FAVORITE #2: My Wardrobe Staples Guest post
(originally seen on Because Shanna Said So on July 19th)
A passage in Fashion for Dummies states the following:
There are some items that you absolutely need ready and waiting in
your closet. These make up the basics of your wardrobe; they’re the must
haves, no matter what your style — the wardrobe essentials. To be considered a wardrobe essential, an article of clothing has to have several important attributes:
everything in your closet, should have all the qualities of a 10, and
because they form the basis of your stylish wardrobe, it’s okay to spend
a little more for these than you would other, less essential, items.
So, I looked in my closet with the intention of picking 3 things that I thought were items that met all of the above criteria.
I wanted to choose a clothing item, a pair of shoes, and an accessory.
After looking at my closet, the choices were simple!
I went with my denim jacket (HERE in Large and X-Large… and HERE in all sizes), my nude flats (HERE), & a statement necklace (HERE).
Remember, if you order the jacket, most feel it runs small (especially in the upper arms).
All from Nordstrom. All excellent quality. All extremely versatile year round pieces.
After choosing my 3 WARDROBE STAPLES,
I set out to prove that they really could be worn year round in lots and lots of different looks!
So, I played dress up!
Check out the 6 different looks I created with my 3 basic WARDROBE STAPLES!
All I did in each outfit was change out my shirt and my bottoms. Everything else was the same!
All of the above pics contain 3 WARDROBE STAPLES:
the denim jacket (HERE in Large and X-Large… and HERE in all sizes),
the nude flats (HERE), and my statement necklace (HERE).
Then, I simply changed 2 other pieces in and out in each outfit to create 6 VERY different looks.
WHEW! That’s a lot of looks created around 3 basic pieces!
The versatility of the nude flats definitely surprised me the most.
The only reason I even bought them was because of the following picture.
And because I knew a lot of you might question the versatility of a nude flat (just like I did!), I put together a Pinterest collage showing us all how nude flats can be a key item in our wardrobes
spanning ALL 4 SEASONS.
The versatility and the classic style makes THESE BABIES a WARDROBE STAPLE!
I have them, and I LOVE them.
They are sooooooo comfy, and I love how they are patent. They really class up an outfit, and they look good with everything. I’ve worn them at least once a week since buying them late in the spring, and the collage above gets me fired up to wear them all fall and winter too.
So, THESE are mine.
But if you don’t dig the patent like I do, here are 3 other fabulous choices for you (all with great reviews!), but the pair on the right has FANTASTIC reviews.
left HERE, middle HERE, right HERE
I LOVE all 3 of the choices below.
I’m telling you, if you get a pair, you will wonder how you ever lived without them.
And of course the necklace (click HERE) is a style staple that would work year round.
It’s the red one in all of the pics above, but I’m totally digging the mustard and grey one too!
