Accessories can turn any outfit from boring to exciting instantly and you end up getting much more wear out of them than clothing because you can repeat them with many outfits. Jeans, white t-shirts, black pants, and blazers are all wardrobe essentials and these accessories will quickly become basics in your closet.


Mules transition beautifully between seasons, whether it’s a closed one for winter or a sandal style for the summer, there are many options for all types of weather. For some added height, try one with a block heel.

Gold Jewelry

Take a t-shirt and jeans up a level by layering some gold necklaces and throwing on a pair of gold hoops. Chunky gold chains are super trendy and we don’t expect them to go anywhere anytime soon.

Tortoiseshell Sunglasses

These sunglasses go with any outfit, just choose a shape that works for you. Invest in one good pair and they’ll last you all season long and for seasons to come.

Flap Shoulder Bag

Inspired by the Chanel classic quilted flap bag, shoulder bags can easily transition from day to night and they’ll quickly become your go-to bag. Choose one in a neutral shade to match all of your outfits.

Classic Leather Belt

Belts can fix any outfit—they take an oversized dress and transform it into a flattery silhouette and they make oversized mom jeans look chic. Simple leather belts in brown or black will get tons of use in your wardrobe.
