Staple Pieces for Women in their 20’s

As a woman enters into her 20’s, her style gradually changes. There might not be a complete style transformation, but the choice of staple pieces and wardrobe essentials certainly takes a turn. These staple pieces are the building blocks of your outfits and literally act as life savers on days when you can’t figure out what outfit to put on!

Here is a list of not 10   but 12 staple pieces for women in their 20’s:



Being that black is naturally a color I gravitate to, this always works for me. A little black dress is a must have no matter what age group you fall into! You can make it work in so many different ways; it’s completely insane and great at the same time.

Skinny Jeans


Whether you want to go casual or formal; skinny jeans are here to save the day! They go with just about everything, which is exactly why they are considered to be a staple piece. You can easily pair them with any kind of shoe or blouse, and voila! You’re good to go.

A Comfy Pair of Basic Black Pumps


I cannot tell you how much a pair of solid, comfortable pair of pumps come in handy! They have proved their worth time and time again. If you are a woman in your 20’s, you need to have at least one pair in your closet! My preference, a classic pointed toe for touch of chic is always awesome. And seriously, a pair of classic pumps can transform and outfit from “blah” to “ok girl! you better werk!”

Strappy Sandals

I absolutely love strappy sandals! They are super elegant and perfect and go with so many different outfits. Scrappy sandals read very feminine and are very versatile to whatever you plan to get into this season. If you don’t a pair already, you need to get them right now!

Denim Jacket 


A denim jacket is the perfect staple to dress up a simple dress or top.  It’s a piece that will never go out of style (hopefully) so definitely keep an eye out for a good denim top, if you don’t already own one.

If you’re no so much into the denim jacket look or feel, you can reach for a print jacket. Honestly, this option, works best for me. If denim isn’t your thing, find out what works best for you.

Graphic Tee

I suggest that you choose a graphic tee that best describes your personality. Something with a lively graphic or a meaningful quote would be great! A graphic tee does not have to be too complex, but has to communicate something about you and what you like.

A Cute Cami

A staple piece to wear under all those sheer blouses you have in your closet. It can also be considered as a great layering piece. They are very inexpensive and pair well with shorts on a super hot daily, or even to lounge in at home.

Cocktail Dress

You never know when you might be invited to a party that requires you to dress up a little more than usual. Make sure to get your hands on something that is not only beautiful, but makes you feel confident while wearing it.

Ballet Flats


On days when I don’t feel like wearing heels, sneakers or sandals, I simply slip into my favorite pair of  flats to give my outfit that simple yet feminine touch it needs. Trust me; they are life saver! They’re are quick and easy to put on. My favorite thing about flats are that often they can easily fit in my purse if I’m on the go, incase I need to do a slight outfit change, especially when i comes to running around in the city.

A Tailored Blazer

Add structure to any outfit with a tailored blazer. Perfect for work and an amazing piece to add a formal and elegant touch to any outfit! I actually own more than one at the moment! Owning varying colors works amazingly!

Button Up Shirt

It’s a shirt that can be worn in a bunch of different ways.  This is a must, especially in white!

An Everyday Cardigan

This piece is not only great to keep you warm on those chilly days or evenings, but is also great for adding a little something extra to your outfit. Time to get rid of all those hoodies you may own!

Classic Clutch

One word: Chic! Big enough to carry all your necessities, unless you’re more of the hoarder type who carries her entire vanity with her no matter what. Perfect accessory for any date.

Designer Hat

This is my favorite. I was never a hat person until this year. A hat will literally make and complete an entire outfit.  If you study the photos, you’ll see how with a hat, the outfits are everything. A hat says a lot about someone and that’s what I love the most. For those who enjoy hats as much as I do, I commend, because really it’s never that simple especially then craftsmanship becomes a factor.
