I always encourage the ladies that ask these questions to start with really high quality basics that are absolutely timeless. Taking your wardrobe back to bare bones can be refreshing and it's a great way to build a foundation that you can slowly grow on. Very few people have the money or patience to shop for an entire wardrobe at once. Keying in on beautiful basics first makes the process simple and makes getting dressed and putting together outfits right away easy.
Here are 10 classic wardrobe staples that are a great place to start... or maybe you have a solid wardrobe, but you need to refresh a few pieces. These are the pieces I like to make sure I always have on hand for a well rounded closet.
A classic cardigan is perfect for layering over tees, tanks or plaid shirts this fall.
I love this plaid scarf, it's classic and the colors will work perfect with other neutrals in your closet. Plus, it adds a bit of style and texture to any fall look.
These slouchy fit jeans are the next iteration of boyfriend jeans. They are a modern and casual and perfect for pairing with sweaters or blouses for a pulled together but laid back look.
A pair of classic black flats are perfect for everyday wear. Pair them with leggings or jeans, sweaters and jeans for an easy and comfortable shoe option.
A striped top is a classic wardrobe staple that is great for layering or wearing on it's own. It's the perfect upgrade to a standard t-shirt.
A top with visual interest like this white bell sleeve top is great to have on hand to look and feel a little dressier without sacrificing comfort.
Ankle boots are the perfect way to bring any look into fall. The small heel gives them a sophisticated feel when paired with a great pair of jeans.
Classic sweaters like this black sweater are great to have on hand for cooler fall and winter days. They don't have to be anything fancy, but a knit always looks great. I love every thing Everlane carries if you are looking for classic sweaters.
A simple trench coat will never go out of style and will always elevate any look as an extra layer!
Last but certainly not least, I always depend on a great pair of black jeans for an ultra flattering but comfortable and practical foundation to any outfit.
