WARDROBE BASICS- ITEMS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE





How many times have you looked into your closet and thought, “I have nothing to wear.”
If you hear yourself uttering this statement more often than not, you have a dysfunctional closet. It is probably missing several key pieces that allow you to easily transition from one outfit to the next. It’s time to stop the insanity and get a functional closet.
The perfect ten — ten classic pieces that should be in every woman’s wardrobe — is the best remedy to a dysfunctional closet. It’s truly amazing the number of outfits that can be made when these ten items rest in your wardrobe: at least thirty-two different combinations.
Along with your signature item, the majority of your shopping budget should be spent on classic, well made versions of these items that fit your personal style.

Here are the 10 things you need for a functional closet:

BLACK SUIT
Purchase at least one basic two to three button black jacket with either matching black skirt or black pants. Make sure it’s made of a lightweight, seasonless material like gabardine or rayon and contains a small amount (no more than 5%) of spandex/lycra to ensure a quality fit.

WHITE DRESS SHIRTS
This is an important closet staple and can be both trendy (wear underneath your favorite t-shirt) and classic (wear with a business suit). Head to stores  for high quality, basic cotton shirts.

BLACK PUMPS
Make sure your closet has at least one pair of one to two-inch plain black pumps that takes you from the office to dinner.

GREAT FITTING JEANS
Every closet must have at least one pair of great fitting jeans. Two are even better.

BLACK DRESS
A closet staple, the “little black dress” should be made of a sturdy but lightweight fabric like a cotton/rayon blend. Avoid heavy wool fabrics that counteract the slimming effects of the color and limit wear during the warmer seasons.

THREE SPANDEX T-SHIRTS
Purchase three cotton/spandex shirts in the following colors: black, white, and another, brighter color (that suits you well). These shirts help stretch your closet and are perfect for layering as well as wearing alone. The Perfect Fit stretch t-shirts are the best.

TOTE
A good tote bag serves double duty as a briefcase during the week and a shopping bag on the weekend.

SNEAKERS
You’ll need one pair of sneakers that can be worn both for workouts and casual activities like shopping.

DARK SLACKS
Two pairs of dark slacks - either black or navy blue. Go with a slim cut in a wool crepe or a seasonless cotton.
One pair of dark slacks for the evening with a fuller cut. These can be a fabric that drapes either a light wool or jersey mix.

THREE SKIRTS
Three skirts - a pencil skirt, a A-line skirt which incidentally looks good on all body types and a skirt in a neutral fabric so you can mix and match with others items like tweed, wool or boucle.
