2- White sneakers

While we can’t resist a sexy heel, it’s not exactly the most comfortable choice for running errands or to go shopping. White sneakers are a must-have in every woman’s closet as they are extremely versatile and can go along with everything- from jeans to cropped slacks and a wide leg pant.

3- A pair of well-fitting pants

Every woman needs a pair of well-tailored ankle pants, preferably in a neutral color. We can’t help but take inspiration from Audrey Hepburn in this case. The style icon gives us major goals when it comes to wearing an ankle-grazing trouser with oomph and sophistication. It’s a chic alternative to a faded pair of jeans and instantly makes you feel more dressed up. All in all its a perfect way to look made up without going over the top. We love this black high-rise ankle pant from Gap.

4- A little black dress

If there is one thing that is a must-have in every woman’s closet, it is a little black dress. Thanks to the sophistication and simplicity it exudes, fashion gurus have deemed it a classic. The little black dress was inspired by the utilitarian uniform of shop girls, nuns and maid. Needless to say, the little black dress became the game changer when Coco Chanel introduced it into the fashion scene in the 1920s.

Today, a little black dress is a woman’s first choice, especially for last-minute occasions. Dress it up with elegant heels and shiny jewelry, and you’ll be good to go.

5- A chambray shirt

While owning a white shirt is important, let’s not forget how chic a chambray shirt looks on women. There is so much you can do with a denim button-down shirt. It suits all body types and makes you look less preppy than a white oxford. Plus, it is also a great piece that can be used for layering! Pair it with a party dress or wear denim on denim to rock the look. There are countless options! This chambray shirt by F21 is a perfect wardrobe staple for women of all ages and sizes.

6- Black leggings

You can’t survive without owning multiple pairs of black leggings. They’re the perfect solution for going straight from the gym to a friend’s place for dinner. Plus, they offer the same comfort level like sweats but look much put-together. What’s more, you can wear it with a hoodie, a tunic or a shirt-dress for some coverage.

7- Go-to Accessories

It can be difficult to decide which accessories go well with your outfits. After all, there is so much to choose from. Earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets, watches, scarves- the list is endless. Women have a tendency to go overboard while shopping for accessories. Stick with the basics like diamond studs (even faux ones will work), delicate jewelry like a gold chain with a pearl and a classic watch.

Keep track of the things you already own and wear them often instead of buying new ones and forgetting all about the ones stashed away in your dresser.

8- A big tote

Our style experts recommend investing in a large tote, preferably in a neutral color so that it can go well with all your outfits. The bag should be large enough to carry all your everyday essentials and should be sturdy enough for times when you go traveling. A leather tote works well for short overnight trips and can even substitute as a diaper bag if you’re a new mum!
