    25 Wardrobe Staples You Should Consider Adding To Your Closet

    You say basic like it's a bad thing?

    We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their favorite wardrobe staples they wear again and again. Here are the stylish and reliable results:

    1. A chambray shirt you can throw on with a skirt, black jeans, or even just blue jeans (hello, Canadian Tuxedo!) to have a sophisticated outfit with minimal effort.

    2. A pair of Dr. Martens that are worth the splurge because these babies will be your go-to for years.

    3. High-waisted black jeans so versatile and comfortable you may end up saying, "Leggings? I don't know them."

    4. A silky scarf you'll want to have on hand all year round. Scarves are for more than just winter!! You'll be so thankful you have one with you on that summer night when it starts to get just a tad bit chilly.

    5. Adidas sneakers you might as well buy two pairs of so you have a backup when the first pair inevitably gets too run-down and dirty from how much you'll trek around in them.

    6. A classic black leather (or faux leather) jacket that'll add the perfect edge to any outfit.

    7. A sheath dress you can quickly throw on in the morning before heading off to make a big presentation at work. You'll look good, feel great, and be able to focus on what's really important: killing it at your job.

    8. A flannel button down you'll wear for more than just your annual trip to the pumpkin patch each fall.

    9. Some Oxford flats with a vintage look you'll feel down-right proper wearing.

    10. A pair of William Rast skinny jeans called "The Perfect Jeans" for a reason. And that reason is because they're stretchy and comfortable and look oh-so cute.

    11. A pair of Lululemon leggings worth the splurge because you'll find yourself reaching for these babies over and over and over again. (And for more than just yoga!)

    12. A patterned duster to make your regular look of jeans and a t-shirt anything but ordinary. Plus, you can use it as a coverup on your next beach vacation! We love multifunctional clothes!

    13. Converse All Stars I'm pretty sure Taylor Swift was talking to when she sang, "we never go out of style". T. Swift and Chuck Taylors will be around forever.

    14. A cardigan you should have with you at all times in the summer because offices and other buildings ALWAYS turn up the ac so high! A light sweater is a must.

    15. Some pretty pearl studs because they'll add some class to your outfit, no matter where you wear them.

    16. A pair of Birkenstocks that prove that being comfortable and cute *is* possible.

    17. An oversized denim jacket you'll be overjoyed to add to your jacket collection.

    18. Chelsea boots designed so you can walk 500 miles (and 500 more) in them.

    19. A pack of slim-cut crewneck tees because basic is not a dirty word, especially when it comes to practical shirts you can wear all the time.

    20. Vans Old Skool sneakers you'll ~flip~ over. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, try throwing these babies and seeing how they land: face up, like the true rockstars they are.

    21. A longline blazer that'll make you feel like a real boss every time you put on, even if you're just going to brunch with your friends.

    22. Some rubber flats perfect for rainy days when you don't feel like wearing rain boots. These will keep you dry. Plus, nobody will probably guess that they're Crocs!

    23. A pair of mom jeans that'll make you wonder why they ever went out of style. They're comfortable, make your butt look great, and go with everything. What's not to love?

    24. A band tee to show the world what you're currently streaming on Spotify.

    25. And a pair of Steve Madden combat boots – no matter how many times you wear them, you'll probably still get stopped on the street by people asking you where you got them.

    My reaction when someone tells me they don't own everything on this list:
