I have come to the conclusion that my closet just isn't cutting it. I mean really. Since I've started the 30 for 30 challenge I haven't been able to go shopping. And because I haven't been blindly buying random articles of clothing left and right, I've started to think about the pieces that would be worth the while to wait for. I mean those quality 'it' pieces that really define your style and elevate the rest of your wardrobe. I need more of that.
Anne Hathaway said in a recent interview that you can't rush a good wardrobe. There can't be any artificiality to your style. So I'll just have to wait and wait until the right pieces come to me. Since I can't shop right now, its the perfect time to clear my head about what I really want in my closet. Here is the list I've made so far.
'It' pieces needed:
-A pair of nude heels to go with everything
-A classic military inspired coat in navy or army green
-A leather motorcycle jacket with ALL the bells and whistles
-A chunky knit gray scarf to prepare for winter
-A sick pair of black ankle booties
I consider the brown leather jacket I have on here in outfit number eight to be one of my current 'it' pieces. Its tough but more sophisticated than your average leather jacket. Its got great knit panels in the sides for movement and some quilting detail in the shoulders for interest. Tell me, what are your 'it' pieces that you rely on to pull your outfit together? What items are on your wishlist that would help identify your style?
