No wardrobe is complete without a few basics. These things will pull your closet together and make it so that you'll never have a day when you have nothing to wear. From here, you'll be able to add a few pieces every season that'll keep your style up to date. Fashion basics are classic and can be worn for years. Here are a few essentials:Trench Coat
A classic tan trench coat works with any outfit and instantly dresses up an ensemble. Pick one in a timeless cut and you'll be wearing it for years! Pop it over a summery frock in spring, or layer it with a swear in the fall. This is a multi-season, multi-year investment. Ballet Flat
If you had to invest in any flat shoe, make it a ballet flat. You can wear it with any outfit for a pulled together look. It works with jeans on a grocery run, or with a skirt for a dinner party. Classic styles by Repetto, Delman or Bloch work best. Black Pump
A good black pump will take you through every event you need. From office events to cocktail parties, you'll be glad you have it. Pick one in a classic shape with a modern heel and you'll never want for anything else. White Shirt
A well-fitting white button down shirt is a staple you can't argue with. It looks crisp and clean and always makes you look smart and stylish. Pair it with jeans during the day, a sassy skirt at night, or even shorts on the weekend. You'll look polished at all times. Dark Jeans
A good pair of dark jean is all you need. Whether you go with a skinny, boot leg or wide leg style, you'll always look polished and put together. During the day, wear your jeans with a cute top or tee then at night, top your look off with a blazer and heels and grab some cocktails with the girls. Black Dress
Every woman needs a little black dress in her closet. Choose a classic cut and you're all set for any event. Change the jewelry and shoes you wear it with and you'll have dozens of combinations that'll get you compliments every time you wear it.
