Every closet needs those timeless pieces to help dress up and dress down any outfit. While everyone’s fashion taste is a little different, wardrobe essentials can go with any style, from boho looks, to romantic looks, and even grunge looks. Here are some of our top closet essentials and how to style them.

White or Black Basic Tee

Floral patterns, geometric patterns, and animal prints are very on-trend right now, but you will want something solid or neutral to pair with all of these options. Purchasing a good quality white or black basic tee can make any skirt, pant, or romper stand out.

Denim Jacket

Do you have a dress or outfit you love, but feel as though it is too dressy for work or a simple outing? Use a denim jacket to make it more casual. Dark denim looks great over bright colors and light denim pairs with white or neutral colors. Purchase one with a little distressing to really showcase that worn-out look.

Pendant Necklace

A minimalist wardrobe only contains a few pieces of clothing and accessories that you can mix and match regularly. Having a pendant necklace will add both a touch of color to a plain colored blouse or dress, as well as break up busy or loud patterns. We recommend having a gold necklace for warmer tones and a silver necklace for colder tones.


Black Dress

Often times we have a wedding, funeral, office party, or function to attend, but nothing to wear to said event. Keeping a little black dress in your fashion arsenal will make dressing for those occasions much easier. If you are going to a wedding, wear the dress with a pair of pumps for an elegant look. If you are going to a friend’s party, wear the dress with a moto jacket for a sleek look. Your options are truly endless with a little black dress.

Neutral Pumps or Wedges

No closet is complete without a brown, black, or white pair of pumps or wedges. Do you have a job interview? Throw on a pointed toe black pump to go with your tailored suit. Bought a new dress or jumpsuit for church service? Add a two-inch wedge for a bit of height. Instead of letting shoes be the last thing you think about, let it be the first.

There are several other basic essentials your closet needs, but if you start with these five things, you can build around them. Blush Ivey is fully stocked with denim, tees, shoes, and accessories help guide your style journey. Visit the store today and start shopping!
