Skirts are the one of the most underrated wardrobe pieces that get very little attention in the fashion world. Like pants, they are very adaptable to most anything you wear. Unlike dresses, skirts are able to be worn with different tops and are easily mixed or matched. Two or three skirts in a wardrobe are easy go-to options for any professional or personal need. Owning two to three skirts of different lengths will help you day to day. Think about a pencil or straight skirt that is knee length. This will be an essential item you will reach for often and provides an easy day to night transition with any outwear, blazer or blouse. Other basic skirts include an A-Line, Flared, Pleated and Wrap skirt. There are an abundance of brands available at a range of prices and styles. Below you will see some of our choices. It is hard to narrow down as there are many wonderful brands.
Jackets are a great add on piece for many different outfits. Whether for cold or warm weather, the right jacket or outwear may provide a polished, modern, conservative or Boeheim look. Different jacket lengths will accentuate different parts of your figure. With a skirt or dress, consider a shorter length jacket and with pants you may choose longer depending on your body-type. Jacket styles vary from a pretty peplum to an oversized boyfriend blazer to a safari jacket worn with a casual pair of jeans. Blazers are not meant just for the office anymore and are worn all the time outside of work. If you love color or prints, a blaze on top will make a great statement and not compete with the print or color. One-color jacket or blazer is easy to match to any type of bold print and should link to one color in the print. While a classic, great-fitting blazer is an important element of every wardrobe, finding a blazer that is part of a suit is a practical, money saving strategy. You can maximize how you style the pieces as separates. There is an abundance of choices for every body-type and our favorites are shown below.
