Trends come and go, but a great sense of style stays forever. Even though the fashion industry keeps rolling out new and unique designs, there are always a few evergreen wardrobe items that have transcended the boundaries of time and made a place for themselves. Further, these items are almost always able to bail you out of the “I-have-nothing-to-wear” situation.
 
Here’s a list of what you really need to build an evergreen and versatile wardrobe:
 
1. Crisp White Shirt 
 
 
 
One of the most adaptable pieces of clothing you can add to your wardrobe is a nice crisp white button-up shirt. Nothing says ‘fresh’ more than a white shirt that dazzles onlookers. You can wear it any way you like. Fold the sleeves messily for a casual look or button the cuffs to achieve a formal look. Wear it on its own or throw on a jacket/blazer over it for a more professional appearance. 
 
When choosing a white button-up shirt, go for one in cotton as it will last longer. Also, make sure it fits you well, especially around your shoulders, and that the sleeves are neither too long nor short.
 
2. A Comfy Pair of Blue Jeans
  
We know how much you love wearing jeans and probably have them in several colors. However, it is the classic blue jeans that our hearts cannot stop beating for. While black and gray are popular colors too, it is blue jeans that have always stood the test of time. 
 
Invest in a well-fitting pair of blue jeans and you won’t regret it. These can be expensive, so go for classic cuts as they never go out of style. Avoid “trendy” jeans like ripped and acid-wash variants. Pair them up with a dressy blouse, casual t-shirt or a button-up shirt and you’ll turn out looking great every time.
 
3. The Quintessential LBD
 
 
Introduced by none other than Coco Chanel and popularized by the graceful Audrey Hepburn in her iconic movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the LBD or the little black dress has come a long way! And you really do need it in your wardrobe.
 
The ideal LBD is elegant, sophisticated and versatile enough to be worn to most occasions. The length of the dress depends on your height, body type and preferences. It can be worn to the office with a blazer, or for a party with your friends with high heels and some cool accessories. When choosing your LBD, make sure it is timeless in style and makes you feel ethereal.
 
4. A Pair of Smart Dress Pants
   
Another essential classic garment in every stylish woman’s wardrobe is a dapper pair of dress pants. This is an absolute must-have for working women as nothing lends a more professional look than black dress pants. Simply team them with just about any blouse or shirt and you’re ready to make an impact. 
 
Make sure you choose your pants carefully, though. Go for a fit that flatters your body type. Slightly flared and boot-cut fits are great options, especially for a workplace environment. 
 
5. Chic Black Blazer
 
 
The importance of owning a smart black blazer cannot be emphasized enough. This garment can singlehandedly add tremendous chutzpah to your appearance. For a professional look, throw on a blazer over a button-up shirt worn with a pencil skirt. To create a casual look, wear it over a blouse worn with jeans. Further, team it with a smart dress for a night out in town. 
 
With a black blazer, the possibilities are endless. It makes you look chic as well as keeps you warm and comfortable. Go for a simple design that sits well on your body. Avoid the flashy ones with sequins and embellishments as they’re trendy than timeless. 
 
6. Stellar Trench Coat
 
 
A trench coat has an important role to play in a woman’s wardrobe, which is what makes it an evergreen addition. Ideally, it is lightweight yet waterproof, structured and snug. Go for a trench coat in a neutral color and wear it over any outfit to add a dose of classical glamour to it. 
 
A trench coat comes in handy when the weather plays truant. Invest in one that is water-resistant and make it work for you in all seasons.
 
7. Silk Scarf
 
 
Are you always looking for ways to spruce up your attire by adding a dash of color to it? Silk scarves can be your best buddies in this case. You can wear them in any season and allow them to transform your look. 
 
Wear scarves in winter and fall to keep yourself warm and perk up your dull winter outfits with some color. In spring and summer, scarves can add layers and dimensions to basic outfits.   
 
And that’s not all. You can accessorize with scarves by softly looping them around your neck instead of wearing the same old necklace. Wrap it around your neck twice and let both ends hang loose. Also, you can try wrapping a brightly-coloured printed scarf around your hair if you’re in the mood to experiment with interesting, yet stylish headgear. When doing so, make sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple. 
 
8. A Pair of Classic Pumps
 
 
Women’s love for heels is well-known and the love affair has continued since ages. A pair of classic and comfortable pumps is, therefore, a must-have item in your wardrobe. No other footwear makes women feel more feminine and sexy than heels. A lot of women may prefer flats too, but heels are evergreen. In fact, a stylish woman’s wardrobe is incomplete without a pair or black or nude pumps. Wear them wherever you like, at the office or in the club, and put your best foot forward.  
 
9. Over-Sized Sunglasses
 
 
Looking cool, yet classic just got easier with a giant pair of sunglasses. Not only do they look effortlessly chic, they also lend you a mysterious bohemian look. They especially come in handy when you want to hide your tired eyes after a busy day at work. 
 
Almost every celebrity has been seen sporting them as they look incredibly glamorous. The best thing about them is that they can be bought online as the size is pretty much standard. Do compare prices on websites like Idealo to get a better idea of the price range. 
 
10. Structured Bag  
The structured bag is the go-to bag for most women, whether it means carrying it to the office or the movies. This type of a bag is indispensable as it takes good care of you in terms of accommodating everything you will need through the day. Whether it is your files, papers, laptop, or a bottle of water, this bag carries them all. Pick one in a black, gray or tan and let it work its magic for you.
