My Must-Have Classic Wardrobe Pieces

My must have wardrobe basics


5 Classic Wardrobe Basics + How To Style Them

How To Style Classic Wardrobe Basics like a white dress

A little white dress is always a wardrobe basic, but especially in the spring and summer! You can easily dress it up or down with the switch of a few accessories. Here I have it styled with another wardrobe basic, a denim jacket. To see how to style a denim jacket 10 ways check out THIS POST. For an elevated, yet casual feel, add espadrilles and a straw tote bag. If you wanted to dress this look up, I would switch out the espadrilles and add the quilted bag from the wardrobe basics list!


How To Style Classic Wardrobe Basics like black pants

Another wardrobe staple is a classic pair of black pants. This was one of my most worn items when I worked as a PT full time. I love that I can wear them all year long and simply switch out my top to make it feel more summery or give them a winter feel. Another most-worn piece of mine are these neutral pointed toe pumps. I’ve worn these to weddings, out to brunch with my girlfriends, to important work meetings and more. They’ve been just about everywhere with me. I love how they instantly make an outfit feel more put together. And they are super comfortable!


How To Style Classic Wardrobe Basics like straight leg jeans

For this girls night out looks we are putting a fun twist on the classic white blazer and straight leg jean. In this look we are using four of our wardrobe basics to create a put-together vibe that is perfect for grabbing drinks with your girl friends. Every wardrobe needs a great pair of jeans that they can pair with a t-shirt and sandals for a casual look or add a blazer and heel to dress it up. This just goes to show that blazers aren’t just for work wear!


How To Style Classic Wardrobe Basics like white denim

For a casual brunch look, pair your favorite white jeans with a sweet striped ruffle top and embellished sandals, like these studded ones! If you wanted to dress this look up even more, trade out the sandals for wedges and add a quilted shoulder bag.

How To Style Classic Wardrobe Basics like denim shorts and a beach sweater

For our final look, we are styling a classic sweater for summer. Simply opt for a light-weight beach sweater like this pink one from Jcrew. Pair it with our favorite denim shorts from Agolde and add in my must-have Tory Burch Miller Sandals. If you’re on the fence of whether to invest in these, read THIS POST first! Then you want to round out the look with a straw hat. For even more straw hats, check out my full roundup of Chic Straw Hats for Every Style.
