“A 55-Year-Old-Former Nordstrom Buyer knows these 7 basic wardrobe staples work for everyone”
Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Who What Wear’s Senior Editor Bobby Schuessler on this article. I’ve been reading Who What Wear for over 10 years to get the latest in fashion trends and street style, as well as tips from some of the top editors in the business. So, you can imagine my excitement when an email appeared from Kat Collings, THE Editor-in-Chief for WWW!! It’s definitely a career highlight for me 🙂 And I’m thrilled to let you know that another article is in the works! Today I’m sharing my favorite wardrobe staples.
Since the 7 basic wardrobe staples I narrowed down for the article really do work for everyone, I thought I’d share them with you directly. I’ve also updated my picks for each category listed, so keep scrolling to read!
P.S. I’ve been working really hard on updating my Pinterest boards, and I’d love you to let me know what you think. And, if you’re new around here and want to stay up to date on all things stylish and the hot new items we ALL need, then subscribe here and never miss a post!

#1 White Shirt
“Here’s the trick to a white shirt: it needs to have a little interest to it. For example, this J.Crew popover style is a bit oversized, which makes it more appealing than your simple white shirt. No matter the twist, this classic will always be a good investment.”
Another one of my favorite staples is a simple shirt dress, featured in my recent post HERE.
#2 Straight leg jeans
#3 Denim jacket
Another one of my favorite basic wardrobe staples. “I put one of these in every dressing room, and it almost always leaves with the client! This specific Madewell version has a slightly relaxed silhouette and is a touch longer than in previous years, making it perfect to layer over your favorite blouse or sweater.”
#7 Silk cami
