Every morning while getting ready for work, I stare blankly at my overflowing closet and I have this heart-wrenching realisation that I have nothing to wear. First world problems, I know, but not one to be taken lightly! TBH there are times I'm willing to call in sick and sulk at home because putting an outfit together seems like a mammoth task! If you too feel like you're stuck in a style rut then clearly it's time for you (and of course, me!) to revamp your wardrobe with timeless pieces.
Put simply, these are the style basics that build the very foundation of your wardrobe and can be paired with any outfit with some tact and minimal effort. Thankfully, our favourite Bollywood celebrities make it very easy for us to up our style game. So take notes, and some much needed inspiration from our tinsel town fashionistas on how to update your look with timeless wardrobe staples.

Very few things in your wardrobe can match the versatility of the basic white tee. Style with your favourite pair of jeans, a flared skirt or under a slip dress - you have options aplenty when it comes to mixing and matching this remarkable staple. We love how Priyanka Chopra pairs the white tee with a tuxedo jacket and wide leg pants, colour-coordinated for a classy business look.

Another wardrobe basic to add to your list is a pair of distressed, dark-wash jeans. Dress down with chunky dad sneakers and an oversized shirt for a day out with friends, or dress up with a fitted bustier and strappy stilettos for a hot date night. Alia Bhatt's street style approved denim-on-denim look is our all-time favourite.

A sexy little black dress is a must-have in every woman's wardrobe. Style it with a leather jacket, a printed bomber or thigh high boots and you are all set to steal the show. We spotted Disha Patani rocking an LBD with white sneakers and we have to admit that the dress and sneakers combo never looked better.

If you know how to wear it right, the denim jacket is probably the only jacket you will ever need. Whether you style it with a pair of cropped jeans like Kangana Ranaut, or throw it over a maxi dress, this wardrobe basic is a woman's best friend. Go for the oversized version if you're feeling adventurous.

Take inspiration from Kareena Kapoor on how to style your blazer for a business-casual look. Wear it with black formal pants and a white button down shirt for a business meeting, cinch at the waist with a skinny leather belt for a night out, or wear over a t-shirt tucked into high-waisted jeans for a chic look like Bebo.

Whether you have one in a crisp cotton or a luscious silk, a white shirt is the real deal. You can team it with your jeans, a black pencil skirt or wear it as a cover up on your next beach vacay - because there really is no wrong way to style a white button-down.
