Fall is finally here and along with tea, woolen pieces of desire crawl out of the closet and straight onto us. Shirts, jackets, pants, undergarments, full on layering, boots, gloves, beanies, huge bags. Winter has it all. But do you?
Since day one I said more than ten times that women of our times lack the basics. Sometimes I look back on the restrictions of the wartime 40s with nostalgia, cause honestly when budget is short, our search for style becomes more clear and sophistication gets a must-have lift. It's sad that some women do not get to wear coats these days. Gloves are about to get extinct really, and not to mention the old-time-classic j'adore white shirt which I haven't seen on a girl live for a long, long time!
I'll skip the whining part and go straight for the clothes. Under each image I will explain the reason why I pick each piece, and I hope that most of you will get, or already have some of these, as I need a stylish winter at last, with women walking down the streets dressed in simplicity rather than floral baroque-ness which they don't even get or know how to pull off.
|2. The updated coat: You can never go wrong with black. Same as the first one, this is a versatile piece which can be worn with everything you own. A must have.|
|6. The Little Black Dress 02: Sophisticated with a twist. A classic design, again something you can combine with any kind of shoes and coat, it has a sexy cut out back that you can't help but adore!|
|9: The Sweater: With either jeans shorts, maxi, midi, mini skirts, naked, or in underwear, a sweater is a passepartout. Go for a monochrome one and you'll never get bored with it, I promise.|
|10. Pencil Skirt: You need a black one. You do. You can dress this up with a shirt, or dress it down with a casual t-shirt. From day to night, it has to be part of your closet.|
|11. Pants: A black pair is necessary. Choose the material yourselves, but I recommend something dense and neutral so that you can dress it up or down according to the occasion.|
|14: The IT bag: Celine, LV and Alexander Wang bags are great, but we don't always have a budget for these. So opt for a black leather one in a very classic design that can carry you from office to dinner. Obviously you can match this with everything.|
15. Hell Yeah Heels!: Black leather in classic design. Why? Well, I think I mentioned it 2000 times already. Versatility!
|16. Ballerinas: Pointed ones because they are more of a statement, in a neutral tone to serve its basic purpose. Day to night. Your feet love these and you do as well.|
|17: Ankle Boots: A bit of edge, practicality above all and black and white because we want something we can easily combine. I love these, and they might not be that necessary but they are j'adore!|
18: Gloves: GET A PAIR NOW! That's all :)
19: Boots: It's winter, they are black. Need I say more? No.
