12 Fashion Staples for Your Closet

Make day to day dressing easier, fun, and enjoyable for yourself. Replace your “I have nothing to wear” in my closet with these 12 wardrobe staples.

 

  1. PROPER UNDERGARMENTS!

I can not stress enough how important this is. Give some thought to your undergarment and avoid embarrassing fashion crisis. The wrong kind of undergarment can ruin your outfit. Things like a T-shirt bra, versatile bra, the right kind of underwear, a full body slip, and shapers are essentials in a woman’s closet. Proper undergarments are the foundation of a great outfit and feeling confident in your look. I know you love your striped Victoria Secrets bra but try not to wear it underneath your crispy white tee. I have done this. Cringe! Embarrassing.

  1. A LITTLE BLACK DRESS (MODEST BLACK DRESS)

Every woman should have a LBD. It is chic on its own or can be fun with a couple of accessories. It’s a perfect go-to for any occasion. Find one that compliments your figure.

  1. A TAILORED BLAZER

A tailored blazer is great inside and outside of the office. It’s flattering on any size or silhouette. It’s perfect during the cool springs or over a nice cocktail dress.

  1. A BLACK PENCIL SKIRT

A black pencil skirt works well for a quick business formal or casual, and Sunday evening service look. You can dress it down with a chic striped shirt or tee shirt. You can add a blazer for a more sophisticated look.

  1. A WHITE TEE

You can’t go wrong with a nice white T-shirt. It is versatile. You can wear it as is, with a trendy skirt, layer it, or throw a leopard scarf over it. It’s perfect with an oversized or plaid blazer.

  1. A MIDI SKIRT

A midi skirt is very flattering, womanly, and modest. It’s perfect for church and the workplace. I have long legs and honestly think I look the best in midi skirts. It’s very flattering to my long legs.

  1. THE PERFECT JEAN

Every woman needs a couple of flattering jeans. They’re great for your day to day schedule, grocery store runs, casual outings, and semi-formal wear.

  1. A CLASSIC WHITE SHIRT

The possibilities are endless! Whether it’s for the office, a day around town, or your favorite Sunday skirt, a classic white shirt adds simple elegance.

  1. A TRENCH COAT

Trench coats are a classic. You can wear it over just about anything, look and feel comfortable. It’s an investment.

  1. AN EVENING BAG

You don’t NEED a closet full of purses if you have the right kind of purses. A chic handbag or clutch is great to have. It’s perfect for your evening events and girls’ night outs.

  1. BALLET FLATS

You can still look chic or “dressed up” in a nice pair of ballet flats. They great for long days. You can transition from day to night in them. They will look good with your jeans and button-down blouses.

  1. DAY TO NIGHT HEELS

A pair of neutral hue heels is a must-have. It could be black, grey, or nude. Get yourself some classic pumps, strappy heels or sandals, or some ankle boots you can transition from a daytime look to night time wear.

  1. Well….I DO have the undergarments and the black dress…working on the rest of the wardrobe… 🙂

  2. I agree with all of these styles. I have all of them but the trench coat and ballet slippers. I just don’t think ballet slippers look good on a 50-year-old woman.

  3. I enjoyed reading your post. I have been discussion the issues of dressing nice while remaining modest on my blog as wel; as a matter of fact today’s post was on heelsl. It is amazing how many women fail to see the need for proper undergarments, even when wearing things like pencil skirts! We can look great while maintaining modesty. I appreciated this read. God bless You!

    1. I’m glad you did. I used to be one of those women many years ago until I learned better. Modern day fashion pretty much exposes everything. Proper undergarments almost seem pointless but the word of God doesn’t change just because culture does. Modesty is beautiful. I’m curious to read your post on heels! Do you have a link? I LOVE shoes.

  4. Great list! I have all of the items listed, but some could use an update. I actually saw a beautiful clearance trench coat yesterday but didn’t get it… now I’m wishing I had! Classic pieces make so much sense. And modesty doesn’t equa frumpy! I think that’s a common misconception in our culture today. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you for reading Lindsey. Now is a great time to get one. Since we’re in spring the sales are a steal. Trends come and go and they don’t work well for everyone. Classics are great for any season. I agree. Our culture don’t really get it. I think modesty encourages us to be our best.

  5. Fashion is an area I definitely need help! Thank you for making something that normally is so complicated for me, seem so simple!! I look forward to your post in the future 😊. ~Keishawna
