Ten must have clothing in their wardrobe

The choice is sometimes hard, but we're all agreed that it is important to have these 10 clothes in one’s wardrobe:

                                   I LOVE COLOR ! AS LONG AS IT'S BLACK ...   (Coco Chanel)

  • A little black robe: women's clothing by excellence, the little black robe is the must have clothing in your wardrobe. However, it is important to choose according to your morphology for a distinct look. In other words, it must be fluid to hide the curves or belting to highlight the forms, according to your wishes. It is however not recommended to wear it during a job interview. 

  • The white shirt: it's giving you that look so professional and serious. Essential to find a job. 

  • The straight black skirt: associated with the white shirt, it gives you style and elegance while remaining in the professional standards.

  • Black pants: to vary your style at the office, it's a good compromise. 

  • A Navy blazer or a tailored jacket: jackets and blazers give you the look of a strong, responsible and independent woman. At the office and in the city, a tailored jacket sets the tone for your clothing.

  • A trench coat: it is an essential part in mid-season clothing. It's a timeless garment that can bring femininity to the look. In its brown, beige or mid-length version, it gives style and elegance to the clothing. 

  • A cashmere sweater: the cashmere sweater is like the Holy Grail of winter clothing. The only problem is that the quality indicators are not enough. However, once we manage to find the right piece, it is a garment that sets the tone for both your fall and winter clothing. 

  • Jeans: you can never say it enough; the jean is THE essential garment in a dressing room. Indeed, one can imagine running out of everything, except for a pair of jeans. Although it is quite tricky to wear it at the office, nothing prevents you to do it in your professional meetings, just to unwind.

  • Black pumps for formal evenings: for a chic and urban dress, the pumps are probably the most appropriate shoes. Furthermore, if there is a shoe that is a symbol of femininity, it is the pump. No one will blame you for wearing them at the office. For your evenings, they give the look to your dress.

  • Accessories (scarf, handbag, etc.): what would become a woman without her handbag (treasure bag according to some)? Accessories for women highlight your femininity. You can opt for a classic shoulder bag, a black slim belt and a colorful scarf to top it off.
