Basic Women's Wardrobe

What's your style? What do you like to wear? What makes you feel good? It could be casual, classy, elegant, feminine, or a mixture of all of those.
Essential Shoes
Shoes make the outfit. Every woman should have a pair of sneakers in neutral color, sandals, basic black pumps, boots, and black, brown and colorful pair of dress shoes. 
Basic Hair Accessories
Hair accessories can really accentuate an outfit and give the finishing look it needs. Must have: black hair ties, hair clips, silver barrettes and headbands.
Essential Tops
Line your closet with tops that fit well and look great. You should have five long-sleeved tops. Choose a black one and a white one and different colors for the three remaining.
It's important to have a variety of colors in your wardrobe to keep it lively. Add five sweaters of different colors and styles and well designed blouses. Notice that five is the magic number. This gives you enough clothing options and won't have you doing laundry too often.
Basic Belts
Belts can help finish an outfit or do just what they were made for. You should have a sturdy black belt for pants. Chain belts and scarf type belts can help highlight the waist. A wide red belt looks great with a little black dress – another essential for your closet.
The Pants for Every Occasion
Every woman should have at least one pair of black dress pants, five well fitting pairs of jeans, one pair of khakis, and three pairs of shorts.Choose straight-legged or boot cut pants with a mid rise.
Underwear, Socks and Bras
White underwear, socks and bras are best because you can bleach them.  Knee-high socks are great in winter , and no-show socks are great for summertime.
These thin socks with a stocking like fabric are made to be worn with heels. 

When you have a good basic wardrobe you will feel better and look beautiful. Keep your closet fresh and new.
