The 10 Essentials For The Classic Women-Fall 2013

There are certain friends of mine that every time I see them they just look perfectly put together, my friend Lisa Ackerman, a personal stylist at Neiman’s in Palo Alto, is one of those.  When I compliment her she always responds with, “Oh, I’ve had this piece forever”, which means she knows how to pick classic clothing that has mileage.  So when my very beautiful and elegant friend, Karen, told me that Lisa had helped her with some new pieces for fall,  I thought I’d pop over and let her guide us to those perfect items for our closets for this season!  So here are the ten things she’s crazy about and what she suggests to update your wardrobe for this fall/winter.

THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS (LBD):

A timeless piece. Here’s the one that she picked for Karen, above.  Look for one that best fits your body and style.  I found a beautiful straight fitted black dress that will give me lots of use for years to come.  Although the LBD is timeless, red is another option this fall/winter!

THE MANOLO BLAHNIK BB PUMP:

Bridget Bardot inspired, these pumps can be ordered in five different heal heights, from 2″ to 4.5″.   The pointy toe is in!

THE SKIRT:

Minis and Pencils

Wear them with opaque tights. The brands Lisa suggests is Wolford or Commando.

Or… the Moto/Biker Boot for a more edgy look.

LEATHER LEATHER LEATHER:

A Jacket is a great way to incorporate leather, but leather pants, tops and details are everywhere this season.

EVERYTHING LACE: Lace dresses, inserts, blouses and even booties!

THE STATEMENT COAT: Here is Lisa showing me some round shouldered Loro Piana Coats that are both a statement and elegant.  Don’t be afraid to buy a real show stopper!

THE MINI HANDBAG:

These scaled down handbags look great and will take you from day to evening.

THE STATEMENT PIECE NECKLACE: You all know that I’m quite partial to Camille K., so “Pamela Says”  to shop her collection. Here is the  Camille K. “Lacy Necklace”.

There are many other trends you will see this fall, like plaid, luxe sweatshirts, classic winter white, capes, power suits and turtlenecks,  but these ten were especially key and what Lisa is suggesting for her clients. They are not only very wearable for the classic woman, but they will carry over for many seasons.

Set up a time to shop with Lisa Ackerman at Neiman Marcus in Palo Alto , she’s wonderfully talented at what she does and is such fun to be with!
