Pieces you can style over and over in so may ways, and watch them transform your every day style into something that makes you feel pretty and powerful are the workhorses you want in your closet. We’ll walk you through your must-have staples and how to style them everyday no matter what is on your agenda. Now more than ever, we need more mileage out of our closets.
STAPLE NO. 1 – WHITE DENIM
White denim makes a statement while pairing with virtually any color, even white itself. It’s a classic and commanding look that turns heads and is your perfect spring go to. It is fresh, crisp, and clean. Paired with your favorite tennis shoes, chic booties, a classic pump, or even your wellies on those rainy days, white jeans are THE staple that works with anything and everything over the next several months.
KF Tip ~ Don’t wait for spring weather to break them out. Nothing looks more chic than a girl in all white on a crisp winter day.
Basic closet staples obviously don’t mean boring. A classic white denim will always take your look to the next level.
Interesting stitching or a raw, cropped, or slitted hemline makes all the difference to create that little something extra to take your wardrobe to the next level.
STAPLE NO. 2 – SWEATER
We love a good sweater, especially ones like our Fifth Avenue Sweater and our Skyline Sweater. They are classic but have details that make them fabulous! So easy to style and to wear, this sweater is the perfect addition to your wardrobe.
KF Tip ~ When choosing staple items, go for classic necklines and a longer length. Trendy touches like cropped pieces look fab now, but may not be great every season and aren’t as easily restyled.
STAPLE NO. 3 – JOGGERS
Joggers have seamlessly transitioned themselves into our closets over the last year and for good reason. They are sweatpants with pizzaz! Easy to wear running errands, with a killer pair of heels, or just while you are chilling at home makes them your biggest asset because of their versatility.
If you’re not sure which joggers are best paired with heels, you can’t go wrong with a classic, tailored solid. Kathy Fielder Boutique’s new Leather Together Jogger. is simply fabulous! It’s a classic white pant with a surprise leather piping detail down the side. Not only does this elongate the leg, but keeps it subtle and universal as a neutral, not to mention looks absolutely refined.
STAPLE NO. 4 – NEUTRAL BLOUSE
Having a white and a black blouse you love is key for a well rounded closet. There’s not much you can’t do with these two pieces. They go with virtually everything and are easily paired with jeans, skirts, shorts, or pants.. you name it.
A blouse with a large menswear inspired cuff, looks oh so polished, while a silkier material brings in that feminine feel.
KF Tip ~ Pushing your sleeves 3/4 the way up your arm adds a slimming effect and transforms your top for a new look.
A flattering, perfectly draped v-neckline elongates the neck and chest area to create elegant lines that are sexy, but not too revealing. Pair a cami, bandeau or bralette underneath for extra coverage.
STAPLE NO. 5 – BLACK SKIRT
A black skirt with a bit of flair is always fun, and can be reworn just as easy as a simple skirt can. We love our vegan leather Dance The Night Away skirt. The draped front elongates the leg and the belted waist cinches you in for a flattering silhouette. This skirt is the statement staple, and you can pair it with virtually any top, bodysuit or sweater. It’s a must-have.
That being said, a simple black skirt is always a good call. Clean lines in a flattering fabric… you will always find yourself reaching for it.
We love pairing a skirt with a tee, or more casual top for a sporty + cute look, all the while keeping you comfortable with tons of style.
STAPLE NO. 6 – BLAZER
Blazers will never go out of style. An outerwear staple, a blazer can be used to amplify your look beyond what a coat can do. Not only is It functional, a blazer is quite frankly always fashionable. For chillier days, it adds a little bit of warmth when paired with a sweater. On warmer spring days, it is breathable enough to keep you comfortable while you look put-together and chic.
A white blazer for the spring and summer is an absolute must. Pair it with the white denim for a fab monochromatic look or your fave pair of jeans. You can never go wrong.
