Closet Essentials

Closet Essentials

When I’m stuck in a rut with the clothes in my closet (I think everyone goes through this, right?!) I always go back to the basics. Some of my closet essentials are: a classic tan trench, a leather jacket, a striped tee, buttery soft blouse, the perfect jeans, a fun bag and comfy shoes (that are functional and cute). You really can’t go wrong with any of the combos above- I already have some pieces but would definitely like to add a colored leather jacket and those polka dot sneakers! I always find that the classic pieces are the ones I wear the most, so buying a little better quality will make them last after years of being worn.

  1. Totally agree about the classics! Whenever I’m running late, I always turn to these in my closet. Definitely need to convince myself that it’s “okay” to invest in these though… Love the colorful jacket and mint blouse for spring!

  3. I love classic pieces, too! I am still looking for the perfect striped shirt– the one you posted looks like a definite contender! I LOVE the Theory jacket and the Equipment blouse! Great picks!


  4. Julia, I am loving these essentials! I love the classic look of trench coats. And I think every girl needs to have a little leopard print ;) xo

  5. I love all of your choices! I always find myself going back to skinny jeans, a navy cardigan, white vneck, black blazer, and combat boots.
