Have you ever walked into your closet and realize you have a lot of clothes but really nothing to wear? Or you have some cardigans and no layering pieces? That was me!! So, I have come up with some basic pieces to take your wardrobe to next level or at least give you a starting point. From the classic white button up and a versatile black cardigan to dark denim jeans, here are a few the basic items start with!

Part 2 of the Basic Wardrobe series will include dresses and shoes.
