I think we all have a favorite piece or outfit that always seems to work and never lets us down. For me, there is so often a look I want to achieve or a piece of clothing I want to wear, and when I try it, it just doesn’t work. I think this makes those items and looks that do work feel extra special. Here are a few items that are my favorites.
White, button front blouse. Basically a men’s shirt with a feminine cut. It always looks good, no matter what I pair it with. My favorite pairing is with a dark red pencil skirt, though paired with some black faux leather leggings looks pretty good too.
A cardigan sweater. I find these are really nice for smoothing out the mismatch between my shoulders and my hips, and the long sleeves hide my “man hands.”
I have a reddish, brown, faux leather “paper bag” style skirt that looks great with a black long sleeve, ribbed turtle neck. It makes me look like I have hips and it’s so comfortable (though it needs a slip if I wear it with tights because it’s got a thin fleece lining, perfect for colder weather.)
I am a firm believer that a pair of beige heels is as essential as an LBD.
