Fashion is part of our daily air and it is always changing. It may be hard to keep up with all the latest trends especially if you are not a fashion junkie. But there are some basic items that every black woman should have in her closet. Don't worry, these basic clothing items will never be out of fashion and they can match every outfit of your choice so you won't have a hard time picking what to wear in a day. Take a look at these stunning pieces.

The most basic of all, a white T-shirt.

The basic white tee can be worn in almost any way imaginable so it is an absolute must-have in your closet. You can pair it with jeans, put it over a pair of swimsuit when you are beach bumming, or wear it at home on one of those lazy days. When you do not know what to wear for the day, just grab your white tee and match it with a skirt, sweater, or jeans. It will perfectly match whatever clothing item you choose to pair it with. Just be sure to get a white t-shirt that is soft and not too tight or too loose.

  • Jeans never go out of style, so be sure to have a nice pair in your closet.

Having a pair of good jeans in your closet is important for they are perfect for whatever occasion. Jeans always make a gorgeous casual outfit. You can pair them with any kind of shoes like boots, heels, sandals, pumps, or sneakers. When purchasing a pair of jeans, make sure they fit you well and compliment your body type.

There is always something to use a scarf for, so you must have one.

When you are lazy to make an extra effort to your #OOTD, putting on a plain outfit is not a problem as long as you have a scarf in your closet. A scarf can make any simple outfit look complete whether you are wearing a casual or formal outfit. A scarf can also add colors and twist to your plain outfit. A headscarf is also some of the few basic clothing items that you must have so you do not need to worry about a bad hair day. A headscarf can be used to style your hair so no one has to know that you are having a bad hair day.

You can never go wrong with black pumps.

Whether your outfit is casual or official, black pumps can go with everything. They are the best option when you want to go from day to night without having to change your footwear. Plus, black pumps stay almost always clean. Just be sure that when buying a pair of black pumps, opt for something comfortable and that fit your feet well. It is recommended to stick to one or two-inches heels so you can easily walk in them for longer periods of time.

Every black woman should own a black blazer.

A black blazer never goes out of fashion. It is perfect for both casual and official dressing. Not to mention that the color black gives a slimming look. So purchase a black blazer that fits you and is not very tight across your shoulders. You know how annoying it is when you feel like you are being suffocated or squeezed.

A leather jacket is here to stay so go grab yours.

A black leather jacket or dark-colored one can make you look fancy without trying so hard. Buy something that fits your body perfectly and does not cling too much to your body so you can move your arms around without feeling controlled.
