10 Basics Every Woman Needs in Her Closet

Hey cupcakes! As I am about a month away from graduating college (YIKES!), the "real world" is fast approaching. This realization has made me start going through my closet to evaluate if the clothes I have are adult enough... 🤔 Through this experience, I thought you all would appreciate if I shared the top 10 things that I think are essentials for any woman's wardrobe. 👚 Let's jump right into it!

1. Dark denim skinny jeans - I think every woman needs a pair of nice fitting denim skinny jeans, as they can be styled in so many different ways! Dark wash jeans have always been my favorite, as I think they add a bit more class to jeans in general compared to lighter washes.

2. Neutral cardigan (black, navy, or grey) - I basically live in cardigans (usually oversized ones), so of course I think some sort of neutral cardigan is a must-have in your closet! Pick the color that will go with most of your pants, dresses, skirts, etc.

3. Black pencil skirt - A classic black skirt can be styled up or down, so I think a pencil skirt is essential (even if you aren't a business person!). Plus, I love how pencil skirts hug all of the right curves. 😀

4. Nice sweater - Having a nice, dressy sweater is great! Bonus points if the sweater itself is super comfortable yet not too hot (as sweating in a sweater is never a fun experience).

5. Pair of neutral flats/heels - This definitely depends on your personal preference... I am not really a heels person (as I like to embrace my 5'3'' height) so my black flats are worn a TON!

6. Plain v-neck shirt - A plain v-neck is always great to have in your closet, as it can be dressed up or down and will never go out of style. Having a couple of colors to choose from is a smart idea too!

7. Classic "Little Black Dress" - A "LBD" can be styled in so many ways (check out my suggestions!), so you need to have one on hand at all times. 👍

8. Dressy blouse - Just like the plain v-neck, having a nice blouse will go a long way with the other essentials in this list. I suggest having a neutral colored one as well as a fun color (such as pink, purple, or a print/pattern) if you are a working adult. If you want a full list on my essentials for the working woman, check out that post here!

9. Sneakers - Depending on the brand, sneakers can also be dressed up or down. I suggest getting a pair from Nike or Keds if you are looking for a lot of versatility in your wardrobe.

10. Comfy t-shirt - I am always a fan of busting out a comfy t-shirt every once in awhile! My fave recently has been the Kennedy Space Center shirt I bought in this Thrift Haul. 🚀
