Essential Wardrobe Pieces Every Closet Should Contain

At Cabinet Systems, we’re dedicated to crafting a space that custom fits your home, your style, and your life. From time to time, you may feel the need to re-organize, upgrade or downsize its contents. But some items are recommended by fashion experts to keep around as essentials. So, we have assembled a list of timeless pieces that belong in every closet and can solidify any outfit. Because these items can be mixed-and-matched time and time again, you can achieve multiple different looks without breaking the bank.

 1. A black blazer
Most fashion experts would agree, a black blazer can go with just about any business attire. Great for the office or going out, everyone needs at least one blazer that is comfortable and fits your figure.

2. Solid-colored flats

Every woman needs a pair of shoes in a solid, bold color. Red, for example, works with nearly every skin tone and every season. This adds a pop of color to any ensemble and can be worn year-round.

3. A striped shirt

A striped shirt is a staple that most respected public figures have donned at least once in the 20th century. It looks great with jeans for casual wear or even peeking out from a blazer.

“Little black dress” – it sounds cliche, but it really is an amazing piece.  “Every woman knows she should have a little black dress, but it’s important to invest in one that’s special. Look for a dress with a detail-an interesting sleeve, an embellished belt – that makes it unique. And remember that finding the right fit is important!”


It can seem pricey, but this is an item you can definitely wear forever even if you lose or gain weight. It completes every outfit, is great for rainy days, and is lightweight – all while keeping you warm.

Jeans that fit just right

Everybody has or wants that one pair, right? Those jeans that fit perfectly – your waist, your leg length, your rear and thighs. Dark flared jeans look amazing with just about everything, and can even be worn to the office on casual Fridays.

All of these items can be the fundamental building blocks to your style. From here, you can go off of how to build your individual look while still keeping it trendy and classy.
