7 Wardrobe Essentials (Basics) for Every Woman

There are some items every woman should have in her wardrobe. Having these basics automatically increases your outfit options while ensuring you always have something to wear.

1. The White ShirtFind a white shirt that fits you perfectly- then buy more than 1 shirt or get some at a swap party for variety. If you are getting more than two – get one in a size up (if the weight gain days ever come).








2. The fitted t-shirtsThese are a wardrobe staple like no other – in winter they can be worn in layers and in summer, a fitted t-shirt, a pair of jeans, a jacket and some accessories and you are looking like a million dollars!




3. The Jeans
Yes... find your perfect jeans.... fitted (but not skinny) a shade of blue that is not so faded it cant be dressed up... stops right at your ankle and make you look slim... now that you have found it – get as many pairs as you can afford – the jeans is not a seasonal fashion piece.






4. The Black structured jacket
A structured jacket will dress up any outfit – paired with a casual dress, it becomes office wear... paired with your white shirt and jeans – voila! Its business casual... You can wear a good structured jacket with almost anything... go forth and get one!






5.The pair of black trousers or black skirt
This is another wardrobe essential that will play its part in widening your option. This can be combined with any colour of blouse or shirt – either a skirt or a pair of trousers will do








6. The Ballet flatsI’m one of those women who wouldn’t wear their heels for miles... why ruin my legs/feet? I have loads of heel wearing years to go! So I tend to wear my ballet flats and change into my heels and vice versa... Please don’t do that trainers on suit, trainers on dress combo – its irritating... wear ballet flats instead.

Get quality ones and they will last you for years.






7. The versatile dress
As you can see I didn’t say the little black dress (LBD). Your versatile dress could be black or tan or some other pale shade that goes well with your skin... however do note that wrap dresses are usually more versatile than others... they can be dressed up with heels and jewelry or dressed down with ballet flats or taken to work with a structured jacket!







So if you haven’t got some of the pieces above... now you know what essential items to look out for next time you go shopping... or swapping :)


N.B- Details of our next swap event will be coming up soon. It's on Saturday, Aug 27 so save the date!
