Ready to get back to basics? Monday is the perfect time to re-think our wardrobe essentials. And if you’re thinking of refreshing your wardrobe for a spring – summer season, this post is for you!
While trends come and go, there are 10 wardrobe essentials that’ll last a lifetime. It’s all about the basics, the kind that will help you bring your outfits together from start to finish without having to spend hours figuring out what to wear ( and let’s be honest we all do that! ).
Below, I’ve outlined 10 items I turn to whenever I’m having a hard time figuring out my outfit of the day, all of these items can be easily mixed and matched to create more outfits.
No offense to skinny jeans but the new go-to this season among the denim is loose jeans, straight-leg jeans and mom jeans. This basic piece of clothing is an essential to every woman’s wardrobe. And no matter the trend every woman needs a pair of jeans that makes her butt look good.
White tee is a piece that’s you can wear any day of the year. No closet is complete without one.
These are the new heels. Classic white kicks are a casual basic that will go with everything from jeans to a dress.
Wether you’re throwing it over a pretty dress or wearing it with jeans or leggings, a leather jacket is a timeless piece you’ll wear for years. I like to go a size up so you can pair it with a sweater at a colder times.
Even if you don’t work in an office, every woman should have at least one blazer. In my last blogpost I shared a variety of affordable Blazers! Go check it out if you’re thinking of buying a new one!
We obsess over the turtlenecks and we do have a good reason. Get one in a thinner fabric so it can be tucked into jeans, layered under jumpsuits, or worn with literally anything else your heart desires.
BLACK ANKLE BOOTTIE
I have my favorite black bottles for 4 years now and wear it all the time! These go with every outfit wether you want to wear pants, jeans or a dress. Investing in a good pair is not a bad idea since you’ll wear them all the time.
Wether they are tie-waisted, paperbag style or just classy pencil straight a pair of these will go for anywhere you go. It is also this seasons big trend so the variety of styles will make it easy to choose.
WHITE BUTTON DOWN
Think of it as a White Tee. It always keeps a balance between looking casual and official. Mix with a pair of jeans or a pencil skirt depending on an occasion.
LITTLE BLACK DRESS
Really no explanation needed. Wear it with a pair of pumps for an occasion or dress down with a pair of sneakers.
These are my 10 wardrobe basics that I think should be in every woman closet. Some of us like to follow trends, some keep their own timeless style but these items should complete any of your preferences and save you a huge amount of time frustrating what to wear! I mostly turn to jeans, white or black tee and a jacket or leather jacket whenever I have those moments of weakness! But any of these pieces will come in handy whenever thinking of your next look.
Hope this was helpful in any way to you and you saved something to your wishlist!
