The Wardrobe Essentials
By Uzoamaka Ukegbu
Too many clothes, nothing to wear?

The simplest explanation for every woman’s problem when she says she has nothing to wear after staring into a closet full of clothes is that she does not have wardrobe essentials/staples.

Question: What are Wardrobe Essentials?


The answer to this question is both Answer and Rule:

You know that item that you see while shopping and you just know in your heart that you cannot wear it over 30 times? Yes, that one! It is not an essential! If you‘re shopping for the basics, those pieces that really come through for us when all else fails, DO NOT buy it!

I have compiled a list of MUST HAVES to share with you as far as wardrobe essentials are concerned. Your wardrobe essentials have little or nothing to do with your body type, your age, or your style. Every Nigerian woman must have these 12 BASICS in her wardrobe. They are the most diverse pieces, suitable to most, which can be replicated more than 30 times.

Please note that in buying all these items, it is very important to invest in quality over quantity.
