Ask Liz: 5 Items You Need

Today I want to talk about personal style. I consistently receive emails from readers asking me to assemble a list of essentials that every woman should have in her closet and it got me thinking about what I consider to be essentials. Yes, everyone should own a really good pair of jeans {fit is key}, a little black dress, a classic blazer, a statement shoe, a great bag, etc. but when I look at my closet these items don’t stand out to me as essentials in my personal style. We all describe our personal style in different ways so I want to give you five good bones to help you build a timeless and feminine wardrobe:
2. A fabulous dress that works for every occasion. 
3. Stripes, stripes, stripes, and more stripes
4. A coat that makes a subtle statement.
5. A lovely pair of flats
How would you describe your personal style? I would describe mine as feminine, classic, edgy with a bold flare {like those pants above, hellllo J.Crew!}. I am a sucker for color and print and love a feminine silhouette, but always base my outfits on one of the above.
