8 Basic Wardrobe Essentials Every Woman Needs

Good morning! Well, I’m back home and I’ve got a lot of unpacking and laundry to do. Oh fun! I always pack more than I need and then I spend half the day putting it all back.

As I was looking at my wardrobe I realized I have some basic pieces that I wear a lot and I’m always mixing and matching them with other pieces.

So today, I wanted to share  8 basic wardrobe essential that we all need.

8 Basic Wardrobe Essentials Every Woman NeedsThese are the pieces that need to last. I would suggest buying them at places like Banana Republic, Gap, or J. Crew or find them at my personal favorite store, TJ Maxx.

Here are the 8 basic wardrobe essentials:

A sophisticated white collared shirt and a long sleeve and short sleeve white t-shirt. These are great for layering!

A Chambray Shirt.  The Chambray shirt can be dressed up or dressed down. Great fitting jeans. I recommend having jeans you can wear with high heels and another pair to wear with flats. Jo-Lynne at Musings of a Housewife wrote a great post on Finding the Right Jeans. You can check it out here.

A slimming A-line skirt and a “little black dress”.  These are a closet staple, and should be made of a sturdy but lightweight fabric like a cotton/rayon blend. Avoid heavy wool fabrics that counteract the slimming effects of the color and limit wear during the warmer seasons.

Beauty For the Heart~~I have this scripture underlined and circled in my Bible. As much as I love fashion and beauty tips, I know where true beauty is found. This scripture reminds us what beautiful women look like and this is what we’re striving for!

Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. This is how the holy women of old made themselves beautiful. They trusted God and accepted the authority of their husbands. 1 Peter 3:3-5

Have a blessed day!

  1. This was so helpful! This is also the third time in two days this verse has been brought to my attention…perhaps I need to study it further! 🙂

  2. Considering I have a closet full of clothes, but don’t have half of these items, I think it’s time to purge and SHOP! 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration! Wish you could come clean out my closet for me and then show me what to wear to Blissdom!! 🙂

  3. Yay! I have all those things except for a black blazer….I have red, green, blue, aqua, pink, beige, white, grey, charcoal and navy, though! I feel like I am off to a good start, at least! Now, to put them together and not look like a frumpasuarus….:-)
