Closet Classics

Closet Classics can be interpreted in many ways. I’m going to share mine with you- giving you tips for the basics so you can build a long lasting wardrobe.

There is something so refined about the new classic. It also offers you free range to accessorize however you would like. Adding a great bold or oversized bag, a beautiful diamond necklace, wonderful bracelets and rings. It is in those details that you make a classic outfit a YOU outfit.

Classic wardrobe items don’t mean you have to lack personality or break the bank. While I do think it’s important you invest in a few keys pieces that could last a lifetime – I don’t encourage springing for that $300 dollar t-shirt. I’ll keep this simple and give you a few visual notes. Easy reading for your Sunday morning.

 Brands like Everlane – Madewell – Joseph – Theory …                                                                         J. Crew, Aritzia can help you achieve the classic look I am talking about at an affordable and fashion rate.

**Classic pieces need to fit well though, which is why I always say “befriend a tailor!”**
