The ongoing, always frustrating dilemma women around the world are faced with on an almost daily basis… a full closet and nothing to wear!
This wardrobe essentials checklist is designed to help you stock your closet with items you’ll get the most use out of while always sporting a fresh look. Each item is labeled for it’s particular season(s).
Trying to pack a bag for vacation poses a whole other issue in itself. To help, you will find an asterisk next to the items you can’t leave town without!
This compilation is different than most wardrobe essentials lists in the way that it has a trendy, modern twist to it. I didn’t want to list all black pieces with the occasional white button down and pencil skirt for flare. You already know those things work. If you are looking for more of a classic look, feel free to tweak any of my suggestions to bring it back to basics.
