Let’s face it none of us know how long this quarantine will last, but a closet with a reliable foundation of clothes will make it easier for you to maintain your look at home [not to mention, help you get back up to speed once the corona virus has passed]. If you don’t know where to begin when it comes to building up the “essentials” section of your closet, the pieces below should serve as an excellent primer.
- Matching Sweatsuit
Matching sweatsuits were doing the rounds before social distancing, and while baggy and comfy are still key. As for now, keep adding them to your cart as your perfect streetwear- ready when things are back to normal. Until then, they’re perfect for lounging, sleeping, or tuning into a Netflix Party.
- The Versatile Layer
Everyone owns a T-shirt they love by now-but nothing beats the cool factor of a tank top. In addition to being a solid base layer, today’s tank tops have asymmetrical necklines and ultra-thin straps that are meant to be shown off. Whether you style it with a pair of high-waist jeans or a pair of baggy sweatpants, no closet is complete without one.
- Animal Print
On days when you feel like you have nothing to wear, you can still depend on a strong print to get you out the door [even if you’re just going to the shop]. Leopard is already considered a neutral and over the past few seasons, snakeskin has proven equally versatile. The print looks great in any shade and style with the most basic of trends to the most extreme.
- Combat Boot
There’s a reason why everyone from Bella Hadid to Olivia loves Chunky lace-up boots. Take a hint of their style and add this to your wardrobe. Use the boots to add an edge to your jeans. Transition that same pair over to warm-weather dresses. Your outfit [and feet!] will thank you.
- Street Leggings
What do Kendall Jenner, Katie Holmes, and J.Lo all have in common? They each have a trusty pair of black leggings to fall back on, whether it’s for working out, working from home, or styling with a spring jacket while running to the grocery store.
