Stylish Steals: Classic Essentials


Classic essentials you ask? What do they consist of?

To name a few, a dark pair of denim, a few silky t-shirts, a well-cut blazer, editor pants, a go-to pair of office to party heels and of course a little black dress.

This week’s Stylish Steal tries to pull a few of those pieces in and honoring the fact that this is a “steal,” most of these are on sale. This time around we pulled (mostly) from Pittsburgh based Equita which is chock full of pretty things.

I love this organic cotton, ruffled blouse from Oslo based Fin. The site says it’s inspired by Amelia Earhart which is as classic as it gets. On sale for $88.


Want to make even the most classic outfit a little fun? Add a chunky cocktail ring like this owl ring from Alkemie to your outfit. For sale at Juno & Jove for $130


A good pair of jeans is hard to find (Flannery O’Connor would’ve written a book about that had she made it to 2010). These Laurel jeans from Del Forte might just be that pair for you. The relaxed leg jean sits just below your natural waist and is made from light weight 100% organic cotton. On sale for $115.


This Chevron v-neck sweater from Stewart + Brown is another classic piece and would look great on top of the Fin blouse above. Imagine the ruffles oozing out from the V…

On sale for $132.


And oftentimes what pulls an entire outfit together are the shoes and these on trend kickers from Coclico are what makes the whole outfit ooze classic and cool (maybe that owl ring too). At $320 these  shoes will wax classic forever which might be easier to digest with such a large price tag.
