A timeless wardrobe, anyone?

garance dore

I read this hit list somewhere before but forgot to make a note - saw this again - useful tips from celebrity stylist Karen Ng, on having 12 key items to give 88 different looks in the latest Style: mag. Think of them as building blocks for a coveted timeless wardrobe!
Here it goes.....
  • A sleeveless or racerback tank top as seen at Alexander McQueen and Alexander Wang.
  • A cotton camisole
  • A crisp white button-down shirt (Viktor & Rolf and Commes des Garcons)
  • A black or white slim-fitting suit jacket or blazer that goes well with dresses and separates.
  • Jeans in blue or black. Skin-tight leggings are also good alternatives to jeans.
  • Little black dresses in bustier, sheath and cocktail styles that can be glammed up or dressed down with accessories.
  • A long, flared or short swing skirt in a neutral hue.
  • A floral or printed maxi dress
  • A jumpsuit in a neutral shade
  • Two belts: One that fits the waist and another low-slung version for the hips.
  • Lastly, loads and loads of accessories.

Hey, we have some of them in our online store already, maybe we should source for them all for our customers!
