Top 20 Closet Essentials

Our closets are filled with a tremendous amount of things, most of which we don’t need, but if we were to strip it down to the absolute essentials, what would we have left? For me, I know it would consist of leather, and black. Lots of black. After researching, I found some universal items any fashionista absolutely needs:

white tee

1. Plain white tee- perfect for just about any outfit in the book

black leggings

2. Black leggings- under oversized sweaters or in the gym
