When building a wardrobe, it’s important to focus on purchasing key pieces that will last for the season ahead or for many more to come. While trends are great, it’s the staples pieces that you have in your wardrobe that will help speak to your personal style so be sure to invest in ones that will last the test of time.
Some of you have already seen these booties on my blog before from Marshalls, and I apologize in advance for showing them again but I can’t help it. I’ve already worn them so many times since buying them and know they will come in handy this season and next year, too. Worn with just about anything from a camisole top, faded skinny jeans and a black floppy hat with friends, to this plaid skirt from Forever 21 and a denim chambray shirt in the city, they have become such a versatile accessory in my wardrobe.
The same can be said about this handbag. Crafted with supple faux leather and expandable sides for greater capacity, it’s the perfect tote to accompany your fall and winter looks. Fringe, once an outdated trend, is now front and center and chic on just about anything from bags to jackets to jewelry. I’m thinking it will stick around for a while because it’s not over the top, works on nearly everything and is a great way to instantly refresh your wardrobe and give it a new-season twist.
Also, in my wardrobe are a variety of chambray shirts. This one is cut to fit closer to the body, yet is super comfortable because it’s made with soft, flexible fabric. Tie it around your waist when wearing a pencil skirt or layer it over a semi-sheer blouse – either way, you’ll have it and wear it for a long time. Trust me!
