• A pair of well fitting, flattering dark jeans. No holes, no rips. For the female shape, a bootcut has a more formal look, and a skinny jean a more casual vibe. For gentlemen, a classic straight leg is the way to go. Bear in mind the cut should always be chosen by what flatters you the most and what you feel the most confident in.

  • A pair of well cut and flattering black dress pants.

  • A well-fitting jacket. A neutral color you can grab and go, that will work with EVERYTHING. Tailor, tailor, tailor to get the right look on you.

  • A pair of black and a pair of nude shoes or booties for women. For best flattery impact, make the toe at least somewhat pointy – a round toe does not elevate an outfit – and choose one with even the tiniest kitten heel. A heel elevates the body differently and makes you stand and walk taller! For the gentlemen, a black and a brown pair in a contemporary shape is perfect.

  • A long + a short necklace in gold and in silver for women. A watch with a clean, fresh looking strap for men.

  • The handbag or “briefcase”. Have one neutral color you can wear with everything.

These basics must be in good condition, no snags, no pilling, no scuffs. Replace them otherwise.
