4 Essential Wardrobe Staples You Need to Have In Your Closet

With fashion ever-evolving, it’s difficult to think that there will be such a thing as a wardrobe staple. However, as much as you’d want to play around with different styles, sometimes, it’s best to just go for what looks good on you. 

If you need to build your wardrobe using practical staples you can mix and match with other women’s clothing pieces and accessories, don’t worry. Here’s a quick guide from Hekaya’s team to get you started.

1. The Classic White Tee

When it comes to something casual and formal, nothing will beat the classic white tee. It’s the perennial pick that is crucial to have in your wardrobe. Whether you’re in the mood for casual women’s clothing or you’re going to a formal event, the classic tee is versatile enough to work well with whatever type of outfit you need to construct.

Feel free to partner up your classic white shirt with your favourite pair of jeans, tuck it into a flowy skirt, or layer it with a stylish jacket—the possibilities are endless!

2. A Structured Blazer

One of the best techniques to build fabulous outfits is layering. Wearing a structured blazer can enhance any simple ensemble. All you need is some statement jewellery to make your outfit pop. 

From a casual day over a classic jeans and tee to the boardroom or night out with the girls, a Structured Blazer is the piece your wardrobe will always thank you for. 

3. The LBD (Little Black Dress) 

 One cannot go wrong when it comes to a little black dress. Karl Largafeld famously said, “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress.” 

The classic simplicity of a little black dress is essential in every woman’s wardrobe. It is the embodiment of sophistication, elegance and versatility. The one piece you can turn to in your closet when you have no idea what to wear. 

4. A Button Down White Shirt 

The white button down is the backbone of your wardrobe. Similar to your favourite pair of jeans, the white button down is the building block for any classic outfit. It very well could be labeled as the most versatile piece of any woman’s closet. 

Worn tucked in or loosely hanging, over a dress, tied up, or dressed up for work just to name a few. The possibilities are endless.
