1. Little black dress
DVF fitted knit 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 stilettos
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
Burberry tuxedo jacket
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.

6. A classic cardigan

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
Rafe Bilbao minaudière
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
Kenneth Cole 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
