Let’s talk about the five things every woman needs in her closet. And before I start the list, let’s just say they need to be comfortable, too!
Five things every woman needs in her closet
Here are a list and explanation of five things every woman needs in her wardrobe. These basics can be mixed and matched into every outfit:
- Black leggings, yes plural
- Mid-weight cover-up
- Neutral dress
- A perfect t-shirt
These are essential! As a good friend suggested, you need an “around-town” pair and a “dressy” pair. Just like that old favorite pair of blue jeans, the “around-town” pair of black leggings will be the pair that you wear to run errands, paint the bathroom that new hip color, or just to binge watch Netflix. The “dressy” pair will be the ones that you through on when you need to look more presentable in that amazing date night outfit we’ll talk about shortly.
This piece is a personal preference in style. A cover-up is perfect for throwing on top of the dress we’ll talk about next or having near the door when unexpected company rings the bell (cause you know if nobody is over you are wearing a bit old t-shirt).
A mid-weight cover-up can add a touch of elegance or warmth to any outfit. LuLaRoe sells the Joy, Lindsay, Sarah, and Shirley that all function a cover-up or layering piece. I carry the Lindsay and Shirley Kimonos and the Sarah Cardigan in my boutique and would be happy to discuss which is the best fit for you style-wise if you contact me.
This style of dress is dependant on your body type, and if you are not quite sure I offer personal styling appointments to help you figure out what type flatters you best. LuLaRoe carries a wide selection of dress styles, one to flatter every body type.
Let’s just pick one though for this demonstration, the Julia! The Julia is a t-shirt style dress that flatters most body types. It looks amazing on its own, but add a pair of black leggings underneath, a Sarah over it, and your favorite boots or booties and you have just put together an amazing and comfortable outfit!
So many women say they are a skirt-type gal until they find the “right” one. The right one is different for each body type, though some flatter multiple figures. Once you work with a stylist (me, for example) to find that style you’ll see why it hit the top 5 closet essentials.
Let’s discuss the Azure, a midi skirt with a wide yoga-style waistband. This skirt can be worn at the natural waist or a bit lower. Add it to the Julia dress from the previous section and you can make an amazing outfit. And can even be worn as a top and belt it over those black leggings and you’ll have another option. Another bonus to the Azure is that it makes a great bathing suit cover-up, too.
A perfect t-shirt
As the theme continues, the perfect t-shirt does depend on your body type. Check out the article on the sizing to find your ideal shirt.
Let’s focus on the Perfect T. Add that on top of your Juia for a fun fit and flare look! Easy as that! Or wear it with those “around-town” leggings for a comfy, lazy Sunday look and then throw on your Sarah for a quick run to the grocery store for more snacks for the Netflix binge.
