So, I have to be honest. This blog post is certainly one that I definitely have been looking forward to writing about. And I really think it will be a great starter for you if you want to make some changes to your wardrobe or you’re just now getting started.
In my opinion, you should have 5 essential, versatile items in your wardrobe. When I say versatile items, I mean items (from shoes, to clothing, to accessories) that you can use over and over, by mixing and combining with different pieces to create outfits. If that doesn’t make any sense, just keep on reading and we’ll get down to the nitty gritty. Here are my top 5 essential wardrobe must-haves.
A plain white/black t-shirt : A plain white or black t-shirt can come in handy for so many different things. You may need it to wear underneath another top that may be too revealing. Or, you might want to go for a simple look and pair it with a denim skirt or jeans. It’s a versatile item that can be used for so many things. So I don’t see any reason why not to have one.
Medium-washed denim jeans: At first, I was contemplating whether I like dark-washed or medium-washed jeans. But medium-washed denim jeans have proven more essential for me. Dark washed jeans tend to become incompatible with dark colored tops. I just like the versatility that medium washed denim jeans give you. You can wear light colored tops without looking too washed out and you can wear dark colored tops without it being too dull.
A black blazer: I absolutely love blazers. Whether you’re going for a professional look for a job or you want to add a bit of snazziness to your spiffy look, a black blazer can get it done. You can pair a black blazer with a pencil skirt, with jeans, with a dress, a romper, or even a jumpsuit.
Nude closed-toe heels or flats: People know me for wearing heels. I wear heels all the time. But not every one is a fan of heels. So flats can be another option. But, my favorite must-have are my nude closed-toe heels. Nude heels can brighten up a look. It grabs attention without grabbing too much attention. I pair my nude heels with professional looks and simple, chic looks, like jeans and with a cute blouse or top. Nude is an earth-tone, neutral color. So you don’t have to worry it about clashing with any colors.
A little black dress: Yes. The classic little black dress. A black dress can be used for a comfortable, casual look or you can glam it up for a more classy look. And it can serve for so many different occasions, from going out with your friends to attending church. Whether you wear it with heels, flats, sandals, or even Converses or Vans, that little black dress definitely provides the versatility you need.
So, there you have it. Those are my top 5 essential must haves for your wardrobe. Items with so much versatility is so convenient and it helps save money because you can mix them and use them to create different looks.
