StyleNotes: Five Pieces Your Closet Needs {Courtesy of The Styled Life}

Courtney Miarka from The Styled Life

Have you ever had the feeling of having a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear?  We have all had that moment standing in front of our closet uttering the words, “What am I going to wear today…”.  In the fight to end the constant wardrobe struggle, there are 5 basic items that I think every closet needs.  (And as the co-owner of a virtual wardrobe styling company, The Styled Life, I’ve seen my fair share of closets.)  All of these items can be shopped right here on Styleshack!  Having these 5 pieces in your closet will help ease the pain when deciding what outfit to wear for your next life event.  Or even what to wear tomorrow.

 A Little Black… One Piece?


Ramy Brook Finn Jumpsuit SHE

You may have heard that every closet needs an LBD- little black dress- but it doesn’t always need to be a dress.  A black one piece jumpsuit can go everywhere a dress can and will get compliments galore because it’s not your ordinary black dress. 

Classic Leather Jacket


 June Classic Leather Jacket Hersh’s Boutique

This classic topper is “seasonless” and adds an edge to whatever outfit you throw it on over.  A leather jacket will last forever if cared for properly and will always look chic.

 Convertible Clutch


Classic Cross Body Clutch Zarkpa’s Boutique

 Our days are busy.  Who has time to change purses when running from a meeting to a night out?  A purse that matches your life, converting from a working messenger to a clutch on the town, is a closet must.


Statement Shoe


MSGM Glitter Strappy Sandals Tender

Classic black pumps are basic.  Take your outfit up a notch with a shoe that gets noticed.  There is no better way to show off your sense of style than with the perfect shoe.

 Conversation Starting Accessory


Khalida Pink Statement Necklace POUND Jewelry

“I love your [insert amazing accessory here]!  Where did you get it?”  We all love talking about the special pieces in our wardrobe.  Adding an accessory that tells a story will always give you something to talk about.
