1. Little black dress

The LBD is the most obvious fashion must-have. This is the single most powerful item in my closet. Think clean, simple, short, sexy. Otherwise, it will appear dated next season.

2. Black stilletos


Jimmy Choo pumps

The ultimate conquest weapons. The mere sight of them renders men weak and women covetous. Sky high, slender heels give women a new gait, a new stance, and a newfound confidence. They have magical, intriguing powers, which transform a lady into a fox.

3. Black fitted blazer

Nothing can change a look more dramatically than a fitted blazer. Pair it with an LBD and look business savvy. Wear it with a pair of favorite shorts and look fashionable. Wear it with a skirt and look every bit the (respectable) babe during parent-teacher gatherings.

4. White polo shirt

A crisp white polo shirt always makes me feel sleek and polished. And when styled well, it can be utterly sexy too. But I do make it a point to keep it neat and crease-free all day.

5. Seamless thongs

If there is anything that is really visually offensive fashion-wise, it is the visible panty line. It is the biggest fashion faux pas of all. Absolutely unforgivable. Even the most coveted fashion piece turns into a disaster without the appropriate underwear. And the solution is very simple. A seamless thong. If you don’t believe me, ask your man.

6. A classic cardigan

Want to be comfortable and conservative sometimes without sacrificing your sense of style? Well, so do I. It’s my trick garment which I layer on top of a strapless jumpsuit, camisole, skirt, or skinny jeans. Easy!

7. A hefty cocktail ring

Nothing else can throw a knockout punch to your look better than a good-sized cocktail ring. Wear one and the message is clear. You’re no neophyte in fashion. Knock ’em dead, sugar.

8. Gold evening purse

You’re set for any formal occasion with a gold evening purse. It goes with any color and adds a dash of sparkle to your outfit. Use with your gowns, cocktail dresses, trousers, anything! With it, you’re ready to glitz up the party.

9. Ballerina flats

Definite keepers. No matter what the season, their style and shape never change. They’re pretty, comfortable, feminine, and versatile. Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to show your sweet side.

10. Perfect-fit denims


Marks & Spencer Sculpt & Lift jeans

Finding the perfect pair of denims is like searching for the pot of gold. Make time for the hunt since the monumental effort is worth all the trouble. Mine go well with practically everything in my wardrobe—tees, polo shirts, flirty tops, flashy jewelry, ballerina flats, and stilettos. Hot, hot, hot.
