Leah dress in silk organza, $198.00 from J.Crew 

The following apparel and accessories can be found in my own closet. These items are appropriate for virtually any everyday situation.

Every closet staple should start with “the little black dress.” This is a classic staple that every girl should have in her closet as a professional, young woman. You never have enough places to wear this dress to. It works perfectly for work with a cardigan, a work event with black or colored pumps, or going out with some great accessories.

Turnlock Shine Key Pouch FA11 D3, $82.00 from Zappos Couture

A bright clutch to brighten up any outfit is key. This one is the perfect size for your cell phone, lip gloss, keys and wallet.

Premium Denim Beacon Bell Canyon Flared Jeans$189.00 from CUSP    

A good pair of jeans in a medium wash that can be dressed up or down is key for a woman’s closet. This wash allows the denim to be very versatile according to the outfit you want to wear. Paige Denim also has great stretch to it for the girl on the go (the name isn’t too bad either).

Sketchy Owl Umbrella$30.00 from Topshop

Umbrellas are necessary for any woman, especially one living in the city with such unforgiving weather. This price is a steal and cute patterns like this let you make it your own.


Knitted Tweedy Boyfriend Cardigan
, $84.00 from Topshop

The cardigan is perfect for lounge wear, work and a nice date. It is cozy, rich and gives you the ultimate “stepped out of bed” look. The mustard color is one of my favorite, and also a great color for the fall season.

These are a few of my favorite things I guess you would say, and they’re definite staples in my own closet. Without them I’d be lost.

What are some of must-haves for your closet?
