If you are on Instagram you may have seen a ton of reels on weekly outfit ideas. You might have noticed that most tend to have a basic white button-down shirt. This is because a white button-down shirt is and will remain a classic.

You can dress it up with your favorite pair of jeans and heels and still dress it down with some sneakers. This piece is so versatile that you can still pair it with your favorite mini skirt and break it down at the club. 

The Plain Tee

Plain tees are a definite wardrobe must-have. A white or black tee can allow you to create so many different outfits for different styles. Wanna look casual and cute? Dress your white tee in your favorite denim jeans and some sneakers. Dressing up for a date with the girls? Team up your white tee with a slip skirt and some clear heels. 

The Perfect Jeans

We will be the first ones to admit, no one style of jeans is perfect for everyone.
Your favorite style may depend on your body type (learn how to dress your body type here). Whichever style you prefer is what you need. Invest in a good pair of jeans that will last you a long time. 

The Body Suits.


Bodysuits have become a wardrobe staple and we are not surprised. This piece is especially perfect for your workwear outfits. It’s so good we would recommend you take it in different colors but especially a white and black bodysuit.

Tank tops are great for layering beneath your work blazers, oversized shirts, and jackets. They are quick to wear and comfortable. They also come in different colors (invest in a black one first if you have to choose, then add others from there).

The Leggings
