Skinny JeansSkinny jeans have become a staple/classic style in denim, so make sure that you’ve got a pair or two in your closet. I love to have light washes for Spring/Summer, dark washes for Fall/Winter. But if you get a medium wash then you can wear year round. I can never have enough skinnies and they are not going out of style so why not!
Little Black DressEveryone should have a LBD. This is a great piece to have for any even, it is black so you can play around with accessories. Wear statement jewelry, red pumps, a cardigan or blazer? You can always dress up or down depending on the occasion. The possibilities are endless.
Basic TeeA white or black tee is a must. It is easy to wear, wash etc. You can easily build outfits around it. Layer it with a parka or leather coat. Wear it with your favorite pair of shorts, or jeans and you are out the door.
Button Up Shirt
Wether you have a desk job or not there are hundreds of ways a button up can be styled. They never go out of style. again works great with everything and can be dressed up or down.
Dress PantsYou never know when you might need it. Even if your work is casual. There are events, funerals, job interviews, dinners what have you. Sometimes you don't feel like wearing a dress or its that time of the month when you do not feel comfortable on a dress or skirt. Trust me you need it.
If you are like me I wear booties year round, Why? Because they are comfortable and they give you that added height with the heel. It is the perfect in-between, to dress up any outfit. I love booties because you can wear with jeans, a tee and a leather jacket for a night out, or with a dress and create a boho chic look.
Because these are items that you will use year after year make sure to invest in better quality fabrics and stay away from "fast fashion" when building you closet essentials. You can literally wear a maxi skirt hundreds of ways. It is easy and quick outfit. You can wear it with a jacket, lace top, blazer, crop top, whatever your heart desires and you will still look good.
Who doesn't enjoy a leather or denim jacket. I do! Anyone can get away with using either of these, It does not matter your age or body shape you need one of these! They look good with anything. And what I love about both is that they are sturdy and a classic and last you forever. Any look/style fits with it. If you are edgy, pair with a camo pant for a tough look. if you are feminine, pair with a maxi/midi skirt that is a light soft color. Or anyone can rock a super casual look with denim jeans and a t-shirt. Trust me, try it you wont regret it.
