Today, I’m going to be doing wardrobe essentials. Basically, this is a checklist of the basics you need in your closet so you can come up with any outfit for any school day!
You don’t have to follow this list to the T; adjust it to your style and to your personal needs. But, through the years, I’ve found this list to be helpful so I want to share it with you guys as well!
Let’s get cracking!
1. 4-5 Pairs of Jeans (that fit well)
2. A Classic Dress
3. 4-6 Basic Tank Tops
4. 1-3 Cardigans
5. 1-2 Dressy Tops
6. 1 Pair of Nice Dress Pants
7. 1-3 White Button Down Shirt
8. 1-2 Jackets for any season
9. 1-2 *Winter Coats
10. 1-5 Summer Skirts
11. 3-5 Pairs of Opaque Tights/Leggings
12. 3-5 Basic T-Shirts
13. 1 Cozy Hoody
1. 1-2 Pairs of Casual Flats
2. 1 Pair of Black Pumps
3. 1 (or more) Pair(s) of Sexy Heels
4. 1 (or more) Pair(s) of Sandals
5. 1 (or more) Pair(s) of Slippers
6. *1 Pair of Rainboots
1. A Limitless Amount of Good Quality Bras and Panties
2. A Good Quality Everyday Bag
3. *A Cool Hat
*This is dependent on the weather in your country.
And those are your wardrobe essentials! If you didn’t already know, you shouldn’t buy all of these in one go. Haha. Add to your wardrobe slowly and find pieces you like that suit your needs. Oh, and you don’t have to have all of these, like I said before. According to research, this is what fashion experts (read: Google) say you should ideally own. I don’t own a cool hat or a pair of dress pants, but oh well.
Also, this is applicable to ANY wardrobe, whether you’re a school girl or a working girl! And unless you’re required to wear a uniform to school or work, well… That sucks, but it’s okay! You don’t have to worry about an outfit combination everyday. :D Oh, and my favorite thing to do to spice up my uniform was wearing really bright colored underwear. It drove my teachers insane (because I studied in a private Catholic school for 11 years)!
Hm, I don’t really need to explain the photos do I? It’s too photo heavy, I don’t think you guys will bother reading anyway. Hehe. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post where I talk about ”School Bag + Desk Essentials”. :)
But anyway, list the items you think are your ‘wardrobe essentials’ below! I love reading your comments. :D
