Basic clothing is important. Preferably black and white. Having these basic items in your wardrobe will help you know your style.

Here are my list of basic items you have to have in your closet.

1. Skater Skirt – Skater skirts can be worn for smart casual events, as a school outfit and also in the office. Skater skirts can be worn with any foot wear. Just mind the length of your skirt if you’re wearing heels.

2. Pencil Skirt – For a more formal environment, a pencil skirt can be worn. I usually wear pencil skirts to work. But, you can also wear such on a casual day. Pair it up with sneakers and you’re good to go!

3. Shorts – For running errands, lazy days and laid back days, shorts is a to go to piece of clothing.

4. Little black dress – This, for me, is the most important piece of clothing every woman has to have. You can wear it to every event! May it be a semi-formal event or a formal event. Jazz it up with accessories, wear shoes appropriate for the event, pair it with a nice bag and you’re good to go.

5. Tank top – For work outs, casual events, a tank top can be used. Wear it with a cardigan, a blazer, a necklace and you’re okay! Pair it up with jeans, shorts and skirts.

6. Plain blouse – Same with the use of tank tops. But with this, you can wear this to a party without the cardigan or blazer. You can even wear it to work. Make sure you have a nice bottom clothing and shoes.

7. Button-down blouse – Who wouldn’t want to wear a crisp white button down blouse? Another go to piece. You will end up looking fresh and clean with a white blouse. Best to pair it with jeans.

8. Blazer – Blazers (in different colors and patterns) are a must. An attractive blazer will make a dull outfit (and day) better!

9. Skinny Jeans – I like skinny jeans. It’s comfortable and you can wear it anywhere. Especially if it’s black. You can wear it to work even. Wear the right blouse or shirt (then you may put on a blazer) and heels then you’re okay!

10. Leggings – I use leggings for work outs or for errand days. Makes me move faster! It’s also good with boots. Just always remember to wear a long blouse while wearing leggings.

11. Trousers – For working women, you gotta have at least one in your closet. For lazy days at work, wear this with a colorful top and there you go.


So what do you think? Well, this is my personal list and what's basically inside my closet. If you have any suggestions, or items you want me to add, let me know!🙂
