Wardrobe essentials to keep at all times
The pandemic years of 2020 and 2021 brought forth the minimalist in all of us. Not only have we become more conscious of our spending, we have also begun prioritising the existing contents of our closets.
While we are on the subject, let's take a look at some of the 'must-haves' for every wardrobe.
A white t-shirt is a classic with endless possibilities. It is undoubtedly one of the most important wardrobe staples we can think of.
Pair with a denim pants and sneakers, and you got yourself an effortless casual look; a tulle skirt or high-waisted tailored pants would make it look more chic. In winters, the white t-shirt is a perfect fit with all types of jackets.
We may be working from home for the past year or so, but we shouldn't look like we have dragged ourselves out of the bed every time we join a meeting.
This is why a crisp button up needs to be among the front-liners of our closets.
When traditionals are goals
Despite being a traditional outfit, kurtis have become one of the most worn casuals these days. The single piece gives us complete freedom to decide how we want to wear it.
Paired with jeans or leggings, they give a low-effort ever day look. On the other hand, wearing the same kurti with embroidered pants or palazzos and some accessories can take your style up by a notch.
Hence, some kurtis are a must in your wardrobe staples.
The all-rounder bottoms
Jeans are timeless and versatile. With zero chances of going wrong, it is no surprise that we need to keep a pair or two of denims ready to go anytime we want.
Straight-cut or wide-legged tailored pants in basic colours will never let you go wrong for any occasion, be it office or social gathering.
Another necessity in a girl's closet is a pair of leggings. We all have days where finding a pair of bottoms for our kameez or kurti feels like a lost battle. This is where having a pair of black or white leggings will save you from a possible outfit-migraine.
Shoes we cannot live without
There is no one answer to what is more important when it comes to shoes; it's all about your preferences.
A pair of ballet flats is an absolute necessity for all of us. They give us the much-needed comfort, while looking feminine and cute.
Sneakers on the other hand make the perfect companion for a day out.
Pumps may not be used as frequently as flats or sneakers, but we can't deny their importance for occasional and formal wear.
To finish with perfection
Much like shoes, the range of accessories we need can vary from person to person. However, there are a few staples we cannot go without.
For instance, a watch and an all-rounder belt are some items you ought to have regardless of your age, gender or personal style.
A pair of silver studs or golden hoops will never let you down.
