This past week was the first official day of Spring, which means Spring cleaning, the worst I know. Every year until I left my moms house she made me go through all of my clothes and threw away or give away everything I didn’t need so I’ve gotten in the habit every year to do it. But this year it was a little different. So there I am inside my closet looking aimlessly trying to figure out what the hell am i going to do with all of these clothes. A little back story about me, if you didn’t know me, I’m a compulsive shopper, I. BUY. EVERYTHING. As i purposefully scheme through the racks I told myself “I need to get rid of shit, or I’m literally going to make my whole dinning room a closet” (which it already is). As I was looking at all the beautiful pieces I didn’t have the hear to throw or give away I got to thinking about staples, pieces that I wear almost everyday and I have kept in my closet for a reason. As I start rummaging through the chaos I found 9 staples that for sure I needed to keep, (I kept most of them, don’t tell my mom). So here is my top 9 must haves staples that you can wear all year round and with absolutely everything in your closet.
Black leather shoulder bag
I think this is a given, this is one of my favorite staples in my wardrobe. A black leather shoulder bag goes with absolutely anything and in anytime. Wether you’re on the way to the grocery store, or off to dinner, a black leather shoulder bag is chic and luxurious. I mean where else are we going to put our hot sauce?
A black/ nude pointy toe
From your moms closet, to Carrie Bradshaw’s Manolo Mary Jane’s the timeless black pointy toe will never go out of style. Casually wear them with jeans and a t shirt or a sexy little black dress a black or nude pointy toe matches with everything. Lets just say I have a couple of pairs in the closet I couldn’t part with.
A wise man once said “I want to die in my blue jeans” well Mr. Andy Warhol I couldn’t have agreed more sir. This is a staple forever and goes with virtually every top and every jacket in your closet! You could never go wrong with a basic blue jean. I cant remember a day when I am not wearing a blue jean, its so easy and it really does make a difference in putting a little effort in a casual look.
Whether you’re a damn Daniel vans, adidas, Nike or puma kind of girl one thing is for sure you need to own a pair of white sneakers. This minimalist, sporty spice, chic staple is what every girl needs in her shoe collection. Put on your favorite blue jeans, a white tee and your favorite sunnies and you basically turn into your favorite blogger.
Speaking of white tees this one is an oldie but a goodie. This 90’s street style, hip hop look has made its way in today’s fashion, both crisp and subtle a white tee is versatile and clean making any look effortless. Pair it up with a leather mini or a statement fringe skirt with some classic black strap heels and you are fashion week ready.
Black leather jacket
Enough said. I mean who doesn’t own one.
A camel trench coat
Personally I am a sucker for coats and a camel trench is one of the reasons why. Both sophisticated and versatile a camel trench coat could turn any look into a model off duty realness. What I love about this classic piece is that it creates a rich and elementary look that anyone can pull off.
The pants of all pants, if we learned anything from Sarah Michelle Gellar circa “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is that a leather pant can kick some major ass. Leather skinnies are both sleek and sexy, from a semi casual daytime look to slayer realness at night, a leather pant is a closet must have.
This 70’s inspired staple is for sure one of my favorites in my closet especially in the spring time. A denim jacket is casual, and has a certain rebellious feel to it. It is durable and today strongly desirable in most looks. Rock it with blue jeans and a white top and wala you flashback back to Britney and Justin circa 2001. I mean who doesn’t like a denim on denim look?
There you have it my top 9 staples pieces that is going to last you for a very long time, and you can take my word for it.
