Frankie Bridge Has the Best "Basics" Wardrobe I've Ever Seen

Instagram has a habit of dragging you down big, all-consuming black holes of content. Personally, I always end up on new fashion brands or on the pages of influencers I've never seen before and saving their chic outfits. Throw in a meme or two and a bit of Diet Prada, and before you know it I've lost 120 minutes. And I know I'm not alone: On one of my most recent descents on the app, I rediscovered Frankie Bridge.

The former Saturdays star has just become the face of Oasis by creating a collection with them. But the thing that really caught my eye on her Instagram? Her classic style and her wardrobe full of basics that everyone needs. For starters, there are the knee-high boots and "keep forever" black jeans. Other pieces I'd definitely peg as a staple include a grey jumper, a leather jacket and a polka-dot dress (Frankie has them all). Keep scrolling to see the 10 pieces she has that I'd consider vital for a classic wardrobe.

Style Notes: A leather jacket is always a good idea, but right now, a belted version is just that much chicer than a biker. 

#5: The Polka-Dot Dress

Style Notes: Thanks to that Zara dress—not to mention various other iterations of polka-dot frocks on the high street and from designers—this dress will always have a place in our wardrobes.

#6: The Jumpsuit

Style Notes: Jumpsuits are now as important for wardrobe as a great dress. Find one in khaki or denim that suits you. Pair with leopard-print heels like Frankie.

#7: Leopard-Print Dress

Style Notes: Black boots might be a staple, but what about brown boots that are just as versatile? Frankie's option to wear hers with a red dress is so simple but chic.
