5 WARDROBE STAPLES WE SWEAR BY:
A CLASSIC BLAZER:
My blazer is by Cinq a Sept and it has been my go to choice lately. It is perfectly over-sized and I love that the sleeves are made to look pushed up. I also like the loose tailoring on this blazer because it gives a more casual vibe. I’m wearing a size 0 in this chic blazer.
Express has been knocking it out of the park lately when it comes to blazers, and this budget friendly version of my blazer is no exception. I especially love this one because it is made with a body contour material that will give you a smooth and slim silhouette all-day long. A high quality item without the designer price tag that I guarantee you will love.
SIMPLE BODYSUITS & TEES:
I wearing my go-to bodysuit from SKIMS in this look as well. Truth be told, I literally wear this bodysuit at least twice a week. It’s the perfect thing to wear under any jacket and it will give a slim silhouette because it’s a bodysuit. It also doesn’t hurt that it is incredibly comfortable and under $100. I’m wearing a XS in this wardrobe basic we swear by.
On the other hand, If you’re not a lover of wearing bodysuits then a simple white crew-neck tee like the one Cathy is wearing will do as well!
LEG LENGTHENING DENIM:
These flares are by Anine Bing and they will make your legs look crazy long because of the slit at the ankle! They are super comfortable and the fact that the slit is at the front of the ankle instead of at the side gives them a little something extra. I find they run a bit small so be sure to size up one size – I’m wearing a size 25.

VERSATILE BOMBER JACKET:
Bomber jackets are not only a wardrobe basic we swear by, but they are also trending for 2022; So this bomber jacket is a double threat! I personally love them because they are so versatile. You can dress them up or down and they always look good. My jacket is by Alice & Olivia and I’m wearing an XS.
This budget friendly version from Levi’s is a great dupe for the jacket I’m wearing. This faux-leather jacket comes complete with roomy patch pockets, a sharp point collar and elasticized cuffs and hem for comfort. It’s a great opportunity to snatch up a wardrobe basic we swear by for a fantastic price point.
MIXED METAL CHAIN NECKLACE:
I literally wear my mixed metal gold chain necklace from Saint Laurent with ALL of my looks almost every single day. That is why I’m classifying it as a wardrobe essential. It’s guaranteed to elevate all of your looks, all year round!
The Tori Cuban Chain Choker Necklace from SHYMI is a really great budget-friendly version of the choker I’m wearing. The lighter tone is more pronounced which opens up more options to mix and match metal tones within your look. The price point is fabulous at around $150 and it often goes on sale, so be sure to keep an eye out for a great deal on the final wardrobe basic we swear by!
