There are certain items in one's wardrobe that one can't live without. I wear and wear and wear these essentials to death. Casual basics than any girl must have in their closet arsenal.
The White Sneaker
A good white sneaker makes any outfit look effortless and cool. Whether it's with shorts, a skirt or pair of jeans. While everyone has the classic Adidas Stan Smith (which are great by the way), my favorites are these by Isabel Marant. They are well made, clean and simple, and well French, which doesn't hurt. I have repurchased twice!
Denim is the epicenter of my wardrobe. I am a denim junkie without question. Essentials include a good pair of boyfriend jeans for weekends, slim going-out dark jean in black or coated, a light slim jean (lately I am loving a raw hem), and pair of crisp white jeans for summer.
A sweatshirt is an understated element in one's repertoire. Comfy and cozy with jeans on the weekend, it can also funk up an evening look worn with a leather mini. I personally love a crew neck, but a hoodie style is popular at the moment as well. I am really digging this collab between denim brand Re/Done and Revolve, where they modernize a Champion sweatshirt.
As an Angeleno, sunglasses are a must complete any look. I can't tear myself alway from my aviators as of late, but I love a classic cat eye or an oversized sunnie. One good pair is a must.
The Tote Bag
A classic leather tote bag is functional and fashionable. It doubles as a daily handbag to an easy carry on. I love the ones by Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, Clare Vivier, and Madewell.
