Over the past few years I’ve started to create a wardrobe filled with timeless, classic pieces that have a slight edge to them. I like to think of them as the elevated classics. Building a solid foundation of the essential pieces has given me the ability to maximize my miniature sized NYC closet space and overall wardrobe. They’re typically investment pieces that I want to last. My style is in one word undefined so I intersperse seasonal trend pieces with the classics to create my look.
This is a modern take on a classic wardrobe staple. I love the unexpected addition of the belted cropped inside, it’s so chic and allows you to stand out in a crowd of Burberry trenches!
A sleek black bag
Everyone should invest in a great structured leather bag. This particular one from Clare V. has the most buttery soft leather and is what I like to refer to as my ‘Mary Poppins’ bag because it holds the world without losing its shape. Crucial for me!
There is nothing more necessary for a wardrobe than a killer black heel. These Dior ones have a “I’ll kick your a$$” heel to them with a patent leather toe, just enough rocker to wear with a leather skirt or enough structure to wear with skinnies and a trench.
A grey sweater
Your wardrobe is not complete if you don’t have a lightweight heather grey sweater. This alpaca one from Zady literally goes with everything and has a relaxed fit to it so that it’s not too stiff!
