There are clothing articles that meet seasonal trends, and then there are staple pieces that stand the test of time. A well-rounded wardrobe has both! In this week's Wardrobe Fashion Style Report, we give you our top 5 wardrobe staples that every woman should have in her wardrobe.
1. A tailored pant
Every woman should have a pair of smart, tailored pants in her wardrobe! Whether it's in the office, out to dinner or a formal function, a good pair of slacks can tick all the boxes. Pair them with blouses, T-shirts, tailored jackets, or an eye-catching top.
2. A classic shirt
A simple, classic shirt that's easy to layer so that it can be worn as part of a wide range of ensembles is a must-have. This could be a traditional structured shirt or a simple blouse - the key is to avoid a busy detail to allow for mixing-and-matching.
3. A pair of great fitting jeans
A good pair of jeans is a quintessential Australian lifestyle piece and a wardrobe must. Arguably the most versatile article of clothing you can buy, you'll get lots of wear out of a pair of great fitting jeans. A dark pair of denim will generally be the most versatile and can be worn day or night!
4. A weekend / travel dress
For times when you need to dress in a hurry, need holiday-friendly wear, or simply want to throw on something comfortable without foregoing style, a staple weekend dress (or multiple) is definitely an item every woman should own in her closet. Opt for plain colour or a fun print that's unlikely to date.
5. A mix-and-match jacket
Lastly, every woman should have a smart jacket that's easy to team with any of the above articles. One that can be layered over dresses and tops, and paired with both casual and formal bottoms will be worth it's weight in gold for years to come! Contrasting floaty dress fabrics with structured jackets and other outerwear is always a winner.
