Basics. You’ve heard the term thrown around or noticed a section of your favorite store dedicated to these essentials. If you haven’t explored this wonderful world yet it’s definitely worth a look. From tees and tanks to tube and pencil skirts, you’ll be able to create look after look with the must-have pieces known as “basics”. The best way to describe a basic piece is, they are the building blocks of your wardrobe. Trends may come and go and your closet has probably seen it all, but they are the loyal friends who always stick around.

So where can one go if they’re on the hunt for some timeless closet favorites?

* Old Navy

Definitely fair on prices and almost always has a sale, I consider this store the go-to basics stop.

* Forever 21

With a large basics section of its own, Forever 21 is another gem to keep in mind.

* American Apparel

Don’t be intimidated by the prices, you’ll definitely know where your extra $$ went when you wear their cotton-based basics and feel good about their sweatshop-free policy.

So now you have your sources, but what should you be looking for?

1. The Plain White Tee

From scoop neck to v-neck, long sleeved or short, the plain white tee is one of the most well-known basics and easiest to incorporate. Look for a relaxed fit made of soft and durable materials. V-neck styles add a little touch of sexiness and are great for adding your favorite necklaces.

Basics - tee

2. Classic denim

Everybody has their favorite pair of jeans! I find the skinny or straight leg styles are a timeless trend and are super versatile as they can be worn around the house or jazzed up with some pumps or boots for a night on the town. Go for a darker style denim or even try colored denim!

3. Pencil Skirt

These chic skirts aren’t just for the office! You can wear it with a white silk blouse for a classic look or experiment with tanks, tees or even sweaters to make it your own.

4. Tank tops

Whether you’re heading to the gym, lounging or layering, tank tops are a key piece to have in your closet. Also, keep an eye out and you’ll most likely be able to find a great deal so you can stock up!

5. Black Leggings

Another super versatile piece. Can be worn under tunics, with your favorite tee and soft cardigan, played up with leather boots.. the possibilities are endless and not to mention comfortable! To spice up your night-look, try your favorite styles in sleek leather!

Basics - tights

6. The LBD

Another timeless classic, the little black dress! In every style imaginable, the little black dress can be sexy, cute, chic and looks great on its own or even better worn with your favorite accessories.
