Ten Wardrobe Essentials

It's that time of year when we're all thinking about Spring cleaning and getting ready for the change of seasons. Here at Inherit, we are all about keeping things simple, + filling your closets full of clothes that make life easier, bring joy to your journey, while remaining timeless + classic! We love fun + trendy styles just as much as the next girl, but we really pour our heart into our Inherit original designs that remain the staples that we go back to every time we form an outfit. We love to mix and match our originals and pair them with seasonal, trendy items and they never fail to look fresh. They truly stand the test of time! Whether you are looking to start a capsule wardrobe, or just take the work out of getting ready in the morning... here are our 10 modest wardrobe essentials just for you. From modest dresses, to skirts, to jacket, we've got you covered! 

1. A Long Denim Skirt

The Stella Dark Denim is one of our best-sellers and our personal favorite as that go-to style for everyday looks. It is simple, straight, and flattering. This skirt comes in light denim, as well as six colored denim options, but we think you can never go wrong with a classic dark denim. A perfect dark blue denim is accented by white top stitching and the pockets include a simple and elegant design. Just the right touch of distress has been added to the front of the skirt: not too distracting, but enough to add a little class. The straight and simple style is graced with a back slit below the knees for easy walking. This skirt comes in three lengths to accommodate most all heights!  It is an essential for sure!

2. A Dressy Black Skirt

The Wanda Midi Skirt would be our top pick for your any day of the week classic black skirt--whether you are headed to church, date night, or the office. This modest pencil skirt is the epitome of timeless + classic. We love that it is fully lined with no slit, keeping modesty in the forefront. The blend of material gives this pencil skirt sophisticated style!

3. A Classy Blouse

A blouse is a piece in your closet that will never go out of style. They are perfect for layering or tucked in for a more put-together look. We love this Double Ruffle Woven Top for the gorgeous detail--the double ruffle on the front and dainty ruffles on the sleeves seem perfect and the feminine. These are the kind of details that will bring happiness and joy to your outfits. It doesn't hurt that it's pink, either!

4. A Plain White Tee

You should have one of these for every day of the week. A plain white tee is the perfect layering top. This Cotton V-Neck Tee has a modest v-neck that provides enough coverage but still a subtle neck line for some style. Always keeping you confident + comfortable.

5. A Timeless Denim Jean Jacket

Totally a classic! A Classic Denim Jean Jacket is all of the things - comfortable, practical and modest. You'll want one for every season, guaranteed! Enough said. Throw it over a dress for church or with your favorite tee and comfy skirt when you need to quickly get out the door. You will never go wrong with this one.

6. A Modest Maxi Dress

We obviously love the Abigail from our Inherit name-sake label, but for so many reasons! It drapes beautifully and feels casual yet looks refined. The half-sleeve length is flattering and offers a fun difference from most dresses giving you the option to layer...or not! We picked gray as one of our wardrobe essentials so we can transition from season to season. Oh, and hidden pockets?! Yes, please!

7. A Detailed Long Sleeve Tee

Of course we picked the Amy Lace Top! This top is our go-to all season long. It requires no layering with its modest neckline and double lined fabric! You can wear it alone or pair it with a cardigan for a pretty bit of lace peeking out. This top has a no-bulk fit that makes it great for tucking in or leaving out. It's the missing piece you've been looking for to complete so many of your favorite outfits! We love the ivory for a fresh + clean look, but this modest women's top comes in FIVE more classic colors!

8. Basic Striped Modest Tee

A basic striped tee is timeless, especially in black + white. We love the boat neck design of this muted striped tee and made it with modesty in mind! The half sleeves are so exciting and give you more coverage than the average tee! The ultra soft + stretchy material will bring you so much comfort without compromising a flattering look..tuck it in or leave it out, this women's classic style is going to stick around!

9. A Cozy Cardigan

You can never have too many cardigans, in our opinion. If you don't have one like this that you can throw on over any outfit, you really need to invest in one...or three! We love this women's Long Open Front Cardigan paired with a modest denim skirt and a tee for any day, but the best part is that a cardigan like this can easily be worn over a dress to church or out for the evening and still look classy. Nothing transcends trends or seasons like a cardi. Soft and Cozy Cardigan

10. A Comfy Cotton Skirt 

The Jordan Midi Skirt is totally ready for a casual day of running errands and being confidently you! This midi skirt is from our Inherit name-sake label and features an elastic waist with a comfy drawstring tie. It has two functional pockets and a fitted stretch for the win! How could you go wrong?
