Five Things Every Girl Needs in her Closet

It’s Fashion Week, which means we’re on the hunt for the next big trends. But ya can’t forget about the basics. Here are the five things that should be in every chica’s wardrobe.
Whether you’re a fierce fashionista or a laidback lady, these are GL’s style musts.

1. A Pair of Jeans that Fit Perfectly
Sure, shopping for jeans can be tough. But every girl needs a pair that makes her feel absolutely amazing. A boot-cut pair in dark blue should do the trick! Bring on the compliments.
2. A Black Dress…in a Totally Modern Cut
An LBD is classic. A bubble hem with a li’l lace make this one slammin’, not stuffy. Dress it up with leopard booties or go casual with colorful flats and some bangles. A faux fur shrug and tights make it fall-ready. Gorgeous!

3. A V-Neck Tee
Sure, t-shirts are simple but ya can’t live without ‘em. A v-neck in gunmetal gray has that cool-kid vibe, and works with just about everything. Wear it with a tiered skirt and oxford pumps or bright skinnies and Chucks. Plus, it’s the perfect topper to all your fave leggings. It’s a no-brainer.
Women’s V-neck Tees, $13,
4. A Signature Accessory
Wanna be a style standout? Wearing one bold piece (practically all the time) ups your fashion cred. Haul a bright bag, stack on the bangles or rock edgy pyramid earrings. It’ll make any outfit scream Y-O-U.

5. A Pair of Fabulous Flats
We crave heels as much as the next girl, but bold flats are just as much punch and are way more practical. Find some with bows or ruffles and drenched in your fave hue. Talk about pretty and polished.
