Someone once said to me, “a woman should have 6 fashion staples in her wardrobe.” At the time, I didn’t really think that it was a thing. As I grew older, I figured out that it actually was. I have 6 style staples in my wardrobe that makes me feel I have my closet in order. It’s still a work in progress. My style changes more often than not. I am always finding new items to add to my style staples list, but for now I will add six that are a must in every woman’s wardrobe.
1. Little Black Dress
There is really no explanation need for this one. Go with a LBD with a high neckline and a semi-modest length to make it versatile from day to night.
2. Skinny Jeans
Jeans never really go out of style. A black pair of jeans are perfect to dress up or even down. You can wear jeans in every season and jeans are for every single body type.
A classic pair of stilettos will never fail you or an outfit. They are the perfect shoe option for your 9-to-5 or even a night out.
Style tip: “Pointed-toe heels are pure magic when it comes to making your legs look longer (and leaner).”
4. Black Pants
Whether they’re high-waisted or pencil straight, a pair of black pants is a foundation piece to invest in. They’re chic and elegant and you can style them any way you want.
Style tip: “Don’t be afraid to invest in these. A great pair will stay in your closet for years and years.”
A trench coat is a good style piece for any wardrobe. You can wear it with a LBD, a pair of jeans and/or black pants. It’s a must-have in every woman’s wardrobe.
A statement handbag can always take an outfit to the next level. It doesn’t have to be designer. It can literally be any brand and any price.
Style tip: “Look for one that you can reach for in a hurry. This means minimal patterns and neutral colors so you don’t have to put much thought into how it will work with the rest of your look.”
What’s in other people’s wardrobe staples:

I hope you took some ideas from this post and from the people who I quoted, as to what to have or add to your wardrobe.
