10 Year Gala

Ladies Night Out!

What are 9 items that can live in your closet forever and are classically cool?

We sat down with Erica Brown of Dylan Star in Santa Barbara, CA  to uncover what key items will MAKE your closet.  Here’s what she had to say:  

Black dress or jumpsuit:  Dress them down with a denim jacket and sneakers.  Dress them up with heels and statement jewelry. 

  • Well fitting white shirt and black pants:  Wear them together with any number of additions (think funky hat, vest, scarf) or separately with a statement piece (like a patterned top or skirt).  Invest in something that feels good!
  • Leather jacket, belt, and shoes:  Get all of these things in the same color and then match two with any outfit to pull the look together.
  • Denim jacket:  From making your athleisure look even more appropriate for brunch to providing that key element that keeps you warm in a dress on a cool night, denim jackets will never go out of style.  
  • Statement dressy item:  This could be a dress, pants, top, jumper, etc.  The key is that it makes you smile, feel confident and can be worn to any event without much thought because it just works.
