    Wardrobe Basics Checklist:

    • Skinny Jeans
    • Nude Pumps or Black pumps
    • Camel Coat
    • White Oversized Blouse
    • A bold belt
    • Striped Shirt
    • Clutch
    • Turtleneck Jumper
    • Simple Cardigan
    • Black Shopper

     

    • Skinny Jeans- The foundation to a great wardrobe is a good fitting skinny jean. They should be dark blue, dark grey or black and rather tight. I usually prefer high waisted jeans, because this cut makes your legs seem longer and your waistline smaller. If you let the ankles show, it makes your legs look even longer.
    • Nude or Black Pumps- Nude pumps can look a lot lighter with most outfits which is why we encourage you to go for a pair of nude pumps instead of black. With some outfits, black can look a bit harsh however a black heel is also classic for a lot of outfits (especially going into the holiday season). Also, opt for one with a little cushion and a platform so you can wear them comfortably all day long if necessary. 
    • Camel Coat- A straight cut and slightly oversize coat is essential, during the colder months. Much like the pumps, a camel coat softens up any look with its color and gives your outfits a tailored look. Plus, You can easily turn your look around by wearing a belt. 
    • White button up or oversized blouse- You can wear an oversized button up in many ways making it essential to your wardrobe. You can wear it tucked in to your “perfect jean” or over top. You can also wear it as a dress adding a belt to cinch in the waistline with some thigh high boots the possibilities are endless with this staple piece. 
    • A Bold Belt- Speaking of belts, a bold belt can be worn with almost any item in your closet. Investing in this staple statement accessory, makes this item a must! Use for a slightly oversized dress, a white button up like we discussed previously, your camel coat, or just add it to your jeans as to make your outfit pop! 
    • Striped shirt- I know I know we’ve been shying away from strips because of its bad connotations but a striped shirt doesn’t have to be all bad! Stripes are the perfect basis for an outfit featuring various patterns, especially in combination with leopard print. Check this out: Striped shirt, camel coat, nude pumps and skinny jeans BOOM on outfit! 
    • Clutch- Having A clutch with just enough space to hold your essentials (phone, money, ID, ETC) is an important staple piece. You’ll want one that big enough for work but also small enough for your evening activities. Of course the colors nude, beige and black go with everything! 

     

     

    • Simple Cardigan-plain cardigan goes well with almost every outfit and covers up potential problematic areas. You can wear cardigans open, but you could also wear it closed with a studded belt – a perfect alternative for a shirt or a blouse, for instance.
    • Black Tote Bag – A black tote provides enough space for your usual stuff as well as for your MacBook or Ipad and other office utensils. You could choose between black or brown but a black one is very low maintenance and you can also find one that’s jazzed up with some fringe or maybe even some embellishment on the straps.
    • A turtleneck- a loose fitted turtleneck shouldn’t be missing from the wardrobe. Go for a simple look and color that can be worn in the office, at home or on the street.

  • Rules are meant to be broken! Wear your White after Labor Day!

    I’m sure we’ve all heard that old saying “No white after labor day”. The history: In the late 19th century the society ladies were engaged in an invisible battle with the nouveau riche, one that could only be won by the subtle manipulation of fashion.  According to Valerie Steele, director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, in an interview with Time, “It [was] insiders trying to keep other people out, and outsiders trying to climb in by proving they know the rules.” Some etiquette authorities rebuff this class theory, however, regardless of how this theory came about, there’s on thing I think we can all agreed on, there is no need for us to still be following this rule in 2019. So in this blog, we’re going to walk you through how to wear your white year round.

     

    Invest in a pair of chic white booties- I know we all love to bring out those crisp white sneakers in the summer months. While we know you may have put them into hibernation, we hope you have had this upgrade in your queue. White booties are the perfect pair to your fall outfit. They can be paired with a cozy sweater and jeans, a sexy body con dress or even a chill and laid-back set.

     

    Your classic button down is your best friend- One thing is for sure, we all have that classic white button up in our closet and if you work in an office setting, you’re most likely wearing them frequently. You can continue to wear your classic button up outside of the office in the colder months by layering them over a classic t-shirt, wearing it under your favorite cozy sweater or you can wear it underneath your favorite camel coat for a night out on the town as the temperature starts to drop!

     

    There’s nothing like a clean white turtleneck- A white turtleneck not only says “HELLO FALL” but it shows your chic side. A white turtleneck can make you look like you’ve just came off the Chanel runway! Pair a white turtleneck with cognac accessories or your favorite pair of bootcut jeans.

    Contrast your white bottoms with fall colored tops- There’s no need to put away your white pants just yet! Contrast your white pants with fall cozy sweaters. You can create and ombre effect by wearing an ivory or beige sweater

    Break up your white with dark tones like black- Have plans to wear all white? No problem! Break up your all white looks with hint of black tones such as a black scarf, a black belt, or a black vest! Bringing in the contrast will make your look less springy and more fall!
