Below are three outfit ideas that show how easy these essentials are to mix and match!

Throw some camo into your mix! Don't be scared, camoflage is trending all over the runway this season and is sure to make you stick out! A denim top is the perfect go to when you don't know what to wear or how to complete an outfit, and what is more comfortable than a maxi skirt! Add your favorite necklace that goes with everything and you are set.

Any blouse with a button down front is versatile in what and how it can be worn. Button it down regular for a classic look, button it midway down and tie the bottom for a more flirty approach, or wear it open over a tank top with a little lace! Bet you did't know one shirt had so many options!

Get in touch with your natural beauty with this neutral colored outfit. White washed boyfriend jeans are simple, so comfortable, and go with everything! The gray tank with lace trim accents nicely under the sheer, lightweight white blouse and can be buttoned multiple ways as mentioned earlier. To complete this look here are five easy everyday make-up steps to create a lightweight and neutral palette that enhances your natural beauty!

Now that you have thirteen basic items, looking through your closet to find something to wear will be simply effortless! What is your favorite basic item from GUG? Comment and tell us for a chance to win a $25.00 gift card. The winner will be announced at 12:00 P.M. June 9th!
