Everyone needs to add some staple pieces in their closet that can easily be styled with anything and everything. It doesn't always have to be those jeans or sweatpants that you wear every day but something fashionable that can give your outfit an instant lift.
I've a few staple pieces in my closet which come in really handy whenever I need to plan an outfit for an occasion. Without even giving it a thought, my mind automatically starts creating numerous options out of all those pieces. For days when you quickly need to pull together a look, you can effortlessly style these with anything. If you don't know where to start, take inspiration from my options to start with. Here are my current favorites at the moment:
