Let’s face it, figuring out what pieces of clothing you need can be a challenge. Because there are so many things. That is why it is important to know what parts you need to build a good wardrobe. Whether it’s a minimalist closet or a closet full of your favorites, here are 12 essential pieces of clothing that you must have in your closet.
1. Well-Fitted Denim
The most essential of all essential objects. Denim fits differently for every woman. But you have to find a pair that is suitable for your body type! Slim, wide leg, high waist, as you call it. Cut and style vary based on body shape. But it is important to have a pair of simple and clean dark wash jeans with no frills, no trendy bottom hems, and no shine. These styles will not last. High-quality jeans can last for many years, and their appeal increases with age.
2. Comfortable Flat Shoes
Flatties come to the rescue in those days when you cannot just walk on your heels. Do you have a pair of shoes in your closet that you don’t wear because you bought them for a special occasion? Stop wasting money and invest in comfortable shoes that work for you. There are many types of shoes, from oxfords to slippers, from mules to ballet shoes, which are also comfortable and cute. You can have a bit of fun with the style and go for a bright color or a print to add a little spice to your outfits.
3. Black Heels
Nothing is as daring as the woman is walking in high heels. A pair of black high heels solves every evening outfit. No serious wardrobe should be called that without a pair of black heels! A classic heel ranges from the obvious high-heeled shoes to a block heel and kitten heel. The idea here is to find a heel style at each height that is comfortable for you.
4. Perfect White T-Shirt
Every time you open a drawer and find a freshly washed white T-shirt, something magical happens. Everything can go out of style, but the white t-shirt will always be in trend. Let your white t-shirt work and use it as a base for many outfits. This works just as well in your weekend bag, combined with shorts, jeans or chinos.
5. A Black T-Shirt
You wear the black shirt when you don’t know what to wear. Practically the wild card in your minimalist wardrobe. The bottom and the shoes you pair it with will change your look from relaxed to smartly casual. In fact, you can style a black t-shirt in many ways depending on your taste.
