Wardrobe Essentials That Every Girl Has To Have...

March 15, 2017

As we all know, trends are changing faster than the weather. One day, something is mega popular, and tomorrow it is “passé”. But, some things are always trendy, no matter what Kim Kardashian wears on any given day. Versatile and basic garments are things that keep any outfit together; so, I created the ultimate list of essentials that need to be in your wardrobe and your life. Take notes.

Starting from the bottom:

No, this is not a Drake song reference (or maybe it is?). I decided that the best thing would be to start from the most beloved piece of them all: shoes! Carrie Bradshaw mode – on.

Ballet pumps

Many girls don’t enjoy wearing high heels (actually all girls, but some just decide to put up with it). This is where ballet flats take the stage. They’re a great solution for the times when you want to look fancy but don’t want to wear heels, or when simply your feet become super sore because of heels. Comfort + chic = ballet flats.

Strappy sandals

There’s no way to get through summer parties without these cute life savers! Genius footwear inventions like classic black single strap leather sandals will never go out of style. I would tell you to run to the store to get a pair, but you probably already have them.

Black heels

Classic black stilettos are also one of the most popular footwear items that can give flats and sandals run for their money when it comes to versatility. They can be worn literally everywhere: the workplace, fancy cocktail parties, night outs and movie dates. Talking about a must have huh?

Quality running shoes

It doesn’t matter if you are much of a runner or not, these are really useful. You can use them for their original purpose which is running, or you can embrace the athleisure trend and rock them with your jeans and bomber. Not to mention that you definitely won’t wear your heels on road trips or when you go hiking, right?


Let’s get straight to the point, shall we?

Monochrome  T-Shirt

The best color options would be black or white, but if you are a fan of something more “fun” go for it. The major thing is that you are comfortable in it. And it doesn’t matter if you are a little bit on the chunky side, you can shop at swap.com and find that “right Tee” for your sexy curvy body.


They’re great for layering outfits because they add that cool chill street fashion vibe and, at the same time, they keep you warm – which is a win-win scenario. You can pair them with pencil skirts when you’re at the office, but you can also pair them with your jeans and your “right Tee”.

Skinny jeans

Do I even have to say anything? You just have to have these, period.

Black skinny jeans

Same as the last “paragraph”, oh my God.


We all know the saying: every girl has to have that one perfect emergency little black dress. You just have to find the one that suits any weather condition and almost any occasion. Consider maybe a chiffon or a satin one; since now, in the year of total fashion freedom, you can pair it with your Chuck Taylors if you want. Just make sure you find the one that hugs your body and points out your best features.

“Just for fun” dress

Every LBD has to have her JFF sister. It’s that one dress that doesn’t look that practical at first glance, but it feels so good when you wear it.

The right bra

This part can be extremely tricky. First, it has to be 100 percent comfortable. Second, it has to work underneath as many garments as possible. You might want to measure yourself to find the perfect size.

Let’s have a little fun, shall we? The key is in finding the one in which you are feeling sexiest. Lace? Silk? Push-up? You go girl”

No-show undies

Sometimes we can’t even trust thongs. Seamless panties are a must for all of you who often wear lightweight fabrics and fitting pieces.


A watch

Not only it will help you to be on time, but it will also help you to look fabulous while doing it. Especially if you opt for a stylish metal one. Not to mention that it is also a great layering piece.

Cool shades

We all need to have that perfect pair of sunglasses that will make us feel like Jackie O. Find the ones that fit your face shape best and hide your tired eyes from strong sunrays, and do it with style!


It is a must-have last minute accessory for date nights, cocktail parties or clubbing. You can’t drag your supersized handbag everywhere, right?

Leather handbag 

The size is up to you, since only you know how many daily essentials you have. When it comes to shape, opt for strong and firm handbag instead of a sac one, since they last much longer and look way classier.
There you have it, some essentials you simply need to have in order to be ready for every situation. If there’s anything from this list you’re missing, there’s no time like the present to correct that.
