Many of us love wearing black for various reasons: It’s stylish, versatile, and goes with all the other pieces in your closet. Best of all, this timeless color is a fave among local celebs as well, including Sharlene San Pedro! Whether she’s lounging at home or performing on stage, this 23-year-old star is almost always spotted in an effortless black ensemble. That also means she’s the best style icon to follow if you’re looking to streamline your closet with some black essentials.
Need some proof? Keep reading to see 12 black wardrobe staples every girl should have, as seen on Sharlene San Pedro:
1. Black Tee
It’s always good to have a couple of black shirts in your closet, from plain ribbed tops to laid-black graphic tees like Sharlene’s.
2. Black Bralette
As Sharlene demonstrates, lacey black bralettes are the cutest layering pieces. You can also wear the number alone on extra hot days or nights out with friends.
3. Black Jacket
Apart from keeping you warm and cozy, a black jacket also adds visual interest to your ‘fit. Sharlene dons a leather variant for that rocker chic aesthetic, but you can also try airy fabrics to keep things simple.
4. Black Hoodie
A comfy black hoodie is a must for sleepy 8 a.m. classes and impromptu errand days.
5. Black Button-Down
When you’re tired of your usual white button-down, go for a black one instead. Sharlene proves that it looks just as effortless!
6. Black Blazer
Sleek and sophisticated, a black coat will turn a five-minute look into a thesis-ready power outfit.
7. Black Jeans
As much as we love blue jeans, we have to admit that black jeans look a tad more polished. That’s why it’s important to invest in a well-fitted pair that flatters your figure and elongates your legs.
8. Black Shorts
Too hot for dark pants? Presko black shorts are your best alternative!
Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without the iconic LBD. It’s one of the few cocktail dresses that will never go out of style.
10. Black Sneakers
If white sneakers are too dumihin for your lifestyle, consider investing in a trusty pair of black sneakers.
11. Black Boots
Survive the rainy season in style with chunky black boots, similar to Sharlene’s Doc Martens!
12. Black Bag
With a versatile black bag, you’ll no longer have to deal with the hassle of switching out your purses every day just to match your outfit.
