The most common problem women have is getting ready, and somehow they are never on time. If you want to know why, the answer is always the same: they have nothing to wear for that particular occasion. It does not matter if they have a walk-in closet or a regular small wardrobe, whether they went shopping last week or last season, they will always complain about not having enough. But the secret is that you do not need a lot of clothes, just several crucial items that can be combined for every occasion. Here is a list of 10 clothing items every woman should own in her closet in order to avoid long preparations and minor nervous breakdowns.
1. Little Black Dress
The reason LBD is the first on the list is that it is the most universal clothing item. No matter where you are going – to work, cocktails with your friends or a date, you can never go wrong with it. The important thing is to find the right cut for you, as the little black dress has to fit right and then nothing else really matters. You add or remove jewelry, wear your hair up or down, heels or flats, everything goes with it, and you are ready for every occasion.
2. Black Blazer
Every woman needs a nicely fitted black blazer in her closet, for subtle work elegance, or to upscale a daily casual look. Underneath it you can combine literary anything – a dress, a shirt or a tank top, and the best part is that you do not have to worry about its color, as the black blazer can be combined with anything.
3. Pencil Skirt
This smart and elegant clothing item is essential for women, especially the ones finishing with their college days and preparing for the job interviews. You can never go wrong with pencil skirt as it gives you a sophisticated look and leaves a good impression.
4. White Blouse
A classic white blouse is something as universal as the LBD, perfect for every occasion. You can combine it with jeans, skirt, sneakers, flats or heels without worrying about making a big fashion mistake. You can wear it buttoned up for school or work, and later show a bit of skin when on a break or after-work drinks.
Dark jeans can also be combined with almost anything. The most important thing to remember is that they have to fit your figure perfectly, cover your little imperfections and emphasize your good sides.
6. Black Pumps
Women are known for having too many shoes, but the ones that have to have a special place in the closet are black pumps. Then you will never have to worry again if you combined the right heels with the outfit as they are universal.
7. Elegant Flats
It is not just that you need them in your wardrobe, but also in your bag when you are going out in your favorite heels. Most women are aware of this rule, as the favorite pair of heels is the most uncomfortable one, and you will need nice flats to put on instead of them after midnight.
8. Classic Bag
No look is complete without a classic black purse, as you need a good and universal accessory where you can put everything you need to carry around with you.
9. Bathing suit
Even if you do not have any plans for this summer, and you are probably staying at home during the cold winter days and not going to the pool, bikini is essential piece of wardrobe. You never know when someone will ask you to go swimming in the indoor pool or maybe you will wish to relax yourself in the sauna.
10. Nice Lingerie
Just because they are underneath your clothes that do not mean that they should be neglected. Nice lingerie can make you feel good about yourself, and if you know how to choose the right one, they can discretely improve the shape of your body.
