Wardrobe essentials every woman needs

Whether you’re a fan of a classic capsule wardrobe or simply love experimenting with clothes, there are certain wardrobe essentials every woman should own. These staple items will never go out of fashion so by investing in good quality pieces, you can rest assured that you will have plenty to mix and match to be the best dressed leader in your field.

Wardrobe essentials Basic tees

Short and long-sleeved tees are perfect on its own or underneath a blazer or biker jacket if you aim for an edgy look.

Little Black Dress

Dressed down or up, an LBD is a universal life-saviour. Do you have a last-minute meeting and worry about what to wear? Team up your dress with a pair of classic heels to show who is the boss.

Button-up shirt

Whether you’re into androgynous dressing or simply want to look polished, you can never go wrong with a classic button-up shirt. With so many patterns and colours available, pick your favourite one to wear with jeans or a pencil skirt depending on an occasion.

Dark wash jeans

Dressed down or up, dark wash jeans are super flattering no matter what your body shape is.

Trench coat 

A trench coat is the most versatile and classic item every woman should have in her wardrobe. Pair yours with slouchy jeans and trainers for a dressed down look or team with a white shirt and tailored trousers for work.

Knee length skirt

Pencil skirt or A-line…A great knee length skirt is versatile enough to be worn for work and on weekends.

Black or nude heels

They will do wonders to any outfit.

Classic flat pumps

Don’t feel comfortable wearing heels all day long? Invest in leather flat pumps.


Have you always associated a blazer with a boring office job? Well, I’m a firm believer that every woman should have at least 1 blazer in her closet. Wear one to a formal meeting or in the evening with a cocktail dress to keep chill at bay.


Knitwear works well with literally everything in your wardrobe. If you want to invest in a good quality one, pick a cashmere sweater.

Leather jacket

A leather jacket is a timeless piece that can be worn season after season.

Tailored trousers

Bootcut or cigarette, they will always look good.
