Wardrobe Staples

(this is the one I have)

Classic pieces. I have always been drawn to classics. It's fun to mix and match high and low fashions once you have some great staples. For me, the staples are the foundation of my wardrobe. Don't get me wrong, I love trendy pieces, I just spend a lot less on those things and buy fewer over the years. I have really learned what I like from my background in wardrobe styling. My version of classic is a bit more bohemian and laid back.

Here is a list of my staples, my go to pieces that I rely on time and time again:

1. Boyfriend jeans (can dress up or down)
2. Scarves (print, solid, lightweight)
3. Round toe black pumps
4. Basic wedge shoes
5. Grandpa cardigans (black, beige, white, purple)
6. Oversized gold Michael Kors watch
7. Long solid maxi dresses (great with cardis or denim jacket)
8. Dark skinny J Brand jeans (with ankle zipper detail)
9. Medium everyday bag (mine is a taupe Marc by Marc Jacobs)
10. Black leggings
11. Gray loose tank (perfect for colorful statement necklaces)
12. Colorful, fun statement necklaces (F21, H & M, flea markets)
13. Beige belt (H & M has an amazing selection)
14. Taupe boots (goes well with black and brown)
15. Little gold, charm/beaded bracelets
