30 Non-Basics All Fashion Girls Have

Look inside any fashion editor or blogger's closet and you're bound to find an entire roster of tried-and-true basics — you know, those classic items that everyone should own, like a crisp oxford shirt, a black blazer, or the perfect white tee. But these pieces stand alongside another crop of clothing: the ones that are anything but basic. Colorful fluffy keychains and oversized trousers may seem like no-brainers for the style-minded, but they're not so obvious for the less adventurous dressers among us. It's these standouts, however, that really take an outfit to the next level.

The 30 non-basic basics ahead are easy to integrate into your wardrobe, whether you're planning on going full peacock, or just looking for a pop to your more subtle daily ensembles. Either way, with the new year around the corner, it's time to take some fashion risks. And these items will help guide the way.
