Build the ultimate f/ w ‘ 16 wardrobe with just three key purchases
Before you go spending $$$, take Roopal Patel’s advice and make sure you’ve got the basics in place. The senior vice-president of fashion direction at Saks Fifth Avenue recommends building on those essential items—“The perfect white shirt, the LBD [little black dress], the classic pump or heel, the perfect jeans, an easy blazer, a timeless handbag, a piece of statement jewellery and a great lipstick”—and then layering novelty pieces on top. Already all over that? Here are the so-ontrend items she suggests investing in this autumn. L.g.
1. Velvet Aquazzura velvet flats ($910, at Saks Fifth Avenue, saks.com)
3. Embroidered Bag Alexander McQueen embroidered clutch ($4,680, at Saks Fifth Avenue, saks.com) n
2. Military- inspired jacket Burberry Prorsum twill jacket ($3,375, at Saks Fifth Avenue, saks.com)
