A blazer is a wardrobe must because it creates a more polished and put-together vibe. Roll up the sleeves and layer on some fun jewels to finish the look.
Today’s wardrobe essential is something every woman needs in her closet: the LBD. A little black dress is such an essential piece because it is timeless and never goes out of style.
Cardigans are a great way to layer. And since layering is super chic and never goes out of style, the cardigan is one of my wardrobe essentials.
Day 3 of my wardrobe essential series is all about making a statement with jewelry. Anyone who knows me knows that I never leave the house without jewelry! Whether you pair it with your favorite white tee and jeans or your LBD, the right jewelry can really elevate your look. Get inspired by some of the images below…
Day 2 of my wardrobe essentials series is all about the perfect pair of jeans. Whether you prefer bootcut, skinny, skinny boot or flare – finding the right pair of jeans for your body shape is essential for having great style. Some of my personal favorite brands are: J.Brand, AG and Rag & Bone. But I strongly suggest you go to the stores and try on a bunch of different styles and brands to find your perfect fit. Not gonna lie, it takes some time and patience…but in the end it’s worth it.
I have decided to do a series of blog posts showing different ways to wear all of my personal favorite wardrobe essentials. Today is the first of many and it is all about the basic white tee. Whether you prefer v-neck, scoop or boatneck – a basic white tee is an absolute must in any wardrobe.
My favorite tees are from Monrow, J.Crew , Caslon and James Perse.
My style tip on this week’s Jen’s List:
How many of you have been wearing the same bra for years and have no idea if it fits properly? Did you buy your bra based on the size you think you are rather than the size that you really need? Did you know that a well fitted bra can give you a better shape AND make you look slimmer? If your bra is riding up in the back, it’s too big (in number, not letter), so swap your 34C for a 32C. Another tip: Get help from a certified bra fitter from a bra boutique (they will have a “certified bra fitter” sign in the window) or head to Nordstrom where they have certified bra fitters to help you.
Listen up ladies! The capri pant that you have been wearing for the past 5-10 years is no longer fashionable. I know you want to fight me on this because you love how comfortable and easy they are to throw on when the weather warms up. They are your go-to when you refuse to be caught seen in a pair of shorts. But the capri has been updated. The latest and must-have option for this trend is the crop. Think Audrey Hepburn. The new crop ends right below your calf. Think about it, why would we ever want to have a pant stop at the widest part of our calf? The crop is a bit longer and ends at a more flattering part of your leg. You can still find a comfy pair that rolls up just past your ankle but you need to get rid of the pair that stops dead center on your calves. Below are some illustrations so that there is absolutely no confusion. Please trust me on this if you want to look relevant.

This is just plain ugly:
I don’t care if they are comfortable, they are not cute or flattering:
So cute. So stylish. So flattering. Hello Audrey Hepburn:
