Fashion is ephemeral—what is trending today might not be in vogue tomorrow, which technically means that the next season, your wardrobe could feel relatively outdated. The best way to turn the neverending trend cycle around and do your own thing is to invest in classic pieces. After all, basics never go out of style. Case in point: a striped tee can always be teamed with a pair of blue jeans, no matter what the occasion, as can wardrobe essentials like a white tee, a striped shirt and a jet black handbag.
However, when you feel that your sartorial style is in a rut (we've all been there, tbh) and are out shopping, the experience can be a tedious one. To solve the 'what to wear/what not to wear' question for once and for all, we give you the chic basics that are more than enough to get you through multiple seasons. Before you shop our 'under Rs 500' edit that is not only in your budget, but can be paired seamlessly with just about anything, here are a few failsafe combinations for some winning looks.

A striped tee and jeans are part of the quintessential French-girl style you can incorporate in your wardrobe. The Breton tee is one of the outfits Coco Chanel vouched for, giving you reason enough to add it to cart.
Love graphics? Us too. In case you have spotted a fun slogan tee or a printed graphic version, don't hold your breath. Team your find with a pair of solid-coloured shorts and sneakers, and you will be good to go.

If your love for printed summer dresses surpasses everything else, there is absolutely no looking back. Invest in a dress that is subtle and works well at both the office and away from it. Pro tip: add sneakers to up your fashion game.
Come summer, the need to shed those layers and don some breezy clothing goes up. Speaking of the mercurial changes in weather, nothing makes a chic OOTD like a skirt+shirt combo. What's more, it takes you from the desk to dinner in no time.
Might we add, bringing quirky accessories in the loop helps upgrade your look in a jiffy. From say-it-all slogans to graphic prints that stand out and make heads turn, smart accessories for you and your technology are the new fashion mandate.
