The Classics…

Don’t kid yourself. You will need new white t- shirts. Do it now. Even if you think they survived through last summer I guarantee you will pull them out only to discover that it looks like a cat urinated under the arms over the winter. Start new. Start clean. Start fresh.

Choose this drop shoulder scoop for a boxier, looser fit.

Or go classic with the white v-neck. I always size up in these so that I can throw them in the washer and dryer.

Stripes and summer go hand in hand. Pick a lightweight tank, a classic boatneck, or simple summer sweater. Pair any of these back to white shorts, white denim or classic blue jeans and you are good to go.

It ain’t always sexy but it’s pretty much an essential. The classic cardigan can be left over your chair at work for over air-conditioned offices or grabbed as you are running out the door to throw over a sundress. Choose white as a no-fail or a pretty pastel to brighten up navy, gray and black.

Summer Staples:

These stretch blends can be dressed up or down. Hate your arms? Reach for the aforementioned cardigan.

*Insider Tip – Show Some Sparkle

Buy the boring. I go through so many closets and find that most clients are missing some solids. We tend to overlook these mundane pieces when shopping because they just don’t catch our eye. But truth be told they are so important because they are the glue that holds together all of our other fun pieces. Stock up on these and you will have great foundation pieces in your wardrobe.
