Consider this a jumping-off point for finding what’s right for your wardrobe. As for what counts as a basic, the blogger behind AfterDrk listed out these helpful guidelines:
A basic is something that…
I can wear this over and over and over again until it falls apart.
Goes with everything I already own.
I pretty much can’t live without it.
Is the glue that helps me keep the rest of my wardrobe together.
Is made of a good material that will last for a very long time.
Our suggestions are below, but, of course, these will be personal to every girl. Don’t like tees? Then stock up on more shirts. Hate flats? Don’t worry; just opt for understated heels and you’ll get plenty of wear out of them.
