What every Wardrobe Needs

There are a lot of great trends this season, and whatever your style, classic, funky, bohemian, preppy, casual, high fashion, their are a few basics that every wardrobe needs.

Today is a short list of wardrobe staples.

Signature Coat or Jacket - Coats are something we don't buy every year. So when you purchase your coat for the season invest in the best one you can afford. Choose one that you love and totally reflects your personal style.

T-Shirt - This is something you can have in every color of the rainbow, but if your like me and can only afford a few black, white, navy, and gray are essential. They work great casual with a pair of jeans or with your favorite skirt for a night out.

Scarves - They can instantly update a basic look, add color, and keep you warm on chilly days. Oblong scarves that have animal print, strips, or are tie dyed can be a hot addition to your fall wardrobe.

Jeans - Always choose jeans that fit perfectly and are comfortable. When you find the perfect pair buy two, they may not be around next year.

Jewelry - Layering several necklaces and statements necklaces are big trends this fall (see more jewelry trends here). Find styles you love and add them to your outfit for an instant update.

These five basics will keep your wardrobe fresh and up to date so invest in them, and they will be your wardrobe staples for years.

  1. My favorite wardrobe staple is a good pair of fall boots! This is a great list -- I need to get some more gray in my wardrobe :)

  2. I just invested in a great hot pink peacoat with grey and navy plaid last year. I wasn't sure about it at first as I'm not usually that bold with expensive items, but, it turned out to be a great decision!

  3. Great list!! Don't forget that special handbag!

  4. Sarah, I know I have had a lot of comments lately about people can't wait to wear boots this season. They are the perfect additions to your wardrobe.

    Nancy, your coat sounds really cool! What a great signature piece, have fun wearing it.

    Pamela, you are right a great fitting pair of black pants is a must for every wardrobe.

    Debi, I love handbags so much, I think I will do a post just about handbags. Everyone needs a special handbag!

    Thanks everyone for sharing.

  5. With a finger on the pulse of the fashion world! :D

  6. I have to agree that a couple pairs of boots (black and brown for me) are essential for a fall/winter wardrobe! Especially here in the south where fall doesn't necessarily mean cold weather (notes that it was in the 90s today :D). Jeans and jackets may be too hot, but the boots work in any weather!
