The Basics Part 2: Closet Essentials

I feel that the book, Harper's Bazaar Fabulous at Every Age, has the best list for closet essentials. As I mentioned in the previous post, there are many lists of closet essentials out there with basically the same items give or take a few things. The key is to put your own style to each of these items, but in order to build a basic wardrobe you need to have these items in your closet.

1 suit (skirt or pant)



Banana Republic


3 cardiagans (neutral cashmere, colorful cashmere, cotton)



Jcrew




Banana Republic



Forever 21


3 blouses (white button-down, 2 ladylike or printed)


Banana Republic



Express



Jcrew


1 blazer (navy or black)



Forever 21



4 t-shirts (white,gray,colored, striped long-sleeve)- I say add a black t-shirt.


Get what every style of t-shirt that suits you, v-neck or crew.
