5 Basic Fashion Essentials for Your Closet


It’s on every girl’s mind. Whether it’s waking up in the morning to head to work or getting glammed up for a night out on the town, we’re all thinking it: What should I wear?! You’ve probably got a million things in your closet, but not all will be versatile enough to take you through the day, the week or even the years.

But there are five basic (and vital) fashion essentials that every gal should have in her closet,  that you can not only wear over and over — but more importantly — when that inevitable moment comes when it’s time to get dressed, you’ll know just what to grab!

1. Little Black Dress

A classic black dress that’s versatile and easy to wear is one of the most staple fashion essentials for every woman’s wardrobe. Find a classic piece that flatters your body type and that you can wear during the day at the office straight into the night for a cocktail (or two).

The Camille Dress for $148.00 from Jcrew.com is one that looks great on all shapes and sizes. For something a little more flirty and fun, the Aphrodite Dress, $138, from Anthropologie.com is one to try.

2. Good Pair of Denim

Jeans come in all different styles, but choosing the ones that fit you comfortably and show off your curves is a definite must-have fashion essential. You’ll find yourself going back to them for everything from your Casual Fridays to your weekend adventures.

If you’re looking for a looser fit, try the Boyjean, $98.50, from Madewell.com. Fans of the skinny jeans can opt for a cool pair of Looker Ankle Zip from Mother, $200, from Shopbop.com.

3. Staple Pumps

The right pair of quality high heels can be perfect for work or play. Finding a pair in a black or nude shade will go with any outfit and help you look classy and refined. Plus, these classic beauties help elongate your legs and show off all your hard work at the gym!

Try the Vince Camuto Hallee pumps, $97.95, from Nordstrom.com or Licorice Patent Leather pumps by Kate Spade, $328, from Saks.com.

4. Well-Fitted Blazer

A well-fitting blazer is another one of those fashion essentials that can provide endless looks and uses. Pair it with your favorite jeans and T-shirt and you’ve got a put-together causal look. Or throw it on with a pencil skirt or tailored pants, and you’re ready for the office. A great blazer is also the perfect topper to a sleek cocktail dress for your night out.

A classic favorite is the Collection Women’sLudlow Jacket, $375, Jcrew.com or the Long Seamed Blazer, $129, Zara.com can really work any outfit.

5. Statement Jewelry

Whether it’s a bold necklace or fun earrings, a statement jewelry piece can really put a punch to your outfit and make you stand out! Baublebar.com is a fantastic resource that provides excellent options for all things accessories. You’ll find a range in all prices and styles that will be sure to fit your needs.

Lizzie Fortunato’s The Paris Confidential Necklace, $405, is sure to turn heads wherever you go. Or if you’re on a budget, the Coral Mesh Bib, $44, provides just the right amount of touch and splash of color to play up any outfit.
