Never be caught without something to wear again! Thanks to the perfect white tee, a sharp blazer, a chic LBD, and these three other wardrobe essentials, day-to-day dressing will be infinitely easier.
There’s a reason everyone loves a good pair of ballet flats: They’re equal parts chic and comfortable! Use them to dress up your jeans and button-down combination, then seamlessly transition that same pair to a cocktail dress for night. Your outfits (and feet!) will thank you.
An Elegant Blazer
Need an extra something to pull together an office look? Blazer. A great outerwear substitute when it’s not quite cold enough for a heavy coat? Blazer. The can’t-go-wrong jacket to throw on over your cocktail dress? Blazer, blazer, blazer.
Classic Black Pants
Every gal needs one pair of black pants that will always make her feel good—the cut (high-waist or low rise, cropped or wide-leg) is up to you. Wear them with a silk blouse and pumps for work or a T-shirt on a chill Saturday.
A Pair of Classic Pumps
Flats may have had a major revival this year, but there’s no escaping that heels are still a strong must-have. One pair in a neutral hue like black or gray will take you from the boardroom to the bar with ease.
A Classic White Shirt/Plain White Tee
With endless options for how to wear it, consider the classic white shirt your wardrobe’s pinch hitter. Since finding the right one can be a bit of a process, heed our advice: Go with a popover if your chest is on the larger side or a style with more detailing on the front to make a small chest look bigger.
There’s really nothing more versatile than a plain white T-Shirt I think and I’m hoping you’ll agree with me. Whether you layer this perfect T-shirt under a sweater or over a tank top, tuck it into a skirt or let it hang free with a pair of denim cut-offs, one thing is for sure: Nothing is more essential to your closet than this trusty staple.
A Little Black Dress
No item is more of a blank slate for accessorizing and styling yet completely chic on its own. Bravo, LBD! You’ve gotten us through some tough times and we don’t know what we would do without you
