I'm convinced you only need these 11 wardrobe staples in order to dress like a Pinterest Girl – plus here's where you can buy them for under $100.

Ladies and gentlemen, I've hacked the code.

I've spent way too many waking hours scrolling through Pinterest admiring clothes thinking about how I can't afford to look as cool as the people on there. Boy, was I wrong. It was only after I actually scrolled through my saved Pins that I noticed there were a helluva lot of double-ups in the outfits I was admiring. That was when I clocked it.

You really only need these 11 staple items to pull off that cool-girl Pinterest look, and not only have I found them, but I've found you options for under $100.

1. Black blazer (bonus points if it's leather)

This is probably the most important item out of the entire list. This black blazer is going to be in the wardrobe nearly every day of the week.

You definitely want to size up to get the over-sized look every Pinterest girl rocks, and you also get bonus points if it's leather.

2. Straight-leg high-waist jeans

If you missed the memo, apparently skinny jeans are now social suicide – well, according to generation Z.

Get yourself a good pair of straight-leg high-waist jeans. They're not only a lot comfier but look good dressed down or up.

3. Black turtleneck

This is an item you likely already own in your wardrobe, but if you don't, please, for all that is holy, get yourself a good quality black turtleneck.

It will be your new best friend during the cooler months and elevates any outfit.

4. White button down

This is another item you probably already own, but if you're like me, it is probably time for a new one.

Again, it's an item that we want to have an over-sized look, and the more rigid the material this shirt is, the better.

5. Shoulder pad tee

I bought one of these in black, and within a week, I went back for it in white and brown. I've already worn it to death.

These shirts are simply chic. They're definitely a big ol' trend this season and pair so easily with everything in your wardrobe.

6. Black knee-high boots

A favourite on this lil' list of mine is black knee-high boots. White boots are a big trend in 2021, but black is a lot more versatile and you will get more wear out of them.

These are literally one of the most flattering pair of shoes you will ever own. They make your legs look ridiculously long, and I'm 5'2" so that's saying something.

7. Neutral-coloured shoulder bag

Similar to the shoulder pad shirts, I bought one of these bad boys in black and then went back for it in a bunch of other colours.

These are a fabulous throwback trend to the 90s and are really easy to work into varying outfit looks.

8. Leather black coat

Probably one of the most important items to get into your wardrobe is a long black leather coat. Yes, we're going full on Matrix vibes.

9. Collared Mini Dress

When Kendall Jenner stepped out wearing one of these bad boys, Pinterest became bombarded with every man and his dog wearing collared mini dresses.

Myself included.

10. Gold jewellery

If there is ever a day where chunky gold jewellery isn't in fashion, just lower me into an early grave. You don't even need a lot to get the look – just some gold hoops and a chunky necklace and you're set.

11. Leather straight leg pants

Okay, okay I know there are three leather items in this article, but I don't make the rules. Pinterest does.

I can, however, speak from experience, and when I wear my leather pants, I'm untouchable. They're incredibly flattering, and you can dress them up with heels or down with sneakers. But whatever you wear them with, you will look fabulous, darling.
