… for every season, every month, every day, every minute, every second. Ten fashion basics you MUST have in your closet. It’s kind of a rule nowadays. Plus, I am sure you cannot live without these items – your outfits would not be complete without them!
Pick a basic shirt like the Victorialand Basic Oversized Man Shirt – perfect for dressing up with a bib necklace or dressing down with leggings and sandals. Keep a lightweight knit cardigan for those warm yet chilly days and nights like this Jet by John Eshaya Rib Knit Blanket. You can wear it for fall and winter with a pair of boots and a chunky scarf, or spring and summer for those nights at the beach!
Obviously jeans should be in your closet. Unless you are devoted fan to pants, leggings, skirts, or dresses. You can dress jeans up with pumps, go for a chic casual with flats, or get athletic with sneakers. J Brand jeans are definitely the brand to go for comfort and style! Try these Super Skinny Jeans as seen on Ashley Tisdale. You can check out more denim here. To pair with your jeans, get a super tough and sophisticated with a leather jacket. It’s an essential item for a kickbutt cover-up! Try this awesome Stunt Biker leather jacket from muubaa.
The basic handbag is perfect for ANY KIND of outfit. You can have as many patterned and unique bags you want, but if you want to keep it simple and perfect for your day or night outfit, a basic handbag in any color will do! It can be black or blue like this Linea Pelle Dylan Tote. If you are sick and tired of heels but you still want to look pretty fancy, go for flat ballet shoes! It is comfortable and great for work, school, AND play! We love love love the House of Harlow 1960 Baron Velvet Ballerina Flat – velvet and comfort?! HECK YES!
Thank you Coco Chanel for introducing the blazer to women around the world. Now, we can appreciate this “manly staple” for our professional and casual wardrobe. You can transform ANY look into a sharp and chic outfit. Try the Alice + Olivia Melina Fitted Blazer (or you can check out blazers to fit your style here). If you want an alternative to a blazer, try on a trench jacket. Yes, you can make the trench look good – and you can wear it anytime, any season, and any day not just for the rainy seasons! Try our Singer22 approved Pencey Trench!
Complete your look with a basic tee. Now this is one staple I am sure you cannot live without in your closet – get it in different colors and patterns! Wear it for work, school, night out, dinner with the parents, dinner with the significant other, and more! LnA has some great tees such as the Jersey Side Tail V-Neck Tee.
