Some trends come and go and some trends stay forever- these are the basics, the key pieces that never go out of style; they are the building blocks of a perfect wardrobe.

 

So, whether you’re looking to start over or simply wish to update an old favorite, use this checklist to build a strong foundation of timeless pieces that can be paired with almost anything in your closet and trust me your day-to-day dressing will be infinitely easier.

 

White tee

 

Is there anything more versatile? A crewneck cut white t-shirt is a no-brainer. Whether you layer it under a sweater or over a tank top, tuck it into a skirt or let it hang free with a pair of denim, nothing is more essential to your closet than this trusty staple.

 

 

Skinny jeans

 

Whether they are slim, cropped, skinny, or bootcut, every woman needs a pair of jeans that makes their butt look good. Instant mood-booster! A true-blue wash will go with everything and a dark-wash are super slimming and they also work for a wider range of events than other washes.

 

 

Black pumps

 

When it comes to shoes, you can always rely on black pumps as they are the most versatile option. At once sophisticated and sultry, they’re perfectly suited to almost any outfit and occasion.

 

 

White shirt

 

What can your white button-down do for you? Well it can add a crisp polish to both your work and off-duty uniform. With endless options for how to wear it, consider the classic white shirt your wardrobe's pinch hitter.

 

 

Mini dress

 

A dress style that will stand the test of time. Yes, it’s the little black dress! No item is more of a blank slate for accessorizing and styling yet completely chic on its own.

 

 

Ballerinas

 

When you need a break from your heels, neutral-colored ballerina flats serve as the ideal substitute. They're equally chic and comfortable! Use them to dress up your jeans and shirt combination, then seamlessly transition that same pair to a cocktail dress for night.

 

 

Elegant blazer

 

You’re looking for something extra to pull together an office look? A great outerwear substitute when it's not quite cold enough for a heavy coat? A can't-go-wrong jacket to throw on over your cocktail dress?  Blazer, blazer and blazer.

 

 

Slip-On Sneakers

 

The slip-on sneaker made a big hit this season, and booked its place on the wardrobe-essentials list. It’s comfortable enough to walk for miles but chicer than traditional running shoes, and it will give any outfit an extra dose of cool.

 

 

Classic Black Pants

 

Every girl needs one pair of black pants that will always make her feel good, the cut and style are up to you. You can wear them with a blouse and pumps for work or a T-shirt on a chill weekend.

 

 

Vest

 

A white vest has its best place, at the gym and for casual outings, and a black one is more universal, it can be worn with everything from jeans to a cocktail skirt.
