Comfortable classics are a staple. Add a pop of print or an unexpected detail for interest. A good quality pair of black pants should be in every woman’s closet. Mixing and matching gives you so many more options as opposed to dressing in outfits only. A silk blouse paired with Cambio dark denim jeans, completed with a knit biker jacket by Vince is casual, yet sophisticated.
Knits are huge this season. A chunky long cardigan and an oversized scarf with skinny pants is a fresh look. A short tweed fringed cardigan by Autumn Cashmere can be layered with a sleeveless dress or a pair of jeans and tee shirt. Choose what works for your body type.
Our lifestyle is more relaxed than ever before and our clothes must suit that lifestyle. You should be able to dress up or dress down, depending on the occasion.
Accessories are the key to elevating your image from nice to fabulous. Layer a classic sweater with a scarf by Tilo or a necklace by Michelle Ross. Eileen Fisher’s black crepe dress is so versatile, add pearls and a shawl for evening or black tights and flat shoes for daytime. It is important to be flexible with your wardrobe.
“Seasonless” dressing is a hip concept. Mix your pieces up in bold and interesting ways. Comfort is the key. If something doesn’t feel good, you won’t feel good wearing it. Natural fabrics – cotton, silk, linen and cashmere are wear well and feel so luxurious.
Fads come and go, but personal style stands the test of time. Find a boutique and salesperson whose opinion you trust. This will make your shopping experience a positive one.
