Closet staples under $50

Hi everyone!  As I have said before, I am all about maximizing the items in my wardrobe.  If I find an item that can be worn multiple seasons throughout the year, I am all in! And if it is affordable, even better!  I have rounded up some closet staples that I regularly reach for in my closet. And, they are all under $50, so they won't break the bank!

If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen this tunic a few times.  It is a great basic, comes in a bunch of colors, runs true to size and is under $30.  It is long enough to wear with leggings and you can also tuck it in with jeans or even shorts or a skirt.  It is light weight, so I will wear it under a jacket or cardigan when it is cold, and by itself in the warmer months.  I have more of these tunics than I care to admit, but with the flattering fit and affordable price, you can't go wrong!

Another item I reach for in my closet all year round is this pair of distressed jeans.  They have the perfect amount of stretch and are really soft.  These jeans run true to size for me.  If you don't like distressing on your jeans, you can get a non-distressed pair with the same fit here.  Also, I throw them in the dryer and they don't shrink, so that is another plus in my book!  They are priced around $40 and are sometimes on sale for even less.

There is a new closet staple in my wardrobe lately, and that is the slip on sneaker.  If you do not own a pair of these, what are you waiting for?!?  They are so comfortable, and cute too!  I wear mine with jeans all the time and as it gets warmer, I will wear them with shorts and casual dresses.  You can find slip on sneakers in so many colors and styles and there lots of options well under $50.  Both styles I am wearing above are priced under $30.

The last item that I wear ALL this time is this v-neck cami I have styled under a cardigan.  It isn't see-through and the v-neck isn't too low.  I wear these in the fall and winter under cardigans and by themselves when it is warmer.  The cami is $39 and comes in several colors.

Before I go, I wanted to share two of my go-to accessories in my closet.  The first item is tassel earrings!  They come in all colors and instantly add some extra style to whatever you are wearing.  You can find so many options under $40.  A few of my favorites are here, here and here.  The second accessory I wear all year round is the leopard scarf you see in the top photo of this post.  It only costs $19 (with free shipping) and goes with so much!  You can find it here.

These items are some of my most worn and are so easy to throw on and still look put together.  You will notice in the photo at the top of this post, I am wearing several items I talked about here.  If you have any questions about any of the basics I have shared, feel free to comment below or send me an email. Thanks so much for reading Smart Southern Style!
