10 Wardrobe Essentials

If you're like me and need a new upgrade on your wardrobe, then you've come to the right place. I recently spent a whole year on a slight spending freeze and just finished an entire month of June 2022 on a strict No Spend Challenge. You can read more about the no spend challenge here.

I didn't really buy anything for myself while on my "financial detox" Meaning I didn't buy any unnecessary stuff throughout the year. I made do with what I had. The clothes in my closet were in constant rotation. Now that I’m slowly starting to purchase a new wardrobe, I thought I should first share the closet essentials you need and that I'm currently shopping for.

Here are my 10 closet essentials to start you off

  1. Tshirt - Black and white

  2. Button-up Top - Black or white

  3. Blazer - Black or a neutral color of your choice

  4. Jeans - Black and white

  5. Black Dress for every occasion

  6. Casual pants - Black, white, grey, blue, tan, or brown

  7. Tank top - Black, white, brown, tan, grey

  8. Casual Shoes - a neutral color of your choice

  9. Black pumps/heels

  10. Neutral Jacket to style with the majority of your outfits and clothes.

There's no need to rush and buy everything at once. Build your wardrobe essentials over time.

I’m currently doing a closet audit.
