12 Fashion Must-Haves for This Year

Yes, trends are fun. But what's more fun is stocking your closet with staples that will carry you throughout 2018, and beyond. I'm all about building a capsule wardrobe of timeless basics, and here are 12 I have on my list to replenish this year:

one // denim

Let's get real: I wear denim most days of the week. That's why quality denim that holds up is so important. This year, I'm investing in a few new denim pieces, like these rag & bone skinny jeans and this Calvin Klein mini skirt.

two // leather

I am a sucker for leather basics I can wear every day, and that take me from work to happy hour to weekends. This Balenciaga card case is calling my name, as is this trusty Cuyana tote I already have in grey. Plus, you can never go wrong with a small leather cross-body.

And, when it comes to shoes, I love a good leather ballet flat (like this scalloped pair from Chloe) and a simple leather strap heel (like these from Rachel Zoe).

three // luxe staples

Things I can never get enough of: a silk blouse, cashmere sweater, or suede booties. Yes, please!

four // sunnies

If you're going to invest in one pair of sunnies for the year, make it something classic from Celine.
