The Affordable Wardrobe Essentials That Every Woman Needs

#1: The Crisp White Blouse
A white blouse is a versatile piece that you can wear any day of the year. They’re super easy to accessorise and can be worn both casually and formally. Above: Cotton blouse, $69.90, Zara What we love about this, in particular, is the button details that give the simple white shirt a point of visual interest. #2: The Little Black Dress
There really isn’t much explanation needed for this piece. As Chanel’s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld famously said,  “One is never over dressed nor underdressed with an LBD.” Above: Oh My Love polyester dress, $89.90, Topshop This dress comes in a feminine off-shoulder design that is uber body flattering. #3: The Dark Wash Denim Jeans
Dark wash denim jeans will never go out of style. Cuff them for a casual get-up or wear them straight for formal-casual look. Best part about jeans: They don’t have to be washed as often. Above: Denim jeans, $89.90, Mango The bejewelled details give the jeans a luxe touch. #4: The Simple Flat
Classic black flats are the jack-of-all-trade type of shoe, they’re super easy to slip on and comfortable enough to wear anywhere (from a party to a grocery run). Above: Faux suede loafers, $53.90, Charles & Keith We’re digging the masculine look that this pair is serving. Our favourite part? The tassels, that will give your outfit a fun swish factor.   #5: The Tailored Blazer
Best part about blazers is that there isn’t an occasion it won’t fit. Throw it over jeans and a t-shirt for a polished look, or over a mini dress to go out at night. Above: Polyester blazer, $55.90, Bershka This one from Bershka comes in a bright red hue and would make a great statement piece to add to your closet. #6: The Comfy Sweater
A cozy knit sweater will get you through cold rainy days. Above: Modal sweater, $45.90, Zara This number comes in a pretty baby blue and features a sophisticated high-neck. #7: The Pointed Pumps
Pointed-toe pumps work magic in making you look leaner and taller. Above: Polyester pumps, $49.90, Stradivarius Switch out your usual stiletto’s for this cool architectural pair.   #8: The Structured Tote
The tote is the perfect everyday bag because it’s big enough to carry all your daily necessities — and stylish. Here’s a tip: A structured bag will work better with wear and tear. Above: Faux leather tote bag, $74.95, H&M This deep burgundy one comes lined and with a total of five compartments, so you won’t have to lose your things in your bag again.   #9: The Oversized Shades
No wardrobe is complete without sunglasses. Even on a bad-outfit-day, throw on shades, and you’ll look a lot more presentable. Above: Copper sunglasses, $19.90, Bershka Candy tinted shades are super hot this season.   #10: The Graphic T-shirt
A graphic t-shirt is a great piece to wear on a casual day out. It’s both edgy and uber comfy. Above: Cotton t-shirt, $56.90, UNK x Topshop We’d pair this over a black meshed long-sleeve top for a cool editorial vibe. Like this?
