With this analogy in mind, let’s talk about the foundation of your wardrobe aka your wardrobe basics.  These are items that you can mix and match with various pieces in your wardrobe to create awesome outfits. 

And these vary based on your lifestyle and personality. Sneakers can be a wardrobe essential for a college student but will not be an essential for a corporate woman. So, yes your lifestyle or daily routine greatly influence what we call wardrobe essentials but a major part of it is still pretty much the same for most women. Aside switching sneakers for flat shoes or denim jackets for well structured blazers, it’s pretty much almost the same.
