Every now and then, women would look into the runways of London, New York or Paris for the latest fashion trends. Whether it’s floral or block colors for the summer or midi-skirts and metallics for the Christmas season, updating one’s closet with the latest trends is one of the joys of fashion. However, there are some wardrobe staples that will remain useful regardless of the season. Here are some of the must-have basic fashion staples or pieces that women love to have in their closets from Manila to Madrid, Tokyo to New York.
The little black dress
Once you find the cut and length that suits your body type, you’ll find it hard to fault the LBD. When you have this piece in your closet, you’ll never have to worry about dressing up for nights you want to impress.
The basic button down shirt
It’s crisp, versatile and fresh. Wear to the office paired with jewel toned-skirt and pumps, and dress down with it on weekends with stylish shorts or pants and gladiator sandals or sneakers.
