It is common knowledge that a fashionista knows her stuff – the hottest outfit, the colourful bags, the shoes…don’t even get me started on the shoes. Then again, updating our wardrobe every season tends to be time-consuming, even financially draining ($150 for a dress you’ll wear only once? You’ve got to be kidding).

Thus, we’ve decided to come up with a list of the Top 10 essential clothing pieces that should be in every ‘it’-girl’s closet. Have fun scanning through, and we hope we could give some ideas that you can steal and eventually, adapt into your own wardrobe.


1.    Basic white t-shirt

Lazy weekends and casual days are part of the ‘it’-girl’s week…and what could be more fitting than your basic tee? Wearing one feels immaculate and free, something you would want to feel after a gruesome week at work. Top it off with a statement necklace and your favorite skinny jeans for that relaxed, effortless look.

Another item falling under the ‘casual’ category, this is very indispensable for the weekend warrior who’s on the go – errands, strolling, night-outs, something that could keep up with someone as fast-paced as your lifestyle.
