You know the ‘nothing to wear’ crisis women go through on a daily basis? The probability of that happening often will be reduced if you have this in the bag.

On second thought, the search for the solution to this crisis continues.

These items are so basic that I’m sure this is the umpteenth time you’re reading something similar. Building your wardrobe can be fun but costly therefore investing in these items much more like a house, gives you a solid foundation.


The Infamous Tee | £15


This is on the top tier of all basics. You can dress it up or down. Better plain than graphic. Graphic tees look more chic, especially paired with cut-out jeans, but in the name of basics, this works with virtually anything. You don’t want to splurge on this because they wear out easily and need replacement after a few months.

Jeans | £26


I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t have a pair of jeans in their closet. Every girl should own at least one. And you might want to add boyfriend ones to this list.

Denim shirt | £25


Sometimes a basic look like, t-shirt on leggings can be spiced up with a denim shirt worn over as a jacket. And at other times, tucked into a pencil skirt.

White shirt | £30


If you don’t have this, stop reading and go get one, now. You want to get one, preferably a long line, Or maybe an over sized one you can wear as a dress. Works in more ways than one. Just get a white shirt. You don’t know when it’ll come in handy.

Little Black Dress | £65


The infamous LBD. I have an LWD and I’m okay with that but by all means get a black one too if you need to. And you need to.

Black pointy toes | £40


This right here is the game changer. Totally transforms your outfit. It adds a very elegant and feminine touch to any outfit you have on.

Purse | £29 


Maybe black, maybe a color that stands out.

Sneakers/slip ons | £60


Whenever you quickly want to grab something from the nearest store but still want to look fab in case you run into your future hubby, just slip these on. Simple and serves its purpose.

Blazer | £54


Create an Office look, formal look or even Janelle Monae look once in a while. It dresses up every outfit you wear it over. Do well to get one that suits your body shape.

Leggings | £7.99


Comfortable!! you can find it anywhere. And you can wear it everywhere.

Red lipstick | £10


Gwen Stefani always comes to mind. Don’t you just love the sophistication that comes with it.

Statement neck-piece | £65


Maybe or maybe not but this has slowly found its way into our outfits. Its bold and causes a drastic change in look. You want to pair this with other minimal accessories, except you’re Iris Apfel then by all means “do your thang”
