Fashion Friday - Wardrobe Staples

1. |  2.  |  3.  |  4.  |  5.  |  6.  |  7.  |  8.  |  9.  |  10.

I've been asked by some friends lately to help them with styling.  It's so fun and it's part of why I started this blog.  I love fashion and even more, I love being able to help other women, especially moms get their groove back.  Or in some cases, just get their groove!

The first place when I help someone with their style is to talk to them about wardrobe staples.  You cannot even begin to put outfits together unless you have these basics.  I have a collage above of some basics, but a complete list is below.  These are recommendations!  You may not need everything or want everything on this list, but it's a beginning point.  You can also add to your basics at any time because they are just that... BASICS!  These wardrobe staples are classic pieces that should last you a looong time.

However, just because they're basics doesn't mean they are boring!  The best basic, classic, wardrobe staples have beautiful detailing.  Simple and elegant detailing that will not easily go out of style.  For example, the pencil skirt above?  It's a classic length, just below the knee, and black and white (always classic).  But the pattern is beautiful, intriguing... not boring!

Keep this in mind when choosing classic pieces; look for detail around the pockets, necklines etc., flattering ruching (as in the LBD), and things to lengthen your silhouette (everyone looks good in bootcut jeans & pointy toed pumps lengthen your legs).  Don't forget about color!  Add some color to some unexpected pieces like your trench coat or pumps!

So here's the list!

Wardrobe Staples & Classic Pieces:

  • A great pencil skirt
  • White blouse
  • Jeans
  • Trench coat
  • Wool coat
  •  Cardigan sweater
  • Classic suit including pants & jacket
  • A little black dress (LBD)
  • Riding boot
  • Pumps
  • Flats
  • White T-shirt
  • Black T-shirt
  • Statement pieces: scarves, jewelry, etc. 
Good luck and you can always ask me any questions!

  1. I agree with everything on your list! I'd also include a set of pearls :)

    The Tiny Heart

    1. Yes! You're right! I have a Simply Lulu Pearl necklace that I think I'll snap soon! Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Agree, plus pearls like Sharon :)

    Happy new year!

  3. Hi pretty! Thank you so much for the follow, I'm happily following back! Love these staples... I've always had a hard time finding the "prefect" white blouse. I see you have boy/girl twins! PRESH!! I have a twin brother, so I'm always excited to make that connection! I know they are the JOY of your life! xoxo!

  4. Agree with most! I don't have pencil skirt and blouse in my list (maybe because I don't work 9-5)instead I have white crisp shirt and linen pants!

    Hugs and kisses from :

    1. My style is ever changing and I actually like to caz up a pencil skirt with booties and dress down my white blouses. I used to steer clear of "blouses" because I thought they were uncomfortable, but with new blends some are amazing!

  5. You hit the nail on the head! So many girls out there, myself included, go for the statement pieces before the staples making their wardrobe limited! Mix in a few of these and you can mix and match all day long! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Following you now!

    your newest follower,


    1. Thank you! The statement pieces sometimes are more fun to shop for. I think that's where we fall into the trap! :)

  6. This is very helpful! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog! :)
