There are always those classic pieces that all the fashion articles say you should have in your closet. You see the same things repeated in every article from building a wardrobe to being a closet minimalist. I never sat down and tried to buy everything they say you should but I still managed to acquire most of those pieces natrually.
This look is an accidental showcasing of a lot of those wardrobe staples. The newest item to my closet is the black blazer and it happens to be my first. Any time I had tried on a blazer before I felt like I was going to an interview or a meeting. I wanted it to look like the off duty looks you see in candids and street style sites. So I went with something a little longer that also had some texture to it and it I finally felt like it was the perfect addition.
I paired it with my other closet staples like this striped top, dark skinny jeans, and my monogram necklace. That last one might not be as important of a piece to everyone but in the South monograms are definitely a staple. I never owned a monogramed necklace before because I didn’t want it to be something big and plain. When I came across this one on Swell Caroline I knew I found the right one for me because it was delicate and had gorgeous detailing.
All of these pieces fit my personal style, and I guess that’s the beauty of classic pieces. We all somehow manage to have the same pieces fill our closets but they are all different based on each individual’s style.
