Beautiful Basics To Add To Your Wardrobe

Invest in these key pieces to update your wardrobe and keep your style classic and effortless.

Whether you throw it on to make a feminine dress edgier or style up your go-to blue jeans, the leather jacket is a staple. This  Nicole Miller moto ($560, from Feng) could have come straight from Kate Moss’ closet.

Dainty jewelry is the perfect purchase thanks to its easy cost-to-wear ratio. This Janesko gold bar ($95) goes with anything and everything.

Infused with beeswax and vitamins E and C, Bobbi Brown’s lip color in red ($26, from Halls) is the ultimate shade. Throw it on to add a pop of color to your day.

Stop coveting French women’s effortless style and start replicating it. What better piece of French fashion to incorporate into your closet than a classic striped dress from Veronica Beard ($495, from Standard Style)?

Every woman needs a little black dress. Update the classic look with a modern, relaxed shape (Red 23 dress, $158, from Dress Head).

The ultimate investment is a cozy fur coat, and it’s easy to see why. This raccoon fur jacket will add flair to any outfit (on sale for $999, from Alaskan Fur).

A boxy tote is the perfect companion for the workaholics of the world—you can fit your computer and other necessities in this Rebecca Minkoff bag ($265, from Halls), but it’s a far cry from a boring briefcase.

A pencil skirt can go a long way in a wardrobe. Assuming you already own a basic black version, opt for this bold orange design ($110, from J.Crew), and pair it with a button up for work or a leather jacket to spice up the look.

Nothing adds old-fashioned glitz and glamor to an ensemble like a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings. These Tacori sparklers (price available upon request, from Mazzarese) go from day to night effortlessly and are guaranteed to match every item in your closet.
