Wardrobe essentials are just that... essential! These are pieces that every woman should have in their closet, and can be worn on every occasion. Image consultant Christie Ressel shows us how to get six wardrobe essentials for under $100!
1. The Classic White Shirt
This is a must have! A white shirt is the building block for almost any look. You can dress it up with a skirt or wear it casually with denim. Don’t bother spending a ton on this piece, as they're always available and can be easily replaced.
Outfit total: $90.55
2. The Pea Coat
The pea coat is a timeless classic that will never go out of style. Typically seen in navy or camel, we love the pop of colour in this cranberry colour. Double-breasted, this jacket sits perfectly at the hips and works on all body types.
Outfit total: $97.75
3. The Little Cocktail Dress
We all love the little black dress, but we sometimes need a pop of colour! Have some fun with pattern and colours and pick up an alternate to the LBD.
Outfit total: $97
4. The (Faux) Leather Jacket
This is an easy way to get the leather look without spending a fortune. A leather jacket always makes any outfit look chic.
Outfit total: $89.30
5. Dark Wash Denim
Dark wash denim is a wardrobe essential for all ages and body types. These pants are so transitional and can be worn to the office, on the weekend, or on date night. Wash them in cold water inside out and hang to dry to help keep their colour dark.

6. The Black Suit
This is the ultimate versatile must have in your wardrobe. It can be worn together or as separates. Either way both pieces are essential to have in your closet. When shopping for the black suit, look for fabric that doesn’t wrinkle easily. This suit can take you from the office, to dinner to a night out for cocktails. All in one day!!
