Stacy and Clint's Wardrobe Staple List
Everyone should have some staples in their wardrobe. Stacy and Clint from "What Not To Wear" have a wardrobe staple list, and I figured I would share it with you, along with what's in my wardrobe, and what I need. Not surprisingly to me, I have a lot of these items (plus some). I challenge you to give yourself this test and see what you have and what you need. You'd be surprised what's in your closet!
A black pantsuit- For me, this is a partial check. I have a black pinstripe pants and dress suit (3 pieces).
A softer neutral suit with pants or skirt (gray, brown, khaki, or navy)- Check.
3 pairs of neutral trousers- Check
3 winter-weight skirts (1 should be tweed)- Check
3 summer-weight skirts (1 should be tweed)- Check- minus the tweed.
3 cotton button-front shirts- Check
3 blouses- Check
2 sparkly tops- Check.
Leather jacket- Check. I have a longer jacket and a shorter, more fun jacket.
Denim jacket- Check.
Trench coat- Need! This has been on my list for a LONG time.
3 pairs of jeans (all hemmed to different lengths for flats, heels, and sandals)- Check. Although...my pre pregnancy jean count is probably somewhere upwards of 9-10....)
Black dress- Check. Cocktail length, a little longer length, and a simple black dress
Solid-color dress- Check.
