I Have Nothing To Wear: The Only Clothes You Really Need In Your Closet.

It's 2013  and women still face the same problem  that Eve faced years ago, " They have nothing to wear." Sometimes having too much clothes in your closet can make it difficult for you to find something to wear. Having too many choices is not always a good thing. Below is a list of  clothes that you really need in your closet. 

Two pairs of dark pants ( I really have 2 that fit )  
  • Simple, skimming cut, wool, or cotton sateen for day
  • Wool and jersey mix, fuller legs for day and evening.
Two pairs of jeans ( I really have 5 ) 
  • One hemmed to wear with heels, pumps, wedges, platform, or boots
  • One Hemmed to wear with flats, or sneakers.
Three skirts ( I hate skirts )
  • 1 wool, lightweight pencil or A-line Skirt in black
  • An A-line, bias cut, or circle in a drape fabric
  • A neutral color in a fabric that can mix with other pieces, such as tweed, chalk-wool, or boucle

Shirts ( I really have 0 white shirt)
  • One white button-front shirt 
  • T-shirts
Two Jackets ( I really have 2)
  • One tailored jacket that matches your one pair of dark pants
  • A sporty-shaped, bomber, motorcycle, or windbreaker style jacket
Three Coats (I really have 3)
  • Light neutral or black trench coat
  • A winter coat ( the best fabric you can afford)
  • A day/night, between-seasons, knee-length coat (suede, wool, or leather fabric)
Three sweaters ( I really have 4 )
  • One black, front buttons cardigan  (cashmere if you can afford it)
  • One turtleneck in a neutral color with tweeds ( if you have long neck)
  • One V neck in a rich color  ( olive,  salmon, camel, or smoky lilac) 

8 Dresses or Matching Separates I really have 8 )
  • One little black dress (LBD) 
  • Two sundresses
  • One wrap around dress in a dark color
  • One empire dress if you have a pear shape
  • And (of course) 3 evening dresses ( as needed, on occasion)
Bags ( I really have 5 )
  • One leather bag that works with everything and every color for work or church
  • One tote/weekend bag
  • One envelope-shape, or square-top evening bag
Shoes (  you really need 5, but I really have hundreds )
  • A pair of black pumps with 2 -1/2 to 4 inches heels in the current style, or a kitten heel.
  • A reliable pair of evening shoes ( closed toe, black satin)
  • A pair of tall black boots
  • A pair of bad weather boots
