Wardrobe Staples

Do you ever look into your closet and proclaim that you have nothing to wear, even though it’s full of clothes? I know I do. You may not realize it, but a major reason you feel like you can never find the right outfit could be that you’re missing some wardrobe staples. Key pieces in your wardrobe that are able to be worn interchangeably with other pieces will allow you to put together a broader range of outfits. Not everything in your wardrobe needs to be a bold print or color — sometimes keeping it simple is the way to go. Having the following staples in your wardrobe will make choosing an outfit much easier and give you some nice choices when you’re in a bind. The best part? All of them can be found in the North Dallas Corridor.


White T-Shirt

You can never go wrong with a white t-shirt. This staple item is arguably the most important because you can build any style of outfit around it. It goes with everything and will never go out of style. Also, you don’t have to break the bank to buy one.


Black Leggings

Black leggings are another article of clothing that everyone needs to have in their closet. There are multiple ways to style them, whether you’re going to workout, want to wear a casual outfit to run errands, or dress them up by wearing a nice, flowy blouse over them.



If you don’t have a few good-quality pairs of blue jeans, run, don’t walk, to the store to get some. A well-made pair of jeans will last for years, and you can create countless outfits with them. The fact that there are so many different types of jeans – skinny, bootcut, high waisted, baggy – means that you will never run out of options when it comes to building an outfit around them. Levi’s and Old Navy are two stores that sell excellent quality jeans.



Shoes are a major component of a good outfit, too. A classic pair of sneakers like these Adidas are a solid choice for everyday outfits. If you’re not one for heels, they would also look great with a casual summer dress or blue jean skirt. I have a few different pairs of Adidas sneakers and whenever I’m struggling to figure out what shoes would go with an outfit, I turn to one of them.



Dresses, trousers, jeans, jumpsuits…the pieces that can be paired with booties are endless. A pair of black booties in your closet will make getting ready on a night out so much easier. These shoes are perfect for Saturday night restaurant or bar visits.


Little Black Dress

Black dresses are simple and classic, which make them a good option for any event. Every woman should have a black dress in her closet – maybe even several.


Hoop Earrings

Finishing off a cute outfit with a pair of hoop earrings can take it from average to outstanding. There’s just something about hoop earrings that make your outfit feel complete.


Leather Jacket

A leather jacket is like the icing on the cake when it comes to wardrobe staples. It pulls together any outfit to create a cool, sleek look.
