1. Leopard Flat- I have worn the heck out of my Snow Leopard TOMS this last year and just picked up a pair of Target leopard ballet flats because this type of shoe is so versatile! This shoe can go with any of the following wardrobe items, as well as with almost any color. They are a great way to add a punch of print to an outfit.
2. Black Mid-weight Scarf- I love a black scarf for almost all seasons. You can pair it with a nautical stripe or floral print in the spring or tweed and textures in the fall and winter. The easiest way to wear one is to pair it with a print that has some note of black or gray in it.
3. Striped Top- The black and white thin striped top has been hot for the last few years. I still love it, but you can go with a navy or even dark brown stripe too. This is a great piece for layering and pattern mixing. Once again you can wear it with all of our staples listed here. Like leopard- this pattern goes with every color so it is seasonless!
4. Fitted Jean Jacket- I will always wear a jean jacket, but these came back onto the mainstream fashion scene last year. They are perfect for colored or printed jeans and cords. You’ll see them with maxi dresses and skirts, shorts, and even yep, even sequins again this year. Choose whatever wash you prefer and as long as you keep it fitted you can’t go wrong.
Any favorite staples you’ll keep wearing out this year? If you have been on the edge, don’t be afraid to take the plunge and invest in at least one of these items in 2013!
