Anyone who’s ever read my blog knows I’m a huge advocate of staple pieces. They’re the foundation that my entire wardrobe is built on. For many people, the mere mention of a “fashion staple” brings to mind the LBD (little black dress). And, they’re right. It’s a classic, and in my opinion, no woman should be without one (or maybe two … okay, three, max)!
When I’m considering a staple piece to add to my closet, I always ask myself a couple of questions:
- Is it versatile? Meaning, can it be styled for numerous occasions?
- Is it timeless? In 5-10 years from now, will I run the risk of hearing, ‘I remember when people used to wear that’.
Yes, a fashion staple should be dependable. But, one thing it should never be is unimaginative. That’s why this BCBG dress is one of my absolute favorites! It’s comfortable, flowing and most importantly, it’s not boring.
Staple pieces don’t have to be limited to blues, blacks and browns. With a little imagination, most well-crafted pieces will qualify.
