I guess I am a bit of a clothes horse. Jeez. I'm embarrassed to write down what I think would be a basic wardrobe, compared to what you wrote, but I will anyway.
1. 2 pairs of pants
One pair in black, one pair in khaki. These are dress pants, btw.
2. 1 pair of shorts
I hate shorts. I doubt I'll wear them even when I lose enough weight to look ok in them. Every couple of years, the longer ones come back & those are the length I would wear, I guess. Although I have bike shorts to work out in (NOT spandex)
3. 1 swimsuit
I have 2--1 to wash, 1 to wear. The $60 one I got from the Lane Bryant catalog disintegrated after 5 swimming classes. The $15 number I got from WalMart is still in one strong piece.
4. 2 white blouses
I only have one, I wear it over sundresses in the summer.
5. 2 or 3 tshirts
I have 5 million Tshirts. I have a nice white one that I wear a lot. (And just had to replace b/c I spilled makeup on it & it WOULD NOT WASH OUT FOR ANYTHING) I also have all different colors that I wear for working out/knocking around.
6. 1 black skirt
What kind of black shirt? I have a boat necked shirt from Land's End that I got for $3 @ their outlet that I loooooove. But I have a lot of black tops, b/c I look great in black.
Oh wait. You said skirt. Oops. Then this would have to be ammended to one short black skirt (skimming the knees) and one long black skirt (mid calf).
7. 1 goes with everything cardigan sweater
I have a black one that I've had since HS. I should retire that thing. It's 13 years old now!
8. 1 dress for special occasions
I think the dress depends on the occasion. I have a wedding to attend in a month, also a baby shower coming up, so I will choose an outfit that is suitable for both occasions.
9. 1 winter jacket (for those of us who live in winterwonderlands)
10. 1 light jacket
Mine is a size 24. I'm hoping it won't fit when it's warm enough to wear it.
11. 1 bathrobe
12. 2 nightgowns or pajamas or whatever for sleeping.
What I sleep in depends on the day & if I'm alone or not.
13. and yes, underwear
Yes. My aunt works for Jockey, I have 48 pairs of panties. (You can't beat 10 cents apiece for panties. You really can't.)
I guess I would add a black blazer as well as a couple of silky camisoles to go under them. I have a corduroy blazer that zips up, a brown one, and a black pinstriped one. I love them.
For me, I have to have a sweatshirt. I have a black one that I wear everywhere, it's my security blanket. It's going to look dumb on me soon b/c it's a 26/28 from Lane Bryant. I'm not giving this puppy up til I fit in a size 18!!!!! In high school I had a red one, now it is this black one.
Let's see, what else?
Sweatsuit--hooded zippered up the front sweatshirt & matching sweatpants. Charcoal grey.
2 pairs of jeans--1 black, 1 blue. Black jeans only look good if they're not too faded.
For the summer, I have a lot of tank dresses & flowery skirts. I wear the skirts w/different colored T shirts, and the tank dresses go under the white blouse.
Wow. I just re-read everything I typed. Yowza. I am definitely a clothes horse.
Edited to add:
Forgot about summer vs winter clothes. In the summer, I wear a lot of tank tops under camp shirts & these awesome black capris I got @ Kmart. In the winter, I wear a lot of sweaters w/turtlenecks underneath them.
