5 Things Every Girl NEEDS In Her Closet...

1. White V-Neck

Unisex Fine Jersey Short Sleeve V-Neck, $19, American Apparel

Every girl needs one of these. Sure, they're simple, but in a good way! I'm a fan of the American Apparel ones; I have 'em in dark blue, white, gray, and purple. You can also find more generic looking ones at Victoria's Secret PINK, Target, and Walmart. I just love the AA ones because they're sooooo soft, tuck-in-able, and give off that awesome "yeah, that's right, I roll out of bed lookin' like THIS!" look.

2. Leggings & Tights

H81 Ankle Knit Leggings in Black, $4.90, Forever 21

Opaque Tights in Purple, $5.80, Forever 21

Here's the deal on leggings and tights: necessary. What I adore about leggings and tights is that they feel dressier than jeans with a cute top, but can be really laid-back with a simple cotton dress. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the H&M leggings and tights because they're great quality, super cheap, and durable and warm. Just make sure to wear a thong with 'em, otherwise you'll end up with the dreaded VPL!!!! (visible panty line)

3. Black Ballet Flats

Mossimo Supply Co. O'dell Ballet Flats in Black, $12.99, Target

There's not really much to say about ballet flats other than versatile x a mil! Rock 'em with jeans, leggings, tights, skirts, shorts, dresses; THEY MATCH ALMOST ANYTHING!! Target, H&M, and Nordstrom BP are fab places to get these for pretty cheap. Get plain black to wear with other busy pieces, patent to be a little bold, or try colored or metallic flats to stand out!

4. Mock Two-Piece Dress

BP Velvet Torch 2-Piece Dress, $31.90, Nordstrom

BP Ruby Rox Scoop Neck Mock Two Piece Dress, $48, Nordstrom

BP Velvet Torch Tank Dress, $29.90, Nordstrom

Fab. Easy. Comfy. Cute. 'Nuff said.

5. Printed Skirt

BP Mimi Chica Cotton Challis Miniskirt, $24, Nordstrom

Printed skirts dress up a plain t-shirt (see #1), look summer-y with sandals, or autumn-y with tights (see #2). Great transition piece into fall from summer.
