11 things every Kenyan woman needs in her closet

These wardrobe basics are a must have

Albeit, regardless of your fashion choices, every woman in her 20s needs a few items to complete her wardrobe. You definitely want to walk into a room and command respect and attention; the good kind of attention of course.

There are timeless pieces that you need to have in your closet. These are the items that you can grab for different occasions and ones that will never go out of style regardless of the season.

So, let’s get to it:


1. A great hand bag.

I don’t mean those sirudi nyumbani bags that can fit a whole car. What I mean is, if you suddenly have an important meeting or daytime date or interview, do you have a nice stylish bag that can at least fit essentials like a note book or iPad and make you look presentable? Get yourself a stylish medium sized bag in neutral colors and one that can be paired with pretty much anything.

2. The perfect pair of blue skinny jeans.

One that fits perfectly, isn’t distressed and one that can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on the occasion.

3. An LBD.


That little sexy black dress that you can fish out when you need to party, attend a birthday, attend an upscale event or even a cocktail party. Pair it with a trendy stiletto or a strappy heel and you’re good to go.

4. A chambray shirt.

Because? It’s the one shirt that will look great paired with shorts, a casual denim skirt or pencil skirt, jeans, leggings, name it. It’s like the canvas of the clothing world in my opinion.

5. A gown.

When you need to attend a gala event or red-carpet event or even an occasion where you need to turn heads, you will need to wear a gown. It’s important to have one in black or white that you can grab for such occasions.


6. All purpose boots.

Comfortable booties that can pull a double duty from day to night.

7. A statement piece of jewelry.

Be it diamond earrings or a chunky necklace or body chain, every woman needs a statement jewelry that can spruce up an outfit if need be.


8. Slip on sneakers.

For the airport, running errands, social events etc. Think, shoes you need to wear when you’re going for a comfortable yet stylish look.

Because? We need to pay homage to our roots...and, we are claiming that Ruracio to come ASAP.

10. Sexy lingerie.


If you’re gonna get down and dirty with your crush, you cannot go wearing a mother’s union right? You need some sexy matching lingerie for those occasions. *wink*

11. A classic cashmere trench.

A modern and trendy trench will come in handy for the cold season cause rainy weather is not an excuse to look frumpy.
