MORE Closet Cleansing! Keeping the Basics

Half the battle of cleaning and clearing the closet is knowing WHAT to keep.  Check out these basic checklists to see if your wardrobe is passing or failing.

A woman's closet should have:

  • a versatile little, black dress and heels
  • a crisp white t-shirt to be worn with dark denim
  • both a pair of boot cut and a pair of straight/skinny jeans
  • a sassy black pencil skirt hitting slightly above to slightly below the knee
  • black dress pants that make your ass look amazing
  • 2-5 button down dress shirts in classic colors and weaves (ex pin stripe)
  • plenty of liner tanks
  • various cardigans in neutral colors
  • a pair of adorable red shoes
  • ballet flats (neutral colors)
  • bras & intimates; underwear in both black and skin tone
  • a black, dressy wool coat for colder weather
  • a tailored, feminine trench coat

 A man's closet should have...
  • more ties than dress shirts
  • 5-10 button down collared shirts including white and classic blue
  • dress shoes in black, brown, and white for good measure
  • socks appropriate for dress shoes
  • a couple v-neck sweaters and zip/button up sweaters for layering
  • at least, one tailored suit
  • a few well-fitted classic white t-shirts 
  • a few pairs of tailored denim
  • a pair casual sneakers that would be considered a hybrid between sneaker and dress shoe (Slip-ons are often the best).
