10 Things Every Woman In Their 20s Needs In Their Wardrobe

From graduating college to starting your career and travelling, your 20s are said to be the best time of your life. Here are 10 pieces every woman in their 20s should own that will ensure they are looking stylish whatever life brings.

Black Trousers

An absolute must-have for any working professional. A good pair of flattering black trousers can be dressed up for work or formal occasions or dressed down with a t-shirt and some runners.

Denim Jacket

A classic piece that is so versatile, a light-wash denim jacket can be worn with pretty much anything and looks great with a casual day dress.

Make sure you invest in a quality one that will last you years as this way you won't waste your money having to replace it every six months.


A plain black blazer is a must-have for every woman.

Channel your inner girl boss by pairing it with some trousers and heels or go smart casual by wearing some denim jeans and heeled boots.

Little Black Dress

You can never go wrong with a little black dress and every woman needs to have at least one go-to black dress in their wardrobe.

A Pair of Black & Nude Heels

Nude heels create a gorgeous streamlined look and elongate your legs while black heels will match perfectly with your LBD, black trousers or jeans.

If you have a pair of each in your wardrobe you will never have a shoe dilemma again.

Quality Denim Jeans


A collection of quality denim jeans will see you through many occasions. Jeans can be dressed up or down and if you find the right style and brand for you will also be super comfortable.

I think everyone should have a pair of light-wash and a pair of black jeans, the style is up to you. I'm personally a fan of skinny jeans and straight leg jeans as both can easily be dressed up or down.

White Runners

When you're running around here, there and everywhere you need something comfortable yet stylish on your feet so some simple white runners are the perfect solution.

They can be worn with literally anything and are great for turning smart outfits into smart-casual.

Comfy Lounge Wear

When you come home after a busy day comfy clothes are essential to help you relax and unwind. Invest in a few loungewear sets or pick up some basic joggers, leggings, hoodies and baggy t-shirts so you can mix and match.

I would always recommend going with black for your joggers and leggings as this ensures that any top you pair with them will look great.

Just because you're at home relaxing doesn't mean you still can't look cute.

Heeled Boots

Heeled black boots are the best friends of the "jeans and a nice top" combination, they dress it up just the right amount.

They're another versatile piece that can make casual outfits look smarter or vice versa.

A small collection of Graphic T-Shirts

Graphic t-shirts are a great way to express your personality and they don't just have to be for casual days.

They can be paired with some smart trousers and heels for a modern office look or with a midi skirt and trainers for a cute weekend outfit.

There are so many out there to choose from so have fun with it and pick out t-shirts that best represent your style and personality.
