What should I buy for a basic wardrobe?

With the money I got for Christmas I am buying a whole new wardrobe. Assuming I have nothing what would you suggest I buy.

  • A nice pair of dark jeans (blue)
    Black slacks
    Fabulous pair of heels/pumps
    Nice button up blouse in White & Black (you can always layer)
    Fitted Jacket
    I could go on so I should stop now but these are some of my choices. Have fun shopping!

  • I would say 2 pair of jeans (one dark, one lighter), a couple nice t-shirts for casual days, nice cardigan for evenings, 1 pair tennis shoes, black slacks and button up white shirt, black heels, jacket, simple black dress, and one of those cute workout suits (not a sweatsuit lol!). And as always a nice bra that is properly fitted, can't forget that!

  • the only thing I'd add to the above is a pair of khaki pants. Plain colored clothes and then fun accessories. Tan pants, white shirt w/ a turquoise necklace/earrings, give it a little "pop" I wear a lot of basics and then have a pretty scarf, necklace, belt or pair of shoes to give it a little something extra.
