Saved By The (Red) Bell

Outfit staples typically revolve around a little black dress, monotone blazers, and perfectly fitted jeans. While I agree that these are essentials for every woman, I also believe that there should be staples in your outfit that show your personality.

Have you ever seen a clothing item where you think, "That is so Insert Friend Name Here"? That's the defining situation of someone who embraces their personal style and wears staples with a vision.

One of these items in my closet are my Free People red bell bottoms (Mine are from a previous season but these are similar). As my "go-to" for days when I want to be comfortable yet stylish, they've been dressed up, down and pretty much any way you can imagine. They're even featured in my first outfit post & most recently when Refinery29 shot me for the "How To Work Chambray" feature by Liz.

That's me on Refinery29!
Check out the rest of Liz's My Stylist feature. It's pretty awesome.
I just love their fit, color, material, and ability to complete my self-defined "city girl meets boho chic" vibe in any outfit pairing. Once again, Free People for the win. (I know I toute them a lot, but it's just because I'm a true fan.)

What's an item with personality that is a wardrobe staple of yours?

(PS - I'm participating in Ashley's "Words of Wisdom" week today. Swing by for insight on a little quote that I hope will inspire you.)
