One of my readers recently asked if I could recommend an outfit for her mother who
has lost a lot of weight, something that will make her mother look beautiful. The
answer is simple, get her a basic, classic wardrobe piece that can be worn many
different ways and never goes out of style. Get her a 2-piece dress. I prefer those
that come with a belt and look like a shirtwaist dress. This dress looks great on its
own, but it can also be worn with a sweater, vest, or jacket. Wear a tank or tee on
top, unbutton the shirt and wear it as a shirt jac. Coming from a mother with years
of experience dressing other mothers, your mom will love this gift!
Where to find the dress? The red dress featured above comes from Lands’ End,
also check your local department store, Drapers and Damons, and Appleseeds.
I have featured a Ralph Lauren chambray 2-piece dress on my LookChangers DVD,
which features over 101 ways to wear a matching 2-piece dress.

A classic piece is a double-breasted pea coat, like this one from J. Crew
This Christmas, give a gift of the classics–clothes that will keep on giving for months, even years to come.
Classic clothes come with simple styling in both cut and color. There are no extremes of style and they have the timeless appeal of tradition. Purchased in your size, classic clothes are styled to fit almost anyone. And everyone has someplace to wear them. Because classics meet so many needs and because we’re used to seeing them, they can be worn year after year without looking dated.
If quality fabrics and construction have been chosen, classic clothes can be updated with new coordinates and accessories to create current fashion looks or to accommodate changes in your lifestyle or personal style. This adds up to a long-lasting fashion investment.
What are your favorite classic clothes pieces?
