I'm always talking about closet essentials and how I love my basics. Well, I decided to do a round-up post of 5 basic closet essentials that I feel every girl needs. This is something different but hopefully it will inspire you to invest/purchase some great pieces that will go a long way! You all know I love my casual tees, leather jackets, jeans, jewelry and flats... so, I decided to roundup my absolute FAVORITE pieces in each category below!

Casual tee: There's nothing better than a casual tee. I actually just picked this one up and already ordered it in two more colors! I wear a size small and love how light it is and the cut with semi-frayed edges. I honestly think I wear casual tees the most! I also love this one and actually wear it a lot. Size up for it, though, if you want a slouchy fit. This one also looks so comfortable!

Leather jacket: I love my leather jacket that you can get here. I wear it all of the time and absolutely love it! I got it last year and never really liked any other faux leather jackets until I got this one. Also, I also think a great faux leather jacket in another neutral color besides black is great, too. I love this one! I actually have it in blush and in a blue color. It has a great feminine fit, which you know I love.

Great-fitting jean: I have no shame that I always wear jeans! I absolutely love a great pair of fitting jeans. My favorites are here and here. I actually always wear these and they're so comfortable. I love when jeans feel like leggings but wear like jeans (if that makes sense?). I also absolutely LOVE these. I really rotate between these two. Since a great pair of jeans is a closet essential, I highly recommending splurging on a great pair because they will last you forever.

Flats: I love flats! I'm so picky with flats but I end up wearing them all of the time when I find a pair that's comfortable. You know how much I love my Chloe flats. Yes, they are pricey! But if you knew how many times I wear them throughout the week, you'd know they're worth it. I also have these and they're a great pair for a much more affordable price. Flats are great closet essentials because you can wear them with anything and they're classics.

Statement jewelry: I am all about the statement jewelry. I think dressing up an outfit is essential, most of the time, and you can do that with a great piece of statement jewelry. I think a pair of earrings like these or a statement necklace like this one are both amazing options. I actually just got these earrings as well as these and can't wait to wear them! I've linked some of my favorites for you below. Also, I just got this bracelet and am so obsessed! It is pricey but SO worth it. It's absolutely gorgeous! I haven't taken it off since... oops!
