Today’s post is in response to a request that I LOVED getting.
What are the essentials every woman needs in her closet?
Such a great question. I see this topic in magazines every month, yet it always feels way too broad or too sophisticated for my taste. So here’s a list of my essentials with the touch of edge that I personally can’t be without. Whether you opt for more classic variations or ones with even more edge, these are the must haves for a well-balanced wardrobe.

1. White Silk Blouse
Light and flowy, this shirt looks good with a messy front tuck and jeans or layered over a long tank and leggings.
2. Leather Jacket
Perfect with leggings and boots or a pop-of-color dress, a tough-luxe leather jacket is a must.
3. Boyfriend Blazer
I love the cut of this laid-back piece. Roll up the sleeves to show the fun animal-print lining or leave them down when you’re feeling a bit more polished.
4. Skinny Jeans
Hands-down the softest and best-fitting jeans I’ve ever owned… The ankle has an actual skinny fit unlike some other “skinny” jeans, and they’re so comfortable I’d even wear them on a plane.
5. Little Party Dress
Extremely more impactful than the tried-and-true LBD, the Little Party Dress is bright, flattering and perfect for any event.
6. Flat Boots
Ideal for all-day style, these boots go the extra mile with shiny gold-tone hardware.
7. Aviator Sunnies
The go-to pair for every off-duty look.
Can’t. Live. Without.
9. Day Bag
Large enough to store all the goodies you schlep around during the day, wear this bag as a cross-body for hands-free convenience, or tote it by the top handle for a more posh finish.
10. Evening Clutch
A must for evening affairs, play up the gold shine with matching jewelry.
11. Cap-Toe Pumps
So much more fun than basic black pumps, this cap-toe pair has a fashion-forward touch.
12. Gold Chain Necklace
Dress up a tee and jeans look or put the final finish on a nighttime ensemble with a long gold necklace.
