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, plus a few recommendations of our own:
Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.
1. A chambray shirt that can act as the foundation of any fabulous outfit you have planned for the day. Pair it with a skirt, shorts, or even layer it over a T-shirt.
"I wear mine on a weekly basis. I can dress it up, keep it casual, wear it with leggings, buttoned-up, unbuttoned over a top or dress, and so on. I literally wear it all year round because of its versatility!" —samanthar4a383b0f7
Get the one above from Madewell for $69.50 (available in sizes XX-XXL).
2. A pair of Dr. Martens anyone who lives in a city would definitely benefit from owning. The thick sole stands up to years and years of stomping around sidewalks, and they look good with practically any outfit.
3. Huarache sandals to deliver a burst of colorful boho flair to your outfit. Go ahead and get one in every color — you'll love them that much!
Especially during the summer, sandals are an absolute necessity for any wardrobe, and huarache sandals are built to last even if you wear them for three months straight. The intricate leather design on the top will have people asking you where you got them, and the variety of bright colors are perfect for making a sartorial statement. Since this company only make whole sizes, they suggest sizing down if you're in between as the shoes will stretch and mold to your feet as you wear them.
Get it from MacarenaCollection on Etsy for $39.99 (available in sizes 5–10 and eight colors).
Macarena Collection is a small business based in Buena Park, California. All of the shoes are handmade by Mexican artisans
