As a fashion website based in L.A., we’re constantly going to local celebrity stylists for their take on what wardrobe workhouses every woman should own. From our own interviews and ones we’ve read from other sites, we’ve noticed that the same three products are constantly called out time and again. Read ahead to find out about the three key items, straight from the women who style everyone from Blake Lively and Lupita Nyong’o to Tracee Ellis Ross and Sarah Paulson.
“A piece you should absolutely invest in is a perfectly fitting blazer” — Erin Walsh
“A tailored blazer is classic, feminine and looks great on all body types. Pair it with anything: jeans, little dresses, trousers, skirts. Make sure to find one that fits you well and accentuates your waist” — Nicole Chavez
Next up, check out the shoes our resident stylist Micaela Erlanger swears by.
“Best, most minimal underwear there is—no seams, no bumps, and surprisingly comfortable.” — Kate Young on seamless Commando underwear
“This thong is in the kit of every working stylist, and therefore used in photo shoots nationwide. If it’s good enough for supermodels, then I suppose it’s good enough for me.” — Nikki Ogunnaike on seamless Commando underwear
“It is the basis for all of the looks we create. It’s simple, smart, and it’s this little secret that’s available to everyone. It’s rocket science for underwear.” — Karla Welch on seamless Commando underwear
“Everybody needs it. Every culture and subculture has used the white t-shirt. That’s where the genius is.” — Karla Welch
“A v-neck tee is flattering because it shows off some of your décolleté, giving an illusion of a longer neck area,” — Cher Coulter
“I always suggest updating your T-shirt collection a few times a year, since tees are easily worn and show wear quickly.” — Michaela Erlanger
