10 Classic Accessories Every Girl Should Own

Let’s talk about online shopping, shall we? There are times that I fall in love with something and buy it straight away for fear that it’ll sell out and I’ll have missed my chance. (That’s the only way these pants found their way to my closet — in two colors.) And when I’m spending my money on impulse buys and offline necessities, it’s actually the classics that fall by the wayside.

Why replace my favorite white t-shirt when this pink bow skirt might sell out at a moment’s notice? I have a hunch that I’m not the only one who shops like this, so I’ve made a list of 10 classic accessories I think every girl should own. It might not be the most colorful list, but it guarantees you’ll have everything you need when you buy something you want.

(1) Monogram necklace (2) Tortoise sunglasses (3) Diamond studs — These are faux but have the same sparkle! (4) Classic wallet (5) Everyday bracelet (6) Pearl studs — These are just $20! (7) Tan bag — I am in love with this shape! (8) Ankle boots (9) Ballet flats — I love my Tory Burch Revas! (10) Everyday watch — This gold and tortoise number is perfect!

What do you think? Anything else we should add to the list?

  1. Great list! Like some of the other ladies here I would add a pashmina for its versatility and warmth. My two most used are plain colors – camel and black. I’ve used them as shawl’s, a scarf, and a makeshift blanket when traveling.

    I noticed that this list seemed to be gold focused. I like to switch between silver and gold. I’d add a thick silver bangle, silver bead necklace, and a delicate silver pendant. My most loved are from Tiffany & Co and Ralph Lauren but you can find similar pieces at any department store.

  2. This list is great – I’m so glad you posted it! I would add a great printed scarf to it, though. A scarf can do a lot to change the look of an outfit!


  3. Great list! Even your specific examples (pictured) are timesless and great quality for an everyday essential.

    I would add a neutral pashmina to the list. Whether worn as a wrap, a big comfy scarf, or secured with a belt over a great blouse, I definitely consider a pashmina one of my staples (especially for traveling).
