There are key pieces to a wardrobe that can transcend the trends of time.  One of those key pieces is the denim jacket.  If I had to pick a few articles of clothing that were a “must have”, this would be one.  Another transitional garment is the black t-shirt dress.  Worn alone with sandals, layered here with skinnies, this basic dress can be a perfect packing item when you want various looks with minimum articles to pack.  Third, is the skinny jean.  Now this jean cut doesn’t seem to be heading out any time soon, as we see jeggings of the sort in all stores.  It is my go-to pant when heading out the door just out of sheer comfort and versatility.

When these pieces are all worn together it may just seem a tad boring or well, basic.  Add your personal touch with your favorite bootie or hat, signature jewels, plus that customized manicure and you’ve got a style you can call your own!  So all this to say, while basic may be basic…these pieces stand through the timelines, unclutter the closet, and serve as the backdrop to your creative styling!

I love mixing high end brands with low end brands.  Not only can I have more versatility in my looks by accessorizing, but the high end items elevate the entire outfit.  For example, the classic maxi dress with a denim jacket!

These aviator sunglasses are Dolce & Gabbana, and are the perfect color of metallic for my skin tone.  This Coach bag is a beautiful classic that will never go out of style.  Changing out my purse to coordinate with each outfit has extended the life of my bags.   These functional items have truly become a key piece to accessorizing my ensembles.  Depending on the occasion, my bag will dictate what I wear.  Are you a bag changer?
