Back to Basics: The 15 Wardrobe Staples You Shouldn't Live Without

Fact: Wardrobe staples never change. I mean, the clue is in the name, but the basic items that everyone looks good in stay consistent year after year. While I always love to buy a couple of trend-led pieces every season (statement sleeves and mules right now, if you’re asking), it’s the classic pieces I’ll never tire of.

Not only do these items work well with any new bits I’ve bought, but they also mean I never worry about what to wear in the morning. Simply put, they’re the building blocks of a perfect wardrobe. You know the ones: the jeans you wear on repeat, the leather jacket you layer over every wedding-guest dress and the black heels you wear to every meeting (to name a few). So whether you’re looking to start over or simply wish to update an old favourite, shop our picks now. Keep scrolling to see 15 of the chicest wardrobe staples.

If you own all of these items, then congratulations—you win!
