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.
**Classic pieces need to fit well though, which is why I always say “befriend a tailor!”**
TEN Steps – BELOW!
ONE: the perfect black blazer. *I suggest single-breasted and don’t forget the fit!

THREE: hat with clean lines ( reserved for bad hair days, cold days and sunny days)
FOUR: v-neck t-shirts made of supple cotton in black, grey, white, navy, wine.
FIVE: everyday loafer, everyday sneaker and, of course, the every day heel. these could be white, black, nude, grey… just think neutral so you can throw them on with nearly any and every combination of these basics and more.
SIX: fitted black trouser.
SEVEN: a trench
EIGHT: sleeveless coat *fit is key and don’t be afraid to try a solid color.
NINE: perfect pencil skirt.
TEN: collared button downs in every color you can find.
