Essential wardrobe checklist for the modern 20-something woman
Great wardrobe checklist for a woman in her 20s.
A woman in her twenties goes through so much – finishing college, a new job, meeting the man of her dreams and so much more. Her clothing should be young, but at the same time business oriented, sexy but demure, casual yet sophisticated and it should go with her lifestyle. With this in mind, there are so many wardrobe essentials a woman in her twenties should have. Here are the absolute must-haves for this woman in the time of her life…
A Business Suit: If you can only get one, you must get a beautifully lined black business suit. It’s something that can take you from the office to cocktails. Just change your top and shoes depending on the occasion. From your business casual top, switch for a sexy laced camisole and change your Mary Jane’s for some stilettos when taking the look to evening. This black business suit can take you so many places, so invest in a good one.
A Great Shoe: Invest in a great pair of shoes that are functional for work and play. Take a good look at your lifestyle. Are you sitting at an office desk for most of the day? Then you can handle a higher heel. Whatever, you do, look for good quality and amazing craftsmanship and don’t be afraid to splurge on that designer shoe you’ve been eyeing. Why? Because your feet don’t fluctuate in weight and they will last you a long time if you take proper care of them.
Sexy Tops: Yes, you’ve still got the body. So, don’t be afraid to show a little skin. Just remember that while being sexy, be demure. Choose styles and shapes that accentuate your body type. Find tops with detail, whether it’s lace, the neckline or pattern. In your twenties you can completely get away with funky patterns and prints – think Pucci. Also, don’t be afraid of color. At your age anything looks good on you.
Jeans: Who doesn’t look great in jeans? Having a nice array of jeans on hand is great for any gal. Choose a style and fit that looks good on your body. Try many different designer brands to see what personality fits you. The great thing about jeans is that you can make them casual or dressy depending on your top, shoes and accessories.
Your Dream Handbag: Splurge on that Christian Dior, Fendi, Chanel or Gucci if you’d like. You truly deserve it. Go for classic shapes, styles and colors with these bags. With proper care, you’ll have it and use if for many, many years.
Going Out Clothes: While still enjoying your twenties, it’s always nice to have several going out outfits, whether you enjoy cocktails at lounges or clubs. Go trendy with these outfits – skirts, tops and items you can mix and match.
The most important thing to remember when creating your wardrobe checklist, while living it up in your twenties is that, you still have room to grow with your unique style. Be true to your own fashion sense. Take inspiration from other people who inspire you – celebrities or not, but let yourself define your image.
