Fashion Tip: Every Closet needs…

Two pairs of dark slacks – either black or navy blue. Go with a slim cut in a wool crepe or a season-less cotton.

One pair of dark slacks for the evening with a fuller cut. These can be a fabric that drapes either a light wool or jersey mix.

Two pairs of jeans -one hemmed for heels and the other hemmed for flats. Jeans that are hemmed for heels you should see just the toe box.

Three skirts – a pencil skirt, a A-line skirt which incidentally looks good on all body types and a skirt in a neutral fabric so you can mix and match with others items like tweed, wool or boucle.

Shirts – A white button front shirt and a few t-shirts.

Three sweaters – The fabric should be a lightweight, merino or cashmere.

  • One should be black and match your black trousers.
