Trust the Bones


Time for back-to-basics reality check! It’s like learning the alphabet before writing a book: You can’t skip the fundamentals if you’re trying to build a closet full of great clothes.  Do you have those perfect black wool trousers to take you from a 5:00 pm work meeting into a night out with friends? What shape has your best white shirt been in lately? Is your leather tote still turning heads?  The bones of your wardrobe are those essential timeless pieces, the underpinnings of great style. As Leonardo da Vinci put it “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

The following ten staples transcend the three t’s: time, trends and travel.  They transition from day to night, from winter to summer, and with a little luck, they can still be worn 3 years from now.

  1. The classic white shirt
  2. The little black dress
  3. A cashmere cardigan or turtleneck
  4. A trench coat
  5. Denim
  6. A classic watch
  7. Ballet flats
  8. Black wool trousers
  9. A classic high-heel pump
  10. A great leather bag

 When shopping for these items think classic, basic, quality, reliable.
