Hello GlamFam!

As we step into 2024, it’s the perfect time to rethink our wardrobes. Forget about trends! This year is all about foundational pieces that are as versatile as they are stylish and accentuate your best features. Welcome to a new year of style and self-expression! In this post, I’m excited to share with you the 5 2024 Closet Staples that will not only elevate your look but also stand the test of time.

STYLE Rx: The MOST IMPORTANT note about each of the 2024 closet staples is the FIT of each piece. Ignore the size tag, and get what fits you like a glove and works for your body shape. Remember that you can get a piece tailored so that it looks like it was made for you. It’s all about your style, your way… so make it piece work for YOU!

FIVE 2024 CLOSET STAPLES THAT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR WARDROBE

1. The Versatile Blazer

A blazer is the quintessential piece that bridges the gap between dressy and casual. It’s perfect as that third piece.* Whether it’s a classic cut for a business meeting or an oversized style for a chic street look, the right blazer can transform any outfit. Remember, the key is in the fit and fabric – choose one that flatters your body and suits your lifestyle. 

*The Rule of Threes: Adding a third piece to your outfit automatically elevates it. 

Remember, this is YOUR style. A more casual alternative would be a denim jacket. I enjoy dressing up so blazers are my preference, and I LOVE vintage ones as the one pictured above. Check out the original post here

2. Statement Accessories

Accessories are the exclamation point of any outfit! This year, remember to add an accessory to your outfit. If you are already an accessory aficionado, then focus on sustainable or vintage pieces that tell a story. A timeless watch, a heritage handbag, or a silk scarf can add that extra oomph to your ensemble making you stand out in the most subtle yet powerful way.

If you know me, then you know that I am ALL ABOUT ACCESSORIES! I love statement accessories and sometimes will start an outfit with the accessory as the focal point.

3. The Perfect Pair of Jeans (or Pants)

Jeans are a staple in most wardrobes, but the perfect pair transcends trends and seasons. Look for a cut that flatters your shape – skinny, straight, bootcut, or wide leg. And if jeans aren’t your thing, a pair of well-tailored trousers in a neutral color can be just as transformative. Whether it’s a high-waisted wide-leg pant or a sleek, straight-leg cut, trousers offer that polished look that can be dressed up or down.

I have TONS of jeans but have been reaching for my trousers more lately. I feel more aligned with my style identity and love the way wide-leg pants make my legs look longer.

4. A Classic White Shirt

There’s nothing more versatile than a classic white shirt. It’s the ultimate blank canvas – tie it up for a playful look, tuck it into a pencil skirt for professionalism, or pair it with denim for timeless appeal. The trick is to find the right fabric and fit that works best for you.

If you NEVER wear white, then switch it out with the color of your choice like black or pink. What colors are in your closet? And what base color would go with all of it?

5. A Bold Midi Dress

A midi dress is the perfect blend of elegance and comfort. Choose a bold print or color to make a statement, and style it differently across seasons – think tights and boots for winter or strappy sandals for summer. It’s a one-piece wonder that can take you from day to night in a snap.

I LOVE pink, and I LOVE cabi so this is the midi dress of my dreams! More on this coming soon!

These five 2024 closet staples are more than just clothing. They’re an investment in your personal style and confidence. 2024 is about making smarter choices, embracing versatility, and building a wardrobe that truly reflects who you are. Happy styling and remember to shop your closet first!
