Every stylish woman knows the key to a strong wardrobe is all in the foundation. Although experimenting with playful, trendy pieces is highly encouraged, the basics are what is most important and fundamental in developing chic ensembles. They can be worn alone on days when you desire a look that’s simple and fail-safe, but they can also be built upon and used as a base for a statement outfit. Ahead, we get back to the nitty-gritty and show you the five pieces every woman should absolutely have in her wardrobe. Whether you needed a reminder or haven’t added them to your closet yet, shop the must-have staples here.
Perhaps the most important basic of all, a white T-shirt works as a canvas for all types of looks. Wear it casually with jeans or dress it up with a polished jacket and trousers.
A black tux blazer is a no-brainer when you need to transform your outfit into something more elevated for the office.
The luxe material can be dressed up or down for any occasion. It's sleek and sexy, yet refined, and can be paired with everything from denim to a pencil skirt.
Slimming and versatile, a dark-wash jean is a denim staple that can be transitioned from day to night. Team it with a ruffled blouse and pumps for work or a sexy one-shoulder top for the evening.
We can wax poetic about heels, but a chic pair of flats is a classic and incredibly practical for busy women who are always running around. Go for an of-the-moment loafer mule that's easy to slip into.
