There are certain things, that all fashionable women have. They tend to be tried & true classics, or things that every tasteful woman tend to acquire. At some point in your adult life, you grow out of colorful hair ties & beat up sneakers, & you want some things that are more sophisticated & refined. But what are they?
-A timeless bag. Invest in a bag that you literally could use for years, any time of the year. Designers have named bags after women they were inspired by. Marc Jacobs has named several bags after friends / muses; most famously the Sofia bag, after Sofia Coppola when he was the head designer at Louis Vuitton. An Hermès bag made famous by Grace Kelly was named the Kelly bag. If you could have a bag named after you, which bag would it be?
-A chic winter coat. Another wise investment; pick something in a neutral color & good quality. When taken care of properly, a good coat could last you years & years!
-Jewelry you wear all the time. Whether they’re studs in your ears, a necklace, or watch that’s a family heirloom, add a classy touch by wearing a piece of jewelry. Carolina Herrera famously loves stacks of bangles. And you? What is your signature piece of jewelry?
-A signature scent. Perfume has been scientifically proven to get men’s blood flowing! Perfume can turn them on, or evoke memories. If perfume has that kind of effect on a man, don’t you think you should get some? If you would like to see a list of what kind of scents turn men on, click here!
-A versatile lip color. Pick a shade that’s flattering on you, but something you could wear almost anywhere. Sorry, no gold shimmer, or black lipstick. Got a date? Meeting some friends? Have to go to work? Pop on that lip color & you’re ready to go. Tip: Get one that’s a lip cheek stain, so for those days you’re in a rush, you can add some color to your lips & cheeks all in 1 product!
-A well fitted suit. Lots of women will need this for work, but most importantly, the job interview. You may have a job that doesn’t require it, but at some point you will need one. You may need it for a meeting, presentation, or even on parent teacher night! (Your children’s teachers will take you far more seriously if you are dressed well, vs. a slob) Be on the safe side & have one in your closet.
-Classic shoes. You need classic shoes whether they’re pumps, flats, or boots; something sophisticated that you could wear every day. At some point you have to take those beat up Keds or Converse sneakers, throw them away, & replace them with something chic!
