Building your staple wardrobe can be a challenge, particularly knowing where to start. So, that’s where we come in, introducing 5 womens tops you need in your staple wardrobe, that you can wear season after season and year after year. Invest in these tops and they will be an important part of your wardrobe for years to come. So, let’s get into it!
An Oversized White Shirt
First on our list we have an oversized white shirt, as it is such as diverse item that you can style in any way for any occasion. You can wear it as a shirt with anything you’d like, wear it open with a cami top underneath and jeans for a more casual look, tuck into a skirt for a night out or wear over the top of your going out dresses for a more casual look. If its long enough, you could even wear it with a belt around the waist and matching boots as a shirt dress!
The great thing about a white shirt is that it can be the base of any outfit, so you can start with it and then build around it, bringing it to life with accessories.
A Classic Blazer
Next on our list is a classic blazer, and if you’re going to invest more money in anything, it should be in this, as this definitely isn’t a fashion trend. Blazers are never going to go out of style, especially if you go for something really classic like nude or black. Dogtooth, either in nude shades or black and white, are also very popular if you want a more vibrant option to add to simple outfits.
Blazers are a must in every wardrobe, as you can wear such a simple outfit like jeans and a t-shirt and adding a blazer and heels can take it to a completely new level. Invest in a good quality blazer for your wardrobe and it will last you for years!
Off The Shoulder Jumper
Another staple you should have in your wardrobe is an off the shoulder jumper, a super feminine and cosy choice for winter, as well as cooler days throughout autumn and spring. With an off the shoulder jumper made in a slightly thinner material, it is great for layering, and it is more suited to days or evenings out where you want to get a bit more dressed up.
They look so beautiful tucked into skirts with tights and boots, or with the front tucked into trousers for work. Your options are endless with an off the shoulder jumper in your wardrobe, so if you’re looking for something warmer that will never go out of style, you’ve found your pick.
Long Sleeve Black Top
For a super simple piece that literally goes with everything, can be worn all year round and is super affordable, you’ve got to choose a long sleeve black top. You can wear it for any occasion, whether it’s work or a night out, and there are options out there whether you have £3 or £300 to spend on it.
Jeans, trousers, skirts, pinafore dresses, joggers and shorts can all be paired with a long sleeve black top, then simply dress it up or down depending on the occasion with your footwear and accessories. If you want to wear a bold skirt, then the long sleeve top helps to keep the top more simple so the outfit is more balanced. Overall, a long sleeve black top is always an excellent choice when adding staple pieces to your wardrobe.
A Corset Top
Last but not least, if you need a statement top for those nights out that gives you incredible confidence, then choose a corset top! You won’t get as much wear out of this as our other choices above, but you have to have a few pieces that are just fun and not necessarily as practical. Corset tops are so flattering, they give you so much confidence and they can bring any simple outfit to life, whether its jeans, pants or a skirt. Sometimes you might need to size up when choosing a corset top, or go into a shop and try on a few sizes to see what works for you. Overall, a corset top is a great party piece that will always help you answer the question, “what shall I wear tonight?”.
So, there you go! Staple wardrobes take time to build, but with these 5 tops, you’ll definitely be well on your way to your dream wardrobe. Don’t rush into purchases, take your time to find tops that fit you really well so you know you’ll wear them for years!
