Every fashion season brings a wave of new trends to add to our wardrobe. While it's fun to continuously update our wardrobe with every new trend that comes our way (who doesn't like shopping, right ladies?), a standard collection of wardrobe basics should always be at the ready for when we're stumped over what to wear and just need something fashionable and trendy in an instant.

Here is our selection of wardrobe basics you need to complete your wardrobe.

A good pair of jeans is a must for every wardrobe. You can dress it up with a statement top and your highest heels for a girly night out, or opt for something more casual by pairing it with sneakers and a tank top.

Pencil Skirt

If you're looking to emphasize your silhouette, you can't go wrong with a pencil skirt. You can wear it long (midi-skirt style) or keep it short (above the knees) depending on the type of mood you're going for. Either way, it's a cut that is ever flattering.

Button-Up Shirt

A button-up shirt is slowly becoming a mainstay in most of our closets due to its versatility. Pair it with a corporate attire for a standard office-ready look, or wear it casual with a pair of shorts to dress-up your weekend ensemble.

When the temperature gets too warm for jeans or a long skirt and is far too windy for a flowy mini-skirt, a pair of shorts that show of your legs is a definite closet must-have. Whether you go for a pair of denim shorts, floral shorts, or a skort, do keep this mind: there is such a thing as a too-short pair of shorts.

From tank tops to crop tops and even to the standard spaghetti strapped tops, your closet will never be complete without an array of sleeveless tops to mix-n-match with whatever outfit you've planned for the day. Just add a fitted-blazer or a cardigan for a quick cover-up when at work or school.

We've said it time and time again, a little black dress that hugs your curves in all the right places is something every woman needs in her closet. When you've been invited to a party at the last minute, what do you quickly put on? A little black dress! Got a hot-date? Oh, look! A little black dress!

Skater Skirt

by stephiielim

This is a skirt style that will always be fun, flirty, and ever-flattering for those who love their skirts short. A perfect skater skirt sits comfortably at your waist and stops mid-thigh with a slight flare. It's perfect for pairing with crop tops or a tucked-in statement t-shirt for a more casual look.

Gone are the days when blazers are just reserved for boardroom meetings or corporate life. Elevate that t-shirt and pants look with a quick addition of a well-fitted blazer and a pair of heels. Or wear it in place of a cardigan and slip it over a day-dress.
