So, next time you go shopping, make sure you don’t just buy anything and everything that you see; stock up on these staples instead. Ms Sakshi Rathore, Department of Fashion, JD Institute of Fashion Technology, narrows down the 25 wardrobe essentials every woman should have.

Perfect pair of formal trousers

A perfect fitting pair of formal pants will go a long way. It can make you look like the power woman that you are with a cute blouse and an accessory to go with. If you don’t have one, invest in one right away.


A classic leather belt 

Team it up with your pair of denims, that formal suit or with a bright summery dress. This wonder belt goes well with everything. These are few examples that how versatile this little accessory is.


A LBD that flatters your body for those night outs

Get it the skater style, a bodycon, with an empire waist or in the wrap style, whatever flatters your body. One little black dress for almost all occasions is a must have.


A pencil skirt 

This goes without saying, right? One pencil skirt for a formal meeting, and if you wear a sequined top with it, it will be perfect for your club night as well. Keep the length in mind, though. It should be neither too short nor too long; just the perfect length, and you’re covered.


One statement heel

A statement heel is one accessory that everyone should own. Pumps, stilettos or peep toes, go for the one that is the most comfortable and flatters your feet nicely.


A scarf

Not only ‘a’ scarf, we’d suggest you to hoard as many as possible! It’s the best accessory to spice and brighten up a mundane outfit.


A perfect summer dress

One summer dress in the most summery colours can brighten up the dullest of days. And summers aren’t far away, so go get that perfect dress right away.


A ballet flat

High heels can cause major callouses, so this alternative is to give your feet the love they deserve. And because they go perfectly well with every freaking outfit.


A red lipstick

If you’re ever feeling dull before work, or just like that, go ahead and put on a red lipstick, and see the world change!


A men’s style watch

Because they look super sexy on a woman’s wrist. Shouldn’t that be reason enough for you to buy one?
