10 Neutral Basics You Need in Your Closet

Call us basic, but neutral colors and traditional silhouettes are all we turn to for our daily wardrobe. Don’t get us wrong, we love to dress up and try out new trends, but these are our closet staples. With fall on the horizon, we rounded up 10 neutral basics we will be wearing all season (and year) long. Also, we love that we can wear all the pieces together! Capsule wardrobe – check!

10 Neutral Basics You Need - Inspired by This


Knit Sweater: A pullover sweater is a must for fall! This creamy color will go with anything. Plus, it’s easy to layer and makes any outfit look instantly put together!

Plain T-Shirt: Every dresser, maybe even every dresser drawer, should contain your basic tee. White, grey, and black are musts! We particularly love this one from H&M because it’s a little longer than your average t-shirt and it’s only $9.99. One in every color, please!

Silk Cami: A silk cami is one of our favorite layering pieces this fall! The lace trim peeks out beneath a sweater (like the one above!) or jacket adding the perfect feminine flair.

Cozy Cardigan: Another item you can have multiples of is this cozy sweater. Urban Outfitters offers all the traditional neutral color ways and then some fun shades as well! Trust us, you will be living in this.


Black Leggings: Every girl knows a good pair of black leggings is a must have! This Hue pair is thick and comfy – just how we like them!

Black Skinny Jeans: When your black leggings aren’t quite professional enough, black skinny jeans ought to do the trick! Madewell is known for their denim, so these cute jeans are not only sure to fit well and comfortably but be affordable too at just $76.


Tote: A big black tote is a necessity. You’ll find yourself reaching for this Sole Society back on a regular basis and find it’s carryall size the perfect fit.

Belt: If we could put together one outfit to live in from all of these pieces it would be a plain tee tucked into skinny jeans held up with this simple black belt. You would be surprised how much difference a belt can make to any outfit. We highly recommend stocking up on both a black and tan one!

Lace Up Flats: Another favorite trend we love is lace-up shoes! These tan flats will get a lot of wear this fall, winter, and spring and summer too. Additionally, they are the perfect wear-anywhere flats.

Booties: Last, but definitely not least, you need a basic pair of ankle boots! The Sam Edelman Petty is a best seller for good reason! They are comfortable, neutral, and go with anything. But if they aren’t your style, here are some other awesome suggestions.
