No matter who you are, what your job is, or where you live, your closet needs these five items. These are pieces you can dress up, dress down or pair with just about anything.
Plain White t-Shirt
A plain white tee is something you can dress up with a blazer (we’ll get to that one next!), a skirt or trousers! Adding splashes of color with accent jewelry, fun shoes or patterned pants, you can truly make this simple white t-shirt reflect your personal style.
When you think “blazer” your first thought may not be that it can be the most versatile item in your closet, but it can be. No matter the color or pattern, blazers can be the cherry on top of your go-to work outfit or the perfect partner to your favorite pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
Dark Wash Denim
Dark wash denim or really any comfortable pair of jeans should ALWAYS be in your closet. Jeans are easy to style, easy to wash, and easy to wear. You can pair them with just about anything you want, most pairs you can just throw in your washer and best of all, you can wear them anywhere. From a night out to brunch on Sunday, jeans can be there for it all. You really can’t go wrong with a good pair of jeans. Just remember, if you haven’t found a pair that you love, keep searching, your perfect pair of jeans are out there.
Little Black Dress
The infamous little black dress. Every woman has one and every woman needs one. Although, if we are all being honest, we have more than one. You can pair your little black dress with bright colors or dull colors, it really doesn’t matter because this dress can be a backdrop for any accessory, jacket or shoes. Even better, the dress can stand alone and still be one of the best items in your closet. It doesn’t matter what style the dress is, as long as you are comfortable, because comfortable means confident!
A button-down shirt, no matter the color, can help you look professional at work and classy afterwards. Paired with a pair of trousers (or a skirt) and a blazer you can make your button-down work for any day on the job. Paired with jeans this look can be your upscale yet relaxed weekend look.
