10 wardrobe essentials for women

Putting together the best wardrobe you possibly can is always a challenge, as there almost always seems to be an item you’re missing or craving. Some people just have too many clothes in their wardrobe, which makes choosing an outfit difficult. However, with our helpful guide, you can build your ideal closet with these 10 wardrobe essentials for women.

Wardrobe essentials for women

Now, when we say 10 wardrobe essentials, we don’t mean that you only need 10 items in your wardrobe. These are items that are essential for you and your everyday life. They’re 10 items of clothing – or accessories – that you can mix and match with all kinds of other women’s clothing to create outfits that suit you.

Here are 10 wardrobe essentials for women that you absolutely must have in your closet:

  • Plain white t-shirt
  • Striped t-shirt
  • Jeans
  • Tailored trousers
  • Black pumps
  • White trainers
  • Blazer
  • Coat
  • Knee length skirt
  • Black dress


Every wardrobe needs a combination of t-shirts, and the best wardrobe essentials for women include a plain white t-shirt and a striped t-shirt. A plain t-shirt can be matched with almost any outfit, whether you’re trying to dress more formally for a work meeting or interview, or they can be dressed down for an afternoon out with friends.

A plain white t-shirt can easily be worn with a skirt, jeans, shorts and much more. It’s a brilliant wardrobe essential for women.

Jeans & trousers

Very similar to the t-shirts, you’ll need a good pair of jeans that you can trust in almost any weather and social setting. Jeans are great to wear in the office and for a day out shopping, or even to a restaurant in the evening. A great pair of jeans in a lighter shade can match with almost any top you plan on wearing.

Also, if you can, pick up a pair of tailored trousers, because they’re another item of clothing that have great durability for almost any setting. Fancy dressing up a little more for the office? Perfect. Want to stand out while having drinks with friends? Even better. A great pair of trousers goes a long way and are classy wardrobe essentials.


We’ve all got plenty of shoes (some more than others!) but a durable pair of women’s shoes is an essential wardrobe item. Black pumps and white trainers are wardrobe essentials for women because they can be worn in so many different ways.

A good pair of black pumps means you don’t need to invest in a new pair of black shoes for every event, while white trainers can be thrown on with jeans, shorts, a skirt, joggers and so much more. You can wear trainers while out for comfort, and even in the office on a dress-down day. Consider something like these Runaway Lace Up Chunky Sole Trainers for your wardrobe.

You can also swap one of these items out – possibly the pumps – for a good pair of heels that you can wear while out dancing the night away and in the office.


Whatever the weather, you can never truly go wrong with classy wardrobe essentials like a blazer or coat. Consider this Oversized Blazer in Nude for your wardrobe. It would be perfect for dressing up and dressing down, and isn’t too thick that it would result in overheating on warmer days.

Similarly, a coat like this Refy Tailored Belt Detail Puffa Jacket is another great wardrobe essential for women because of its durability. Wear this in winter and spring to feel comfortable and warm.

Dresses & skirts

Dresses for women come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and styles, but you can never really go wrong with a plain black dress. A dress like this Knitted Roll Neck Mini Dress is an example of a classy wardrobe essential that you can mix and match with other items in your collection to form a wonderful outfit.

A black dress is timeless, sophisticated and ageless, so is a must-have wardrobe essential for women.

Also, a knee length skirt is a fantastic wardrobe essential as it can be worn with all kinds of different clothing. The first of our wardrobe essentials for women was a plain white t-shirt, and that can easily be worn with a skirt, and in most environments.
