Gimme Some Essentials

Upgrade your look for the new year from standard to standout.  All it takes is my list of 2014 wardrobe essentials and a little outfit inspiration.

The Plaid Essential- Wear It & Pair It!

Insanely cozy, this plaid shirt has weekend written all over it.  When worn with a faux-fur vest and body hugging skinnies, your weekend will hardly be a predictable one.

The Peacoat Essential- Wear It & Pair It!

The peacoat puts the focus on your lower half and it's hip skimming length is just right no matter your height.  Show it off with coated skinny jeans or a flirty mini.

The Denim Essential- Wear It & Pair It!

Slightly oversized, this shirt has a borrowed from the boys feel.  For a feminine touch, just unfasten a few buttons and slip on a sparkly mini.

The Distressed Jeans Essential- Wear It & Pair It!

These weathered washes come in every kind of cut from skinny to boyfriend to straight leg.  Take your pick!

Max out the sultriness of a skinny pair with a flash of shoulder and peep toe booties.

Straight leg jeans in a dark wash look best with a subtle rip here and there.  Bring on the bling with a sequin bomber and cropped graphic tee.

Roll the hems of these guy-inspired, boyfriend jeans.  After all, why not reveal more of those booties you love to wear so much?  Girlish details, like a ruffled blouse, happily riff off the denim's masculine touches.

 Rock the Long & Lean Cardi- Wear It & Pair It!

The season's softest, most flattering sweater is now one of the most versatile layers too- wear it any of these three ways:

Shrug it on over a striped tee & distressed denim for a downtime look that oozes off-duty cool.

I say cardi, you say casual? Not so fast.  Layer it over a swingy, lacy cocktail dress for a more dressy look.  Just keep the cardi in the same color family.

If you're after that Parisian vibe (and really, aren't we all sometimes?), simply button up the cardi, pair with skinnies & a sexy heel.  Tres chic!

The Statement Sweatshirt Essential- Wear It & Pair It!

Give the season's essential sweatshirt silhouette the supermodel treatment with lace, sequins, and leopard prints.  Wear it with just about anything!

The Lacy Sweatshirt

Peek-a-boo lace injects a casual staple with rocker chic.  Let it share the stage with lacquered leggings & chunky boots.

The Sequined Sweatshirt

The cut says sporty, the band of bling insists on partying.  Build on the yin-yang vibe with track pants & fierce heels.

The Leopard Sweatshirt

A slouchy shape housebreaks the animal print for a softer look.  Tame that leopard some more with a pleated mini.
