Battle of the Classics

What is it about closing off the calendar year that feels so refreshingly final? Could it be the way we collectively release a surge of profound clarity, inching us closer towards great personal change? Maybe it’s not that deep. Maybe some of us just look forward to post Christmas week because we finally can relax in repeated Alo sweatpants all day with no houseguests to judge us. While some (cough:rich:cough cough:) lucky ones let the old year melt away under a cloudless sky, letting the tide roll January in while you lull away on a sun-warmed canvas hammock in Oil Nut Bay. If this isn't you this year, let’s try to manifest this for ourselves next year, ok? No matter where you are on the new year's cusp, even if it's standing in a corn-maze formation line at Zara trying to exchange your presents during your lunch break, we need to all make time for one thing before Presidents week hits. That’s right. We’re taking inventory in our closets, trading in some been-there-done that looks for newer and sleeker models. Because this year is going to be different. Right? 

Since you already have an idea in mind of what part of your personality you want to further highlight and deepen this year, your closet will have an easier time molding into a reflection of that in a more versatile way. And since we’re going to the same destination (Minimal-effort-chic-ville) - the purging of the closet doesn't become a migraine. It’s the items that we end up keeping vs the items we reach for time and time again that becomes the battle. Battle of the Classics if you will. Readers, take your seats. 


While black is known for its slimming effect, navy is equally as flattering. The deep, rich hue of navy can create a similar illusion of a streamlined silhouette, making it a great choice for any body type. Twiggy dress in navy is the perfect foundational dress for every closet. Whether you're attending a formal event or a casual gathering, a little navy dress can make you look effortlessly chic. Navy is also easier to transition from day to night wear. It also looks good on literally every skin tone. 

Denim Jacket < Blazer

One of the key advantages of a blazer is its versatility. While a denim jacket is often associated with casual outfits, a blazer can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion. Pair it with tailored trousers and a button-down shirt for a formal look, or wear it with jeans and a t-shirt for a more relaxed yet stylish ensemble. The possibilities are endless with a blazer- especially when she's a Katharine. 

Button Down = White Tee
While they may seem like simple and basic items, they are actually the foundation of a well-rounded capsule collection and that's why one isn’t better than the other. Their timeless versatility can be effortlessly dressed up or down, making them suitable for a wide range of occasions. Whether you're going for a first date with your future husband or grabbing a coffee to lighty spill on the front, the classic James Tee and  Donna Button Down can be easily styled to suit every need.
