For most crossdressers or TG girls, there is a need to have a dual wardrobe for both male and female clothing. When building your femme wardrobe, it is important to get some clothing essentials or wardrobe basics that will offer you some flexibility in your dressing choices. Since Glamour Boutique is your top source for all your crossdresser and transgender clothing options, we wanted to help our girls out. So whether you are exploring the world of crossdressing or already have made the transition, here are some essential clothing items that you will definitely want to invest in that will offer both style and comfort.
A Go-To Casual Dress in Your Favorite Style
No matter what season you are in, you always want to have a casual go-to dress that you can feel both comfortable and fabulous in. Once you find that perfect dress, you will know it. If you are a little lost on where to begin, a good place to start would be to find a silhouette that best suits your shape. For example, a tight-fitting dress may not work best for everyone, but once you see yourself in a flared dress, you will see how amazing you can look. The same could be said for the reverse. If you are super skinny you may get lost in a flared dress but the tight dress, along with some shaping for your hips and butt, will have you looking like a million bucks. If you find a dress that looks so good during the summer but may not work in winter, try changing it up a bit with some leggings and a pair of knee-high boots to make the transition to the cold. Versatility is key here so you can get use out of your go-to dress all year round.
Tank Tops are a basic wardrobe essential that are super handy to have around and are part of a woman’s everyday clothing selection. You can wear them underneath sheer tops or blouses as part of your outfit which makes them a clothing essential when it comes to layering. In the colder months, they are great for giving you some extra warmth. In summer, tank tops are a must as they can keep you cool and show off a little extra skin. Plus they look great with a pair of shorts or tight jeans and sandals. Be sure to have a variety of colors on hand so you can mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe.
A Pair of Go-To Comfortable Boots
As the colder months are starting to set in, it’s time to put your sandals and open-toe shoes away and get those boots out. If you haven’t got a pair of boots to get you through the cooler weather yet, they’re a clothing essential that you’ll certainly want. You should have a pair of flat, super warm and comfy boots on hand like UGGS for those freezing cold days to keep those toes nice and toasty. It is also a must to have a pair of heeled boots so you can up the ante and keep your sexy looks going all winter. We’ve already published a post on 5 of our favorite crossdresser boots for Fall, so take a look and find a pair that’s best for you. Once you have some boots, you can switch back and forth through the seasons as you will now have something for every climate.
Pantyhose and Leggings
One bummer that girls experience is that when the colder weather comes they put away a lot of their warm-weather clothes. Well, there is a way that you can extend those summer outfits into the cooler months. Investing in some good pairs of leggings and pantyhose means you can wear them under your dresses and skirts throughout the winter. Another great choice is a nice pair of leggings with a big heavy sweater. Add some knee-high boots and you have a fun and sexy look. Plus leggings can help keep your butt tight giving you a nice-looking booty. Some girls also prefer their leggings with a blouse and a big winter coat. No matter which way you go, leggings and pantyhose are a must and a wardrobe essential for all women!
A Little Black Dress
In the past, we’ve mentioned the importance of having a Little Black Dress in your wardrobe. The LBD is a must-have in any woman’s closet and can be worn in just about any situation. The little black dress is a staple for a night out as it always exudes class and elegance, and is a fine addition to any wardrobe. When you talk about perfect go-to feminine outfits, there is almost none better than the LBD.
A Comfy Cardigan
A comfy cardigan is a great addition to your wardrobe because it is so multifunctional. Since a cardigan is not too heavy but adds warmth, it is a great top for the spring and fall months or even those chilly summer nights. You can throw it on to sit around the house and be nice and comfy. If you want to go for a coffee, it is great to throw on with a pair of casual jeans to go sit and have your java at the shop. A cardigan is simple and can go with a plain white tee shirt or the above-mentioned tank top and a number of different bottoms like jeans or leggings which is why we’re classing it as a clothing essential for women. A black cardigan is a great go-to, as it can go with just about anything. If you are going for more of a statement look, have some bright colors on hand and really shine.
These six items are essential parts of any crossdresser or transgender clothes closet. Not only are they all functional, but with just these six basics to build off of, you will have a great foundation in your closet that can carry you through any occasion. Whether you’re new to all of this or someone who has been dressing en femme for a while, these clothing essentials are all you need to get out there and be the woman you aspire to be.
