The Essential Guide to Classic Basics

Post by Taislany Gomes • March 12, 2020 • Decor

Every wardrobe needs a basis and this basis should be your classic clothing staples. You can then begin to add more colourful and more unusual pieces. However, if you don’t have your classic basics in your wardrobe then you will really struggle to put outfits together day after day. So, what classic clothing garments should every woman’s wardrobe boast?

The first staple you should own is a pair of black trousers

The first staple you should have in your wardrobe is a pair of black trousers. Black trousers are great because they go with anything; any colour, any style of top, any style of jacket – literally anything! Furthermore, black trousers are suited to all occasions, you can wear them to work, you can wear them when going for a drink with your friends, and you can wear them whilst popping to shops. They will never look out of place. Thus, if you are looking for something to wear and having a bit of trouble, you know you can always count on your trusty pair of black trousers. 

Invest in a stylish day dress 

Once you have added a pair of black trousers to your wardrobe, you then need to concern yourself with a day dress. This is a garment that is often overlooked. However, if you are in a rush and on your way to a lunch or a drink with someone, then there is nothing easier than slipping on a trusted day dress and walking out of the door. This is a staple whereby there are no stringent rules regarding what to look for. You simply need to make sure you keep it conservative and don’t show too much, after all, you may be on your way to a meeting. 

Make sure you buy a crisp, quality shirt 

And finally, the other classic staple you need to add to your wardrobe is a crisp shirt. Opt for a pale colour, such as white, light blue, ivory or lilac. These colours go with almost anything and their lightness offers a great contrast to your classic black trousers. Of course, a classic white shirt is never going to let you down, and so we would definitely recommend adding one to your collection if you do not have one already. There are so many occasions whereby a trusted white shirt is ideal! If you look at outfit ideas for country festivals, you will see that a white shirt is always a real staple, and then the rest of the outfit can be built on this. If you’re going to work, a trusted white shirt and pencil skirt or trouser combination never fail. You can also glam up a white shirt for a few drinks with the girls. The options are endless.


If you add these three garments to your wardrobe then you will have the basis for some fantastic outfits. When it comes to creating a great wardrobe, you always need to make sure you start with style staples, and this will make putting together outfits a lot easier.
