Wardrobe Basics: 6 Essential Pieces You Need

Hey hey! Here to talk about wardrobe must haves : )

You know, those classic pieces that enhance almost any outfit in your closet. The staples. Absolute go-to's.

You get it.

With spring here, and summer right around the corner, I've been on the hunt for pieces I can wear on repeat. I found 6 pieces to take my wardrobe to the next level; no matter what look I'm trying to accomplish.

Let's dive in, K?


Cute & Comfy


1. Nude Bralette

I love to wear a bralette as a fun little summery crop top or you can also wear it under t-shirts to stay super comfortable! This Surplice Double Strap Bralette will have you grabbing it out of your closet time and time again. It's so incredibly soft that I also own it in white : )

Seriously, you can't beat having a perfect neutral bralette for summer. I am wearing a small for reference!

2. Extra Hi-Rise Leggings (that you can wear as pants)

Every girl needs a pair of leggings that are well-made and flattering; ones that have an amazing hi-rise and cinch your waist without squeezing it, ya know? These Coated Shaping Leggings might be my favorite pair of leggings I own. They hug everything perfectly, are amazing with all my cropped shirts / bodysuits, and the quality is INSANE. They are made from thick material.... which we all know is VERY important when it comes to leggings.

Can you say flattering, comfortable and stylish? I am wearing a small for reference!


Where Everywhere Bodysuits


3. White Long Sleeve Bodysuit

White clothes are perfect stand-out staple pieces. And literally everyone looks good in white.

This piece is something simple you can either dress up with a skirt or fitted jeans and booties OR dress down with jean shorts and sneakers.

I feel like a bodysuit connoisseur honestly with how many I own hahah and let me tell you, finding a good quality, well-fitting bodysuit is HARD. Don't worry, I did all the hard work for you and found this Long Sleeve Shaping Bodysuit. It's made of stretchy / spandex material making it extremely comfortable and breathable; but also has shaping material all through the waist and on the arms to make you look extra tight and right ; ) LOL

Also, I love the scoop neck because it makes the piece more sweet and feminine.

I 10000% am buying this in black. Also, I am wearing a M/L for reference!

4. Black T-Shirt Bodysuit

If you don't have a classic black tee in your wardrobe then what are you doing with your life?

Okay that was so dramatic, but seriously! A classic black tee is a must for any wardrobe and this Short Sleeve Shaping Bodysuit takes it to another level. With shaping material across the waist, just like the long sleeve bodysuit, it is so incredibly flattering and feels amazing!

I can't elaborate enough on the quality of this top. A flawless go-to bodysuit for every occasion.

I am wearing a M/L for reference!

Sporty & Fun


5. Black Crop Tank / Bralette

Another summery crop NEED. This longer, full coverage cross back bralette is perfect for lounging, yoga, running errands, you name it. I love wearing it with hi-rise denim shorts or under an over-sized t-shirt.

I am wearing a M/L for reference!

6. Sporty Black Leggings

These are shaping leggings just like the first ones we talked about, BUT this pair is more sporty / spandex-y and also seamless, which is so nice! I love pairing these with a black bralette for an athleisure vibe OR wearing them with a cropped sweatshirt and slides when I'm relaxing or traveling.

I am wearing a size small for reference!
