We all hear stories about women having too much stuff in their closets. I attest to this personally, as I have two sisters who bought clothes and shoes as if the stores were always on sale.
Remember that scene in the movie, "Confessions of a Shopaholic" where the lead character, Rebecca, was shoving all her clothes into an already overflowing closet? While that sure was funny, I imagine there are lots of women (and sometimes men) out there who face the same dilemma.
Before you get any ideas, no, this is not an article extolling the values of minimalism. It is also not a rant about buying too much stuff either. Rather, our little list here aims to narrow down on the top five pieces of clothing that we believe every girl should have. After all, it all starts with the basics. But who knows? Maybe after reading this, you’ll realize that you have enough stuff in your closet and you would want to focus on building upon your top favorite pieces of clothing instead. You not only save money from not buying stuff that you don't need but you will also avoid the trap that our good friend Rebecca suffered from in the movie.
So what stuff should every woman have in her closet? Let’s check out the list now!
A blazer in your favorite shade instantly gives you a nice, layered look that's perfect for the office and more formal events. Even if you are only wearing a simple personalized shirt or blouse, putting on a blazer takes things up a notch.

Or more popularly known among women as LBD. Karl Lagerfeld once said, "One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a little black dress." It is versatile and serves as your go-to outfit for dinner events and formal parties.
