Have you ever experienced going on a lunch date with your girlfriends; you are very excited to dress up for your mandatory “groufies” then when you opened your closet, you got extremely overwhelmed by the huge pile of clothes you have but still didn’t find anything to wear? I used to have that dilemma every time I go out. It always felt like I don’t have any decent or fashionable clothes and accessories even though in reality I have quite A LOT!!!
Eventually, I realized that women must have a set of wardrobe essentials or a style staple. Having your go-to fashion pieces from head to toe would allow you to lessen the confusion you have when you are choosing the clothes you are going to wear plus it will let you easily create different looks! After all, a true blue fashionista knows the art of “mix and matching” clothes.
While these fashion wardrobe essentials vary from one fashionista’s perspective to another, the considerations are pretty much the same.
You must be wondering, what should these fashion wardrobe essentials be like?
It’s very simple, try to consider these three things when you shop for clothes and fashion accessories:
Versatile and Wearable
Consider their versatility and wearability. Is it something you can wear from day to night? Can you wear them for casual and formal occasions? Of course, if it’s going to be your style staple, it shouldn’t be something you can only wear once for a specific event and then you can just toss afterward.
Another consideration would be its colours. The choices are limitless when it comes to colours. You can play with a variety of hues that best suit your taste in fashion. I personally love neutral-coloured (specifically black and white) clothes and accessories because they can be easily mixed and matched and be transformed into different looks.
Lastly, comfort. You wouldn’t want to wear something you are not comfortable with, right? I prefer clothes with breathable fabrics, accessories that aren’t too heavy, and shoes that I can comfortably walk with for hours.
