Hi guys! Welcome to ZoeVogue! As you know this fashion blog focuses a lot on street style so today’s post is on 25 street style closet staples you can add to your closet to help you put together chic outfits inspired by street style. So without further ado, let’s get into it!
25 Street Style Closet Staples
I’ve compiled a list of 25 pieces that I believe every chic woman could have in her wardrobe in order to put together street style looks. This list doesn’t mean you have to go buy everything or spend all your money. It’s mainly just for inspiration to help you see what you already have in your closet that you never considered before that could actually make some statement-making outfits and as a guide on what you could add to your next shopping list.
1. Ankle Boots
Whether they are the classic Chelsea boot or on-trend sock boot, ankle boots are the perfect shoe, in my opinion as a fashion blogger, that brings your outfit together in a way that’s both casual and cute that no sneaker or heel could ever do.
The better fashion accessory. It adds mystery and glamour to your look.
3. Long Statement jacket
Long statement jackets are a street style staple. When wearing a top and skinny jeans throw over a light duster or heavy wool and you’re instantly street style fabulous.
4. Midi Skirt
Mini skirts come in and out of style as do midi skirts, but midi skirts do a better job of giving you that demure and professional yet fashionable look
5.Black Skinny Jeans
Wear them with a t-shirt a floral blouse they are the essentials essential
6. White Tee
7. High-end Bag
It’s not necessary to go out and purchase a 1000$ handbag, however, you do want to invest in a nice quality bag because it will elevate all your outfits and last you a good while
8. Leather Trousers
The more luxe and sophisticated counterpart to a black jean. When you don’t feel like wearing your jeans, swap it out for a change in texture
9. Trendy Hat
This year, everyone’s wearing baker boy hats, before it was baseball caps, and before that floppy wide hats, whatever the hat trend is, it’s very inexpensive to jump in on the trend and top your outfit with the latest of the moment hat.
10. Oversize Button Down
One of my personal favs. It’s important to have button downs that fit you well but have one or two that are a couple sizes too big to wear as dresses or tuck in loosely in jeans.
11. Lightwash Jeans
There’s something about light wash jeans that look good with any outfit.
12. Statement Earrings
Make sure to have a pair of statement earrings not just for those special occasions but for when your basic everyday outfit could use a little extra oomph. It would go perfectly with an updo hairstyle as well
13. Leather Jacket

14. Knee High Boots
knee high and especially over the knee boots have quickly become a street style staple for a good reason, they keep your legs warm and add interest to an otherwise average outfit

15. Ruffle or lacy Dress
I think it’s important to have at least one fun ruffle dress, whether that’s ruffles on the sleeves or hemline or if it’s short or a maxi. Having an extra girly piece will help you create outfits that juxtapose and are interesting like pairing it with a leather jacket or sneakers.
16. White and Black Turtlenecks
All these statement shoes, earrings, and jackets need something to make them look better.
17. Track Pants
In the past, I’ve talked about the athleisure trend and how a street style staple is mixing luxury with leisure. Pair with heels or cute white sneakers, tie a t-shirt around your waist topping the look with a trendy hat, statement coat and sunnies and you’ve got your outfit. It’s the perfect way to stay comfy but looks chic.
18. Fur Coat
It’s extra, it’s cozy, it’s fabulous. What’s not to love. Definite street style closet staples.
19. Denim Jacket
The perfect outerwear, dress down any look and the light wash blue denim goes beautifully with other neutrals like black white and camel.
20. Delicate Gold Necklaces
Simple gold necklaces complete your look without detracting from your statement pieces.
21. Wide Leg Jeans or Pants
It’s no secret that skinny jeans are THE pant, but every fashion girl knows that good wide-leg trousers or jeans are just what an outfit needs to go from onlooker to insider.
22. Camel Coat
Another one of my personal favorites, a camel colored coat or even a blazer is a street style staple because it’s a classic piece. And it’s another neutral option to throw in with your black and whites.
23. Sharp Slightly Oversize Blazer
I think everyone should have a good blazer that fits them (same as the button down shirts) but once again something about having a slightly oversize fits makes it street style perfect. It must have something to do with it being slightly less put together, and one thing you don’t want to look like as a street style star is a try hard

24. Running Shoes
Again with the athleisure, you can’t run around in heels all the time, so it’s a good thing sneaker are considered street style closet staples now. choose a classic white Adidas, or pick out a fun color of your choice. The cool think about today’s fashion is that there are so many stylish sneakers out there to choose from, the possibilities are endless.
25. Bold Color
Whether that will be in a layering t-shirt, statement, coat, purse, or bootie, break up your neutrals with something in a bold color to help bring that brightness and life to your outfits
