Essential clothes for a woman's wardrobe

If we want to convey who we are to others, our attire is a great tool to use in business. Of course, it's best to avoid short pants, sloppy tops, and shapeless clothing. You should also avoid wearing outfits that are too worn or too loose, or too close to the body. Generally speaking, if we dress and act as a socially responsible person, wishing to enhance the image of our company, we will be perceived as such. For this, your wardrobe is a valuable tool. Whether you want to make a good impression in a professional setting or on a less formal outing, certain clothes are essential. Mademoiselle Grenade takes stock of these timeless basics and other items of clothing that you should urgently have in your feminine wardrobe. 

What are the classics and “must-haves” of a good wardrobe?

Jackets and blazers

Whether for work or for pleasure, a jacket like a blazer gives a finishing touch to an outfit and sends a message. It is our responsibility to ensure that this message is positive. At work, a black or gray blazer gives a serious, sophisticated and classy image. Black is the most versatile shade for a jacket, whether worn for business or as a statement of personal style.

The navy blazer is also a safe choice for work. Paired with a shade of light brown or beige, you will be perceived as a trustworthy, educated and healthy person.

Navy blue suit jacket for women

Beige is an ideal choice for someone considered too assertive. Indeed, this timeless shade creates an image of calm and elegance. Brown shades, especially brown, offer a friendly, friendly and approachable image. These shades also have the particularity of softening the colors with which they are associated. Smaller women will benefit from shades of red. Red helps, in fact, to attract attention and therefore to be noticed. For family or friendly events...the essentials include the boyfriend jacket, a denim jacket and/or a leather jacket. Denim dresses up dresses for a chic, casual look, while leather creates a more sophisticated look. Pair a boyfriend jacket with jeans or black leather pants for a casual-chic look that will look like it came straight out of a fashion magazine! Choose the length of your jacket to enhance your silhouette. Quality matters! Don't forget Miss Grenade's previous advice .

Skirts (pencil, trapeze...)

Choose your skirt carefully. At work, short, ruffled, or sexy skirts will probably get you noticed in a really bad way. Wear traditional, darker colors in well-fitting fabrics. A pencil or trapeze skirt, in dark tones, will be particularly flattering.
