Heading out of the house in the morning could be pretty easy if everything you need is already laid out and ready to go. For busy ladies, mixing and matching clothes in the morning can be time-consuming. Imagine if all the pieces of clothing you have in your closet go well with one another. You’ll have less time to worry about baduy or inappropriate OOTD, and more time to think about how to slay the day.
Whether you’re jumping into the KonMari method, something triggered you to simplify your wardrobe, or someone inspired you to invest in worthy clothing items, congratulations! You’re on the right track.
While you’re on it, we narrowed down seven items that should be in your closet (so you don’t have to).
Plain white tees
As they say, nothing beats the classics. The plain white tee (or any crisp plain shirt for that matter) is a versatile piece. You can step it up with a structured coat or dress it down with a comfy skirt and flowy cardigan. It is also the perfect backdrop for any kind of accessories.
Plain button-up top
Just like the plain t-shirt, this top is the gray area between polished and laid-back look. You can pair this with classic pumps and trousers for a formal event or wear comfy shorts and sneakers for an afternoon picnic.
No matter what the day is, with the right combination, a plain button-down will never fail you.
Little black dress
Simple, elegant, versatile, and comfortable — what more can you ask for when you have a little black dress? With length and style that suits your height and body, the LBD will let you rock on from day to night.
Remember, trends may come and go, but LBD is here to stay.
Before the word elegant intimidates you, sit back and read on. While most of this wardrobe essential is quite on the pricey side, it is definitely an investment—and besides, you can find great ones in thrift stores?
You can wear it on business meetings, you can hang it on your desk chair for unexpected events, or you can fold or roll up the sleeves for a chic evening look.
Not sure what might come ahead? Come prepared with your favorite black plants. Just like all that was mentioned above, this suits any occasion, plus, if you invest in the right piece, it can complement your body.
Do you want to look polished even if you’re a tough commuter? The right Ballet flats will get the job done for you. The trick when buying this shoe, aside from finding the right fitting pair, is to choose a neutral or basic color, so all you have to do is slip it on in the morning and conquer whatever comes ahead.
With all that’s been said, the key to simplifying your wardrobe (and your life) is not the price tag or the number of clothes you have. To ace the game of fashion, pick the ones that suit your body, lifestyle and are versatile.
