“Go to” fashion basics that retain their style appeal


A corner in every woman’s closet holds the “go to” pieces she loves to wear. Clothes deserve this elevated status because they pass the test for comfort, versatility and enduring style. These feel-good items are not only easy to wear, but they also provide figure flattery and a seamless fit. Oh how happy we would be to have an entire closet full of our treasured pieces. Maybe the fashion forecasters are gently moving us in this direction with their predictions of a  return to effortless style and simple elegance in 2013.Vogue describes this trend as “practically styling-free” and “no-fuss beauty”. Unlike the unkempt, grunge look, this trend celebrates  natural beauty and a pared down approach to style.

What better way to embrace this back to basics fashion philosophy than to purchase a few standout wardrobe essentials? These always trending fashion must haves definitely deserve the “go to” worthy label:

jeans: The relentless quest for the ideal jean may well be over. Greenville, South Carolina based Beija-Flor sells figure flattering denim in a variety of styles and colors for modern women who want style, fit and comfort. Ringing endorsements keep appearing for these stretch denim “curve friendly” wonders from publications such as Oprah, People Style Watch and Health Magazines. I’ve seen these jeans and they are ultra soft and beautifully made.

Cardigan Sweater:  Comfort and style harmoniously coexist in the Ann Taylor cashmere hoodie. Pair this sweater with skinny jeans or a pencil skirt, and wear it running errands or to work. This high fashion hoodie, now selling at 50% off the regular price, comes in luscious colors like pomegranate, and nouveau blue. Sounds like an ideal holiday gift to me.

Striped t-shirt: Stripes endure season after season and never disappoint. I love my assortment of striped tees, and I especially like wearing them with print or plaid scarves. Navy blue micro-striped tees attract classic dressers, while dramatic types gravitate toward bolder, bigger multi-striped ones. J Crew even sells a sequined striped tee at $128 for the gals who want their stripes and glamour too.

What does your “go to” list consist of?

    A girl can never have TOO many classic white shirts! Always tailored, timeless & style appropriate for ALL ages.

    I agree on the need for classic shirts. White isn’t a flattering color for me, so when I wear my white blouse I pair it with one of my optimal colors close to my face. Classic shirts look so great with cardigans, v neck sweaters too.
