Wardrobe Basics Checklist

Use this checklist to build a strong foundation of timeless pieces that can be paired with almost anything in your closet.

  • Black tank A white tank has its place—at the gym or on casual outings—but a black one is more universal. Dress it up with dark jeans or a skirt.
  • Short-sleeved white T-shirt White tees become unwearable quickly, so skip the costly designer versions and buy a bunch of good-looking inexpensive ones. Then replace as needed.
  • Short-sleeved black T-shirt The best short-sleeve length is about 1/2 to 1 inch longer than a typical cap sleeve—it shows just the right amount of arm.
