Grab a cup of coffee and read on to find what our picks for wardrobe essentials are, and how you can style them!
Have these 10 things in your wardrobe and you’re sorted!
1. Black Pants
Hail black pants! I cannot stress enough on how much of a wardrobe staple black pants are.
Wear them to work with a shirt, wear them to a party with a bralette and a sheer cover up, wear them for a casual day out with a long kurta!
2. Blue Denims
I cannot imagine my wardrobe without denims. It is the unparalleled love for jeans!
Boyfriend jeans, patchwork jeans, bootcut, ripped, acid washed, or the basic blue ones – whichever is your pick, you cannot miss having blue denims as your wardrobe staple.
Style them with a kurta and you’ll be ready for college. Wear it with a body suit and look stunning on date night!
3. White Top
Blue jeans with white top makes the ultimate fashion statement. It is, and shall always be in vogue.
The best part about a white top is that you can wear it in a subtle classy way, or go all out and be bold.
Accessorize the look with tribal jewelry or a statement neckpiece and you can never be wrong with a white top.
4. Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses are what summer dreams are made up of.
- Going for a beach vacation – pack maxi dresses!
- Going out for lunch with friends – wear a maxi dress!
- Have to attend an event and haven’t waxed?? – Wear a maxi dress!
See, how versatile a maxi dress is. And not to forget the epic comfort level. On days when you feel lazy to dress up, trust me a maxi dress can be a savior.
5. Denim Shirt
If you’re a 90s kid you’ll understand the love for denim shirts.
Denim shirts have made a huge comeback. They are perfect to add a layer and rock the summer layering look. Wear it over a crop top, a bralette, or even a tank top.
Denim on denim is one look that has our heart. It is such a statement! Wear it for a brunch, movie outing, or on a casual Friday at work.

6. Pencil Skirt
This summer ditch the pants and switch to pencil skirts. They are perfect for formal wear and suit all body types.
Wear a solid coloured pencil skirt with a printed top and heels to rock the bosslady look.
You can also team up the same formal pencil skirt with an oversized t-shirt and sneakers for a movie date or lunch with friends.
7. Printed Palazzo
Summers and palazzos are a match made in heaven. And we love them even more because they are a fancy version of pajamas!
Pair a printed palazzo with a white chikankari kurta for the quintessential summer look.
A crop top or a knotted t-shirt with printed palazzo and sneakers – casual wear goals.
8. Black Dress
We cannot do without a little black dress!
Whether it is a date night or appraisal meeting at office, a black dress makes an everlasting impression.
For a bold look team it up with red lips and red heels. And for a subtle classy look, go for nude dewy make-up and black flats.
A shrug is such an understated wardrobe must have. This humble little piece proves to be a savior every time.
Wear it over jeans and tank top when you’ve not waxed. Or just add it as an extra layer to your outfit to give that edge.
And if you’re like me who feels extra cold in air conditioning, then a shrug is the perfect snuggle companion!
