Classic Wardrobe Staples

For today’s look I have combined a few of my classic wardrobe staples for an easy white shirt and jeans outfit.

My Classic Wardrobe Staples

Jeans for me are a wardrobe staple at the moment and I love to wear them most days as the weather has not been warm enough for summer dresses recently. I have a number of pairs of jeans that I wear on rotation with different tops and one of them includes a classic white shirt. I have had this shirt for a long time now and it always looks classic and never dated. As the seasons change, I like to wear ankle boots so these tan coloured ones are perfect for the late summer.

This look is definitely classic style and a look that will never date. To add a small statement to the look I finished it off with a striped bag from Yoshi. The Marty stripe navy and biscuit leather cross body bag is made from Yoshi’s luxury leather and makes a great everyday bag for pairing with classic styles like this outfit here today. I really love the navy and biscuit colour combination with the tan strap that coordinates with the ankle boots.

I hope you like the look and let me know your thoughts below. What are your classic wardrobe staples?

    A white shirt is such a classic piece and so versatile, can be worn in so many ways! I haven’t worn jeans since April since it’s too hot here but I cannot wait to wear them in fall. xx

    Jeans and a shirt for days off, black jeans and a blouse for the office. If I am not wearing a dress to work, that is.

    Definitely jeans and jackets are my staples!! I don’t wear a white blouse as much anymore, because I’ve been obsessed with the prints and sleeve details!!

    Boots, stripes and jeans are classic staples in my closet. i have always liked the idea of button down blouses but I have a large chest and it almost impossible to find one off the rack that fits.


    • Jacquard Flower

      Thanks LaToya, I struggle with that too and most of the time have to size up. Have a great start to your week. x

    This look just goes to show that basics don’t have to be boring! The bag adds pattern while the boots add texture. And a great fitting jean is never boring! Such a stylish and approachable look for transitioning to fall.

    I have been in my jeans non-stop recently too but it’s such a shame that the weather hasn’t been nice enough for summer dresses. I feel like there hasn’t been many opportunities to wear them this year. I couldn’t be without my jeans though and feel like they are just so easy to wear but you can create so many different looks with them ๐Ÿ™‚ x
