I love a neutral monochromatic look in timeless pieces, like this sleeveless blouse and A-line skirt. It’s a look that can translate from day to night, to weekend by switching out just a few accessories. But most of all, it’s a look that will last through the years. All of these items are ones I’ve had for at least one year, but most are pieces I’ve had in my closet for many years. These are definitely the pieces I prefer to invest money in, versus something a bit trendier (like a jumpsuit, or a pair of joggers)
For a look like this, be sure you’re investing in pieces that really fit. I actually did have the blouse above tailored on the sides a bit (but not so much that it removed the intended blousy silhouette). If you do splurge on a very classic piece, spending some additional cash on tailoring will be well worth the extra investment.
