Whether you’re a self-identified fashionista who keeps up with all of the latest styles, or you embrace individuality and march to the beat of your own drum, chances are that you have a few statement pieces in your wardrobe that you can’t live without. From the cute sundress you got when you traveled abroad last summer to the handbag you scored at a local thrift store, you know that when you break your statement piece out, it’s going to be a good day.
No matter how much you love these pieces, one thing is true: they don’t always come together to make an entire outfit. They need a little bit of assistance, a little bit of structure, and that’s where wardrobe basics come into play. While wardrobe basics may not have the potential to stop passersby in their tracks, they’re always there when we need them most: to be the perfect complement to our favorite statement pieces. To make sure that you always have what you need on hand, here's a list of staples that every woman should own:
Okay, so this one might be pretty obvious, but think about it this way: what article of clothing looks great whether it’s paired your favorite skinny jeans, tucked into a trendy pencil skirt, or covered up by a flowy scarf? That’s right: a plain tee. When you’re working with a neutral-colored tee, in black, white, or grey, your pairing options are endless. Whether you’re a traditional crew kind of gal, you would rather opt for a flattering v-neck, you can get all of your tees at District Clothing, your home for fashion tops, fleece, raglans, and more.
A Little Black Dress
Whether you’re going on a dinner date with your beau, checking out the nightlife scene with your favorite ladies, or lounging around the house on one of those days that you just don’t feel like putting on pants, a little black dress is your best friend. Take the juniors' strappy dress from District, for example. You could dress it up for the office with a sophisticated blazer, go for a spunky and chic look by pairing it with patterned leggings and a beanie, or wear it as the perfect backdrop for that sparkly new jewelry you just got. There are countless options, making it the perfect blank slate.
Leggings are another must-have staple for your wardrobe, and while some legging lovers will have half a dozen (or more!) legging options to choose from in their wardrobes at all times, spanning an entire range of colors, patterns, textures, and more. I know that not everyone is a full-fledged rider on the legging bandwagon, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make use of this wardrobe staple like even the most devout fashionistas when the time comes.
I’ll put it to you straight: you don’t have to go crazy buying up a wide range of leggings. Simply have one pair of black, comfortable leggings in your closet, and you’ll be ready to take on the world. Perfect with long sweaters, dresses, skirts, tank tops, and more, you can pair this staple with any number of statement pieces and turn heads like never before.
