What do you have in your wardrobe, and what does it say about you? While you don’t need copious amounts of clothing to help you look good each day, there are some basic staples that everyone should own to help them mix and match their style, be ready for the changes in season, and see them through fashion styles.

The reality is compiling a practical wardrobe with some essentials isn’t that hard. You simply need to invest in some high-quality pieces that have staying power through fashion seasons, such as a men’s stripe pocket tee or a good winter coat, for example. With this in mind, let’s look at what else you need as a staple in your wardrobe.


Circling back to the above point, you always need some reliable classic T-shirts in your wardrobe as standard. They can be a go-to white tee, a sleeveless tee, a short or long-sleeved black tee, and so on, depending on your style. Whatever tee you choose should be something that matches your other choices and can be worn time and time again in a variety of different ways.


Everyone needs a good shirt or blouse in their collection. This can help you have something more formal or lightweight when required and can be a great way to style up an outfit for a more refined or classic look. From a basic white shirt with both long and short sleeves to an open-neck blouse that can be paired with a maxi skirt or jeans, you need to look at the style choices you are happy with, and that compliments your style.


Jeans are a must-have and are ideal for taking you through the seasons. A good pair of well-fitting jeans can be worth their weight in gold, and you can dress them up or down depending on the weather and the rest of your outfit. Invest in a high-quality pair that will wear and wash well in a color that you feel more comfortable in, i.e., light wash, dark blue, black, grey, and so on, so you can wear them time and time again.


You need at least one good piece of knitwear in your wardrobe. Be it a jumper, cardigan, dress, or sweater, find something you adore and make it a staple in your wardrobe. This can allow you to layer up on cold days, wear something to protect against the autumn breeze, and provide you with style even form just being draped over shoulders or to provide comfort when you need something that hugs your body and keeps you cozy. It can be as thick or lightweight as you need, but you need at least one piece of knitwear.

A Good Pair of Shoes

Lastly, you need a good pair of dress shoes and pumps at the very least. A casual pair and a smart pair will be able to help you dress for the occasion. While many people have multiple pairs of shoes in reality to form a core wardrobe you need a stylish pair of classic dress shoes ideally leather if you can and a pair of more casual shoes that see you through each day.
