There are five colors that are accepted year round without any question: black, creme, nude, camel and gray (and white for a button down collared shirt). Everyone should have these essential colors in their wardrobes, and more importantly in your staple pieces. Staple items are clothes in your wardrobe that are a necessity and never go out of style. Most essential pieces you should always have in your closet: a versatile blazer, a classic white button-down, a day-to-night dress (such as a shift dress), a dark wash jean, and a trench coat. These items are the foundation for creating multiple looks that never go old.
And there is one more item every woman needs in her closet, which is a pencil skirt. It is the most flattering item a woman can own, besides a high-waisted one! Here, I have on a gray Bailey 44 skirt, with a side black leather zipper detail; a Sam Edelman white collared button down shirt, with black buttons and sheer patches running down the sides and down the back; a Fillmore black vegan leather / knit bomber jacket with gold zipper details, and it also converts into a vest; a black studded handbag by Aldo, and black INC pumps. All of these clothing items are staple pieces because they can be worn so many different ways with so many different colors. Look below for links to purchase.
Until next time.
Always be kind,
