    32 Clothing Items That Are Ridiculously Easy To Style

    Because we aren't all blessed with Cher's Clueless closet. 😔

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A striped chunky cardigan you can throw on over jeans, wide-leg trousers, or a solid midi skirt. If you need any outfit inspo, a quick look through Harry Styles' fashion archive should also help.

    2. A faux leather jacket that, as Justin Theroux has taught me, can be worn with your choice of black jeans, black tees, and black boots. Or, you know, whatever else you usually wear.

    3. A one-and-done twill jumpsuit with a self-tie belt and legs you can cuff to show off your coolest kicks. (Just imagine it with high-top Nike Blazers 😍).

    4. A satin slip dress you can layer over a graphic tee, under a leather jacket or chunky sweater, or just wear on its own for a Carrie Bradshaw moment.

    5. A matching ruched top and skirt you won't even have to think twice about because literally all you have to add is shoes. (If that has you scratching your head, I think a low block heel would look phenom.)

    6. Or a two-piece sweatsuit ideal both for lounging around the house and making your weekly Target/TJ Maxx/World Market run.

    7. A pair of button-fly black pants with a super high waist that pairs *perfectly* with crop tops, slinky tanks, and open-front cardigans.

    8. A metallic shirt dress that comes with an opaque slip so you don't have to worry about finding one that fits. If you've had to do that before, you know what a pain it can be.

    9. A longline wool coat you can throw on over anything and immediately look like an incognito celeb — especially if you throw sunglasses and a mask (plz!) into the mix.

    10. A faux-leather mini skirt that basically pairs with any old top in your closet. A chunky knit? ✔️ A sheer blouse? ✔️ A crisp white tee? ✔️ ✔️

    11. A hand-knit mohair cardigan with gorgeous oversized sleeves that are really the only thing people will be paying attention to. Accompanying skirt, shirt, overalls, who cares — those cozy cuffs are stealing the show!

    12. A denim Universal Standard shirt dress that calls for very little effort on your part. Basically: to roll up the sleeves or to not roll up the sleeves? That is the [only] question.

    13. A solid or striped bodysuit with a square neckline you can tuck under high-waisted pants, flowy skirts, or even joggers. This way, you won't have to tuck (and retuck) your shirt every two minutes.

    14. A neutral ribbed crop top so simple, you can zero in on a minimal aesthetic or go maximalist with your wildest accessories and shoes.

    15. A pair of patterned palazzo pants you can pull on over any tank top or tee and look perfectly pulled together.

    16. A simple graphic tee adorned with the silhouette of some very high-profile ladies like AOC, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib (aka four-sixths of The Squad).

    The white T-shirt which has the silhouette of nine women in congress

    17. A pair of trendy wide-leg trousers that I happen to wear every single day (🤫). Things I regularly wear them with: plain old tees, striped turtlenecks, knit sweaters, and lots and lots of chore coats.

    18. A fuzzy sherpa jacket ready to keep you warm no matter what you're wearing underneath. Teddy coats really don't have to adhere to any fashion "rules," and, btw, neither do you!

    19. A striped boatneck tee that's as classic as garments come. Create a timeless fit by topping it off with your go-to blazer, field jacket, or denim.

    20. A chunky oversized sweater guaranteed to keep you snug as a bug in a rug even though you're a human who usually exists in Spanx faux-leather leggings.

    21. A denim jacket that I won't even waste your time explaining. You and I both KNOW there's nothing more versatile.

    22. A button-down blouse with dramatic poet sleeves that add so much visual interest, you really don't need to do much on bottom.

    23. A flowy pleated skirt you can dress up with heels or booties or down with sneakers or sandals. Plus, it has something I refuse to shut up about: pockets. 💃

    24. A pair of Levi's Wedgie fit jeans which will show off your best ~asset~ no matter what you throw on up top. Since they come in a bunch of classic washes, you might also want to pick up multiples. 😌

    25. A ruffled swing dress that looks as good with a sunhat and sandals as it does tights and biker boots. With 33 different colors and patterns, you're sure to find a fit for every season.

    26. A casual blazer with a classic collar and lapel you can layer over a button up for an interview or over a band tee for the photo shoot you scheduled with your BFF, 'cause you need new pics for LinkedIn and your dating profile.

    27. A cozy sweater dress that, as you can see below, looks fan-freaking-tastic with thigh-high boots but can also be belted or worn with tights. (Unpopular opinion: I LOVE wearing tights.)

    28. A rib-knit skirt you can wear at your natural waist or hike up for a shorter silhouette.

    29. A neutral cropped tee that works just like any regular ol' tee but with ✨a little extra spice ✨in the form of a twist.

    30. A breezy linen top with the same effortless cool factor as your linen duvet. The slightly boxy fit features side slits you can show off with a quick French tuck.

    31. A pair of reliable black skinny jeans so easy to style, you can basically get dressed in the dark.

    32. And a lantern sleeve sweater with a loose, oversized fit that makes it both exceptionally comfy and versatile.
