Your wardrobe can be bursting with the latest fashion trends, but it’s the faithful staples that really carry the whole outfit. Here are some of my favorite pieces that keep the balance.
Blazers are chic and effortless all at the same time. Depending on the style, cut and length, you can elevate a casual look into a sophisticated one, or turn a rigid outfit into an edgy statement. Blazers are for all seasons and go with any piece you can think of, making them an essential piece in your wardrobe.
White denim was always treated as the lesser-known cousin in the denim family. But things are finally changing! White denim is probably the easiest to style because it’s so versatile. Pair it with a cute tee and tonal sneakers for a really chill look, or take it into the evening with black ankle boots and an oversized jacket.
Leather shorts have taken the world by storm this year, and for good reason. The beauty of leather is that it’s timeless, making leather shorts a key item that works with pretty much any shoe. Plus, they’re super comfortable and durable, what’s not to love?
Like leather shorts, leather pants are classic and will never go out of style. They’re comfortable, easy to clean and they’ll be with you for years. For a day-to-day look, add an oversized knit and throw on a pair of chunky sneaks. For a classy evening look, swap the sweater for a chic blouse and the sneaks for a pair of classy heels.
Quite possibly the greatest piece of clothing ever invented, the jumpsuit is the perfect combo of modern and retro. They’re really flattering, and work well with all kinds of shoes, from combat boots to cute mules. They’re the ultimate summer piece that everyone needs.
The fashion world loves a risk-taker, and mules will help you own that title. The ‘slip on and go’ shoes turn any ensemble into a statement with ease. Jeans and a blazer or an elegant dress, mules go with both and will take your outfit to the next level.
Chunky sneakers are back and they’re letting us all live our Spice Girl fantasy. Despite the bulky look, most styles are really lightweight and super comfy. Due to their size, it’s best to balance them out with an outfit that plays with shape. Try them with a cute pair of culottes, a midi skirt, or cropped mom jeans. Either way, you’ll rock ‘em.
