I recently did a closet sweep and realized I was missing two key items any reasonable "fashionista" should own: a suit and a statement bootie.
SUIT -- The suit has been around for ages. I mean those 80s shoulder pads and ill fits of the 90s? Needless to say, the suit silhouette has been through the ringer over the past 50 years. Thank GOD as of late, it has made a revival in a slim, minimal, sexy style. Insert this AYR pairing I found in an unexpected navy with a bit of sheen. I could rock this suit with a tee and Cons, a camisole and pointy pumps, or like I did here, with a tie neck blouse and fun booties. My two main points to preach when finding your perfect suit? QUALITY AND FIT. There is nothing worse than an ill-fitting suit. Period. And like I said, suits have been and will be around, so this is not an area to "skimp". Buy a quality suit, in quality material, in a timeless silhouette. It will last you a lifetime.
Statement Bootie -- I fell in love with these embossed booties from Miista that have detailing all the way down to the heel. Red is my go-to for any pop of color in an accessory but I've never scored anything quite as unique as these. They add the perfect contrast to the suit here and are a closet staple to amp up any minimal or normcore look . Shop the links above to add these two essentials to your wardrobe.
