The fast-paced modern world can be quite exhausting when it comes to making fashion choices.


But it actually doesn’t take breaking the bank to look good. Only five essential clothing items are needed.

They are;

Denim jeans, particularly skinny jeans


Jeans have come a long way from being just work clothes invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873.

In modern times, jeans are produced in various shades and colours, and they allow individuals to choose based on their preference.

However, when on a budget, it is advisable to go for blue or black jeans as these can be repeated without drawing attention. The good
thing about these pants is that their super-hard fabric makes them last a long time. More especially when properly taken care of.


LBD: Little black dress

You never know what occasion might come up but trust that with an LBD, your worries for an outfit is almost solved.

Whether it’s a funeral service, wedding ceremony, cocktail party, a date with your loved one or a family dinner, a little black dress will always come to the rescue.

Like blue and black jeans, LBDs do not draw attention when worn multiple times.


If you’re too lazy to go thrift or boutique-shopping, you can check through the dress sections of Jumia, Konga, and popular
Instagram thrift or dress shops.

Miracle-working interview/corporate outfit

Yes. You need that hire-me-or-lose-an-awesome-person dress to ace interviews, presentations, meetings and any business related to the
corporate world.

In choosing this outfit, it is important to go for decent yet stylish dress(es). Investing in a blazer and skirt is a winner but if gowns are your thing, up your game in that department too.


Comfortable heels

It’s not a myth that heels have the magical powers of converting a plain dress into a classy and stylish one.

Getting a pair of heels is also tricky. There‘s no need to kill your feet getting ridiculously high heels. Opt for heels that reflect your personality and you’re comfortable in.

Black, silver, and nude are example of shades to go for if you mean to own a pair of heels.


The date dress

While LBDs can serve as date dresses too, there’s more than enough reason to invest in a proper date dress.

You’re in your 20s and this means many dates will be expected. Investing in a date dress is, therefore, a smart decision.
