Fashion Staple Pieces
AYO! Happy Monday, peeps 🙂
As promised, here is one of my favorite topics I wanted to share with you all: Wardrobe Staple Pieces! Woot woot!
As I’m still freshly new at my job, and the dress code is business casual/jean appropriate I want to continue to build my wardrobe with with pieces I can match for a whole slue of outfits! + I think it’s so fun to mix and match pieces to creat new and fun outfits for any occasion.
Here’s just a few fab pieces I’m looking to buy this summer:
1. Navy blazer: navy pieces can go with so many different colors, such as coral, white, grey, tan, white, yellow, other shades of blue, etc. I’m so excited to pair this with a coral peplum top I recently bought at Express, and with dark or light jeans- high waisted or hip-rise! Ahhh, and patterns! I think a patterned top would look stellar with a simple navy blazer.
2. Oxfords: I always seen young women sporting Oxfords, from black to tan to navy. Honestly, I really like tan/nude oxfords because I think they could pair with a wider variety of colors. Seriously, you could wear these little lace up shoes with a fun neutral, casual dress, jeans or even navy pants. The opportunities are endless!
3. High waisted black pants: While I do have a pair, I want another brand of black pants (mine are a little too stretchy for my taste….). At the same time, I wear these with so many different outfits- casual or work- based on the top(s) I’m wearing. They look so chic with pointed toed heels or flats and a skinny black belt! So many possibilities. + black goes with nearly any color (aside from navy).
I found all of these items on Old Navy’s website- a place I haven’t really shopped before… definitely some cute finds!
So bloggers, what are some staple items you currently own or want to own in the future? What do you pair them with?
Until next time, Xx
PS- A good friend of mine introduced me to a local boutique here in Columbus, OH called Vernacular. I have never liked nearly every piece at a store/boutique until I walked into one of their two locations! Check out Vernacular on their website at vernacular.myshopify.com or on their Facebook– they have a very interesting history, too! It’s slightly pricey, but all are pieces you wouldn’t find at a “big box” shop… Happy shopping!
