We have to admit that dressing in the morning requires more than “3C”: being comfy, chic and confident. The outfit we pick needs to be “multitasking” too. There are so many things to do everyday and we want the outfit we put on in the morning can help us accomplish all of them with minimal change: from sending kids to school to client meeting to dinner and happy hours.

That’s why I focus on featuring and sharing versatile pieces and quick outfit transforming tips in my blog (like previous posts here, herehere and more). Today’s looks from Olivia Palermo are also a great example: by changing one or two pieces, you get different but equally stylish outfits.

There are more we can learn from these two looks: the way Olivia Palermo mixed and matched winter and spring pieces for in-between season (keep the turtleneck sweater and wool coat we worn in winter, pair them with fresh printed skirt and bright clutch), and the way she nailed the black and white trend (keep the color palette simple and classic, then add one or two eye-catching hue with accessories to brighten up the monochrome look).

Slowly but surely, the weather in New York is getting warm now. Many mid-season sales have started. I want to take full advantage of Kate Spade’s two day F&F sale and get this beautiful cobalt blue trench coat and the bright orange cross body bag that I have been lusting. With an extra 25% (use code S13FFUS) on top of the 60% off, I think it’s time to bring it home! What’s your find for the new season?

Today’s wardrobe essential that I want to talk about is denim shirt. Denim is such an iconic fabric that perfectly reflects American spirit. There must be at least one denim piece in every woman’s wardrobe right now: whether jeans, jacket, shorts or, our main focus today, denim shirt.

It’s such a versatile, seasonless and ageless piece: you can wear it with Continue reading Same Basics, Different Looks (Wardrobe Essential Part IV)
