The Staples

A carpenter needs tools. A painter needs brushes. In the same vein a fashionista needs her staples; her go-tos. Those "must have in your closet at all times" type of clothes  Those under appreciated,  over worked, incredibly wearable items that keep you from screaming "I have nothing to wear!" in the five minutes before you leave the house for work, or dinner, or a gossip session at your best friend's house. They are simple and stylish, and a must have staple in your closet all year round.

So, we start our weekly featurette with the unsung hero of our staple wardrobe: The White Button-up. 

Perfect for dressing up or down. Versatile enough to lunch it-up business style, wear shopping on a Sunday, or hit the town on the weekend, the white button-up is like a chameleon in it's ability to blend in.

Dress it up, or dress it down, there is nothing that you can't do with one.

  Pair this staple with a vest to make it pop. Roll up the sleeves and wear with a pair of jeans, and your Sunday shopping just got a whole lot more stylish! 

Melanie Lyne, $95.00 

Melanie Lyne offers up a tailored and crisp white button up; surely a staple for any closet. 

Le Chateau, $59.95

Melanie Lyne, $110.00 

One of the hottest and most wearable trends, a suitable to become a closet staple along the lines of the tailor white Oxford, is the white tunic. Shapeless or shear; flowing, or uniform, the tunic is here in a big way. Wear it to the office, out to dinner, or any where really! It's stylish enough to turn heads, but blends seamlessly into your wardrobe. It's the type of shirt that commands compliments, but won't be noticeable when you wear it to practically everything. 

So fill up you closet, stock up on staples, and check out these finds and more in store at Midtown Plaza!
