1. BLACK BLAZER

“A tailored blazer is classic, feminine and looks great on all body types. Pair it with anything: jeans, little dresses, trousers, skirts. Make sure to find one that fits you well and accentuates your waist—you don’t want it to look like it’s swallowing you!”

“Even if you’re wearing a basic T-shirt and jeans, use accessories like a printed scarf as the ‘bright’ piece to complete your look.”

Marc Jacobs | $175

6. LITTLE BLACK DRESS

“Every woman knows she should have a little black dress, but it’s important to invest in one that’s special. Look for a dress with a detail-an interesting sleeve, an embellished belt-that makes it unique. And remember that finding the right fit is important!”

Rosetta Getty | $490

7. BLACK OPAQUE TIGHTS

“A great pair of tights can make your legs look slimmer and help you get away with wearing a dress that’s a little too short. Double them up for a more opaque look-and to keep you warm in the winter!”

Commando | $36

8. OVERSIZE WATCH

“A watch is as much an accessory as it is a timepiece. A gold watch is a great way to dress an outfit up-try leaving it loose so it looks like a bracelet.”

Omega | $2,940

9. CLASSIC TRENCH COAT

“Think of this as an investment piece—you’ll wear it forever, even if you fluctuate in size. Look for a classic A-line silhouette that will cinch you in at the waist and wear it over everything from suits to jeans.”

Burberry | $1,995
