Good morning! Lately I have read many articles with titles like “50 Classic Pieces You Need for Your Wardrobe” or the “25 Absolutely Essential Items Every Woman Needs in Their Wardrobe” which had me thinking about my own wardrobe. I am not a trendy person, not for my home or my wardrobe. I have always loved classic pieces.

That said, I have learned as I age to find classic pieces that fit not only my body type but also my lifestyle. I work from home so I do not need a lot of skirts, dresses, heels, etc. My wardrobe essentially consists of yoga/workout clothes and “other clothes”.

My winter wardrobe consists of white t-shirts, and button down shirts, white or dark jeans, and a cashmere sweaters peered with ankle boots. If I am dressing up it is a “little black dress” or a skirt and a blouse.

In the summer I like cigarette pants, or shorts paired with white t-shirts, or white button down shirts. Don’t get me wrong I love a beautiful linen dress or a colorful sundress as well but for the most part that is my summer “uniform.” So tell me, do you choose classics for your wardrobe? Or do you like trendy pieces? Or perhaps a combination of both?
What do you consider the top 5 classic wardrobe essentials? Is their a brand that you gravitate toward? Do you have a “uniform” or “go-to” pieces that you turn to again and again? I am looking forward to hearing your classic choices.
Below are some of the items that I read “were classics for every woman’s wardrobe?” What do you think?
Have a great day!
