The Basics Part 2: Closet Essentials

I feel that the book, Harper’s Bazaar Fabulous at Every Age, has the best list for closet essentials. As I mentioned in the previous post, there are many lists of closet essentials out there with basically the same items give or take a few things. The key is to put your own style to each of these items, but in order to build a basic wardrobe you need to have these items in your closet.
