Having staple pieces in your closet is essential, just like having to drink water to hydrate I mean no that is a no brainer. These pieces are the go to items that make you effortlessly fashionable.
Here are my top 5 go to staple pieces
ONE: A white tee, OK so you can go for the round neck or the V-neck, but If I had to pick one it would have to be the V-neck for me, it is effortless and goes well with the minimalist look and never disappoints when dressing it up or down.
TWO: A pair of blue jeans. Whether its the washed out blue denim or the dark classic blue jeans, or even ripped jeans, Jeans will always come in handy as a go to piece in your look, an no matter your style there is always a jean for you.
THREE: A good pair of sneakers, aah the comfort is real, OK we can’t always do heels, or we can and we just choose not to, so on those days when you want to pull off a sporty look or a relaxed look, my go to sneakers are a pair of black converse sneakers and a pair of black and white Nike sneakers.
FOUR: When in doubt always have leggings…well that doesn’t sound right, but anyway, YAAAS leggings, especially a pair of black ones, you can never go wrong. They are comfortable and just hug your curves in all the right places, so why not.
FIVE: Last but not last owning a go to jacket to add to your look, A jacket/coat can make or break a look, it can over power you and drown your whole look or it can add the extra zing to your look. I am usually torn when it comes to just picking one jacket so I will mention my two go-to’s and that would have to be a leather jacket as well as a denim jacket and I think I have said this a couple of times, they never disappoint.
White V-neck t-shirt by Calvin Klein, chic and just effortless.
My pair of blue jeans, both skinny jeans and the light washed out jean is from Rue21 and the dark blue jeans are Free 2bu. Let me just say jeans are so versatile now, I mean the bootleg jean is making its way back. Go for the jean that best fits you!
Sneakers, well lets start with owning a pair of converse, if you do not own a pair be sure to get them Asap, they always work well when taking on street wear and always takes on a flexible role, as well as a pair of black and white Nike sneakers.
Leggings, these are from forever 21, because honestly they are a bargain, they are very affordable and you always get more than one, because you can never have too many.
Go-to Jackets, Leather and Denim. OK so the leather is from ZARA, super smooth, Love it! and the Denim is from BIG BLUE, which is a South African Brand, which creates its pieces in South Africa and are totally authentic.
Minimal is trendy, ensure to have the staples in your closet and be sure to put your own twist to it.
