The New Year is always a great time to take a look at your closet and make sure you are getting the most wear out of your pieces. But as always, there are basic pieces that we all need to have in our closets. This is a great time to look at what you have, and see what needs updating or what you need to add. Read on for a few basics that make a great addition to your wardrobe!
Stripes are quickly becoming a basic and are wearable in any season. Try them in a dress for work, in a top and blazer for a more casual look, or as a part of a pattern. Stripes are classic and won’t be going out of style anytime soon.
Cardigans are an essential living in the cold Canadian winters. Not only are they great paired with jeans but also over dresses which can be wore all winter and then into the spring and chilly summer days as well.
Every great wardrobe also includes a few great basic tees and tanks. Black and white are essentials to have but also think about adding in shades of cream and military green. Tees and tanks come in many different styles so be sure to find one that you find comfortable.
A great fitting pair of jeans can be hard to find but don’t stop searching until you find the perfect pair. With so many styles and washes you can choose a look that is perfect for you! A dark wash is great for casual Friday at the office, or for a more laid back look try a boyfriend style or a lighter wash jean.

Sweaters are a cozy basic that when purchased in a neutral colour can easily be dressed up with a scarf or necklace. As well our cold winters require a great basic hat and scarf. Blanket scarves are quickly becoming a closet staple. These scarves are not only great for their warmth but their versatility since they can be worn so many different ways.
Shoes are also a key part of any wardrobe. Boots and heels are a small part of the shoe family but a great pair of each is required. Why not consider a boot in black or cognac, as well as a great heel in black or a fun solid colour like burgundy.
