Is your closet starting to overflow with unused clothes? Or are you looking to give your style a little revamp? If you said yes to both, then it's time to declutter your closet! 

Let's face it, you don't really need a dozen pair of culottes or bardot tops, right? Believe it or not, having a "simple and basic" wardrobe will inspire you more when it comes to putting together outfits for the week because they're the foundations of every look -- allowing you to style classic pieces and make them look trendy. 

So to find out which pieces you need in your closet to perfect your new and effortless style, keep reading below!


Loose shirt

A loose shirt is actually more stylish than an ordinary T-shirt -- its unstructured yet sexy because of it’s flowy material. Put a leather or denim jacket over it for that effortlessly trendy finish, and strut your way out! 



Who doesn’t love denim? Choose a pair of jeans that best complement your body shape and those that would make your legs look longer and leaner, and you'll have a no-fail partner for all your tops every day. 



A dress is literally a 2-minute outfit since its design requires minimal styling. So make sure you have a go-to dress that makes you feel gorgeous, and can take you from casual and fun get togethers to glamorous and dazzling nights out. 


Structured top

A boxy top instantly adds style to any of your outfits because it adds structure and dimension. Whether you wear it with jeans, skirts, or shorts, you will always look fashionable wherever you go.



A blazer, leather jacket, cardigan, denim jacket, bomber jacket, or any layering jacket that fits your personal style is a must in your closet. Aside from keeping you warm during the colder months, jackets give every outfit they're paired with a little 'oomph' for that edgy finish.


Felted hat

A felted hat can instantly create a high fashion look and make heads turn. Just remember to go for one with a minimal design instead of a bold one; you want your hat to complement your outfit, not overpower it!



Instead of going for uncomfortable heels that will pinch your feet, choose a rad pair of kicks or elegant loafers to save you through any fashion emergency. Because why sacrifice comfort for style when you can have both?


Tote bag

Every girl needs a wonder bag that can fit all her essentials in. Which is why tote bags are a must-have! Not only are they very handy in all occasions, but they're sturdy enough for every day use.


Bold sunglasses

Invest in a good pair of sunglasses that you can use anywhere and everywhere to protect your eyes from the heat and look dashing at the same time.



Thanks to fashion icon Audrey Hepburn, a striped top has become a wardrobe staple. Because of its sophisticated nautical vibe, this top is perfect for any season as its structure allows it to still look elegant wherever, whenever.
