Nothing beats a pair of well-fitting jeans! They come in a bazillion different cuts and styles (flared, skinny, boot-cut, petite, tall, etc) for every body type. They are extremely versatile, easily dressed up or dressed down, and easily styled (especially when you take into account the many different prints and colors out there!) These are three of my favorite pair of jeans. The distressed girlfriend jean, is one of my all time favorites! It is a variation of the boyfriend jean, just a bit more fitted. The different colored jeans add their own unique charm to different outfits. The olive color has a relaxed, yet put-together vibe. While the white is so chic and elegant! I'm in the market for other colored jeans, in particular; maroon/fuchsia and light blue!
Blazers are great! Not only do they add a level of professionalism to an outfit, but they also are great for styling. They dress up just about every outfit. They can be worn with jeans, dresses, skirts, shorts, rompers/jumpsuits, anything really! Plus they are great for layering! These are three of my favorite blazers -on the right is my Chaus NY blazer, which makes frequent appearances on here! ;)
3. Basic T-Shirt
T-shirts are great pieces for every girl to have! Soft and chic, they are great for layering! They are simple pieces but they have a soft allure. I fell in love with the way these tees in particular drape over my frame. They are easy for when you are on the go. Just throw on a blazer or add a necklace, pair with shorts for hot summer days or with jeans for a date night. Either way you get an easy, effortless look!
4. Denim Jacket
Denim jackets will always have a spot in my heart. They are a piece that has been reinvented over the years. They are so relaxed and unfussy. Light weight for that transition from summer to fall or winter to spring. Imagine it with a summer dress or with those olive green pants from earlier or with a pair of shorts -the denim jacket adds a bit of rustic character to every look!
5. Pencil Skirts
I love pencil skirts! Talk about a chic piece! Perfect for the work! Perfect for date nights! Extremely versatile and fun to style! These are three of my favorites! The navy GAP skirt is simple but imagine it with a crisp white button down?! The textured, rose skirt could also work with a button down or a silk blouse, even a crop top! And the black and white striped skirt adds drama!
6. Chunky Sweaters
Chunky sweaters are another piece that have stood the test of time. This year in particular they have been in full swing! And why not? They are warm, flattering, stylish, and come in all shapes, sizes, and patterns. For an effortless look, pair them with leggings and boots! =)
7. Printed Bag
If you have followed my blog any length of time, you may have noticed I have a love of prints. Leopard print in particular! Prints are interesting! Between mixing them or allowing them to stand on their own or using them to enhance your outfit, the possibilities for styling are endless!
8. Comfy Heels
Do I need to say more? This is the most obvious of course! Great heels are only great if they are stylish AND comfy! =)
9. Statement Necklaces
Statement necklaces really got their moment this year. I love them! The drama, the character, the elegance that they bring to outfits is unique. I personally have found it a fun challenge to layer them into an even greater statement piece!
10. Printed Scarves
Scarves in general are a great way to style and combat cold weather. Prints can vastly enhance an ensemble. They can bring character and charm or diversity to a look.
