Happy Monday! I hope that your week if off to an incredible start! Recently, I helped a sweet person take a wardrobe inventory and think about how to add a bit of pizzazz to basic wardrobe pieces such as classic velvet blazers and crewneck sweaters. We talked a lot about how to elevate classic pieces with accessories, fun pops of color, and unique shoes. The entire process made me think about the wardrobe basics that I love the most. So, today, I am sharing two classic and incredibly versatile pieces that I think are great wardrobe basics/builders. The J. Crew Juliette Collarless Sweater-Blazer is a wardrobe must-have in my opinion. The sweater is SOOOO flattering and it pairs well with jeans, dress pants, skirts, or as a layering piece over a dress. The collarless neckline allows you to wear the sweater-blazer with a graphic t-shirt or a shirt with a collar. This sweater-blazer is hands down one of my favorite pieces. It’s offered in a variety of neutral colors including black, navy, ivory, and heather charcoal. In terms of sizing, I recommend sizing down. I am typically a size XL, but I take this blazer in size medium.
Here is an image of me styling the blazer with another one of my key wardrobe pieces, a great pair of jeans. I was super skeptical about trying the J. Crew Demi-Boot crop jeans because I was concerned that the leg opening would not flatter my body type. I was SOOOOO wrong. These jeans are the BEST jeans, EVER. Hands down, the BEST! I am wearing the “Cool Shadow Wash” in the image below. I cannot recommend these jeans enough. Fit is TTS; I am wearing the size 32.
Here is an image featuring two of the pieces that I think are key wardrobe staples:
I love the leg opening and the hemline on this jeans because it shows off the boots I am wearing! And, I LOVEEEE these fabulous boots. The boots fit TTS.
