Ask our editors what their most fundamental wardrobe staples are, and these are the types of answers you will get.
  1. Black Moto Jacket
    16b89829 9268 4358 bdb0 9c8a77d7f398
    A staple item for every wardrobe and #1 on this list for a reason. Worth the investment and only gets better with time.
  2. Striped Button-Down Blouse
    Bed08648 52ef 4ce7 a62c 37a6bbceb3b2
    Like your white button-down shirt, but a little more interesting.
  3. Pointed-Toe Slides
    249ed9d8 c44a 4ab7 8676 1034fbfa34b5
    The perfect blend of comfort, polish, and cool.
  4. Mom Jeans
    1848b328 2c33 4f06 a98a 484641e4a3e1
    We’re partial to vintage Levi’s 501 jeans, especially the ones from Re/Done.
  5. Mini Bag
    82d87dbb 1270 4989 9f27 749cc357f915
    The puppy version of a purse.
  6. Lace-Up Heels
    94212675 099d 4941 97b9 a48b03d30829
    These are the shoes that make you want to say "ooh la la." They go just as well with a party frock as they do a pair of jeans.
  7. Reformation Dress
    7444d9ee 5df7 45e4 ae11 de6dc979863a
    Minimalist and oh-so-cool. Bonus points for being environmentally-friendly!
  8. Graphic Tees
    3fed0963 866a 4f04 8718 4cd5bd3f8a23
    Introduce a graphic tee to any "traditional" outfit formula (such as a blazer paired with a skirt and heels) for an instantly more stylish and sporty look.
  9. Dainty Rings
    Dde67796 b37d 4af2 ac56 f344d653620c
    If you've ever been on Instagram or Pinterest, you know this to be true.
  10. Denim Jacket
    90acaedb 639a 4295 812e 10f6e53e4647
    Perhaps the most versatile piece of outerwear of all time. Drape it, later it, cuff it, roll it: There are endless ways to style one of these, and you can probably steal one from the brother/father/boyfriend/pal in your life or score a great one at a thrift store on the cheap.
  11. Round Sunglasses
    018b30d7 8335 4451 b1cc d0c17a1a8df6
    Androgynous, timeless, and a little less predictable than oversized shades.
