I am all about collecting basic closet staples in my wardrobe, like my white sweater, distressed jeans and black coat. They are easy to dress up or down, accessorize, and wear over and over again without it looking like you don’t have anything else in your closet (yes, those trendy sequin and aztec patterned tops are fun and cute, but how often can you actually wear them? And how soon will they go out of style?) Don’t get me wrong, I love a good statement clothing item, but I would rather invest my money on a good closet staple that is classic and I can wear multiple times. That way, I can spend a little less money on a statement accessory that can really make my outfit.
My plaid scarf and red lace-up flats (similar here and here) really play up this simple outfit. And bonus: festive for the holidays! The exact scarf I am wearing is from last year, but there are so many cute plaid blanket scarves out this year! I will link more options here, here and here.
