Over time, our clothing tends to change, as we go through different interests and phases in life. Along with that, fashion trends seem to come and go all the time and naturally, we can't stay away from shopping. But even then, we often find ourselves in an all-too-familiar situation - standing in front of our full closet and complaining about how we have nothing to wear. Our closet is filled with all sorts and kinds of treasures from different periods of our lives, we probably don't even know exactly what's in it... This can make us feel hopeless, as we always go through the daily 'what to wear' dilemma. But there is a solution - stick to these five evergreen items and build your outfit from there! It's simple - you probably already own these items and you don't have to worry about them getting out of style, they've been around for a while for a reason!

1. A plain white T-shirt

A plain tee is one of those clothing items that could be worn everywhere, regardless of the occasion. You can always pair it with a black blazer and pants to create an easy outfit that's work friendly. Or you can just put it on with leggings for a casual weekend wear. Either way, a plain white tee is a good option to have, it's casual and versatile and you probably already have it in your closet and by pairing it with different necklaces, you can make it look like a different T every day!

2. Denim jeans

Jeans should be considered a staple piece in every closet, as they are comfy and they could be worn anywhere, as you can dress them up and down as you wish - and who doesn't like wearing clothes like always trendy denim jeans? they are never out of fashion and you can pair them with different prints as they themselves come in different styles and shapes like mom jeans, high-waisted jeans, distressed denim jeans, dark denim jeans, faded denim jeans and similar.

3. Little black dress

The little black dress is one of those clothing items you could have worn to your high school prom and later on to your own engagement party. It's such a staple evening wear piece, it's perfect to have in your closet for any formal occasion, as it never fails to make you look put together and you can wear it over and over again by pairing it with different accessories.

4. Flats


Sometimes it's hard to balance shoes between staying stylish and staying comfortable, but there is a way to get the best of both worlds. Ballet flats are the perfect shoes, you can find them in literally any style and design for every occasion.

5. Prints

Some prints never go out of style, despite of how out there you think they are. For example, animal prints like leopard and zebra are oh-so-stylish. You probably have a blouse or leopard printed jeans you swore you'd never wear again - but worry not, you can still wear them regardless if you're 18 or not. Animal prints are a timeless classic, just make sure you pair them with something plain and neutral, so you don’t look like you’re coming from the jungle!

It's normal to have day-to-day dilemmas on what to wear, but we often forget about half of the clothing items in our closet. Dig through the piles of clothes and you'd be surprised in what you'll find. That's a great way to save money and reduce throwing away perfectly good clothes. It's safe to say that some clothing items are just timeless, things that can be worn in any period in life, from high school to work meetings - and you'll never look bad or out of style.
