Comment on Three So-Called Wardrobe Essentials you *DON’T* have to own by naiadknight.

Bleach is my friend with the white shirts I own, otherwise, they never would make it past the first wear. I’ve never worn white on an interview though. Too plain and not enough personality with a white button up, suit, and black shoes. They’ll remember the turquoise shirt more, but I’m still extraordinarily professional looking.

Same here. Fall is where the temperature bounces from a high of 100*F to a high of 50*f with seemingly wild abandon, and it lasts a matter of weeks. Because we get so much wind and wild shifts (today is supposed to be a high in the 90s and a low in the low 50s), leather and Gore Tex are just better suited here.

Nude heels- Everywhere I turn, people are saying I need nude heels. I don’t own a pair. First of all, every nude I’ve ever found was too dark for my fish belly white feet. Second of all, I’d look like a freakin’ barefoot Barbie in nude heels. You don’t need them. What they mean is a pair of shoes that’ll go with EVERYTHING you own. For most people that’s the band-aid colors of nude heels that are offered. For me, it’s my knee high black boots.
A trench coat- To be fair, trench coats do look good on most women and are fairly universally loved. I’ve never found one that didn’t swallow me whole. A classic trench coat (double breasted, etc) is my worst enemy, because it hides my shape. I tend to go for a long leather jacket where most women would reach for the trench: less material and more fitted. Point being, the trench is not everyone’s friend. Find the style that is your friend for foul weather.

I tend not to pack light or capsule style.

I throw in a few favorite pieces of jewelry as accessories.

Style S.O.S: What to Wear for Graduation
I graduated in December, on a record cold day, during an ice storm. (The running joke was that hell really had frozen over.) I wore a black pencil skirt, white button up, and my trademark waist scarf with some low black heels. As we had to line up in the loading dock and then sit in what is usually the basketball court, we froze. Even the guys in full suits were shivering, and I was cussing myself for not wearing a blazer under my robes.
