Do you have all the fashion essentials?

On Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, Tim always highlights the "basics" that every woman should have in their closet. I've been meaning to get a copy of this for my reference and here it is!

Tim Gunn’s 10 Essential Items Every Woman Needs

  • Basic black dress
  • Trench coat
  • Classic dress pants
  • Classic white shirt
  • Skirt
  • Blazer
  • Day dress
  • Cashmere sweater
  • Jeans
  • A comfortable alternative to a sweatsuit
Outside the cashmere sweater, I think I have something that represents the rest of the items, but they're not perfect. You know, not really nice classic pieces that will last for awhile. And I think that will be the goal... don't know how long it will take, but I hope to be a real grown up and have all the essentials!

By the way, season 4 of Project Runway starts on November 14th - yay!

4 fascinating comment(s) from my friends:

I need a trench coat and a cashmere sweater. I never can seem to break down to spend the money on a cashmere anything...yes I am cheap.

What's a day dress?

so, ladies. a good cashmere sweater is a fine investment. i have an oatmeal-ish colored turtleneck cashmere sweater that was my mom's... from probably the late 70s or early 80s. classic and still in great shape.

i, however, am totally lacking any of the dress/skirt type of items.
