A lot of fashion trends may come and go, but when it comes to building up your wardrobe, the basics are your BFFs. These staples have stood the test of time and are pieces you can reach for no matter the occasion—all you have to do is style your OOTD around them!

Though these essential pieces may seem like no-brainers, it helps to have a ~*guide*~ who you can look to when choosing what goes in your closet. Enter: Alexa Ilacad. When she’s not dressed up to the nines for her many events and shows, you can find the 22-year-old actress in staples that look classic no matter what.

Below, we compiled eight basic wardrobe staples every girl should have, as seen on Alexa’s feed:

1. Little black dress

An LBD is a classic that everyone should have in their wardrobe. It’s perfect for office days or night-outs with your friends or S.O.!

2. Floral dress

Not a fan of plain-colored dresses? Pick one in a pretty floral print and pair it with heels or sandals to further solidify the romantic vibes. Alternatively, you can wear it with white sneakers to keep yourself comfortable.

3. Denim jacket

When it comes to jackets, there are so many styles and silhouettes you can choose from, but if we’re talking about basics, we have to go with the good ol’ denim jacket. Aside from being comfy, you can pair it with almost everything else in your closet.

4. Co-ords

Co-ords are the answer if you have a hard time thinking of what clothes to pair early in the morning. The mixing and matching is already done for you!

5. One-piece swimsuit

For all the beach babes out there, a maillot in a solid color is a must-have in your wardrobe. We also love the fact that all body types look *good* in it!

6. Sunglasses

The eternally hot weather in our country makes sunglasses a non-negotiable, TBH.

7. White sneakers

Of course, no basics list is complete without white sneakers. You can choose a plain one or do what Alexa did and go for one with minimal accents for a pop of color.

8. Black boots

These are a must-have for anyone obsessed with the Y2K aesthetic. They’re a great investment because a pair can last you a lifetime, thanks to how sturdy and well-made they are!
