8 Basics You Need To Spice Up Your Wardrobe

Ever get that feeling when you have nothing that you want to wear? Spare yourself from pre-outfit anxiety with these tips to spice up your wardrobe!

Ever get that feeling when you have a full wardrobe but just have nothing that you want to wear? Spare yourself from pre-outfit anxiety with a few go-to basics that will always work with every piece that you already have and will spice up your wardrobe. Basics are reliable, timeless and never go out of style, and investing in some good quality pieces will change the way you approach your wardrobe forever. You can thank me later.

1. Crisp White Shirt

The most common wardrobe essential, there’s a reason that a crisp white shirt is as popular as it is. Whether you prefer a white blouse or a white t-shirt, there’s bound to be one perfect for you. You can also choose from a crisp white shade, a vintage-inspired off-white, or a modern graphic tee. It’s completely up to you! Pair it with a leather jacket, denim jacket, blazer or wear it under a sweater, there’s no excuse not to buy a crisp white shirt.

2. Dark Wash Skinny Jeans

Nothing is more flattering than a pair of dark wash skinny jeans. Making your legs look longer and thinner, jeans are versatile enough to look good with every outfit you can think of. Dark wash denim is perfect to transition your outfit from day to night, so you don’t have to think twice when you get ready. If you’re not into super-skinny jeans, try a straight cut or tapered pair of jeans to achieve the same look.


3. Pointed-Toe Heels

A pair of heels are an absolute essential for every wardrobe. Perfect for work or leisure, day or night, casual or formal outfits, a pair of pointed-toe heels will always have your back. The point of a pointed-toe is to help make your legs look longer, as well as making your outfit look effortlessly chic. If you’re worried about comfort, opt for a thicker heel, or maybe a shorter heel. It’s up to you, you won’t sacrifice any style!

4. Denim Jacket

Upgrade your everyday outfits with a denim jacket. Throw it over a graphic tee, floral dress or button-up to add some extra warmth and attitude to your look. Go for a fur-lined jacket for the colder months, or just a plain denim jacket for summer. If you’re really feeling creative, spice up your denim jacket with a few patches and pins. What’s better than a jacket that’s completely personalised to you?

5. Knit Sweater

There’s nothing better than feeling way too comfortable in your outfit, while still looking fashionable. Pairing a cute knit sweater with jeans, shorts or even a knee-length skirt is perfect to add warmth and comfort to your look. Go for a bold pattern if you want to stand out, or opt for a neutral colour if you want it to go with any outfit in your wardrobe. Perfect for those cooler days, a knit sweater will always be there when you need it.

6. Leather Motorcycle Jacket

Whilst on the edgier side, a leather motorcycle jacket will always add attitude to your outfits. The most common way to style a leather jacket is with a white t-shirt and jeans, but don’t worry, a leather jacket goes with everything. A summer dress, high waisted pants or a graphic tee, the possibilities are endless! Even if you’re vegan or prefer ethical fashion, there are now so many different faux leather motorcycle jackets available.

7. Patterned Button Up

Don’t let the word ‘patterned’ scare you. Just because it’s a bit on the bolder side, doesn’t mean that it’s not deserving to be called a basic. You’ll be surprised at how many different ways a patterned button-up will go with everything you already have in your wardrobe. A patterned button-up will add some flair to your everyday outfits, and will be perfect for any night out. Find a pattern that’s right for you and you’re good to go!


8. Bold Blazer

When introducing basics to spice up your wardrobe, layering is your friend. Pairing a bold blazer with a simple tee will make your outfits look effortlessly chic. Whether you decide on something that’s modern and sleek or vintage and brightly coloured, a blazer will make any outfit work-ready. If you can find matching trousers, why not try your hand at a bold pantsuit look?
