don’t have to worry about it.
If you don’t already own a pair of white sneakers, I recommend getting some. Take a trip to the store to see how they are feeling.
I adore a brightly colored sneaker, and I own many pairs that I wear on a regular basis. My white sneakers tug on my nerves at times. I’m looking for some color and something different.
However, I always return to them.
White sneakers are a classic that never goes out of style. They’re timeless, and they can make everything appear more relaxed.
A black boot is another necessary shoe. Although I recommend black, you may prefer brown. Brown boots are my favorite. Black, on the other hand, goes with everything and is a timeless color. When you want it to seem dressy, it can look dressy, and when you want it to be casual, it can look casual.
It is capable of performing all tasks. All you have to do now is pick a black boot that works for you.
You should also have black sandals or heels, as well as nude sandals or heels.
It’s possible that this is a closed toe, but it’s also possible that it’s an open toe. To be honest, I prefer to wear nude heeled sandals over black ones.
I like the naked look, but I think black is a must-have. It’s one of those things you probably don’t need right now, but you add it to your list and buy them later if you discover a decent pair that are both comfortable and attractive on your feet.
Another shoe that has been an essential in my wardrobe, and it may or may not be for you, is a loafer.
This is a completely distinct style that appears to be very classic, preppy, and stylish.
You’re wearing medium to dark-wash jeans, loafers, a white button-up shirt, and sunglasses, and you’re looking effortlessly stylish.
If you’re going to wear these items, you’ll also need seamless underwear.
Let’s assume you’re wearing your white polo shirt, white pants, and sunglasses, and you’re trying to put together that pricey trendy outfit to make yourself look very fancy, and you get panty lines. Everything is visible.
It completely degrades the situation!
All you have to do now is purchase seamless underwear.
If you’re going to wear these, you should definitely invest in some seamless underwear. It’ll be the difference between success and failure.
I hope you found this helpful and that you learned something new. I hope you made a list so that the next time you go shopping, you know exactly what you need and don’t need.
