I. Start with Basics for Royal Opulence - The core basics include black pants, jacket, pencil skirt and blouses. Think of creating a cake using the best flour, sugar and essential ingredients. Once baked, a cake designer adds frosting, roses, elements, color and texture. Clothing accessories similar to frosting goodies makes basic apparel glitter amongst the dreary and boring. Always spend more on basics than on accessories. The following are ideas that can help locate the perfect pieces for Fall 2013. Print out, either purchase the suggested or search online or in store for similar apparel at different price points. These are some of my favorite Forever Chic Style brands.
