Women’s Wardrobe With Delightful and Select Wearables

As a fashion editor, it doesn’t surprise me that she has a lot of clothes. It’s part of the job, and while I love trying new things and experimenting with new trends, it’s not always sunshine and rainbows. If I’m not careful (spoiler alert: usually I’m not) I can get to a point where my closet is overstuffed, impractical, and unusable, requiring cleaning.

When the seasons change and I change my wardrobe for the new weather, it’s always the perfect time to get rid of some of the things I no longer use. I make sure to wear the clothes I took out of storage and not put back anything I didn’t wear last season. This all happened a few weeks ago, and the result was 10 bin bags full of donations to both charities and my very, very happy little sister.

As I was purging myself, it was interesting to see that there were some things I would never consider getting rid of. From staples I splurged on, to statement pieces I wear over and over again, it’s my little capsule eclectic wardrobe. The items I’ve invested in have certainly paid off and definitely won’t be taking the swag out of my closet anytime soon.

I’m a big sneaker girl, honestly I probably own 10+ pairs of white sneakers alone. But despite my huge collection, I find myself looking for my Vejas more than anyone else. I love them so much that I have them in three different styles, and I use them constantly. Better yet, I’ve had them all for years, and if they look worn or dirty, a handy magic eraser makes them look like new. They are my tried and true, and they are not going anywhere any time soon.

During my career, I tried literally dozens of different brands of jeans, but no matter what, the ones I wore the most ended up being Abercrombie. Even on my pairs that retail for more than double the price, I find my ’90s Abercrombie jeans living at the top of my pants pile. I rarely if ever look for another pair. They are the most flattering, comfortable and flawless jeans I own. I’ve seen many other pairs in my closet come and go, but I have yet to find a pair from Abercrombie that I don’t love.

I’ve been a fast-fashion sweater shopper for years, but of all the pieces in my closet, I’ve found that poorly made sweaters have one of the shortest lives of any mass-market piece. Instead of loading up on trendy sweaters, I switched to adding one or two high-quality ones to my closet a year. Not only do they feel better, but they wear beautifully over time, and I don’t have to worry about pilling or pulling. My knitwear collection is small, but it’s something I’m glad I invested in, as I reap the rewards for most of the year.
