Back to basics. I believe there are a handful of items that EVERYONE needs in their wardrobes. These are the classics. Find your perfect version and stick with it!
Blue Skinny Jeans
Arguably the most flattering style of jeans, you will wear a blue pair of classic skinny jeans all the time. Get a versatile dark wash with a good fit, a bit of stretch, and a perfect length for your height.
You can wear it on the weekends, out to dinners, to work, on dates, on vacation, pretty much anywhere. A perfectly fitted shirtdress in a classic color will be your go-to dress.
I have built up a collection of solid colored cable knit sweaters that I love and wear frequently. When shopping for a sweater, look for a great quality fabric like wool or cashmere. Always worth investing!
First, make sure that you can walk in them without feeling like your feet are dying. A classic pair of black pumps can elevate an outfit from relaxed to polished in a snap.
Oxford Button Down
Light blue and white oxfords are the essentials, but if you want to build an oxford collection, do it! They are definitely something that you will get your money's worth out of.
I could go maybe two days without wearing my pearls. But that's unlikely. Truth be told, I wear my pearls pretty much every day and I can't wait to pass them on. Mine are vintage, but here's a few.
Stripes pair well with everything and a good striped bateau top is perfect for nailing the ease of Parisian style. I love Boden's breton tops!
A perfect pair of riding boots are essentials for me. I listed my favorites below! Other great pairs of tall boots I have include Sperry Hingham boots and Hunter boots.
A coat always makes you look polished, elegant and chic. Who knows, you could be wearing your pajama top under it and you still look awesome. :-)
