Do you find yourself stressing about what to wear each morning?
If you are like me you have always dreamed of being able to get ready in mere minutes
So today is the day we get started on making that happen.
Okay, let’s do this.
Adding interchangeable garments are the essentials of good style and the secret to making getting dressed each morning a hassle-free experience.
From season to season these basic staples are the key. The kinds of pieces that’ll go with almost anything in your wardrobe, and compliment any trend-led piece you decided to buy which should only be a few each season.
These interchangeable wardrobe basics are investment pieces that’ll make you look good all year round—no matter the occasion, and form the foundation to build your day-to-day style.
Let’s take a look……
Simple Neutral Flats
Black, khaki, neutrals, and navy all make for great investment shades when it comes to wear-anywhere flat shoes. This can be ballet flats, loafers or mules, look for styles that offer comfort and versatility. I love the look and comfort that flats provide.
A good pair of black pants will serve your wardrobe endlessly. Look for structured fabrics that offer stretch and support—they’ll be far more flattering this way. Wear with heels, flats or ankle boots. Changing your shoe style will completely change your look with slim pants taking you from workday to evening. Remember to think of high waisted for a smooth look under sweaters and blouses. The style works great with the other basic tops, such as a basic white blouse.
Little Black Dress
This black dress is universally flattering. It’s simple enough for daytime wear but special enough to transition into a nighttime look. Layer it with blouses, t-shirts or knits, and opt for a knee-skimming or midi length so you can wear it with sandals in the summer, then tights and boots come winter.
A modern classic, the midi dress is a hardworking garment in all seasons. Wearing it over jeans is currently a street style favorite for chillier weather, though you’ll get extra wear out of this by layering it under blazers and chunky knits too. Shirt dress styles are always flattering, while wrap dresses can be worn open for a kimono effect.
The savior of all evening outfits, a pair of comfortable black heels will become your best friend. Court shoes or heeled pumps are the ultimate in where-anywhere footwear, while black strappy sandals will finish any night out ensemble.
Black Crew Neck Tee
Simple pieces are what make so timeless. A black crew neck tee is so basic but perfectly styled. The dark color is flattering and brings attention to your face. Mix and match with your other wardrobe items for tons of different outfit looks
Nothing’s more classic than a striped t-shirt. Another classic, you can’t go wrong with Breton stripes. Whether you opt for classic navy blue or red, keep to simple shapes like a long-sleeved crew neck to make sure your stripes remain timeless.
The versatile turtleneck provides warmth and looks so classic. Wear as a pairing with jeans or layer under button ups shirts. How cute is a turtleneck with a skirt, tights, and boots? Love!
Simple White Shirt
The most important thing here is the fit. Look for a tailored, slightly looser-fit white shirt that flatters and skims your figure, without bulging at the buttons. A fantastic look when teamed with denim jeans and a blazer, this is one piece that will look great for work and play. The collar can be worn folded or flipped up at the back.
Perfect White Tee Shirt
Whether you’re teaming it with jeans, suit trousers or layering it under a slip dress or cami top, the perfect white t-shirt is the gift that keeps on giving.
In today’s modern look a good fitting pair of dark washed jeans is a must-have. So easy to mix and match with a turtleneck, white button-up shirt or a jacket. A definite wardrobe must have.
While skinny or straight-leg jeans are perhaps the most versatile denim investments, the most important factor here is the fit. Find a pair that is comfortable and flattering so you can dress them up or down for years to come.
A Long Line Jacket
Whether you go for classic black or heritage-inspired checks, a longline blazer will see you through every season. Throw it on overwork separates and dresses during the day, then pair with jeans or smart leggings and heels come evening.
A good pair of ankle boots is a must. We’d suggest investing in a mid-height heel so that you can dress them up or down, while block heels will be comfier than stilettos. Perfect for wearing with dresses, leggings or jeans, classic black will always be a staple, though red, metallics or leopard print are a timeless way to jazz up otherwise plain outfits.
Classic Coat Knee-Length
Basic classic look jacket. If you pick the right style and color your coat will last you until 1) you just want something different or 2) you finally wear it out 15 years later. I have a jacket that I bought 10 years ago and it still is my favorite jacket and looks great because it is a timeless style and quality fabric.

An effortless style is achievable if you build a good basics wardrobe. Start by building your wardrobe basic pieces. You may already have some of these staples so just keep adding until you have them all. You will find that you don’t need a closet full of items and still nothing to wear if you add any of these ten classic pieces to your personal wardrobe and go from there.
