1. (The fashionista item of the Century) The little black dress: Are we starting off a little bit cliché or is it just the fact that it just so obvious it has to be number 1? It was predetermined by Coco Chanel herself that every woman will need this in her wardrobe and it’s true. The perk about being a fashionista, is like being every woman, except you were blessed with a killer sense of style, so don’t be afraid to dress it up or down, it’s suitable for every occasion.

2. (Not Your) Boyfriend Jeans: It has gotten to a point where it is almost taboo for not having a pair of boyfriend jeans in your closet. Boyfriend jeans are that finishing piece for any grungy or casual look. Whether you’re channeling your inner boy or you want to do a casual downtown chic look dressing up the boyfriend jeans with a stunning pair of heels, it’s a necessity.

3. (The Perfect)  Leather Jacket: No, you don’t need to own a motorcycle to rock a leather jacket: similar to boyfriend jeans, a leather jacket is a must, and for all you animal lovers out there, faux leather works just as well. Whether it be a biker jacket or just a simple leather jacket with a little less detail, it works.

4. (The Classic Pump)  Black/nude pumps: Notice how the color is specified, black and nude can go with ANYTHING. It’s the perfect way to polish off a conservative outfit or to tone down an outfit that’s is a little over the top. They provide balance to your wardrobe.
