Every girl has her go-to outfit that makes her feel amazing. Maybe it’s a rockin’ mini dress, or perhaps it’s a killer pair of jeans and a fun top. Regardless, there are four staples that every girl should have in her closet that can work for so many different incredible outfits. Vintage clothes never go out of style, so don’t be afraid to browse your local vintage shops to find these four essential components of your wardrobe.

#1: The white button-down shirt

This classic fashion piece is crisp, simple, and clean looking. There is very little you CAN’T wear with a white button-down shirt. Wear it with jeans, slacks, skirts, sweaters, vests, a contour dress, or some combination of those things. Dress it up with some flashy accessories or keep things simple with more neutral colors. Trust me; you never know when you might need a white dress shirt.

#2: The little black dress

Yep, this is an essential for a classy cocktail party or a crazy night out. A simple but stylish black cocktail dress will never go out of fashion and will always be put to good use. Pair it with stockings and a blazer to wear to the office, add a bold belt and some fun chunky jewelry to wear to the club, or wear it on its own for an upscale event.

#3: The classic cardigan

Cardigans aren’t just for schoolteachers any more. They come in every size, pattern, and color imaginable and have enough fit options to flatter any body type. Button a solid colored cardigan over a print blouse for a fun take on a conservative fashion. You can even find one without buttons and belt it over a mini-skirt and camisole. The possibilities are endless!

#4: The perfect boots

This is a great staple because of how many different colors and styles you have to choose from. A neutral boot never goes out of style and pairs so well with all kinds of outfits from casual to dressy. Whether you wear more blacks, browns, tans, or grays with a flat heel or a sassy stiletto, that perfect pair of boots is essential to a complete style wardrobe.

So there you have it: four things that every girl should have in her wardrobe collection. You can find any of these things at a regular department store, but shopping for vintage clothes can be an adventure in itself. Check out some secondhand shops in your area—you never know what fashion treasures you might find to create a unique but classic look.
