Neutral staples connect different prints, colors, textures and patterns to create an endless combination of outfits. They are the basic garments that help in bringing different outfits together, so you do not have to worry about what to wear.

When shopping for neutral staples, it is essential that you only buy stuff of the best quality you can afford. These are the garments which stay in your wardrobe for 5 to 10 years, while all other outfits keep on changing. That is why we recommend that you spend good amount of money and be at ease for the next many years.

While trends keep on changing here are some 5 basic neutral staples that will last a lifetime. Once you add these 5 staple clothes in your wardrobe, you’ll be thanking us for the rest of your life.

1. A White Tee

A white tee is versatile, cool and something that can be worn on any day of the year. It is the most basic clothing staple that every woman should own. You can either have a plain one, textured or even both. You can wear them alone or layer them with sweaters, cardigans or jackets.

There are days when you wake up and feel like going with a minimalistic style. That is where a white tee proves itself to be most useful. They are the best when it comes to pairing; as white color goes with anything and never makes your style look overstated.

Pair them up with printed skirts or shorts, and colored denims to make your look funkier or fun. For warm seasons go for a short sleeve white tee and for winters go for long sleeves. Add some accessories to make it a perfect outfit for lunches or night outs. All celebrities own one of these in their wardrobe. You must have at least once spotted them wearing one.

 2. A Black Dress

A black dress is a must-have staple in your wardrobe. It works for so many different events – from parties to funerals – it is really an essential need. A woman who knows fashion, would always have a little black dress in her closet.

When it comes to buying a black dress, there are so many options out there. You can choose a high neckline with modest length for formal occasions like a job interview or a funeral. Go for a classic black without any cut outs. The key for finding the best dress is picking up the one which fits your silhouette perfectly.

A dress with improper fitting makes the entire look disastrous. Your dress should always fit in all the right places, but this doesn’t mean you get one which is too tight to even breathe in. Go for a plunging neckline with slit at the bottom if you want all eyes over you. A little black dress can do wonders for you.

There are a variety of black dresses so you must have one that will make you look painlessly fashionable. You can pair your black dress with jackets or coats, and you can also layer them over blouses.

 3.     Perfect Navy Blue Jeans

A woman’s wardrobe is incomplete without a good pair of navy blue jeans. They can be cropped, skinny, flared or boot cut. The idea is to always have one in your wardrobe.

Jeans are the most casual form of clothing, and we completely agree to that. It is the most comfortable attire and best for those causal weekend hangouts. But if you pair it up with a jacket, or a silk shirt, with high heels, you are dressed for a night at the club, bar, or a date.

Although it can be any denim jeans, but we emphasize on Navy blue because it’s a neutral color which matches up with almost everything, so you don’t have to waste hours thinking which shirt to pair with it because every single one would match.

Another great thing about this outfit is that it looks great on people of every shape and size. Most ladies prefer jeans which accentuates their bottom. The classic style of jeans is boot cut and straight leg. It is recommended that you always buy good quality jeans because the cheap ones will lose their shape in less than a year, and no one wants to wear jeans which is out of proportion.

4.     Beige Colored Skirt

A beige colored skirt, preferably knee-length, is a versatile option which is work friendly, casual and good enough to be worn on casual occasions – so it’s basically a staple which works for all.

You can get yourself a skirt and wear it for most casual things, but trust us when we say this, there will come a day when you will have to go for a job interview and that is when this skirt will come in handy. For a professional setting, you can pair your beige colored skirt with a neutral jacket to create a suit like outfit.

We suggest beige color because you can contrast it with all other dark or light colors. It makes you look subtle, with an understated style statement. It can be paired with any top in your wardrobe along with a matching or patterned blazer.

Pencil and A-line skirts look the best, but always go for the one you feel most comfortable in. Similar to a dress, it is important to buy a skirt which fits your silhouette perfectly. A leather material skirt is also a design which lasts forever.

5.     Camel Colored Cardigan

Choose a cardigan for your wardrobe which you can wear when in doubt – meaning, your cardigan should be of neutral tone and have minimal patterns, so you don’t have to put much thought into combining it with the rest of your look.

You can own cardigans in all colors you like, but we suggest camel color. The color looks elegant and classy and you can mix and match it with all other colors and designs. Don’t think that a cardigan is only for the winters; you can wear it on a breezy summer day or when strolling the beach at night.

On those casual outings you can pair up your cardigan with some jeans and for night outs, wear them with some good looking skirt or a dress. To keep it casual at work, wear a cardigan with a printed or neutral tank top and a skirt. For winters you can buy one made of wool or thick cashmere, which looks good with all type of jeans. For warmer days, choose it in featherweight cashmere. It is important to invest in a good fabric, as it last for years and stay the same even after several washes.
