Whenever I’m scrolling through Pinterest or Instagram for outfit inspiration, there’s a constant that makes me stop on a particular image. Well, a couple of constants, if we like speaking in mathematical terms (which apparently I do). The trick to getting me to save that post or pin? A great, and I mean great, foundation piece. I love a classic look, and if you do too, then the importance of a few pared-down, buildable staples in your closet cannot be stressed enough.
Like a basic, a foundation piece is something you can rely on whenever you’re in a pinch. It’s an item you can rest assured will elevate any look, and in my opinion, they work even better when paired together. Think an oversize white button-down with some straight-leg jeans and perhaps pumps for Friday night out. (See what I mean?) So without further ado, keep scrolling to find the eight essential foundation pieces every chic closet needs below.
