Sweatsuit alternative: khaki shorts, belted, with classic white shirt. Make these shorts 10" longer and they're perfect for running errands or relaxing on the weekend.

A sweatsuit alternative: corduroy pants in a pop of color!

Have always loved J. Crew's classic denim jeans.

Combines two essentials: a great belted sweater and classic black skirt.

Timeless Day Dress. Can be dressed up with different belt, heels and fur coat. Or stay business appropriate. Or dress down with espadrilles or flip flops, hobo bag and sun hat.

Charming day dress.

A blazer is a must. This belted blazer is a must-have!

The blazer and skirt on the left are classic shapes that will be chic for years to come. Definite essential.

Who doesn't love a main staple, like the pencil skirt, in leather? Yum!

I like the added detail on the classic white dress shirt.
