Carla's Style Tip: Know Thy Self

Our womenswear buyer Carla has a wealth of style knowledge to share. Being in a brand new year, it's an appropriate time for a style refresh. Let's start off with her top style tip: Know Thy Self.

You want to get the same great return on investment for your wardrobe as you do your financial investments. This doesn't mean investing thousands into an entirely new wardrobe, but instead only investing in pieces that'll get maximum mileage. It's all about aligning your style with your life, which is where style becomes a lifestyle.

A lot of downtown professional women come through our doors. They need pieces that can go anywhere they do, which means important meetings, dates, out with the girls, to the office, all with the ability to keep denim looking polished. A navy Circle of Gentlemen blazer does just that. We put this piece with three basic pieces you'll probably already find in your closet: black denim from Paige, a black pencil skirt, and a crisp white shirt. You've added one piece, but now have more complete outfits.

Look at what you wear everyday and add pieces that will work with them. Beautiful style happens when you dress for your life!
