Five Basic Fashion Essentials For Your Closet
I’m sure this is something that happens with almost everyone and all of you must have found yourself in this situation. Every morning when you open your closet, despite all the clothes, you are confused to choose something perfect for you. Every day this question follows you whether it’s waking up in the morning to heading to college or work or getting ready for a night occasion. You always feel that there is nothing perfect to wear. This feeling forces you to keep buying more and more in the end, you end up with many unnecessary things in your closet.
After spending a lot of years in such confusion, I realised that every time when I get ready, I keep my hands on some basic clothes in my wardrobe. I reached this conclusion that some basic fashion essentials are the need of every girl which they should definitely have in their closet. Every person has different needs and requirement, all depends on your choice and personality. I got these five basic fashion essentials that I always find great and versatile and want to wear over and over. Most important thing is that whenever I have to get ready in a hurry I know what need to wear. Of course, wardrobe staples differ from season to season but in today’s post I would like to talk about some basics that I find are essential enough throughout the year.
You can never go wrong with a basic white tee! I love wearing white t-shirts with jeans, trousers etc. White tees can be effortlessly styled with shorts, jeans, skirts, palazzos– in short, everything! They can be layered in winters, worn with a blazer for a semi-formal look. I really like slogan t-shirts too which carry a fun or powerful message. You must have seen me styling a white-tee in so many different ways- HERE & HERE. Today’s outfit features a new white tee from Roundneck; I’ll be talking more about it later in the post. The point is that every girl should stock on some cool white t-shirts in her closet.
Do I really need to say something about this? I’m pretty sure all of you already own a few perfect pairs of denims, according to your body type and if you don’t I suggest you ransack the stores right away. A well fitted blue denim jeans is an absolute essential. Investing in a good pair of denim jeans is never a bad idea because they last so many years. For me, a classic blue and black jeans are a must-have because I wear them all the time when I’m not wearing an ethnic outfit. Blue denim comes with lots of contemporary twists like embroidery, rips etc which are always a great side choice!
It took me quite a long time to find a high-quality classic leather jacket but ever since I did, I haven’t stopped wearing it(HERE). If you are lucky to find a black leather jacket at a reasonable price, well and good otherwise you can ever splurge into one because it’s worth it. Black leather jacket can be styled with absolutely anything, from a simple T-shirt to chunky knitwear. It looks classy, edgy and is a statement piece in itself. Just like denim, a good quality leather jacket stays with you for a long time.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a heels person or a flats lover, a pair of white trainers is an absolute essential in every girl’s shoe closet. You can slip them on with any outfit for a comfortable and casual look. I like wearing white shoes with casual dresses, joggers and jeans. White trainers go with everything and add a fresh, sporty touch to your outfit!
When in doubt, wear a black dress! A beautiful black dress can be easily worn throughout the year. In summers, you can style it in various ways while in winters you can layer it with a coat or jacket. Black dresses look elegant, glamorous and classy. I personally prefer black midi dresses but an LBD is just as good.

Coming to my outfit-
In today’s outfit, I’m wearing one of the above mentioned basics- white t-shirt. Roundneck gifted me this lovely tee in the Diwali week and it’s perfect for the occasion! It’s a simple white t-shirt with a dynamite that says ‘pataka’. I’ve already featured this brand earlier and would say this again that I love the quality of their t-shirts. It’s simple, roundneck, half sleeves, the design adds a pop of colour. I added a faux suede jacket to keep myself warm and paired it with blue embroidered jeans. What do you think about this outfit?
