A stylish trench is a Classic wardrobe staple. It’s the layering piece every woman needs. The trench coat can elevate your look and can be worn…rain or shine.

Style Tips:

First and foremost invest in a trench that fits you to a T. The trench shape should fit your fame and flatter your figure. Pay special attention to the length. Think: not to long,not to short…. Just right!

A trench coat is best when lined. It allows the fabric to drape better over your body.

Details of your trench matter. Check button quality and buttonholes to insure stitching is secure. Also take note of even top stitching and secure belt loops. Lastly, the belt- does it slide through the belt loops with ease and is it long enough?

Buy well…. Buy Once! . The trench is a style staple that can be in your wardrobe rotation for years to come. Purchase the best quality trench that you can afford. If it’s going to hang in your closet for years to come it best be something that you love wearing with confidence and a “bit of happy.”

I’ve been a fan of the wardrobe staple leather motorcycle (abbreviation Moto) jacket for as long as I can remember. Among the absolute favorites in my closet is my beloved Vakko moto that I purchased more than 10 years ago and spent a small fortune on BUT the leather was “like butter” and all these years later it still stands the test of time. If I can advise you on purchasing one item that you can wear year after year with a plethora of fashion possibilities I urge you to buy a leather or faux leather moto jacket. You will thank me in the morning and for many morning to come.

Not a fan of “Basic Black” try a neutral tone…think taupe/grey/brown.

The pencil skirt is not only a wardrobe classic but a stylish staple that  looks good on EVERYONE! The only rule of thumb to make this wardrobe wonder WONDERFUL on you is to check the fit. Make sure it doesn’t pull, bunch, sag or bag and you’ll be in business. If your seeking to find the perfect pencil and it just doesn’t happen-consider purchasing one that fits you smoothly in the hip area and have it tailored to fit. For my complete wardrobe style rules on the Pencil Skirt click onto http://www.gotoglamourgirl.com/2009/07/22/pencil-it-in/
