50 Stylish Pieces to Own – Part 2

50 Stylish Pieces to Own – Part 2


Burberry trench // faux leather pants // scarf

Hermes bag // shoes



Leggings look wonderful under a long tunic or sweater!  Plus they are super comfortable!

Little black dress 

The LBD is a well-known closet staple!  Find a simple dress that can be worn to a variety of occasions and change your accessories to reflect the mood!


We could all use a little extra color on our lips!  I like to look for a lipstick that is a few shades deeper than my natural color!

Leather jacket 

Nothing screams cool girl quite like a leather jacket!  Find one of superior quality that suits your figure and you will have it for life!


Traveling is a lot more fun if you have a great set of luggage.  Look for a piece with spinning wheels and lots of compartments!


If I had to choose one makeup item and forgo all the rest … I would pick Mascara!  Mascara extenuates your eyes and makes you look rested.

Moto Jacket

Another it-girl must have.  Avoid anything shiny and reach for a soft fabric!  Try a cropped jacket with a tunic shirt and skinny jeans!


Some of us like to sleep in an old t-shirt but you should have a great pair of pajamas for when company is in town!  You don’t want to greet them at the coffee maker in something dingy.


I personally think everyone should own at least a small pair of pearl studs.  They aren’t ostentatious and can be worn with virtually everything.  Majorica makes extremely good copies.

Plain white shirt 

Great for a casual outfit paired with jeans.  Don’t spend too much money on this one!  You can find a lot of great white t-shirts at Target! 


Every woman should have a great pair of flat and heeled sandals.  Choose a pair that flatters your feet and legs like the Stuart Weitzman Nudist!


Whether you prefer, silk, cashmere, or good old cotton … a scarf elevates the look of any outfit and most importantly keeps your neck warm!  I always bring one with me every time I fly.

Straw bag 

A great summer staple that doesn’t have to cost a lot.  A straw bag looks effortlessly chick and can be worn virtually everywhere.


 Every woman should own a suit even if they do not need one for work.  You never know when you might have an important meeting or interview where a suit is called for.


Whether you pick a bikini or a one-piece, choose a swimsuit that flatters your figure.  Try on a bunch to see what looks best.

Tote bag

Everyone needs a big bag to throw all their stuff into.  Longchamp and L.L. Bean make great totes at a reasonable price. 


My favorite coat of all time is a Burberry Trench but there are many great copies out there!  A trench will always look sophisticated.


It should go without saying that everyone needs an umbrella!  Who wants to get soaked in the rain?  There are a lot of cute options out there to mix and match with your outfit!

Vintage jewelry 

Vintage jewelry is unique and often one of a kind.  Stand out from the crowd with a piece that only you own!

Quilted jacket 

A refined jacket that can be worn anywhere from the field to city streets!


A watch can be just as much a piece of jewelry as a bracelet.  I personally love the Cartier Tank watch which comes in a variety of metal and leather bands!

Wellington boots 

A must have boot for rainy and muddy days!  They come in a variety of colors and finishes.

White button down shirt 

Choose oversized or tailored!  A white button down is a versatile piece for a casual day or a work day!

White tennis shoes 

A laid back look that pairs well with skinny pants, shorts, dresses, and skirts!  Think Adidas superstar or traditional Converse!

Wrap dress 

Figure flattering on everyone as it accentuates the waist line and drapes nicely over the rest of your body.  DVF makes the ultimate wrap dress but you can find may other brands with great options.

Wool coat 

Naturally water resistant and very warm.  A wool coat is a great item to have on a cold wet day.  Find one with fun toggle buttons to add a little flair.
