Wardrobe Essentials

Wardrobe basics or essentials are items that everyone needs to have in their closet. Whether you have just graduated college, got a new job, lost a significant amount of weight, or just want new clothes for your wardrobe – you need to start with the basics.

When buying wardrobe essentials, it is always best to choose classically-styled pieces in neutral colors – that way you will be able to wear them with a variety of items you already own and wear them season after season, year after year. You may have to spend a little more money, but these items are investment pieces that you will be able to wear for years. Once you have the basic staples in your wardrobe, you can mix and match them with all the great trendy pieces that come out every year.
