Staple Pieces

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

There are a few ‘go to items’ that I find myself constantly wearing. Whether it’s a stand out piece or an everyday must have, these items can be styled up or down.

This is a collaboration post with my friend Leah who just posted a new video featuring me on her youtube channel which you can watch by clicking here! You can watch us further explain these items of ours as well as some more items that I chose.

These items are so easy to dress up or dress down that I find it very easy to throw them on over any outfit.

1. Backpack


Backpacks are the new handbags! They are the essence of street style. I like to wear backpacks when I’m going to the gym, school, or running errands. It’s youthful, convenient, and cute. Ultimately, backpacks can go with any street style outfit. This one is Marc by Marc Jacobs.


3. Slip on Sneakers


Clearly, I’ve worn these shoes one too many times. They are just THAT cute! This is another item sure to finish your street style outfits. Slip on sneakers have made a huge comeback in fashion. Many designers have used the shoe to create interesting and fun patterns. I stuck to black and white because my style is minimalistic and simple. These were found at Zara.

4. Leather Jacket


I’m sure every person and their grandmas have a leather jacket at this point. Leather jackets have been such a popular statement piece, I credit the movie Grease for this. It is so easy to throw on top of any item like a beaten down vintage t-shirt and jeans or a printed dress. It’ll add edginess to any outfit.

As for Leah’s statement pieces..

  1. Stripe top and Celine purse
Leah’s laid back style was taken up a notch with a bold blue and white striped print shirt from asos. She finished the look with her Celine belt bag. Overall, she looks so fashion forward just from these two staple pieces!
2. Maxi Vest
These long vests are becoming very popular in the fashion community. This one Leah is wearing is from Missguided. It is a thin fabric which is perfect for warmer seasons. This one item can turn a simple outfit like leah’s t-shirt and jeans to something that looks like it was worn by someone during NYFW! This is a trending item that you’ll want in your closet.
3. Striped Crop Top
This striped crop top is sure to make a statement. It’s bold print and clean cut shape is modern chic. Having unique tops like these in your wardrobe will be beneficial when you’re searching for something different to pair with black pants or a skirt. This top is from Missguided.
4. White Superga Sneakers
Leah’s white Superga sneakers are a must for her casual and laid back style. She pairs them with many of her outfits. She likes to finish her more formal outfits with them for a more effortless look.
5. Victoria’s Secret Leggings
Victoria’s secret leggings are an absolute must. Their high quality leggings are made with thick fabrics that are sure to keep everything together while you’re working out. These are Leah’s favorite leggings and her go to item when she goes to the gym.
