10 Must-have wardrobe items every girl should own
It’s great fun to keep up with all the latest trends in fashion, but you still need some of the staples in your wardrobe to turn to, when you can’t find a suitable outfit to wear. Some things just never go out of fashion, and if you have a good collection of wardrobe essentials, you can mix and match and come up with hundreds of different combinations to suite any occasion. If you have enough of these closet classics to hand, you will never hear yourself utter those well-known words: “I have nothing to wear!” Here are ten of those must-have items that every girl should have in their wardrobe.
1. Ballet flats
When you need something comfortable, but sneakers won’t do, then ballet flats are the ideal solution. They will make jeans look classy and they look good with a dress too. Black and nude are the most versatile colours that you could choose; they will go with just about anything. Ballet Flats look chic enough to wear for most occasions when you want to look smart, but you don’t want to be teetering around in heels.
2. Black trousers
A smart, well fitted, pair of black trousers can be worn with most other things that you have in your closet. They are never too smart to be casual, nor are they too casual to be smart and they always look chic, whatever the current trends may be. Black trousers are a wardrobe staple that will give you so many possibilities, when you are short on ideas for an outfit to wear.
3. A well cut blazer
A blazer is a great outer garment for the fall, when it is too cold for no coat at all, but not cold enough for your heavy winter coats yet. Blazers are another wardrobe item that looks just as good with a pair of jeans as they do with a cocktail dress and they are smart enough to make a casual outfit still look right to wear to work.
4. A black evening dress
The black evening gown or a black cocktail dress will always look sophisticated and stylish and it’s a wardrobe essential that you will be able to use over and over again. The beauty of a black dress is its simplicity and, with the right accessories, you can make it suitable for evening wear for a formal black tie event and for something a little bit more relaxed.
5. A striped shirt
There is very little that a striped shirt won’t go with. Pair it with a skirt and it will look sophisticated, or wear it with jeans for a chic, casual look. If you have a selection of different coloured stripes shirts, they will go with pretty much any other fabric and look just as good with florals, as they will with plain colours or more stripes.
6. Dark denim jeans
A pair of jeans just has to be a part of people’s wardrobe, these days, but if you want to make them more versatile, go for the darker coloured denim, rather than the washed out look. Dark denim will compliment more types of other clothes and they are suitable for more different types of occasions, because they look just that little bit smarter. The darker the denim, the more slimming the jeans will look, so that’s another good reason to keep at least one pair of dark jeans in your wardrobe.
7. White tee shirts
A selection of white tee shirts will always come in handy as well. They can look great with jeans, skirts and you can wear them under sweaters, or wear them to bed. They are probably the most versatile of all the wardrobe items that we could mention and a definite must-have in our list of things that every girl needs to own.
8. The classic white button down shirt
There is no end of different ways that you can wear a classic white shirt and they are great to have as a fall-back item when you can’t find anything else that you like, and they always seem to look stylish.
9. Slip on sneakers
When you need something comfortable on your feet, but you don’t want to look like you just left the gym, then slip on sneakers look a lot more stylish than even the cutest pair of running shoes. You can walk for miles in them and they look cool with many types of outfits.
10. Classic pumps
Our final choice for every girl’s wardrobe are a pair of classic pumps that will be as good for the office, as they are for evening wear. Flats may be more comfortable, but for style and elegance, you will never beat heels. When you have a pair of neutral coloured pumps in your wardrobe, you will always have something elegant to wear on your feet.
