How to Build a Wardrobe from Scratch – Top 10 Wardrobe Staples Test
The other day I was thinking… what if I could only keep 10 items within my whole closet? What would I choose to hang on to? So, I went through my clothes and decided on these 10 pieces that are my absolute favourites:
- Black Joggers
- Black Skinny Jeans
- Black Turtleneck Sweater
- Cream Colour Fitted High Neck Top
- White T-Shirt
- Grey Knit Cardigan
- Black Lace Trim Cami
- Black Cross Body Bag
- Grey Scarf
- Black Chelsea Boots
I tried to pick out 7 clothing items, and then 1 accessory, 1 bag, and 1 shoe.
Why Pick Your 10 Staples?
By picking out my own personal 10 wardrobe staples, it really made me realize what my core style is. If you’re having trouble figuring out your own personal style then I suggest trying this test out. It can give you a really great starting point to help you figure out:
- The colour palette you’re drawn to
- What you’re most comfortable in
- What fit and shape you like the most
- Patterns and details you love
- What you actually wear the most often
Once you can answer all of these questions for yourself, then you can really start building out a wardrobe full of pieces that are perfect for you. Having a wardrobe full of pieces that you love and actually wear is the goal so this test is the perfect starting point. These are the items that you wear the most, and that you’re the most comfortable in – so work from there!
