There are certain classic pieces in a woman’s wardrobe that will never go out of style. Trends will come and go, but these basics will always stay in vogue. These are the clothes that come to your rescue on days when you have “nothing to wear”, which, let's be honest, happens to the best of us every other day! So we absolutely insist that you grab some of these staples, because they can be styled endlessly.
If you are planning to build a classic closet, here are the essentials you need to stock up on.
A pair of good white shoes is simply non-negotiable for a classic wardrobe. There’s a reason why they are also a celebrity favourite right now. Not only can you comfortably walk in them the entire day, but they also add an extra dose of ‘cool’ to any outfit.

Layers are fun, especially when workwear is concerned. A well-fitted blazer can give even the most unlikely office wear outfit a formal touch. The more you have, the merrier you will be. Grab one in black, a neutral shade and a bright colour (blue or red).to make dressing for office less complicated.

Highrise, tapered, slim fit or wide-legged, black pants--regardless of their style--are here to stay forever. These trousers make the foundation of a polished outfit. Wear them to job interviews, and formal parties to look like the power woman that you are.

The good ol’ LBD needs no introduction. From a knitted dress to skater and bodycon to a wrap dress, an LBD is one dress that can be found in the wardrobes of millions of women, in endless styles.
How To Style: Wear your LBD with your white sneakers and denim jackets for the girl-next-door look or accessorize it with a statement neck piece, heels and a clutch for date nights.
Just like your little black dress, the elegance of a black pencil skirt goes without saying. It can be the most office-appropriate outfit ever and the perfect club night outfit too. A pencil skirt can amaze you with its versatility.
How To Style: Pair it with your regular button-downs for work and with a sequined blouse for the late-night affairs.
This is another cool option when it comes to layering. You know what the best thing about owning a denim jacket is? You can wear it regardless of the season! So when it’s July but it has just rained and the mornings feel a little chilly, throw your denim jacket over your outfit. This way you can stay warm while also giving an instant upgrade to your outfit.
How To Style: You can wear a denim jacket over your sundress or t-shirts in the summer and over your turtleneck and sweater in winters.
This is the perfect companion for all your formal and casual outfits. It should be big enough to hold everything that you need when you are on the go!
How To Style: Buy a tote in a solid colour or cute prints. Or both, because you can never have enough totes whatsoever!
