Use this list as a guide when shopping for your wardrobe essentials.
1. A piece of outerwear:
A trench coat, an overcoat, a denim jacket, or something heavier-weight, is a must have.
2. A leather jacket:
A leather jacket whether genuine or vegan is cool, it's easy, and it shows style without making any real effort.
3. Button-up shirts:
Whether worn in a very casual, fun way or super-corporate, a button-up shirt works. Invest in a couple. Go for a white and a black, or other colors that you like, but stick with neutrals. It's a lot easier to play around with those.
4. A great-fitting suit:
This does not have to be expensive. You can get something relatively inexpensive and have it altered. Just make sure it has a tailored fit. Again, choose a neutral color: It can either be a darker neutral (like black or gray) or a lighter neutral (such as beige or cream). A suit is not always corporate attire. You can break the suit up into a blazer and black pants or a pencil skirt, and you can wear it in so many different ways beyond your work wardrobe.
You will eventually need knitwear at certain times of the year. Stick with something relatively neutral that really flatters your body shape. You only need two pieces: Consider one cardigan and one pullover.
A T-shirt is something that van be dressed up or down these days. Enjoy them neutral colors of black, white, brown, gray or in pops of color.
Denim is a major wardrobe essential to dress up and down. Decide on the shades you like and the fit by trying on multiple options. And then, once you've narrowed it down to a pair of jeans that you know that you will appreciate for many years to come, get a couple of pairs of those jeans, in different colors, such as a black that will go with almost anything, and a pair of blue, which is universal.
You’ll want to go include. a white sneaker. They’ll never go out of style and it goes with everything. You might want something dressier for work or special occasions. Go for a heel, but in a more neutral color, such as nude. For those days when you don't feel like walking around in a heel all day, try a dressed-up flat that isn't a sneaker. Go for something neutral, again. A black is perfect: It's going to go with pretty much everything in your closet.
9. A belt:
Every now and then, you'll want to jazz up your outfit. A statement belt does exactly that. The statement belt isn’t about function; it’s about fashion. Look for something that you know you'll wear for years.
10. A dress:
Keep it super simple. You can go for a little black dress or a little whatever your favorite color is dress. Choose one that makes you feel confident, something that goes well with the other pieces in your capsule. Look for a classic shape, like an A-line dress or a sheath —a fit you can rework endlessly.
