Wardrobe staples are the essentials that remain classic in your wardrobe for a long period of time.
Having money to shop is one thing but what’s more important is knowing what exactly to shop for especially because I know the struggle with impulsive shopping and how you have to deal with staring at an item for years without ever wearing it. Wardrobe staples differ with each person’s style, so I asked 6 fashionistas what their wardrobe staples are. According to them, these are the 10 items you need to nail those stylish looks every day.
Steady reigning as a Queen of African prints, if there’s anyone that can make Ankara look good, it’s Jennifer. With her urban style but still very rooted in African culture, Jennifer shares the wardrobe staple she thinks every lady should have;
*Blue high waisted jeans : they are extremely comfortable and also they go with pretty much everything I own.
Her effortless style gets me every time, she’s one of those people who have the body that carries anything so you’d hardly find Mide in anything unfitting. She says;
*Wardrobe staples are essential as they can be paired with anything from plain colours to print and structure. And you’ll notice that the staples can always be a look with no extra effort.
*A Power Red Dress. It’s a step up from the little black dress. It screams sexy as a lot of people are afraid to wear red and will definitely turn heads if it has the perfect fit.
Cassie’s style is very personal and relatable to those who love Vintage X Urban fusion or people who just want to look good without trying too hard, effortless style comes to mind again. Comfort and versatility is key for her.
*The denim jacket is one of my absolute favorite things and definitely a wardrobe essential for me. Draping it over my shoulder is one of my quick style hacks to elevate an outfit.
*The white shirt is a wardrobe essential, you can dress it up for work, dress down and it comes it handy as a template for layering!

Remember her as my Style Crush a while back? Stephanie’s style is sleek and chic. Always looking put together with makeup on fleek.
*A camel coat – you know how cold it is my ends so I would say a camel coat is a must have . It’s stylish and practical . Keeps me warm through out winter.
*A simple white tee. It can be dressed up or down depending on the pieces it’s put together with. I tend to have loads of t-shirts in my wardrobe as they are easy to style .
The stunner whose pictures always light a bulb in my head, causing me to loose guard in her Instagram comment section, Mary’s style is haute-chic and bold. She wears what she wants and rocks them well. She’s got three wardrobe staples:
A leather/denim jacket
They are timeless pieces and great building blocks that are always in style, no matter the season. These pieces can practically switch up your look from 0-100 each time.
So Ladies, which of these do you own? What’s your wardrobe staple?
