10 Basic Must-Haves in your closet

1:31 PM

You go shopping, you enter the store and see all these amazing pieces that are out of this world and you think they will really make a statement and you're dying to have them. You take a ton of them into the fitting room and you end up buying almost all of it. You're really excited about all your new acquisitions, you get home, you put it all in your closet and you just want it to be the next day so you can wear your new clothes for the first time. Two or three months later, some of the "amazing" things you bought are still hanging in your closet with the price tag still on them. I know I've been there and I'm sure you've been in this situation at least a couple of times.

Before you go spending a large sum of money on these statement pieces that will probably go out of fashion really fast and that you'll wear once or twice if you're lucky because you can't find anything to wear them with, you have to build yourself a basic wardrobe.

Here are 10 clothing items every girl should own before shopping for anything else:

1. Little black dress

H&M

Everyone should own at least one LBD, you can dress it either up or down. Wear it with flats and a cardigan for a casual day look, take the cardigan off and slip into a pair of pumps and you have a night time outfit.

2. A pair of Jeans that fit you like a glove

Jeans have to fit you perfectly. You don't want them to be so tight you can't breathe, but you don't want them to be baggy either. I would go for a pair of skinnies or a boot cut. By all means, avoid flared jeans, they are so difficult to pull off.
3. Black heels

Like the LBD, black heels are also a complete must have. You can wear them with anything and they can be fancy or casual. Also, get yourself some nude pumps for those outfits that black won't go as well with.

4. Blazer

I don't know why, but blazers have a super power. You could be wearing almost anything and by putting on a blazer, you'll look completely put together and it'll look like you spent so much time on your outfit that day. You could be wearing a t-shirt and jeans and look like you were too lazy and as soon as you put a blazer on, it all changes. I recommend them mostly in black and white.


5. Pain White Tee

White t-shirts are so useful! Wear them with jeans and a cute blazer, with a skirt, shorts... with anything at all! If you think your outfit looks too basic, wear a statement necklace or a colorful blazer. Also, tees and tank tops in every color come really in handy to mix and match.

6. Ballet Flats / Loafers

You're not going to be wearing heels every day of your life at all times, so you better get some girly and cute flats, preferably in neutral colors.


7. White shirt and Denim shirt

A whit shirt you can wear with jeans and combat boots, with a pencil skirt, with colored jeans, with denim shorts, etc. and you will look completely put together (like with the blazer) and feminine. On the other hand, a denim shirt will make you look more relaxed, yet totally fab!


8. Trench Coat

Even if you live in a place where it's warm all year long and you just get a couple of cold days a year like me, you need a coat. I always suffer during winter because I don't have any warm outerwear. I'm always telling myself, why would I buy myself a coat if I will wear it two times a year at the most? The answer: because otherwise you will freeze like you do every year in Christmas and New Years. 2014 resolution: invest in a classic black coat before winter.

10. Perfect handbag

An outfit is never complete without a good handbag. Everyone needs at least an everyday handbag, a statement handbag and a clutch. EVERYONE. For school I would suggest to get a big tote or handbag you can use everyday and that will go with everything so you don't "wear out" your nice bags.

Once you have this must have basics, you can start buying statement pieces you can wear with your basics. I wouldn't invest so much in statement pieces, you should do so with basics instead. You will wear them many more times and they will last a lot more if you get quality items.


What do you think? Do you agree with these basics? What else would you include in the list? 

Have a nice week!
