A white t-shirt may seem boring, but it is a necessary staple in your wardrobe. Wear it with a pair of blue jeans and jewelry, and you have a cute, simple outfit. You can also throw it under a jacket for an elevated look. Swap the white t-shirt for a white turtleneck and pair it under graphic tees or dresses if you live in a colder climate. It may seem boring, but trust me; you’ll wear the white t-shirt more than you expect!

2. Black Dress

A black dress is a great basic to have for any event. Black looks dressy, so you can wear it for almost any occasion and look presentable. Have a casual event? Dress it down with white sneakers and a jean jacket on top. Need to go somewhere fancy? Add some statement heels and jewelry. You can find a black dress almost anywhere, and in any style you like! Check out Lulus, Windsor, or Target to find one. 

3. Hoop Earrings

A good pair of gold hoops can elevate any seemingly simple outfit. The same pair of hoops can spice up an everyday outfit or be added to a dress for a classy event. Don’t have your ears pierced? Not a problem! You can also wear clip-on earrings and will get the same effect. 

4. White Sneakers

White sneakers are the perfect footwear to add to your closet that goes with almost anything! Since white is a neutral color, they can pair with any pattern or outfit. Unsure of which sneakers to buy? Try brands such as Converse, Nike, Adidas, or Rebook.

A lightweight jacket is a great statement piece to keep in your closet. Pair it with a white or black t-shirt and some blue jeans, and you’ll have a fashionable outfit. I recommended looking for a corduroy, jean, or leather jacket. Check out American Eagle or Nordstrom for some affordable, trendy, and cute options!
