When asked for suggestions on building a timeless chic closet, I always respond with, ‘Invest in the basics… think little black dress, nude patent pumps, the perfect trench.’ As a general rule of thumb, buy the best timeless pieces you can afford (and avoid the keeping up with the jones’ mentality).
What is a timeless piece? If you are in your twenties like me, imagine your mom wearing it. Does she look ridiculous? What if she adds a cardigan to it? Can you imagine your friends remarking how ‘stylish’ she is? Then this piece is timeless.
When it comes to timeless-casual-chic pieces, I turn to Madewell. Not only do they have remarkable quality, they also carry the perfect mix between timeless and trendy for women. They make the decision easy for me. When I fall in love with a high-lo cream-knit sweater, I am confident I can wear this piece for years to come. Not to mention, some days, clothing that covers our behind, but isn’t frumpy, is exactly what we need.
Pairing a loose sweater with baggy bottoms can create a boxy-Annette-From Desperate Housewives look. To avoid the dreaded extra-ten-pounds in pictures illusion, pair your baggy winter white sweater with light-grey skinny jeans. The opposing fits will create a silhouette and leave you feeling great!
Skinny jeans aren’t your favorite? Maybe you haven’t found the right pair yet? The perfect pair of skinny jeans should be a little bit like Spanx. They should hold everything in [and up] but be moveable, which is exactly what happened when I slipped into these Madewell dusty wash jeans. It was almost like I had a fairy god mother. I feel my absolute best in them!
