Must Haves: Triangles Are The New Black

20 Pieces Of Statement Jewelry That Will Make Your Clothes Look Like Different Clothes

I am a big gigantic proponent of only owning a simple, minimalistic set of high-quality shirts, pants, and dresses. It saves money in the long run, it's versatile, it's good for the environment, and it takes a lot of the guesswork, time, and agony out of getting dressed in the morning. My day-to-day…

Fashion Math: Summer Suits + Statement Necklaces

Everyone should have at least one plain, well-tailored suit in their closet for interviews and business meetings, but that doesn’t mean you have to lock it away until such an occasion arises.
