What are the essential clothing must-haves for women? You may think you need a lot, but not necessarily.
Do you have an endless collection of clothes but when it’s time to go out suddenly you realize that you don’t have an LBD (Little Black Dress) or a plain white tee?
These are just two of the essential wardrobe that a woman needs. If you have them, you no longer have to buy a lot. Because buying a lot of things that you don’t get to use won’t spark joy!
We are going to list down the top 10 essentials on a woman’s wardrobe.
You can literally have only 10 things in your closet.
If you are considering a minimalist lifestyle this is a good place to start.
1. Plain White Tee
Who says you can’t slay with a plain white tee? This is a versatile staple that you can wear all throughout the year. During the summertime, you can pair it with jeans and you’re good to go. Or pair it with printed shorts for a pop of color.
If you’re feeling cold, just top it with a denim jacket. It also layers perfectly with any sweater.
2. LBD (Little Black Dress)
A little black dress is totally an essential must-have, no explanation needed. You can wear it to formal or corporate events. Just pair it with a blazer to look more modest.
You can also wear it on a date night with your partner or for a girl’s night out with your besties. Really, you can never go wrong with an LBD!
You can typically wear a little black dress from day to night.
3. A Pair of Jeans
Having a perfect pair of jeans is the go-to outfit that you can always count on. Your jeans could be blue denim jeans or leggings that hug your hips for extra comfort.
You can pair jeans with a simple white tee for a clean and simple look. Or pair it with a colorful top and you’ll still slay it.
Jeans are a very versatile wardrobe essential that you can wear all year.
4. A Blazer
A stunning blazer completes any look. Wear a sweater and some matching pants and wear them to work. You can wear it with your favorite jeans and a shirt and it’s a casual look.
Wearing a blazer gives you that extra kick of confidence, not to mention that fact that it looks very professional and empowering.
Blazers come in different cuts and styles.
The right blazer will fit perfectly to your body like it was made for you, not too tight.
You will still be able to move comfortably.
6. Flats and Black Heels
Flats and black heels should be brought together. When your feet hurt from wearing heels all night, you can change into your ballet flats or any flat type shoes.
Black heels are for that perfect occasion: a fancy dinner, an important meeting, or a Broadway show. You should really consider comfort, transportation, and where you’re going.
Flats are for a casual day at the office or if you’re going to the mall or getting groceries. Flats can be paired with absolutely anything. You can pair them with jeans, shorts, a skirt, and even slacks.
7. A Bathing Suit or Bikini
A woman needs a good bikini or a one-piece suit. You’ll never know when that trip to the beach will happen or when you’ll be hanging out by the pool.
You should buy a bathing suit or bikini based on your body type. Buy something sturdy, something that won’t give you a wardrobe malfunction no matter how strong the waves of the beach is.
Consider your destination and what makes you feel confident and comfortable.

8. An Everyday Bra
A good bra is always a good investment. It is definitely an essential wardrobe item.
You can be wearing a perfect outfit but it would ruin your day having back pain from a very tight band. Or if you’re wearing the wrong size, your breasts would spill over the cup.
Choose a bra that’s comfortable, with durable foam, and the right cup.
You can get one in black or in skin tone. You can buy a strapless one for other outfits that require strapless bras. Or buy something that has removable straps so it’s convertible.
9. Everyday Accessories
Buy a few pieces of jewelry that you wear each day that would go with every outfit.
Jewelry is an essential must-have in every closet to add spark to any outfit, for example, a pair of versatile earrings, a necklace, a bracelet, a watch, hats, scarves, and sunglasses.
Accessories are essential in adding life to your wardrobe.
For example, A fedora hat would go perfectly with a plain white tee and blue jeans. A simple necklace would complement a plain black dress.
10. A Pair of Sneakers
Sneakers come in all shapes and sizes. Some sneakers may be perfect for the gym, but not for everyday wear. There are slip-on sneakers and there are gym sneakers that you can wear exclusively to the gym or when you go for a run.
