An Editor's Ultimate Closet Edit

In the morning rush of getting kids clean/fed/dressed and yourself put together, you need a wardrobe that works like a stylish puzzle. These five garments have been life tested and crazy-working-mom approved by yours truly. I promise they will help you look flawless and spend less time fishing for fashion finds in your closet. In fact, you may never need to shop again … well, maybe just to get more of these items in the fresh colors of the season!

Tees by Tina

Lattice Dress and Textured Pencil Skirt $85 and $50

TINA Stephens Hamptons Boutique – 89 Main Street, Southampton, 631-259-3456   

One size fits most sounds ridiculous, but this brand lives up to the promise. I wore the same items pre- and post-pregnancy, and have shared them with women ranging in size 0 to 12!

Moto Vegan Leather & Suede Leggings $128

These are – hands down – the best leggings you’ll ever own; they’re form-fitting, yet breathable! Pair with a blouse and your go-to blazer for a sharp, comfortable office look. 


Elizabeth Daniel NY
The Tuxedo Shirt $138

Finally, an oxford-like shirt that doesn’t bunch up when tucked into your pants or skirt. I love to layer it under a short-sleeve dress, when the season calls for extra warmth. Oh, and it’s machine washable!


Ramy Brook
Robi Sleeveless Top $295

This silky top is perfectly draped, with just enough coverage to make it office appropriate, yet still a sexy winner for post-work drinks. This is another one of those get-them-in-every-color staples you’ll keep turning to day after day.
