    Q:Closet Overhaul… Tips to create a new basic wardrobe to match your new figure

    I need to overhaul my closet! I have purged quite a few things that I just did not wear anymore. But, I need to know how to correctly create a basic wardrobe and then build from there. I’m 41 this year and have gotten in shape with Pilates– now I want the wardrobe to match my new figure!

    I’m an insurance broker who wants to look hip yet successful… I feel like all I need is a big push and off I’ll go – just like riding a bike! My fashion has been all over the place over the years and I’d like to get and basics down and be able to add to them. Thank you. (Rehoboth, MA)

    A:

    Congratulations on your new figure, now it’s time to show it off with style.

    The best way to choose a core wardrobe is to put your life in a suitcase, so to speak. Hone in on what you need to wear for a 5-day trip and make those essentials your wardrobe basics.

    Start simple and build from there, but never scrimp on staples, these are the pieces that make any wardrobe work:

    .A great fitting pair of black pants

    .Well-cut jeans in the right wash

    .A slim black turtleneck

    .Perfect-fitting white T-shirt

    .Shaped jacket that hits your hips in a flattering way

    .Depending on your shape, a knee-length pencil or full skirt

    .A chic blouse or crisp shirt in a luscious color

    .Sexy heels

    .Simple flats in a modern shape

    Everything else is icing on the cake to create your personal look. This where you can have fun, add pieces high on style, and play switcharoo with a battery of quick change accessories. Keep in mind, that no wardrobe can be versatile, functional, and chic without a solid base.
