Thrift Style Thursday - Wardrobe basics

Today's Thrift Style Thursday is a pretty simple theme - wardrobe basics.  You know, those essential items that everyone should have in their closet?  I'm sure it varies from person to person as to what the basic items everyone woman needs in her style inventory.  It also was hard for me to narrow down my top choices - but here are the ones I can't live without.

First off - a good quality denim/chambray shirt.  There are so many style options with this - you can wear it over or under something, it's one of the best layering pieces around. You also can't go wrong with a white t-shirt or camisole.  This black lace skirt is becoming one of my favorites as well.  Add in some good black shoes and you've got pieces to mix and match in many different outfits - but they work really well together too!  I also included one of my favorite bags of all time - not a thrifted piece, but one by a local designer - it's one of my favorite bags simply because it seems to go with everything - if that isn't a wardrobe basic, I don't know what is!

Denim shirt - American Eagle (thrifted), Cami - Old Navy
Skirt - Wet Seal (thrifted), Shoes - Anne Klein (from cousin)
Bag - Jenna Lou Designs, Necklace - Lia Sophia

What are some of your favorite wardrobe basics that you can't live without?  Be sure to check out the other Thrift Style Thursday participants and see what they said as well!

  1. I don't think I could live without my chambray shirt either. Now I need a sleeveless version for the summer :)

    Juicy Couture Giveaway!

  2. When in doubt, I always throw on a v-neck tee and jeans. Kind of boring, but it is always comfy and classic. My problem is that I have about a million v-neck tees and even more jeans!

  3. I think a chambray is a must for me, I seem to always grab it and throw it over a t-shirt or a dress even!

  4. I love your lace skirt! I think I might need to start wearing mine again. I would say a must have for me a nice white/cream cami. You can always use those under shirts and for layering!

  5. Awh ~ thank you Bethie! I need support like that so much more than I ever realized. I just take one day at a time with that September focus out there. Yay! I love the ruffles on your purse and your lacy skirt.

  6. They are great basics. Mine include black trousers, black tops, vest tops and lots of skirts!x

  7. I can't live without chambray either...such a necessity. I love what you styled this week!

  8. Thrifted or not--a chambray button down is an absolute must! I have a few of them actually and each of them are MVPs in my closet. I wear one of them at least once a week.

  9. Great choices!! White, black and denim are a classic combination and definitely wardrobe essentials! I love the contrast of the girly lace skirt (which is darling, by the way!) and the structured chambray shirt - cute and classic!! :)

  10. Looking great lady! Love the look!


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
