I’m starting a new series on basics for wardrobe building and how can I not start with the best and most fundamental, the Little Black Dress? One reason so many of us buy a lot but still look in our closet and claim we have nothing to wear is because we focus on the bright shiny new stuff and forget the basics. At least that’s been my issue in the past, a wardrobe that’s all spice no substance. Though some women do seem to have the opposite problem and could stand to add a little pizazz!
Let me start with a cute story. Many years ago, my father called me one day and said that in the doctor’s waiting room he read in a magazine that every woman needed a Little Black Dress and he wanted to make sure I had one! Haha …. Daddy! (Damn, I miss him and my mom so much!)
So one of my new year’s resolutions is to be more helpful to my readers. It’s easy for bloggers to get so caught up in “fashionista world” that they forget about real women who need real wearable workable wardrobes. And hey, since I also have a full-time job and life outside blogging, I need a real wardrobe too! (This doesn’t mean that I won’t also have posts drooling over the latest at New York Fashion Week, because …well, you know I LOVE that too!)
I’ve been spending some time lately thinking about what makes a wardrobe both hard-working AND fun and I keep coming back to this formula: classics/basics mixed with trends.
So here’s my list of favorite outfits of 2017, month by month, built with this simple method!
