Now that the party season is long gone, it’s time to go back to basics – The ones that always rule your wardrobe, no matter what! And after going through the last two years, one thing that we can be sure of is the best-laid plans can go down the drain and so do the trends. However, there’s one thing that stays – THE BASICS.
With the cancelled travel diaries, ever-shifting office routine, and other postponed plans, our clothing has become all about sticking to our comfort zone. And our comfort begins when we stop thinking about “What to wear the next day”. This question is thrown out of the window when your wardrobe has a collection of versatile, everlasting and comfortable 2022 Must-Haves.
Here’s a list of 7 essentials that will complete your wardrobe and will last you a lifetime.
Your wardrobe staples should begin with a clean slate and a white crisp shirt is what kick starts the whole collection. Any important work meeting, a classic look for a day, or even a day out with friends, there’s no piece of clothing that makes a better statement than a white shirt.
