Yesterday I filmed a style segment on HerSay.com (I will let you know when it airs) with Soleil Moon Frye giving her my basic wardrobe essentials. The more people I style, the more I realize how many of you are missing the basics. Just by incorporating these items, your wardrobe will seem endless with possibilities…
Here are some of my favorites:
1. Dark Wash Denim. Dark wash denim can go from day to night and look so chic. Doesn’t matter the style: skinny, flare, skinny bell…just get a pair that fits YOU. J Brand “Love Story Flare Jeans, piperlime.com
2. V-Neck Tees. Why V-necks over crew you may ask? V-necks elongate and make you look a little taller. Sometimes crew necks can make you look scrunched and small. Make sure to get it in white, black, grey and a couple colors that pop. They are super versatile because you can dress them up with a great statement necklace and blazer or dress it down with a cool casual cardi. Vintage Cotton V-Neck Tee, J.Crew.com
3. Cardigans. I love to layer…whether it’s with cardigan, blazer or jewelry. Throw one on over your tee, tank or summer dress and you are good to go looking polished and elegant. Alice & Olivia Beckett Metallic Drape Cardi, Shopbop.com4. Accessories. Scarves, necklaces, bracelets, belts – they all can complete a look by making it go from ho-hum to oh-so-chic. Gorjana Graham Studded Leather Wrap Bracelet, shopbop.com
My favorite accessory right now is the envelope clutch. It’s so chic and can be worn with your favorite pair of J Brand Lovestory flare jeans or a cocktail dress. Check out more on this in my latest article for HollywoodHotMom: http://hollywoodhotmoms.com/envelope-clutch-spotted-on-hillary-swank
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.
Can we just discuss for a moment how amazing these outfits are from Jill Roberts? The first look is so flirty and fun. It is perfect to wear during the week just running around town. I am all over the second look. I just got back from Tulum and this is is the ideal outfit for a mexican vacation. I love the easy effortless dresses in the last pics. Any one of these outfits immediately transform the most fashionably challenged into the most fashionable! Jill really knows her stuff and picks such key pieces for her store. I am a huge fan.
