Fashion File: Closet Staples that Make a Great Wardrobe Foundation

The secret to easy effortless dressing is not just having great style but a well-rounded wardrobe full of classic and timeless pieces that go with everything and that can take you from one season to another. The building blocks of your wardrobe should include staples such as a classic white shirt, a trusty pair of skinny jeans, a sleek black blazer, a worn in denim jacket (great for layering!), and an array of shoes for every type of occasion. While you can definitely extend this list (don’t we all love fashion!), I can guarantee that these are enough to get you out of any occasion.

Don’t be caught again without something to wear! Make sure these wardrobe essentials are part of your everyday basics and you’ll see that besides having something (chic) to wear, any new acquisition (trendy or not) you make will fit perfectly fine with what you already own šŸ˜‰
