Wardrobe essentials mean less time wasted picking out an outfit in the morning. Have you ever had a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear? It could mean you don’t have enough closet staples or it could mean you are building a wardrobe around a fantasy lifestyle. Either way, I want you to spend more time in front of the mirror taking admiring your beauty and less time choosing outfits.
With great wardrobe essentials comes great fashion. It’s so much easier to get dressed when you have good basics and brain cells are saved for more important tasks. I want to share some wardrobe essentials that will make getting dressed in the morning SO much easier.
Cami’s: A beautiful cami can be worn to work, on the weekends, or on vacation. The one I am wearing comes in tons of colors and I love the criss-cross. I get so many compliments and own it in pearl grey too. Cami’s are wardrobe essentials that will never go out of style.
Fitted jeans: Find a style of jeans that flatter your figure and then buy them in every color. For me, skinny ankle jeans are a winner. I love the white ones that I am wearing in this outfit. They are stretchy and flattering. Jeans last years and I recommend splurging on a pair that makes you feel like a bombshell. Nordstrom has an amazing selection of jeans in many different price points. That is where I buy the majority of my jeans.
Tailored Coat: A beautiful, tailored coat will make any outfit look cohesive and thoughtful. The pink checkered coat that I am rocking is a perfect staple for spring. I am aware that it’s still crazy cold up North in Spring. Wearing a beautiful “spring colored” coat can make you feel like you are participating in “Spring” even though it feels like Winter will never end.
Classic Handbag: Whatever your budget, focus on a handbag that’s a classic shape that will last a lifetime. I am wearing the Lady Dior (size large) and I bought it pre-owned. I LOVE IT and my favorite store to purchase pre-owned handbags is here. Macy’s has tons of affordable handbag options and Nordstrom has amazing mid price points and gorgeous high-end bags too. Look for a classic shape such as tote, hobo, or crossbody.
Versatile Shoe: Give me all the shoes! Ok, well I guess I can’t have all of them. Pick a classic nude pump, a sporty sneaker, and a casual sandal or espadrille. I love the Chanel espadrilles but there are some amazing ones here for a fraction of the price!
