Invest Wisely:


10 Classic
Pieces That
Pay Dividends

Anyone who claims that style doesn’t require strategy has yet to play offense in the face of amorphous dress codes, last-minute dinner parties, or any invite that includes the word “optional.” Here’s the game plan: Build a defensive line of classic pieces that always score (and provide a base for new adventures in styling season after season).
