5 Essential Tops for Every Woman’s Wardrobe

There are certain items that every gal needs in her wardrobe and today we’re tackling tops. As I coach my clients, there are five shirts that I consider “essentials” that will easily transition between seasons and will be a staple for any outfit.

These 5 shirts include: (1) Striped Tee (2) White Oxford (3) Denim Shirt (4) Patterned Shirt and (5) Layering Top. With these important tops, you’ll be able to put countless outfits together.

Speaking of essentials, in case you missed it, read about the five must have shoes for every season here.


The striped tee never goes out of style. It pairs perfectly with other patterns as well as with denim, leather, khaki and the list goes on and on. Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 10.29.33 AM


Paired with black trousers at work or thrown over jeans while running errands on the weekend, the white oxford is easily dressed up or down.

Don’t be afraid to partner denim with a bright colored pair of jeans, a fancy skirt, or even with denim jeans. Denim on denim is a popular trend right now! Think of this chambray shirt as a neutral.

Paired with blue jeans and a fun flat or wedge, a patterned shirt {A.K.A. stand alone top} can dress up any outfit and add a punch of something fun to your look. Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 10.31.24 AM


Layered under a leather jacket/ blazer or just thrown on for a day out with kids with a scarf, the lightweight layering tee is versatile in so many ways.
