I thought I’d start with this topic first because like I said, I live for clothes that I can dress up or down. I believe that everyone needs at least one of these pieces in their closet because they have endless uses and are the most simplistic things to shop for. Knowing where to start with your outfits will allow you to be cute and casual or completely fashion forward whether that’s running errands or heading out to date night.
Plain white tops
Its true, a plain white top does everything you need and more to an outfit. Make it totally casual with your favorite pair of blue jeans or toss on some fun accessories for some chic wear. There are endless opportunities with plain white tops, which is why it’s at the top of the list! Take advantage of them.
Everyone needs those jeans that are adjusted perfectly to your body because of your own wear and tear to them. Whether they are denim, black or white jeans, finding that right pair will benefit you and make completing your outfits a breeze.

Neutral pair of shoes
Having that one go-to neutral pair of shoes is so essential. Knowing that you have shoes that you can slip on with any outfit is in my opinion, is a stress reliever, especially on those hectic mornings. Plus, it’s one less thing to worry about when picking out an outfit. (& yes! I do believe leopard is a neutral. Pair it with black jeans and a white top and you're dressed to the nines)

Everyone needs a denim jacket in their life. They can be for a cute and casual look or maybe a black denim jacket for a rocker look. Either way denim jackets are timeless. This classic piece will last you, maybe the rest of your lifetime.
Go-to lounge wear
This is something not commonly seen on wardrobe essentials list. I decided to put this on because honestly, who doesn't love to be comfy. While they are the ultimate chill at home outfit, it is useful to style sweatpants like joggers. You can totally still be cute while feeling cozy while out and about.

Okay, you’re probably thinking… well duh? I think many people have used leggings as a way to lounge, which is totally okay. While they are comfy and flexible, remember you can dress them up too. Wear a big oversized sweater toss on a jacket and viola! You have a complete outfit that is warm and comfy.
