Happy almost New Year everybody! I thought I’d throw my own best of 2012 list into the mix. Hopefully this will offer you some mindless reading tomorrow while you’re in your pjs watching Bravo.
Behold my favorite sleeper hits of the year. These are fabulous items I’ve scored for either myself or my clients in 2012. Six unassuming pieces that have made closets happier and more fulfilled. Cheers to that!
This sleeveless number from Theory has proven to be a godsend for a variety of body types. Perfect as an office shell under blazers, or with jeans for date night. They were making it in a bunch of colors, but unfortunately, it’s now hard to find online. Good news, though– little birdies over at Theory have told me it’s going to reappear on shelves this coming year.
A personal fave. These snake-embossed flats from Loeffler Randall have made dressing–and walking–so much easier this past year. They add an element of fun to every outfit, while still remaining neutral and comfy. Win win.
For the look of a skinny without the painted-on, i-can’t-breathe element, Paige’s skyline straights are simply thee best. They’re slim enough to look sleek and polished, but with enough room at the ankle to balance your top half. I adore these jeans.
My, my Penney’s. Who knew you could come out with such sleek menswear? I tip my hat to the 2012 guy styles at JCP. Their sportcoats especially. If you’re looking for slim-cut separates in understated patterns, look to JCPenney for budget-friendly picks. Hopefully they can keep it up in 2013.
Gibson’s knit blazers were my number one go-to this year for petite clients in need of a casual-style blazer that didn’t overwhelm them. Brilliant with jeans and a longer top underneath (because it’s a bit more cropped than a suit-style blazer).
If you like leggings, you’ll love the Pixie. They offer the silhouette of a legging but with more substance, so you don’t feel naked on your lower half . Style them with longer blazers, men’s style button-downs, and chunky sweaters.
Happy 2013, all! Here’s to a stylish, comfy, sartorially fulfilling new year.
