Must Have Wardrobe Staples For Men And Women

Something we often see missing from our clients’ wardrobe are classic pieces, such as a great pair of boots, a coat that finishes off every outfit and a staple belt. We find that people tend to overlook these types of items because they seem simple, but they do really complete an entire look. For both men and women it’s great to invest in timeless wardrobe staples that can be used throughout the year, whether that is a great neutral coat, or a pair of black boots that could work with almost any outfit.

We’ve put together a list of our must have wardrobe staples for men and women and we’ve also got a little competition too if you keep reading!

Classic Trench

For men and women it is great to invest in a good neutral trench coat. Not only are trenches practical during the winter and spring months, they can make any outfit look complete. We love these navy coats from GANT because even though they’re neutral, they bring a little bit of colour to the look, keeping it from being completely black. The trench is also making a big comeback this upcoming season!

Dark Jeans

A great pair of dark jeans is necessary in any wardrobe. They pair well with nearly anything and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Have you got one good pair of jeans that makes you think ‘I look great in these’? If not, it’s time to invest in a good pair that fits your body-shape and work with everything. As a rule, the darker the denim, the smarter they’ll look and also the more slimming they are. These waxed jeans are great as the shine also helps elongate the legs and the fabric doesn’t end up looking washed-out after a few washes.

Wardrobe Staples

We’ve selected a few pieces from GANT to build an outfit of wardrobe essentials for women and men. If you feel like your wardrobe may be missing any of these important pieces, you can our new competition to win a gift certificate from GANT where you can find all of these great staples!

Black Boots

It is essential to have a great pair of neutral coloured boots in your wardrobe because they can bring an otherwise very casual outfit up a notch. They are great for the winter and spring months, and if yours are looking a bit tired, now would be the perfect time to invest in a great new pair.

“Have a look at your boots today and be honest with yourself. Does the heel look like it’s walked too many miles. Is the front looking scuffed? We often find that people find a pair of boots they love and wear them to death. Like everything, boots have a shelf life and if they’re on their last legs, it’s time to invest in a new pair. A slip-on style is timeless for both men and women and also practical. For women a small block heel helps elongate the leg.”

A Good Watch

A good watch that elevates your outfit and works with everything from casual to smart is essential in every wardrobe. We’ve selected an all-gold timepiece for women as it can be worn with day and evening outfits and is classic with a stylish edge. A blue watch is a great option for men as this is such a dominant colour in most men’s outfits making it the perfect versatile timepiece.

    Great article, I love that you’ve included staples for men and women rather than separating them! I definitely agree that dark jeans are an absolute must-own – I like to have a pair in light blue, dark blue and black in a few different styles (as does my boyfriend). A definite accessory staple for both of us is a high-quality belt, I think having a handmade leather is a great wardrobe staple, and perfect to wear with dark jeans.
