In a perfect world, we’d all have the closet of our dreams – filled to the brim with every cute shirt we’ve seen while shopping, every lust-worthy pair of heels we’ve double-tapped on Instagram, and every piece of expensive jewelry we’ve seen on TV ads. Sadly, we don’t live in a perfect world, and unless you’ve recently won the lottery, chances are your closet doesn’t look like what we just described. So until we hit that mega-million jackpot, we’re sharing ten pieces of clothing (and accessories) that every woman should have in her closet to get her through.
LITTLE BLACK DRESS:
Ah yes, the quintessential little black dress. It’s a classic for a reason. Whether it’s for a funeral or a dinner date, it’s the go-to in your closet for looking (and feeling!) classy and put together.
WELL-FITTING PAIR OF JEANS:
The term ‘well-fitting’ is probably the most important part of this, because most women don’t wear jeans that fit them properly. Invest in a great pair of jeans that make you feel great. From there, you’ll be able to dress them up or down depending on the occasion.
Another classic must-have is the white tee. Pair it with a pair of jeans, or some shorts, or over leggings – or with almost anything. Make sure it’s not see-through and you have a classic to take you from lunch to the beach to the bar and everything in between.
We say classic because these are the opposite of trendy. We’re not referring to those colorful heels or strappy sandals – we’re talking a simple nude or black pump or simple heel that you can wear with almost everything for any occasion.
This is a must-have to turn any outfit into a semi-professional one. Whether it’s for a job interview or a meeting or to dress up an everyday outfit (pair a black blazer with jeans and a white tee for the perfect outfit!), a black blazer never goes out of style.
From the office with slacks or tucked into a pair of denim, a simple, non-patterned button-down shirt is a must-have. For ladies with big busts, make sure the buttons aren’t ready to pop open near your ladies – we don’t want that!
Bonus points if it’s versatile enough to wear both at the gym and on the town! A simple pair of sneakers can be dressed up with a cute outfit, but also work for your workouts – and it’s a must-buy for every lady!
It’s a rule universally acknowledged that most women are wearing the wrong size and type of bra. Try meeting with a bra-fit specialist the next time you’re going underwear shopping, and make sure those girls are held in, held up and not going anywhere!
“THROW ON AND GO” DRESS:
Every woman should have one of these in her closet to save her time when she’s running late. This dress ideally fits well and doesn’t require much effort beyond throwing it on or zipping it up.
These beauties can work with just about any outfit to take it from casual to chic in 2.5. These don’t have to be expensive, they just have to look like the finishing touch to any outfit – because, well, they are!
