Today I am kicking of a series that I am calling “Style Staples”. Over the next two weeks I will be introducing pieces that I deem as necessary for your wardrobe, depending on how you categorize your style. These clothing and accessory items will be versatile pieces that will carry you through multiple outfits, and will be more specifically fit towards one particular style group. While I believe there are some items that all women could benefit from owning, I don’t see the value in telling women that the same 20 staples are going to work for every single one of us, because it’s just not the case. We all have different likes and different ways we would like to portray ourselves, so this series will give you the opportunity to pick which style you think you’re most closely aligned to and consider purchasing some of the style staples within that group!

Who is the Tailored Eclectic Dresser? Tailored eclectic is for the woman who loves to dress up, appreciates the fit that comes with an expensive designer piece, and loves classic pieces but also has no fear of injecting a bold color or a truly “interesting” piece into her wardrobe. She has a lifestyle where dressing to the nines is necessary, whether its for flying through the corporate ranks or working with high-end clients.
Things to keep in mind for the Tailored Eclectic Dresser: If this is your style-type, you want to make sure you maintain a balance of some more dressed-down pieces so that your wardrobe doesn’t become too fancy. Make sure you add some basics to your wardrobe that can be less formal when necessary, like a good pair of jeans and some basic flats. Also, if this is your style but you can’t afford the high-end, quite-as-well-made pieces, buy more budget friendly items and become really good friends with the best local tailor you can find.

If “Tailored Eclectic” isn’t your cup of tea, not to worry! I will be showcasing Classic Preppy style on Thursday, and more to come next week, so stay tuned!
