This is the most versatile item of your wardrobe. Next to jeans, this is the easiest item to pair up with almost anything. You can pair your tee with shirts, pants, tights, pajamas or even a long skirt. Any type of shoes whether you are wearing heels, sneakers or sandals, ill go with the white tee shirt.

2.    Black Dress:

Every wardrobe needs a black dress, preferably a jersey fabric one. Accessorizing a black dress is so easy, it’s effortless. Get a beautiful choker, some high heels, and you are good to go. A deep neck, modest length, sleeveless dress is just perfect for day time as well as night time outing. Switch your sandals for heels when you go clubbing.

3.    A Sophisticated Yet Stylish Blazer:

When you need a casual yet elegant look, all you need to do is wear a blazer on top of your white tee. This will work as your formal office look as well as your Sunday brunch look. Even when its chilly outside a blazer can easily work as a coat (of course when it’s not freezing).

4.    Sneakers:

The most comfortable and casual thing to wear. Whoever came up with slip-on shoes was a genius. You can walk miles and not feel a thing. There are so many options and designs that you will have a hard time to choose the perfect pair. I’d say, just pick the ones that suit most of your clothes!

5.    Black Trousers:
