The 4 Staples Every Girl Needs in Her Closet

The 4 Staples Every Girl Needs in Her Closet

I realized that I have worn 1,000 versions of this outfit this past year so I thought it would be great to share my  “uniform” with you guys and why I love it so much.

Whenever I am getting ready for a casual day of working from a coffee shop or going on a lunch date,  I almost always gravitate towards a silky cami, high waisted jeans and a chic coverup like this long sweater I’m wearing above. Even on fancier occasions its perfect. I just slip on some heels and a leather jacket and feel ready to head out the door.

There are definitely a few closet staples that have made every day dressing so easy on the daily. On any given day these pieces can be dressed up or dressed down with just a few switches of accessories.


1. A good basic black camisole

I have about 6 black lacey camis in my closet and can’t stop buying them! They look perfect with layered necklaces and casually tucked into your jeans. If you don’t have one yet you are missing out. Do yourself a favor and buy a pair or two because you will use it over and over again!

2. Go-To high waisted comfy jeans

My go-to’s are these high-waisted GRLFRND Denim’s I’m wearing above. I have 2 pairs of them because I love them so much! I feel they instantly make any outfit look cool, they are comfy and have the best fit. I know that on any given day these will make any outfit look good. I’m a high waist kinda girl so these are my jam, I just find they are very flattering on me. All you need is one or two good pairs! If you are looking for a more affordable version of them, PacSun has some great options too!  Have linked some other faves below:

3. Stylish Black booties

The shoes I have above are from Zara, and currently sold out, but I have other similar ones (like these JC ones here) and more linked below. Go with whatever style works for you, but I would lean towards a style that can easily be dressed up or down.  I personally love these above because they aren’t exactly super casual but not really dressy either. They are just in between. They are so comfy for walking around (since the heel is rubber material) and the patent leather with the extra high heel gives them the perfect amount of edge for a night time look. It’s amazing how often I wear these and how many compliments I get on them every time I wear them.

4. Statement black everyday bag

You don’t have to go really expensive with this one, but it helps to have a bag that is well crafted and will elevate your whole look. While YSL (what I’m wearing above) may be a bit of splurge, there are other amazing brands out there making designer bags at affordable prices! Some of my faves atm being this beautiful Danse Lente, Polene numero uno (love this parisian brand)  or this Rebecca Minkoff. Choose your flavor below.
