5 Wardrobe Pieces Every Millennial Needs in their Closet

As millennial’s, we’re running from work to happy hour to our dinner dates often without being able to go home in the midle.  When time is limited and our style is important, how do we satisfy both?  The key for style success as a millennial involves five key wardrobe pieces.

The Edgy Leather Jacket

Leather jackets are one of the most versatile pieces you can own because they give off a different vibe depending on how you pair them.

The Strapless Bra 

The strapless bra may be your most convenient piece in your wardrobe because it will work with a wide variety of outfits.  In the day of course you’re more than covered, but at night when you want to strip down to your strapless dress, you’ll be covered without those annoying bra straps showing.

Little Black Cocktail Dress

This off-the-shoulder dress is the perfect example of a dress that will make you love the convenience of your strapless bras.  A sweater of jacket can make it more conservative by day.  It’s simple and elegant and can be dressed up with the perfect jewels for an evening out.

The Chunky High-Heeled Bootie

Of course we all want to impress when we say we’ve been wearing our high heels all day from the office to our walk home or to the bar, but who really wants to do it in stilettos?  A chunky high-heeled bootie with a cushy sole and a small platform is a woman’s best friend and best kept secret.

The Baseball Cap

While I’ve never been much of a hat person, I recently found a brown leather baseball cap that has proven to be invaluable to me on many different occasions.

Whether you’re going to a sports game, hiding from the sun, running errands without makeup, or just trying to add some sportiness to your look, a leather baseball cap is a more stylish alternative to the typical sports baseball cap that many guys wear.

Love,
Molly

Wardrobe Staples for any Ultra-Fem Fashionista

It’s no secret that the color pink makes up at least half of my wardrobe.  Between my ever-growing collection of pink handbags and my penchant for buying anything that sparkles, my closet would be the perfect playground for an all-girls elementary school.  Instead of show and tell, they could play dress up.

Every article I read about wardrobe staples, defines them as more “neutral” and “basic.”  But this commonly used definition is an overgeneralization.  A tomboy might live in raglan tees, a sports enthusiast might live in jeans and a jersey.  Different styles should have different staples.

My new favorite wardrobe staple are these light pink chunky heel booties from AMI Clubwear.  A “staple” should be anything that is comfortable enough and versatile enough to wear all the time and match with almost anything!  I wear these booties with skinny pants during the day, and dress them up at night with a little black dress.

In the winter, every wardrobe needs a jacket staple as well.  This year I’ve forgone the long trench coats and have slithered into a collection of leather moto jackets!  This light pink leather jacket from Zara can instantly turn a boring neutral outfit into a statement.

Last but not least, my ring-covered hand will be holding this hot pink leather bag from Danier leather.  After all, combining different shades of pink in one outfit is one of life’s many pleasures.

Special daytime events sometimes call for a touch of conservative style.  That high collar doesn’t have to be boring if the shirt’s got something else going on just like this white long-sleeve peplum top!

Speaking of versatile, sometimes the best wardrobe staples are the ones you would normally overlook upon first glance.  While this V-neck sweater seems plain at first sight, there’s more to the story!  Your wardrobe staples don’t have to be black, white, or grey.  A soft, light blue sweater will do wonders for any woman with blonde to brunette hair.
