Woolen dress slacks

Katherine Hepburn’s style made these slacks a necessary fashion classic for women for the last 50 years. This is not an area to skimp, buy the best pair you can afford and always make sure that the lining is durable and well made. If you can only afford one pair, make it black. If you can afford more camel and grey are great choices.
As the weather gets cooler, you will be looking for warmer tops. The turtleneck is a classic that never loses its appeal. They come in every color of the rainbow and while cotton is the least expensive choice, cashmere is a luxury option.
A blazer is the workhorse in a fall wardrobe. It can be the jacket for a suit or a great leather blazer for weekends or nights on the town. Black and brown are classic colors but adding jewel tones can take a blazer to the next level. Velvet or velour are also fabrics that make for a fashion classic. A red blazer can transition into winter and plum or burgundy are equally as popular. Choose classic styles for the more expensive pieces and go current style with inexpensive but stylish jackets.
A pencil skirt is flattering to almost every woman’s figure and whether you chose black or a more fashionable olive or brown, you are sure to use this piece almost every day.
