A Healthy, Balanced Wardrobe

Is your closet not feeling so great? Too many trendy pieces, not enough basics? Get on the road to wardrobe health with this helpful wardrobe pyramid:

The Wardrobe Pyramid

The Wardrobe Pyramid, brought to you by the folks at SeamBLiSS

*Note: Have shoes and jewelry in your wardrobe that can fit into each of these clothing categories. For example, have a formal pair of earrings, as well as basic studs you can wear everyday.

Everday Basics: These are your wardrobe “carbs” – you need them to have a functioning outfit! Includes basic camis, tanks,  comfy tees, simple cardigans, black leggings and layering items.

Casual Items: The stuff you wear every day to go about your biz. Includes jeans, cute blouses, sweaters, etc. These items aren’t particularly trendy – you could wear them from season to season. They are stylish, but highly wearable.

Work/Professional Clothing: If you work in a professional environment, you need enough of these items to get through the week! Includes pencil skirts, work-appropriate blouses, button-up shirts, and blazers.

Accessories: Not talkin’ jewelry here, as jewelry could have its own pyramid. This category includes belts, scarves, hats, gloves, etc. These add both function and style to your outfit.

Trendy Items: This includes most of your H&M, Zara, and Forever21 fast-fashion finds. Cheap and disposable, but also fun and useful for trying out trends without spending a lot of money.

High-Quality Basics: These are the classics that will last forever and never go out of style. Includes: little black dresses, timeless blazers, high-quality handbags, etc. These items cost a lot, but make up for it in durability.

Outerwear: You shouldn’t own a lot of outerwear, but what you have should be durable and functional. Includes trench coats, raincoats, puffers, ski jackets, etc.

Formal Wear: These are your own “red carpet” pieces! They should be classic, elegant, and stunning!
