wardrobe essentials every woman must own

A woman’s wardrobe may change from season to season, but many would agree that there must always be a set of timeless, useful basics that can anchor whatever trendy piece or statement item we buy. After all, a strong foundation of wardrobe essentials can easily bring any outfit together, no matter the current fashion trend. But if you’re unsure where to start, fear not as this article will help you identify the wardrobe essentials that should stay no matter what. With these staples in your closet, you’ll never have to worry about not having anything to wear.

Black Dress

When you can’t think of an outfit to wear, let the little black dress save the day. The LBD has been a style staple for decades, and it’s largely thanks to Hubert de Givenchy’s designs for Audrey Hepburn in the iconic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. All in all, it’s a great foundation piece that can be combined with other clothing items to create a variety of looks. The key to wearing it right is by accessorising — with some statement jewellery for a pop of colour or a pair of nude pumps for an elegant look.

Trench Coat

Trench coats are lightweight yet waterproof, serving as sophisticated additions to any wardrobe. No matter what you wear underneath, this coat will always be the classic topper as it’s the piece to go for if you want to stay warm and dry without looking bulky. Moreover, the coat isn’t just for winter, as you can flaunt it during Spring and Autumn too, like we previously pointed out here on Glitz and Glamour Makeup.

Every woman should own a blazer, even if you don’t work in an office. That’s because a blazer is able to instantly transform any casual ensemble to something chic and sophisticated. It could also come in handy if you need a quick professional look. A classic black blazer would be an obvious choice, but you’re free to branch out to other styles and patterns that better suit your style.

Wrap Dress

First popularised in the ’70s, the wrap dress remains to be a timeless piece. Pretty Me makes the case for why wrap dresses should stay in your closet by pointing out how this type of dress look good on any body type. That’s because wrap dresses naturally highlight one’s curves. Another reason is because they’re easy to dress up and down through layering and accessorising.

Every woman needs some comfy sneakers to kick back on the weekends or wear on a casual work day. A pair of white sneakers goes with everything: from jeans and cropped slacks, to black dresses and midi skirts. So if you’re looking to build a minimal footwear collection, these shoes should be at the top of your list.

So it’s time to get shopping and stock up on the wardrobe essentials that will keep you going for 2019 (and years to come.). If you don’t have to money to invest in all the wardrobe essentials on this list, the white t-shirt and little black dress should be top of your list.
