Simply put – style is personal. We all have a certain fashion disposition – be it a love for the contemporary, a devotion to the classics, or an affection for all things avant-garde. To help figure out your sartorial sensibility – and dress it – check out our guide below.


For the Classicist
Your style is well-defined and eternally chic. Opt for classic staples like a crisp button-down and tailored-to-perfection trousers that will never go out of style.

For the Individualist
You experiment with an enviable fearlessness. Never shy away from bold colors or patterns (like the ombre sweater below) and always seek out avant-garde cuts.

For the Modernist
Your look is an artful curation of tradition and trends. Embrace clean lines, a monochrome palette, and contemporary pairings like a casual tee under a dressy double-breasted blazer.

Holiday Must-Haves

‘Tis the season for parties, impromptu get-togethers, and festive dinners out with friends. With calendars filling up and fêtes inching closer, we’re trying to find a minute to get our closets in order. We turned to our expert stylist, Lauren, to find out about the top holiday essentials that everyone should have in their arsenal.


1. A classic little black dress. Look for styles with a little something extra like black lace inserts, metallic threading, or subtle beading.
2. A statement coat. Steer clear from the classics, and dare to wear an exaggerated shape like an asymmetrical silhouette or a coat with a funnel neck. Multi-textural coats – leather and wool, tweed and nylon – are also great. And you can always go even bolder with funky accessories: brooches, belts, fur shawls, and more.
3. An architectural clutch. Pick an oversized style and go for bold colors and textured materials. Try something in processed leathers for a big impact – it’s a less expected choice.


1. A pair of dark jeans. The ultimate dress-up-or-down piece, this denim needs to be fitted and a bit more formal. Go for a solid, dark wash with a heavier feel.
2. A sharp blazer. A well-cut blazer always looks refined. Try styles in rich textures like wool, tweed, or heavy velvet.
3. A scarf. Pair an easy, soft scarf with any look, and it instantly adds a dapper edge – plus it’s warm and cozy. Solid colors look great, but if you’re feeling adventurous, don’t shy away from a print either.

The holidays should be all about joy – not stress – so keep these must-haves on hand and have a blast working the season’s party circuit.
