5 Staples YOU Won't Regret

With the way fashion trends come and go it can sometimes seem impossible to keep up! Just when you have found all the trendy pieces that best fit you the trend changes. This is both a wonderful thing and at the very same time the hard thing. I love that fashion doesn't stay the same and that it is constantly evolving into a new, different and fresh expression of our generation. We as individuals are in a process, our lives evolving into something different with every experience or encounter we face so why wouldn't fashion do the same? However this does not have to intimidate us when looking at trends or even deciding what to add to our wardrobe! It honestly should be freeing because we have the ability to express ourselves/our style through this avenue! 

One thing that I have started to do every season is watch the trends that seem to be coming and I choose a few different pieces that I absolutely love and get those so that I can both enjoy the trend but not have a closet full of clothes that I won't want to wear in a few months time. The rest of my closet is full of staples that can compliment any trend as well as just be a full blown expression of ME. I want to share my top 5 staple items in my wardrobe that I think would benefit anyone no matter your style!

 

1: Chambray
In every form and style chambray doesn't fail as a staple! It compliments all kinds of looks as well as looks great by itself. I wear this look all year long!

 

2: Black & White Stripes
If I am super honest I absolutely love stripes and probably half my wardrobe is stripes. I think stripes in any color is a staple. However if I had to choose only one I would go with black and white stripes because it looks good with so many things. Stripes are also very flattering on all body types, so mix that with the classic black and white and I think you can see why I say this is a staple you won't regret!

 

3: Nice White Tank Top
Now I know we all have our share of white tank tops that we wear underneath other clothes BUT I think having nice white tank tops are definitely a staple! First because they match with EVERYTHING, secondly they are great for layering in the fall or pairing with colored pants, skirts, or shorts. Plus there is the most obvious reason that when paired with black it gives you an extremely classy, timeless look that you didn't have to do much work to achieve. There are more reasons as to why this is a good staple, but for these reasons alone I always keep a fresh selection of white tank tops in my closet!

 

4: White Tennis Shoes
These come with me through every season and every trend! I wear them with dresses, shorts, and pants. They have a way of taking a fancy outfit and giving it character as well as taking my joggers and making it look like I meant to wear sweatpants all day! This is one of my most worn staples and I know it is one that you most certianly will not regret!

 

5: Gold Personalized Necklace
I love jewelry and I am all about wearing fun statement piece necklaces. However I would say that most days I end up wearing one of my gold personalized necklaces because for one they mean something to me and I am all about incorporating who I am into my style, and two they compliment pretty much everything I wear. They don't always have to be worn by themselves, they look great layered with chokers or longer necklaces. It is a great way to put a piece of your personality into your everyday style!

 

These are 5 of my top picks that have come with me through many seasons and trends! They adapt well with the changing fashions and are things that I have grown comfortable paring with lot's of different looks and styles. They also come in so many different styles themselves and allow for your personal identity to shine through a little! #livelifesmitten
