There are certain items I always refer to as my "closet classics". These are the workhorse items that get used over and over and over again. I have several. Some of these closet classics are jeans, some are cardigans, some are shoes. Some were a little more expensive, others have been relatively cheap. My closet has a little bit of everything. Last week I pulled out some classics and paired them together to create this look:
Gathering Tank-Anthropologie/ AG Stevie Ankle Denim-Anthropologie/ Denim Jacket-Gap/ Miz Mooz "Siri" Knee-High Boots-Endless (now Amazon)/ Drawing Room Necklace-Anthropologie/ Sainte Chapelle Earrings-Anthropologie/ Flower Bud Ring-J Crew
This top has been in my closet for a few years...I liked it so much that I bought it in multiple colors. It's fantastic for layering. The AG denim was a sale purchase last year...and one of my favorite pairs of jeans, hands down. I picked up this denim jacket just last month for only $21 with a promo code and a rewards card in hand...not bad for a staple denim jacket! The boots were my go-to boots last winter, and are still strong in the winter shoe rotation...love these! Well worth the cost. All the jewelry has been worn multiple times...especially that ring. I actually lost the ring while we were in the middle of our move this summer and I was devastated I loved it so much! As soon as we were close to a J Crew retail store again I went in and had them track me down another to replace the one I lost. I think I may have gotten the last one in the country because that sucker was hard to find! As you can see every piece in this outfit has been in my closet for a while (except the jacket) and have become closet classics in more ways than one.
Of course I have many more closet classics hanging in my closet than just these...there are a lot. I like being able to mix and match the things I love, to create new looks. I want to keep trying harder to remix what I have already and find new ways to liven up my classics. Changing up the way you style or pair something is an easy way to make an item feel brand new!
What are your closet classics?
Have a great weekend!!!
