Laura's Style 10 Wardrobe Essentials........Each piece is under $100!!!!!

Here they are!!!!! The 10 pieces that you absolutely must have hanging in your closet ready and waiting. You will find that you will mix and match these with so many different pieces in your closet so they are well worth the $$$. Oh but wait a minute.........here is the best part.........EACH OF THESE PIECES ARE UNDER $100! Believe me, it wasn't easy to find items under $100. Clothes are pricey nowadays and spending money like crazy has gone waaayyyy out of style. Dreaming is always good though. And it doesn't mean that you can't splurge once in a great while. So, I will say no more. Here are my 10 wardrobe essentials: 1~ A little black dress with a sleeve is a must. Whether you are going dressy or casual, this is something you will always reach for. You can layer a blazer over it, wear it with heels, wear it with flats, and because it has a little bit of a sleeve it will be so much more comfortable and look so much nicer than sleeveless. Also, most ladys are not allowed to wear sleeveless to the office. Here is one solution to that problem! This one is from Ann Taylor LOFT and it's $89.

2~ Another wardrobe essential is a boyfriend cardigan. It's longer style makes it very versatile. You can wear it open and casual layered over a tee or tank like this model, layer a blouse under it with a dressier pair of trousers, or even belt it with a wide or a thin belt. It's up to you how you wear it and with what, but I am telling you that it's a staple. This one pictured here is from Delia's and it is $39.50:-)

3~ A cross body bag like this one is super chic and can be worn with almost every outfit. This one is by Oasis and it is $83

4~This is one of my favorite pieces because I LOVE anything that sparkles. Wear this with jeans and a biker jacket for that edgy look. Wear it with a pencil skirt to look more cocktail party. This one is from Forever 21 and it's $19.80.

5~ Everyone needs a big bold chunky ring to make a statement. I LOVE this Sterling silver oxidized flower ring by Silpada $82.

6~ A pair of slightly dressier khaki trousers is something you will want to have on hand. They will make a simple tee look great and they will also look great with a blazer for the office. These are the City Essential Flare Leg Pants from Ann Taylor Loft $69.50.

7~ A kitten heel will go with anything from jeans to khakis to that little black dress, and you won't kill yourself in them! Everyone needs just a little heel to elongate the leg and lets face it, everyone looks better in heels. The sleekness of this shoe makes it so stylish and chic. This one pictured is from Nine West $69.

8~ A super cool wear with everything blazer like this one from American Eagle for $59 is an item you will find yourself grabbing almost every day. Wear it with jeans, khakis, or through it on over that little black dress.

9~ Everyone needs a crisp white blouse in their wardrobe. We all know that. But I think that everyone needs a little color now and then and this wrinkle resistant blouse in rhododendron from Talbots for $69.50 gives you just that. COLOR:-)

10~ Last but definitely not least everyone must have at least one pair of dark denim boot leg jeans in their wardrobe. Yes, we all are loving the new skinny leg jean styles and there are so many jeans that come in many faded washes, but these ones from Jeanswest are $65 and their dark color and boot leg make them look fabulous on everyone and they go with anything!
