You know how it is. It’s an idle Tuesday evening, you’re browsing through social media, you see your favorite fashionista (not necessarily me but bonus points for you if it is) wearing some gorgeous wardrobe staples, and you suddenly realize you don’t have any of your own.
The panic sets in, “Susan, cancel all my morning appointments, tomorrow”. Fling open the laptop to your search engine of choice, smash the keys for Wardrobe Staples 2022, and begin a 5 hour deep dive into various brands and designs, desperately looking for pieces that are not only within your budget but ones that will last. Physically and Fashionably.
Then again maybe you’re just keeping on top of your style game and looking for some core piece to add to your collection. So rather than working hard and scouring the vast archives of the world wide web, you choose to work smart and find the person you know has already done that hard work for you (this time it is me). Congratulations, you are in the right place. Now let’s check out the timeless wardrobe staples you’ve been looking for.
By adding them to your closet, you’ll be able to level up your look and create limitless outfit combinations. Well, maybe not hundreds of thousands, but still a lot more than you’ll be able to think of with that slim fit velvet green dress you bought 6 years ago and worn once.
8 Wardrobe Staples That Never Go Out Of Style:
1. Cropped Gold Button Cardigan
The second season of ‘Emily in Paris’ is coming to Netflix soon and no matter if you love it or hate it, you can’t disagree that Parisians DO know how to dress. In case you feel the temptation beforehand, add this beautifully cropped gold button cardigan to your wardrobe. Like any French-girl wardrobe, it’s simple and timeless. Who said style had to be a lot of effort? Certainly not me.
It has contrasting accents, gold-toned traces, and nautical buttons. Its best feature though is that you can wear it with so many things. The absolute go-to look includes black boots, black pants, black trousers, and a nice beret. If you are on the streets of Paris during Fashion Week, wearing this fit, everyone would agree that you are très chic.

2. Beige Belted Coat
Trust me, I could totally understand your ever-lasting passion and love for camel coats because I’m on the same train too. But adding a good beige one to your wardrobe is a MUST! Katie Holmes has brought them back to life last year, Kaia Gerber wears them all the time, so no excuses needed.
This model is designed in Stockholm and made mostly of recycled wool. The six concealed button closures, duo side seam pockets, and a large belt are great details, especially the latter. Picture this: it’s freezing cold outside, you tie your coat and feel the warmest hug you’ve ever been given. Finishing touches: black sweater, black boots and maybe black-but- also-brown bag.

3. Gold Button Tweed Jacket
Tweed has been an irreplaceable part of Chanel’s signature looks for the last few years, and you most likely know that, even if you don’t follow the latest fashion trends. Maybe that’s why I’m obsessed with this textured wool tweed jacket. These are the kinds of designer wardrobe staples that are essential when one’s outfits must always be on point.
Traced with gold-toned button closures at the front and at the cuffs, it’s like wearing both a jacket and an accessory. Try pairing it with ankle chunky boots, a pair of black leather leggings, and perhaps a timeless small bag, just to finish it off. Wardrobe essentials at their finest.

4. Oversized Blazer
If you’re a consistent STYLE BY SAVINA reader, you know that I talk a lot about the & Other Stories blazers. I’m convinced that they are everything a girl needs when it comes to classic wardrobe essentials for your forever wardrobe.
I’m not the most avid Black Friday enthusiast but I managed to get my hands on this blazer and whatever I say, it just wouldn’t do this piece justice. The fit is incredible, and it looks (and feels) so expensive.
You can wear it with high-waist jeans for those dark days you have to go to the office during the winter mornings, only to find out it was another one of those meetings that could have just been an email. Or you combine it with a black coat, classic sunglasses, and high boots. You know, for a date night out on the town.

5. Vintage Light Wash 90s Jeans
The 90’s already have special place in our hearts and always will. It’s the decade of pivotal changes and supermodels running the fashion industry, showing us what’s hot and what’s not. Remember flicking through magazines and admiring the clothes and fashion shoots. Back before the days of the internet, which feels like a century ago!
This vintage Everlane model certainly is fire. Made from 100% cotton, these jeans are a good choice if you are looking for classy wardrobe staple pieces, and care about the planet at the same time. Their denim factory partner uses renewable energy and air drying to reduce polluting emissions. In terms of styling, just go back to look 2 and switch the leggings with our main character here. Kendall Jenner would be so proud.

6. V-Cut Cable Knit Sweater
Asking for effortlessly chic closet essentials? Then look no further than this V-cut merino wool sweater with a cable knit finish and contrasting stripes.
It’s a soft, warm, and stylish example of exceptional minimalist wardrobe staples. Finish the look with a white shirt, white shoes, and your favorite bag. Who knew it was that easy? I did. That’s why I’m here for you.

7. Classy Flared Trousers
Do you have a wardrobe staples checklist? If the answer is yes, make sure you tick off a pair of classy flared trousers. Their high-waist silhouette is pure perfection.
This & Other Stories’ piece has duo patch pockets at the front and at the back and is also certified according to the Responsible Wool Standard.
While I say style options are countless, here you have at least 5. Add a brown turtleneck sweater or a classic white shirt and a big designer tote bag. You’ll have a great outfit and a real-life example of love at first sight.

8. Black Faux Leather Leggings
Talking about wardrobe staples for your 20s, we cannot miss these faux stretch-leather leggings. They are a simple yet impressive pick as they offer a virtually invisible interior waistband to sculpt and flatter your figure.
It’s a good idea to keep in mind that they are slim fit, so sizing up from your usual choice is preferred, at least if you’re going for a more comfortable feel. Trust me when I say that nothing is the new black, because black is black. And that’s how it should be.
