Now that you have watched my Wardrobe Overhaul and have been inspired to clean out your own closets, let’s make sure you have the ten wardrobe basics as a foundation to every modern Mom’s wardrobe.

High Heel in a Haystack’s 10 Wardrobe Essentials:

1. Dark Wash Jeans. They are versatile and can be worn all year round. Gap.com

2. Black & White Long and Short Sleeve V-Neck Tees. Can be worn alone or layered with jewelry or a sweater. V-Necks are super flattering because it makes the neck look longer.  OldNavy.com

3. Statement Jewelry. Jewelry can really elevate a look. A plain tee and jeans instantly looks stylish with a statement necklace or a stack of bracelets.  LuLus.com

4. Cardigans. This is the easiest way to layer and layering is tres tres importante when it comes to looking stylish!  Gap.com

5. Simple Black Heels. Necessity for dressing up a pair of jeans or to go with the perfect LBD. Elegant and feminine!  Nordstrom.com

6. Something jewel toned. Whether a dress, tee shirt or scarf, jewel tones are a great pop for any wardrobe and are flattering on multiple skin tones!  Piperlime.com

7. Clean White Tank for layering.  OldNavy.com

8. Ballet Flats. They are feminine and chic. Think Audrey Hepburn.  OldNavy.com

9. Well-fitted black blazer.  Nordstrom.com

10. Classic LBD. Make sure to find a little black dress that really compliments your figure. Also chose one that is simple with clean lines. The more simple the dress, the more timeless it becomes. You can always glam it up and make it more fun with the jewelry and accessories.  Piperlime.com

  1. This is a great list! In fact, it’s like you’ve been reading my mind because I’ve recently written posts on how to buy T-shirts, and LBD and a black blazer 🙂

    You just can’t go wrong with a T-shirt + jeans + blazer + ballet flats (lately I’m loving them in leopard print).
