11 STYLISH "BASICS" EVERY FASHION GIRL OWNS

Ask our editors what their most fundamental wardrobe staples are, and these are the types of answers you will get.
  1. 1.
    Black Moto Jacket
    A staple item for every wardrobe and #1 on this list for a reason. Worth the investment and only gets better with time.
  2. 2.
    Striped Button-Down Blouse
    Like your white button-down shirt, but a little more interesting.
  3. 3.
    Pointed-Toe Slides
    The perfect blend of comfort, polish, and cool.
  4. 4.
    Mom Jeans
    We’re partial to vintage Levi’s 501 jeans, especially the ones from Re/Done.
  5. 5.
    Mini Bag
    The puppy version of a purse.
  6. 6.
    Lace-Up Heels
    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. 7.
    Reformation Dress
    Minimalist and oh-so-cool. Bonus points for being environmentally-friendly!
  8. 8.
    Graphic Tees
    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. 9.
    Dainty Rings
    If you've ever been on Instagram or Pinterest, you know this to be true.
  10. 10.
    Denim Jacket
    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. 11.
    Round Sunglasses
    Androgynous, timeless, and a little less predictable than oversized shades.
