10 Must-Have Pieces Every Fashionista Should Own

Whether you’re a seasoned style guru or just starting out, a wardrobe filled with essential staples is key to achieving your fashion goals. From polished office looks to casual weekend outings, here are 10 must-have pieces every fashionista should own.

The crisp white button-down shirt is a sartorial staple that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Tuck it into a skirt for a sophisticated office look or wear it loose over jeans to elevate your casual style.

1. White Button-Down Shirt

A classic white button-down shirt is a wardrobe essential that elevates any outfit. It can be dressed up with a blazer and pants or worn casually with jeans and sneakers.

The crisp fabric makes it a perfect choice for important meetings or lunch dates, and it looks just as polished when worn with jeans and a patterned skirt or tucked into high-waist pants. Stylists recommend looking for options made from linen or cotton poplin, which are breathable and have a lightweight feel.

Perfectly Fitted Jeans

A wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or down, a pair of perfectly fitting jeans will take your look to the next level. Aim for a dark wash and skinny fit, as these are the most flattering styles for most people.

When shopping for jeans, always bring three sizes — your usual size, one above it, and one below. Different brands have different sizing systems and it’s important to test out a few fits before you find your perfect pair. If you are a fan of Hannah Montana’s styling, you can look like her from the number of suggestions already popping in here.

Also, consider the composition of your denim — some like a heavier fabric that holds its shape, while others prefer a lighter and stretchier option for comfort. And if you’re still not satisfied with your purchase, don’t be afraid to visit a tailor. A small adjustment (like shortening the legs or taking in waistbands) can be a cost-effective way to make an almost-perfect pair your own.

3. Tailored Blazer

In the ever-evolving world of fashion, certain wardrobe staples remain timeless. From casual chic to professional glam, these closet staples can elevate any look and are a must-have for every fashionista.

Nothing exudes sophistication quite like a tailored blazer. Whether you wear it over a dress for a sophisticated office look or a classic white shirt and jeans for a casual street style outfit, this timeless jacket can elevate any ensemble.

A well-rounded wardrobe isn’t complete without a collection of perfectly fitting denim in a range of styles. From skinny to straight-leg and boyfriend jeans, find a pair that flatters your figure to wear with everything in your closet.

4. The Little Black Dress

Timeless, elegant, and effortlessly chic, there’s a reason the little black dress is a closet staple. Made famous by Audrey Hepburn wearing a Chanel number with pearls in the film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” this versatile piece of clothing can be worn for any occasion, from date nights to formal events and everything in between.

When looking to elevate your LBD, consider choosing a silhouette that accentuates your curves for a look that’s both flattering and feminine. Whether you prefer a slim fit or a relaxed fit, there are countless options from brands like Camilyn Beth and Ganni that will suit your unique shape. You can also create a modern look by pairing your favorite LBD with a chic cashmere wrap or cape. A stylish handbag is another wardrobe non-negotiable that adds instant sophistication to any outfit.

5. Classic White Shirt

Fashion enthusiasts need to have the basics on hand to keep their wardrobes fresh and up to date. While trends and fads may come and go, certain wardrobe staples stand the test of time, elevating looks without much effort.

A crisp white shirt is a true sartorial staple, perfect for adding sophistication to casual ensembles. Whether tucked into high-waisted jeans or worn unbuttoned over lingerie, this timeless piece is a must-have in every fashionista’s closet. Look for styles with structured collars and darting or princess seaming to flatter the body. A stretchy cotton design staves off wrinkling, while a tailored fit is more flattering than a loose sack shape.

6. Cashmere Sweater

A soft cashmere sweater adds comfort and warmth to a look, while also making it feel polished and refined. A lightweight single-ply version is perfect for spring, while a heavier, thicker option will keep you warm through winter.

Look for a tailored silhouette that fits well and flatters your shape, like this style from Everlane or a twill-woven number from COS. Pair it with a fitted shirt or a blouse and jeans for a casual weekend outfit.

If you’re looking to elevate your style game, a few classic wardrobe staples can help you build a myriad of stylish looks. Whether you prefer a trendy moto jacket or a cozy gray cardigan, these wardrobe non-negotiables will never go out of style.

7. Trench Coat

In the fast-paced world of fashion, fads and trends come and go, but certain wardrobe staples are timeless and versatile enough to elevate any look.

The trench coat’s signature silhouette is instantly recognizable and has been worn by celebrities, actors and film stars around the world. Initially designed with functional details like cuff straps to tighten the coat at the wrist and gun flaps for preventing rain from seeping in through the collar, today’s trenches are available in a range of on-trend colors, including classic beige and black.

A trench coat pairs beautifully with casual and dressy outfits alike, especially when paired with a simple white tee or blouse, jeans, sneakers and a chic cap.

8. Effortless Statement Jewelry

A fashionista’s accessories play a huge role in their overall look. Having a curated collection of pieces to elevate your outfits will make you feel confident and on-trend.

Effortless jewelry like a long, layerable necklace or classic hoop earrings can take any outfit to the next level. Invest in a pair of stylish sunglasses to complete the look.

Adding a bold cocktail ring to your accessories will transform any dressy ensemble into a show-stopping look that’s sure to turn heads. Mix and match your rings to create a unique combination that reflects your personal style. Stackable rings are the perfect way to express your individuality. Choose from silver, gold, and rose gold tones for a versatile style that adapts effortlessly to any occasion.

9. Timeless Heels

Few shoes can elevate an outfit like the perfect pair of heels. Whether you prefer to show off your slender figure in a stiletto or keep it sleek with a pair of chic sandals, these timeless women’s shoes can add a touch of elegance to any outfit.

If you’re not quite ready for a bold design, opt for the classic silhouette of kitten heels to elongate your legs and instantly look refined. This style also works well with a sheath dress or skinny jeans and blouse for a feminine look.

A classic leather jacket is another wardrobe staple that never goes out of style.

10. Versatile Scarves

Although fashion is constantly changing, some wardrobe staples remain timeless and can be mixed and matched to create a variety of stylish looks. The accessories you choose can make (or break) your outfit, so it’s important to have a few versatile pieces in your closet.

One of our favourite wardrobe essentials is a soft, lightweight scarf, such as this luxe unisex ribbed head wrap in a waffle knit texture. It can be styled in a number of different ways, including as a neck scarf, scrunchie, or hair tie. It also comes in a range of colours and prints, from subtle neutrals to vibrant hues.
