5 Essentials Everyone Needs In Their Closet

In a world with fast fashion, we can easily become overwhelmed with new trends. We find ourselves thinking that we’re out of the loop because of all of the new clothing being thrown at us throughout the year.

There are articles of clothing that are so universal that they can be worn at all times, and everyone can find a version that fits their body type in a comfortable and flattering way.

Here are 5 basic staples that are musts in any wardrobe this spring.

1. Dark Denim

Everyone needs a pair of jeans that fits them just right. From skinny jean or flare, to bootcut or cropped —the options are endless. A pair of dark jeans can be worn in almost any situation, whether you want to dress up or down. This makes life easier especially with a busy college schedule.

3. Black Booties

Just like a pair of your favorite jeans, this will be different for everyone, but a pair of comfortable black shoes with a little bit of heel are essential to any wardrobe.

4. Denim Jacket

This has been in style for decades and it does not look like it is going away anytime soon. Like most of these articles of clothing, it can be worn during the day, but also dressed up for a night on the town.

5. Basic T-shirt

A comfortable and lightweight shirt that can be worn with leggings or jeans is a perfect go-to when in a hurry. Having an array of basic tees is essential for any fashionista looking to make the most out of every piece of clothing in their closet.
