Curating a Classic Winter Wardrobe

I don’t dress up too much.

As a work-from-home individual I’m in dress-down clothing more often than not. I’m not quite at work in pajamas status, but I definitely don’t reach for my “office appropriate” pieces as often as I used to. But just because my daily uniform is cozy and comfy doesn’t mean i don’t need a simple collection of workwear basics that can get me through meetings and events.

For clothing I don’t reach for on a daily basis, I like to play it safe with colors that work with anything (i.e. neutrals) and silhouettes that are flattering. This look, for example, we shot to showcase the power of black and white. I’ve had this cream blouse for 6 or 7 years now and it’s still going strong.

I pair it with everything from jeans and my Sezane sneakers to dress pants and a pink faux fur coat. It’s a classic that is the easiest piece to pull when I need a bit more business in my life. I styled these wide leg trousers from Brass Clothing this past summer and since then they’ve been essential to my classic wardrobe.

If you’re looking to add a classic piece to your wardrobe, start slow and simple. A  white, cream, or ivory blouse is an easy first pick because it will go with anything you can dream up. But a couple tips to choosing a long-lasting shirt:

  • Choose a non-wrinkle fabric
  • Make sure it’s fitted
  • Find the hue that works for your skin tone
  • Don’t cheap out, but don’t buy the most expensive one on the market
  • Find a classic silhouette to stand the test of time

    A white shirt is an essential wardrobe staple. A great coat is another.
