7 Closet Essentials Every Wardrobe Needs

Stop saying "I have nothing to wear" and add these 7 closet essentials to your wardrobe for endless possibilities each season.

While we love a good trend, investing in the must-have basics means you'll multiply your outfit options without breaking the bank and reduce your carbon footprint on the environment. 

A black blazer.

A traditional black blazer never goes out of style and in fact, is more in style right now than ever. We love pairing a blazer with a pair of distressed jeans and sneakers for a more casual look or over a slip dress for date night. Or with a bra-crop for a complete statement ensemble.

A tailored jogger. 

A good jogger will never go out of style especially with a dress pant influence. If you can legally drink and are going to wear sweats in public, they need to be tailored. These soft-as-ever cotton joggers have a raw-edge detail and cinched ankles to complete a comfortable, yet polished look. Click here to shop.

A neutral trench. 

Elevate any outfit by throwing on a good neutral trench coat. This Belted Ladies Trench comes in both sand and olive (pictured below) and is equally comfortable as it is structured. Click here to shop.

A wide-leg trouser. 

While we love a good, vibrant trouser, opting for a neutral colour and pattern (checked, plaid, pinstripe) means you will be able to wear them for many seasons to come. Click here to shop.

A black dress.

You didn't think we'd go through a list of wardrobe essentials without saying "a little, black dress" did you? While you may already know this basic, we suggest looking for a couple things when finding the perfect option for your closet. Look for classic shapes and cuts that will not go out of style. The simpler the design, the better you'll be able to style your black dress to suit any season or trend. Layer a blazer on top for a work look or throw on a turtleneck underneath for a cozy winter ensemble. Click here to shop. 

Basic camis.

The perfect base layer for any outfit, basic camis in your closet should be neutral, form-fitting and high quality. This will be one of your most worn pieces in your whole closet, so invest in durable fabrics. The Raw Fashion V-neck Racerback Cami comes in black, off-white and sandstone. Shop now.

A slip dress.

A good slip dress never goes out of style. Have fun with a statement pattern or keep it simple with a solid. At least one slip dress in your closet means you'll never have to do that last-minute, wedding guest shop again. Click here to shop.
