It goes without saying that every young woman’s wardrobe is comprised of different pieces and accessories that make it unique to the individual’s taste. But we’d be remiss to forgo the fact that there are just certain closet staples that should live within every woman’s wardrobe regardless of age or space. Having a certain set of items makes curating outfits that much easier. 

We’re here to walk you through those must-haves as you continue to build your wardrobe. With these closet essentials, you’ll be able to craft cute brunch outfits, sultry date night ensembles, and effortless casual getups.

The Little Black Dress

The little black dress hanging in your closet should be one that makes you feel your absolute best. Whether that’s a skin-tight bodycon or a flowy A-line number, your perfect LBD should come out on special occasions where your confidence needs to be at 110%.

The Denim Jacket

Denim jackets have taken over the recent fashion scene. So much so that it appears that nearly every human being within 100 miles of a Forever 21 seems to be rocking one on a daily basis. Whether a jacket with fraying, holes, or acid-washed rinse, or none of the above speaks to you, you can shop knowing that your idea of the perfect denim jacket is attainable.

The Moto Jacket

Biker jackets are totally in and they have been for as long as we can remember. They’re simple, polished, and edgy, no matter how tattered they may appear. Stylish for a nighttime concert or a daytime adventure in a new city, a leather moto jacket pairs well with just about everything in your wardrobe (trust us, try it out!). Don’t be afraid to splurge a bit on your moto jacket — the higher the quality, the longer the wear.

The Black Blazer

Even if you don’t work in an office that’s strict on dress code, having at least one blazer in your closet that is flattering to your silhouette is a must. Blazers are also great additions to non-work outfits! If you’re just looking to add some luxury to your closet, a classy black blazer is the way to go.

The Strappy Sandal

Strappy sandals are the ultimate answer to formal wear. Whether you’re suiting-up for a meeting with your company’s executives or headed out for a first date in the city, finishing off your outfit with a strappy sandal is always a good idea. Not only are they sleek and effortlessly polished, but they’re incredibly easy to pair with dresses, jeans, skirts, and more.

The Turtleneck Sweater

When it comes to staying warm, few pieces of clothing compare to the knit turtleneck sweater. In addition to being ultra-fashionable, turtleneck sweaters are excellent for women who live in fast-changing seasons. Whether you’re a New Englander or Pacific Northwestern native, unpredictable weather is the norm. Tackle the cooler months with a turtleneck sweater and jacket combo— this way you’re always ready for whatever Mother Nature delivers next.

The Belt

Even if your pants and skirts fit perfectly around your waist and hips, a belt is a great accent piece to add a splash of color and personality to any of your outfit selections. Invest in a belt made of durable materials to ensure you get the most bang for your buck. Experiment with animal prints, touchable textures, and shiny finishes if you’re looking for an edgier than your average leather belt.

The Staple V-Neck

No matter what season you’re living in, V-necks are dependable tops for layering under jackets, running errands in, or using as basic garments to complement statement accessories. Consider dishing out more money than you typically would for a V-neck of higher, more durable quality. Your wallet will thank you years down the road, trust us!

The Perfect Jeans

Maybe you like a relaxed boyfriend fit or prefer the way a good skinny jean makes your legs look long and lean. However you define your perfect pair of jeans, be sure to have at least two go-to pairs in your closet that you can grab for any occasion.

The White Sneakers

Though it doesn’t quite double as a running shoe, the classic white canvas sneaker is an absolute essential for the woman-of-all-trades who loves to dress up, dress down, and everything in between. Not only does the white sneaker look great with jeans and dresses, it also works in a business-casual setting or even on a night out with the gals.

With these fabulous wardrobe staples, you’ll be well on your way toward outfit curation mastery.
