Fashionista in Transit? Here’s how to build a chic wardrobe

wardrobe essentials

Wardrobe essentials for fashionistas are always cohesive, (way more than you think)! And that’s what makes them timeless.

Wardrobe Essentials for a fashion-loving person you’d be surprised may not fill up a huge wardrobe, it would only feature timeless pieces or styles that work paired with different looks aka they (fashionistas) shop multipurpose/versatile pieces that are never boring.

Versatile pants/skirt (even when it’s black, would be everything but basic)

They rock with the best fitting pants or bottoms. Think fit like a glove, flattering and minimalist but not in any way boring. A true fashionista will not play it safe so it may not be black (even if it is by any remote chance black, there won’t be anything boring about it).

Ecstacy Models
White shirt

Of course, a white shirt because they are what stylish get-ups are made of and chiefly because they can be styled in so many ways.


Of course jeans are for the business casual/laid back looks. It’s best to get good quality ones that will last a while so you get a good wear out of it.

A versatile dress

Of course a timeless dress, this is usually where the ‘LBD’ comes to play. Choose one best suited for your style and personality. 

Wrap Dress 

(The one that covers a multitude of ‘sins’). Wrap dresses are fab especially in silk! And let’s not get started about how they effortlessly cover up glam. A wrap dress for instance will cover a plethora of things you want under wraps! They are flattering and so versatile when it comes to styling them and you can almost never go wrong wearing them in any length.

This works perfectly as they can be styled together as co-ords that they are meant to be in or separately! Co-ords are versatile e.g you get different wears (at least 2) out of a look.


A pair of shorts to show off your toned pins and one that works effortlessly paired with a lot of your favourite tops.

For the confident fashionista who knows comfort can also mean effortless, this is a must-have.

Block heels

Before now we wouldn’t dare pick blocked heels but in recent times, they have become a go-to. Especially in fierce designs. They also scream confident and bold. And they are super comfy too.
Tailored blazer

Your business casual look is not complete without a perfectly fitting tailored jacket. This is a timeless style and quality fabric and fit will kick your style all the up when you throw it on. It’s perfect because it works dressed all up or down!

Wardrobe essentials

Of course, the list can go on but make sure to pick out timeless pieces that work best with your style/personality.
