There are several key items every girl needs in her closet today that will always be in style. In Antonio Mancinelli’s Fashion Box, he highlights several classic pieces that were worn by fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Jacqueline Kennedy. The little black dress, jeans, white collard shirt, and trench coat are some of the items listed as classic fashion essentials.
The LBD also known as the little black dress is never inappropriate. It can be worn to a funeral or a wedding, its party and work friendly(depending on the length). You can create a versatile look with the LBD by dressing up with pearls or dressing down by adding a jean jacket or blazer. Audrey Hepburn made a lasting impression in the fashion world with her LDB in the classic hit Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
A girl can never have too many jeans especially if they are worn frequently. In the Fashion Box, Mancinelli quotes Yves Saint Laurent who said “I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity-all I hope for in my clothes.” Marilyn Monroe put jeans on the spot in her 1960 film The Misfits. Stressed jeans are fine but you can never go wrong with a pair denim jeans.
Another piece to add to your fall/winter closet would be the black turtleneck. The turtleneck is so versatile that it could be paired with a pencil skirt for different look.
