We all know the basics: our trusty shirt, our dependable flats, our reliable jeans, and all that. However, this article is not about those. Every girl most probably owns all the aforementioned basic pieces. But not every girl has all the “chic staples” or what every true fashionista should have in their closet.
So what’s the difference between the ordinary wardrobe staples and chic staples? Well, let’s just say the former is all about practicality, while the latter is about just being simply fabulous. Now, I’m going to be listing down glam pieces, which I think are essential to my styling needs. But keep in mind that you should be making your own list, which, of course, should be based in your own personality and tastes. You may or may not agree with all the stuff I’ve listed here, but what the heck, I’m gonna list them anyway.
So without further ado, here are the chic staples a.k.a the fab items I can’t live without:
Chic Staples #1: Little Black Dress
This is something every girl should really have. The only difference is the style of the LBD we’re going for. As for me, I’m going with a simple yet elegant one like the one in the picture above. Many would probably choose something more versatile—something your can both dress up with a pair of heels or dress down with sneakers. I must say that’s a good choice, but I’m gonna stick with something more elegant and classy. My reasons? One name: Audrey Hepburn.
Chic Staples #2: Form-Fitting Jeans
Investing in a pair of reliable jeans is always going to be a darn good move. From just doing your errands at the supermarket to a casual date with your SO, a good pair will always be the best way to go. But like I said, this list isn’t just about practicality. In this list, we’ll always have to consider being glam. So with that in mind, I’m choosing this pair of form-fitting jeans. Why? Just look at the picture above and it’ll answer your question.
Chic Staples #3: Camisole
You can wear this as a regular top on its own and you’ll definitely look sizzling hot. You can also wear this as an inner wear whenever you’re thinking of wearing something see-though. Either way, it’s going to be fabulous. Furthermore, you can wear it as a regular top and wear a jacket, blazer, or a cardigan over it. Definitely a great addition to your chic staples that’ll redefine your layering essentials.
Chic Staples #4: Plain Black Leggings
You’re probably thinking: Why is this obviously basic and plain piece included in a chic staples list? My answer would be: Imagine what you can build around this standard piece of clothing. Just think of it this way, you’re an artist and these plain leggings are your blank canvas. You can practically create any looks you’d want. Now, if that’s not chic, I don’t know what is.
Chic Staples #5: Killer Heels
These stilettos may feel like the death of our toes but like I said, this list is not about comfort. Yup, this pair is definitely a killer—you’re gonna be slaying every party, dates, and other social events you’re going to.
