Checked blazer and draped pants.

Effortless style is easily achieved with basics that will take your from meetings to evenings out. When shopping for wardrobe essentials, look for pieces that offer interesting details, pattern, or tailoring. Chances are you already own a black pair of trousers.  When looking for an update, instead of buying a similar pair, opt for style with a twist. In this case, I’m wearing a chic draped pair embellished with an oversized bow. A sleek bodysuit balances the embellished trousers. (You’ve probably noticed the bodysuit has come back in big way. It’s super versatile, serves as a foundation for an outfit, and most importantly stays put all day). A gingham blazer lends a graphic edge and an impeccably crafted backpack keeps your busy life organized. A chunky, braided, silver-tone necklace adds a textured statement.  What wardrobe staples are YOU buying for fall?  XO Sasha
