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.

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.

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.

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.
