We can probably all agree that there's enough to worry about in life without the stress of figuring out what you're going to wear every morning. But if you do, in fact, suffer from wardrobe-induced stress, the first step is to get to the bottom of what's causing it. The likely reason you don't have a stress-free wardrobe? You're not shopping for the right things. We know from experience that it can be tempting to spend your whole wardrobe budget on accessories or buy your favorite pieces on repeat, leaving you with nothing to wear with them. But by doing that, not only are you wasting your money, but you're also probably wasting your time figuring out what to wear every morning.
To get you started in reforming your stress-inducing shopping habits, we curated a selection of pieces that every stress-free wardrobe should entail, all of which are incredibly versatile and meant to be worn on repeat.
