Hey guys! Today’s article is all about the basic pieces that are your wardrobe essentials. Trends come and go but these are pieces that you can build your closet around. These pieces work great on their own, paired with each other and can be worn with so many different outfits. Today I’m going to be sharing with you what my top 5 things are that you need in your closet.

A fitting pair of jeans is an essential item in any closet. I especially love skinny jeans–black ones! I feel like these jeans actually compliment my figure the most and make my legs look long and slim. Any dark color pair of jeans that you feel comfortable in is essential to your closet.

Many stylists will say that something like a little black dress is essential in your closet. But I personally say that any dress that makes you feel great about yourself is your go-to dress. So, whether it’s a little black dress or white dress or something that you feel great about yourself in is something that you need to have in your closet.

I think a loose fitting t-shirt adds a lot more style to a typical t-shirt and looks a lot more effortless. They can be worn in so many different ways– you can wear them on its own with a pair of jeans or you can pair them with a leather jacket. They can be styled with a bunch of different outfits and look stylish even when you haven’t put in any effort to it technically.

A layering jacket is a must in your wardrobe. I personally love the look of a leather jacket. I also love military jackets; it’s a casual alternative to a more dressed up leather look. Either way, any kind of layering jacket that fits your personal style is a must for your closet.

I think this is the time in my top 5 closet list that I should be telling you that you need to own a great pair of heels. No, I am not going to do that. For me, a great pair of casual yet stylish pair of shoes is an essential in your closet. I would prefer ankle boots– I love wearing ankle boots. They kind of instantly add style to an outfit. If you’re someone who has more girly style, you can wear ballet flats for a polished look.

Alright guys, these are great staples to have in your closet and are essential to building the closet you’ve always wanted!
