Closet Staples On Sale

sweater (almost sold out, identical here) | jeans (true to size or go up one size for a looser fit, on sale!) | coat (similar, mine is sold out from LOFT) | bag (love this one under $50 here) | sunglasses (also love these under $100) | hat (perfect dupe under $20 on sale!) | boots 

A good striped top and a military-style peacoat are two of my favorite closet staples. These pieces will never be “out of style,” and they’re super easy to wear so many different ways. We get a lot of questions on building a capsule wardrobe, and I would definitely include a striped top and a peacoat in my ideal capsule collection. The key to a capsule wardrobe is investing a little more in each piece so it will last you as long as possible. This coat is a perfect piece to start with (see it in camel on me here) – it was originally $460 and is now $209 (once you add to your cart). I have the camel in XS, but ordered the black in S so I can layer with heavier sweaters if I want – I would say it fits true to size. If you live somewhere with a cold winter, you’ll still get 3 full months of wear out of the coat, and it’s a piece that will honestly last forever – the quality is so good. I always say “buy now, wear later” is the best way to build a wardrobe on a budget (buy key pieces on end-of-season sales). You’ll be thanking yourself in the fall – trust me! If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly coat, I also linked a great option that’s just over $100 above! A few striped staples on sale – this button down, this top (love the black and white stripes), and this turtleneck (not on sale, but a good price). Have a good day! xx
