The start of a new year has me thinking about my current wardrobe. As I mentioned in this post one of my resolutions this year is to “shop smarter.” In order to do this it’s important to have a good idea what basics you have and what  you should add to maximize your closet. Before you buy anything new it’s a good idea to think of multiple ways you could style it. When I do that I always end up wearing the piece more and keeping it longer. Many of them have become my wardrobe staples.

I’m sharing some staples below broken down into categories. To me a staple is something you can easily mix and match throughout your wardrobe, each one of these pieces could be styled so many different ways and in every single season. If you’re struggling to build and maximize your wardrobe, hopefully this will help to point you in the right direction.
