Staple Pieces Every Wardrobe Needs
Posted on 28th January 2022
Figuring out what to wear in the morning seems to be like a difficult task if your wardrobe is full of items that you don’t really wear or that don’t bring you joy anymore. And who wouldn’t want to have a perfectly fitted wardrobe only with the clothes they love and enjoy wearing? It’s everyone’s dream! But we know that life isn’t always so easy. However, there are ways to make your closet at least resemble something of a perfect wardrobe. “How do I do that?” you ask. Well, it’s important to invest in staple pieces, which are timeless and fashionable, go with everything and look great on everybody. And here’s a list of a few items we have in mind.
You can just never go wrong with a white T-shirt! You can pair it with any kind of jeans or trousers and it’s still going to look amazing. Moreover, you can really show off the jewellery when you wear a classic white tee. When you really think about it – the possibilities are endless. Decide whether you want a V-neck or a scoop neck and get it in a good, not see-through material. You can either dress it up or down, depending on your mood and the occasion.
Whether you work in the office environment and you need to throw on a blazer for those weekly meetings or you just want to look a little bit more classy on a night out, a neutral-coloured blazer is exactly what you need. A well-tailored blazer can really go a long way, and it’s truly an essential piece when it comes to any wardrobe.
This item is probably one of the best layers you can have. After all, style and fashion are all about layering your clothes in a correct and trendy way. Choose a simple denim jacket that will be just perfect for those chilly spring mornings or colder summer nights. If you don’t know which one to go with, try them on – the jacket should be light enough to wear as a layer and warm enough for when the temperatures drop.
Now this is just a true classic! Every woman needs to have a little black dress to wear on a night out or on a date, as this is the piece that is timeless. Paired with the right jewellery you can achieve the desired look and go enjoy your day. You can just never go wrong with this, as you can style it in many ways. Wear it with your favourite trainers and a denim jacket to dress it down, or go for black pumps and a blazer for more of a classy look.

It’s common knowledge that two things never go out of style: the colour black and ankle booties! Just like with your black dress, you can style them anyway you want – either for a night out or just to run errands around town. This is a staple piece definitely worth investing your money in.
Who doesn’t love a good quality leather jacket that would look great on them season after season? That’s right, this is one of those items that proves to be slightly edgier than your usual pieces but again, it works as a great layer and gives you that “rocky” look. Pair it with your white T-shirt and skinny jeans (either black or blue) and you’re good to go! And, on top of everything, this bad boy will keep you warm when the evenings get colder, so it’s definitely worth splurging on.
Are you one of those people who just need to have a pair of skinny jeans or else their wardrobe doesn’t seem complete? That’s completely understandable. After all, they are flattering and versatile, what else would you want? With this piece make sure that you own something that’s comfortable and good quality – you don’t want to struggle wearing them. And it’s fine if you’re not into super skinny jeans. Just pick something that hugs your figure nicely, and shoot for a darker wash, as it can take you from day to night in a heartbeat.
This is an undeniable staple piece. You can just never go wrong with white trainers! Of course, they are difficult to maintain and keep clean but they are so worth it! You can pair them with virtually anything and you’d be comfortable and would look fashionable. And the greatest thing about them is that there’s such a huge variety of white trainers on the market! Everyone will find something they truly love and would wear constantly.
Finally, we’ve covered all the basic items that you simply must have in your wardrobe. Whether you have all of these pieces or most of them, we encourage you to revisit what you’ve got and take another look at your collection. Maybe even think about upgrading some of the items if they’re worn-down and you don’t really wear them anymore? Keeping your wardrobe up-to-date is quite important if you want to look your best every time you go out.
