Closet Helpers

Each and every one of us has, at one point in time, come to a crossroads in our closets. We wake up, dig through the piles of clothes and, after making a mockery of your organizational skills, declare, “I have absolutely nothing to wear!”. Upon deciding this, we limit ourselves to two options. We can either sort through everything again and desperately try and find pieces that can actually go together, or throw everything out and start again. Well my friends there is a more economically friendly way to ensure a fashion hassle-free morning or night. By keeping these staple pieces in your closet you’ll save money and your sanity!

The Boy-less Boyfriend Jacket: Be the leading lady of comfort and savvy in a jacket that’s even acceptable for the future in-laws! With a longer cut and tailored sides this piece offers a sleek but oh-so-casual-cool look. Pair with skinny jeans and tall boots for dinner and a movie, or a pencil skirt or dress at the office.

The Sleek Sheath: Take sophistication to the next level with a form flattering and fabulous sheath dress. With this piece in your closet you’ll be ready to take on any fashion dilemma. The cinched waist and pencil skirt hug the figure in just the right way, while the top portion comes in a variety of necklines suitable for all different body types. Beautiful by itself for a night out on the town, or pair with a cardigan and skinny belt cinched around the waist for a day at the office.

(This adorable plaid sheath is available at Miss Ruby!)

The Cozy Cardigan: This winter it’s all about the cardigan - they are the quintessential add on for any outfit you choose. With all the different shapes, patterns and plethora of color palates available, you can have your cardigan and wear one-everyday if you wanted too! Pair a cropped cardigan with a cute mini skirt and tights for play or opt for a longer cardigan to wear over your pencil skirt for work. And you don’t have to just stick to solid neutral colors. Instead mix and match patterns with brightly colored solids for a look that will wear away at your winter blues.

The Wearable Winter Coat: Who says you have to sacrifice style for warmth? With this season's feminine coats the puffy winter coats of yesterday have finally met their match. These wool and nylon blend coats show off your figure all while keeping it warm! With frill details, pleats and skirted bottoms, you don’t have to pick between femininity and comfort the coat of 2010 is slowly becoming the new dress!
