Closet Staples -Part One

July 24, 2019 in

Hi kids! How is everyone today?
Do you ever see those articles in magazines titled "10 pieces every woman needs" or  "The pieces every woman needs" ?
I figured it would be fun if we visited that here.
Mind you, most of those magazines are published in NYC. I'm a suburbanite, take that into consideration when evaluating my pics.
I fully admit that my life is Starbucks runs, dog walking and going grocery shopping. Its not trips to the MET. That will be clear here.

For today's staple, its the most basic yet versatile thing ever. The crisp, white oxford shirt.

Why you want it:
Nothing out there looks as classic as a white oxford paired with jeans for fun or a dress skirt for business. Its also the optimal layering piece.

What to look for in an Oxford shirt:

  • A structured collar. This is what makes an oxford stand out from any 'ol shirt.

        Plus, you might want to pop the collar sometimes.

  • A small amount of stretch, look for a shirt that is 95% cotton. This is not only more comfortable,but also helps to keep the wrinkles away.

  • Shirt tales long enough for it to be tucked in. You can certainly wear it un-tucked , but you'll want to be able to have the option

There you have it, the first installment of out closet staples review. Stay tuned for more to come in the next few weeks.
