Let’s face it there are certain fashion staples that every woman MUST have in her closet. These must-haves are interchangeable items in your closet that can be used with any or most outfits.
Every woman should have a blazer in her closet, preferably a black one. A blazer is perfect for making the most causal of outfits dressy, as well as it keeps your outfit looking chic and classic. Not to mention that blazers are also office friendly “ throw a blazer overtop a vintage tee or chiffon blouse or tank for that effortless look.

Basic tees are a fashion must-have, they are the ultimate interchangeable items. They are a simple item and very inexpensive which is always good, also when paired with the right boyfriend jean or with dark denim skinnies/jeggings over top a blazer and minimal accessories would make a great outfit for after work drinks or a shopping trip with the girls. The staple color for a basic tee is white, always be sure to pick up the white basic tee first before all other colors because a white tee would be the most interchangeable piece.
