This is one of the all-time classic luxury items every woman should have. The little black dress has been a staple of women’s wardrobes since the time of Coco Chanel. This dress is so classy and simple as well. You can’t go wrong wearing it as far as fashion is concerned. And the best part? You can accessorize with anything and you’ll look amazing.
This is for corporate babes. Don’t want to look classy as you go to work? Try wearing blazers over your shirt. You can also use it for casual wear. Just wear on a pair of jeans and girl, you’re good to go.
Jumpsuits are very trendy and comfortable. They never run out of styles and colours. You can easily pair them with high-heel shoes or even flat heels. Jumpsuits don’t select accessories as well or you can choose not to wear any. It’s fine.
5. Chiffon blouse
Chiffon materials are really trending among the ladies. Why not join the trend and get yourself a nice chiffon blouse? You can wear it on a pair of jeans, pencils or flay skirts. Your choice and they’ll definitely look great on you.
Oh yeah, a handbag is an essential luxury item every woman should have. Think about it? How does it look if you dress well and you don’t have a handbag? Not good, right? Exactly. Get yourself a designer handbag. There are different brands to choose from – Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada, Dior, Chanel etc. You can also patronize Nigerian handbag designers.

7. High heel shoes
Stilettoes are the most trendy luxury shoes. But if you’re like me, then you’ll rather go for block heels. There’s a better chance of not falling over your face and embarrassing yourself in the name of fashion. If you’re daring enough, go for stilettoes. They’re classy.
8. Clutch bag
You’re a woman and you don’t have a clutch bag? How else are you going to complete your stylishness in owambes? There are different colours and designs of clutch bags to choose from. A great tip is to choose one that matches the dress or accessories you’re wearing.
These are luxury items that have found their way into every fashionable woman’s heart. Sneakers are very comfortable as opposed to high heels. They are basically worn on casual wear like simple short gowns, T-shirts with a pair of jeans or shorts, ankara playsuit etc.
It’s not all the time we feel like fixing our hair. So here come wigs to the rescue. Human hair is the rave now. Long, short, medium, wavy, curly or bone straight. They are luxury items every woman should have.

This is for women who love to swim. It will be great to add designer swimwear to your luxury collections. You can choose a one-piece or two-piece swimsuit of any colour as long as they fit your body shape and size.
13. Ankara and lace
What? You think we’re going to end this segment without mentioning ankara and lace? How else are you going to blend in owambe and other events? The style that cannot be created with an ankara fabric does not exist. It’s so versatile that you can make short gowns, long gowns, jumpsuit, skirt and blouse, trousers, suit jackets etc. Lace are more restricted but not any less trendy. Basically, all the ashebi Nigerian ladies wear for events are made from lace materials. You can even combine both lace and ankara like the beautiful picture above.
Wardrobe must-haves for every woman
These are basic or essential items every woman should have in her wardrobe. They are wears you cannot avoid having in your collection. Let’s look at the top 10 wardrobe must-haves for every woman.
My sister, you cannot be without bra and panties. Not only are they fashionable, but they are also essential for your wellbeing. Choose cotton materials for your panties. They are breathable, absorbent and help prevent yeast infection. Also, a good bra helps prevent your breasts from sagging. Even if your breasts have fallen like the walls of Jericho, no problem. Just buy a nice push-up bra and package yourself well. Na saggy breast you get, you no kill person.
T-shirts are crazily comfortable wears you must have in your wardrobe. Trust me, there is nothing better than wearing a comfy t-shirt on a lazy afternoon. Plain white T-shirts are particularly great for corporate and casual wear.

You don’t have a wardrobe if you don’t have these. They are very basic wears you must have. Not only are they simple and classy, but they are also very affordable. Choose the ones that fit your budget.
Slippers and sandals
You can’t spend every day on bare feet, can you? You need slippers and sandals to complete your everyday wear. They are especially useful on days when you can’t put on shoes for whatever reasons.
Simple flat shoes
Flat shoes are great alternatives to high-heeled shoes. They are very essential for your wardrobe because you can wear them for any occasion.
If you’re living in a cold environment, it’s best you have a sweater. You don’t want to fall ill from the cold.
A pair of jeans
If you don’t like jeans trousers, you can go for jean skirts. They are very simple and classy. The best part? You can wear them on any top and footwear of your choice. That’s why you must have them in your wardrobe.
Even if you don’t like handbags, you must have a purse in your wardrobe. Purses are second skins for women. A man can shove his wallets, phones and keys into his pockets and he’s good to go. But a woman needs a purse to accommodate all essential items before going out.
Night wears also known as nighties are a must-have for women. There are different types ranging from sexy nighties to plain old pyjama shirts and trousers. You can even convert your singlet and shorts into a nightie, provided they are comfortable. Also, your boyfriend’s/husband’s shirt and boxer shorts can be your nightie. After all, men get turned on by women wearing their shirts and boxers.
