Splurge, Save, Steal – 10 Closet Essentials

Splurge Save Steal

For most of us, our closets are built on essentials that help define our style and act as the base to majority of our outfits. A good pair of jeans, a coat, a structured shirt/blouse, easy tee’s, ballet flats, a statement bag – the list goes on. But having boring basics can get old so I’ve rounded up a list of 30 essentials with some flare to help you spruce up your wardrobe for 2014. When you put together all of the splurgesave or steal items, it’s easy to see an outfit come to life!
