One of the questions we, at #fbo, are asked the most often is which are the essential items that every woman should have in her wardrobe. We have heard your cries and this article will discuss 10 pieces we feel every woman should have in her wardrobe!


1) Pair of fitted, black trousers

A pair of black trousers that are tailored and fit you well will take you from the office to drinks after work, to a dinner party. This is one of the most versatile  o easy to mix and match and it can be worn at any time of the year!

2) Pencil skirt.

If you own a good quality pencil skirt in a neutral color or black that fits just below the knee, you have a piece of clothing that will last you for many years to come. Pencil skirts really are timeless classics and can be worn to work, to a wedding, to a cocktail party and so much more.

3) Classic white t-shirt.

So often, we struggle to find the perfect top to wear with our new skinny jeans, our cheeky shorts, or a pair of slacks. A fitted, white t-shirt is incredibly versatile and will save the day whenever you need something to match a variety of skirts, jeans, shorts, or simply something neutral to wear underneath something more elaborate.

4) Blue skinny jeans.

Owning a pair of great quality jeans is definitely a wardrobe staple! We recommend investing in a pair of skinny blue jeans that make your backside, hips, and legs look amazing. With such a pair of jeans, your wardrobe woes can be a thing of the past as you can either dress them up or dress them down, and they will take you from shopping at the weekend to a casual party with friends to a big night out with the girls.

5)  Classic heels.

Did you know that a great pair of shoes can really make your outfit pop? Conversely, if you wear a mediocre pair of shoes, your otherwise amazing outfit could be spoilt. Don’t allow this to happen and invest in a pair of good quality heels. Classic heels can be worn with a skirt to work for a smart corporate look. They can also be worn with your favorite dress on a date or with a pair of skinny jeans for that elegant and sophisticated look.

6) Elegant scarf.

Sometimes you need to accessorize your outfit to make it unique and elegant. A silk scarf is a perfect accessory to pull your outfit together. Try and get one in a muted or neutral color so that you can easily mix and match it with what is already in your wardrobe.


7) A tailored Jacket or Long coat.

Looking for a new job? Or perhaps you need to attend a high-level meeting and want to look your very best? Have a tailored jacket or long coat will always help in making a good first impression. Try and buy your jacket in black or navy blue so that you can wear it for many years to come!

8) A great looking coat

It always pays off to invest in an item of clothing that will keep you looking stylish and keep you warm. A great coat will not only keep you comfortable in the cold but can also be the final element to layer your outfit with.

9) Sneakers.

When it comes to casual wear, your wardrobe is not complete unless you have a pair of comfortable and stylish sneakers! These you can wear with your jeans, shorts or even a dress for a casual and relaxed look.

A shift dress can look amazing when worn with a jacket and heels for a smart, corporate look. It also looks great when you dress it down with flats, a funky jacket and some costume jewelry.
