Four Style Tips for Building a Wardrobe

Today, I am sharing four STYLE tips to make the most of what you buy and wear. 

1. Buy classic STAPLES.
I am trying to shop more for quality, staple pieces that I will wear for several years. One of my favorite wardrobe staples is my leather moto jacket. I have owned if for a few years, and I wear it year-round.  In the spring, I layer it over short sleeve tees, and the winter I layer a fur vest or blanket scarf over it for extra warmth.

2. Buy items to MIX & MATCH.
I try to buy items that I can mix and match with other items in my closet - so that I get the most wear out of them.  My grey jeans are probably one of my most versatile jeans.  I recently shared in this post how to wear grey jeans 5 different ways.

3. Invest in QUALITY Pieces.
I like to buy designer jeans.  To me, they are an investment that I will have for many years.  They are my splurge; but when it comes to buying designer jeans, I do not pay full price. I shop around, and I only buy them when they are on sale.  Two of my favorite places to buy designer jeans for under $100 are Saks Off Fifth and Last Call Neiman Marcus.

4. Add a POP of color.
I believe adding a pop of color, like red to any looks makes a statement.  It stands out.  If you do not like red, you can always opt for orange or yellow, or even a blue or green.
1. Turtleneck: J. Crew (Similar option) // 2. Sunglasses: Prada (25% off)
3. Sweater Dress: Joe Fresh (Under $50) // 4. Jeans: Topshop (On sale $40)
5. Coat: J. Crew // 6. Bag: Michael Kors // 7. Bootie: Nine West
8. Rollerball Trio: Estee Lauder // 9. Boots: Hunter
