Every working girl should have a few staple items of clothing in their wardrobe.

They facilitate outfit building and make you look put-together with ease. They are also a foolproof way for your to ensure you’re always looking stylish.

Keep reading to find out which ones you need to buy now as an elegant young professional!


Firstly, let’s define what basics actually qualify as.

Basics are clothing pieces that are neutral (colors include: white, black, grey, beige and khaki), they’re versatile (they can be paired really easily with just about anything), they’re great for layering and they certainly never go out of style.

Ok. Now that we understand my definition of basics, let’s see which ones should be in your closet.


Basic one: Classic white or black T-shirts.

The number one reason everyone needs a basic tee is because they match literally everything.

When you don’t know what top to wear with a pair of patterned pants or neon skirt, you can always count on a basic tee to finish off your outfit. Basic tees are also great layering pieces.

You can wear them under a blazer or a sweater for extra warmth.


Basic two: a really great blazer.

I believe every working woman should have a blazer they feel great in. A blazer is the type of clothing that is easy to wear with any bottom, but that will never fail to make you look put-together and professional.

Another great thing about them is you don’t only have to wear them to work! They look great with jeans too.


Basic three: a good pair of comfortable jeans.

Jeans are a definite must-have in your wardrobe. They are good for so MANY different reasons and occasions.

You can wear them on the weekend, when you go for dinner, on casual Friday, to run errands…the list goes on!

Make sure you get yourself a comfortable pair of jean you feel amazing in. You won’t regret it and you will definitely get your money’s worth.


Basic four: a (faux) leather jacket.

A leather jacket is the kind of jacket that looks good with everything. Whether I’m wearing jeans, leggings or a dress, more often than not I reach for my leather jacket. It’s probably my favourite piece of outerwear I own and is absolutely timeless.


Basic five: a coat you can wear year round.

The coat I personally wear year round is my trench coat. There are a few reasons why. The first being that it is long and therefore covers most of my body from the cold in the winter.

It’s also both thick enough to be worn in the winter and thin enough to be worn in the spring/summer.

In the winter, I’ll simply layer a warmer sweater underneath and in the summer, I’ll wear a dress or something lighter.


Basic six: a fantastic sweater.

If you live in Canada or somewhere else with very cold weather, you need a sweater you can always rely on.

For me, that’s my grey wool sweater from H&M. Having a sweater that is neutral, warm, comfortable and fits well with both skirts and pants is an absolute must!

Although it may be hard to find, it’s worth keeping an eye out for. Trust me, you won’t regret the hunt once you find that staple sweater.

Once again, living in a cold country requires a thick, neutral scarf. A scarf you can wear all winter long to work and outside the office is necessary for both style and warmth purposes.

I throw it over pretty much all my outfits because its camel color pairs well with everything!


Conclusion

Every girl needs staple items in her wardrobe! It facilitates the way you get dressed and they’ll last you many years.
