A lot of us have a work wardrobe overflowing with outfits, but how many times do you open your wardrobe and feel like you have absolutely nothing to wear for work? I know right?
The number one reason for this is, most times, we all literally never start with or even consider the basic or essential foundational piece in building our wardrobe. Essentials or basics, are crucial to help you mix and match with other items you already own in your wardrobe, they are the building blocks in creating effortless style.

A stylish Jacket that you can mix and match will take you to great places
Invest in a jacket that you can wear in different ways – With a smart pant and blouse for work or with jeans for a casual look. Look out for a piece that you can pair with multiple outfits.
Simple solid tops take out the guesswork
While elaborate blouses with dizzying colours and prints are very eye-catching, most times, they are usually lacking in versatility. Consider investing in solid coloured tops in basic colours that can pair easily. I find that owning a simple black, red, green, blue and white vests or tanks, always make for easy styling on days when I can’t figure out what to wear. These pieces are great for both formal and casual wears.
A least two good pair of shoes will keep your heart at ease
Personally, I believe this is one area you cannot afford to scrimp. Every woman needs at least two very good quality pair of shoes. A flat to commute in and run around the office on less formal days, and heels for a more dressed up look. Whatever you choose, ensure the quality is absolutely spot-on.
