Today's post is a round up of pieces Jen loves. They're all pieces you won't regret adding to your closet, regardless of the season. Let us know what you think in the comments!


In case you missed it, we profiled this jumpsuit by female-owned brand, Rivet Utility, on Instagram last week. It's SO good, it's worth repeating. Jen styled it on herself above with a popped collar, rolled sleeve, simple pendant necklace and a great shoe boot from Frye (see below for more detail on the boot). What you won't believe about the jumpsuit is how comfortable it is. The fabric is stretchy and fabulous and the fit is terrific. We love the Bigwig and, as of this week, it comes in corduroy (middle photo above) as well as the original cotton (on Jen and in photo at right).



The Frye boots Jen is wearing with the Rivet Utility jumpsuit are a great addition to any closet. Isabel Marant kicked off a key trend several years ago - the low-heeled shoe boot with a dip in the front and side zip - with her Dicker boot and they have become a fashion cult favorite for a reason. The dip in the front makes for a flattering leg line. And they are amazingly comfortable - you can walk the city streets for miles and feel no pain. Frye's version is just as good - and for half the price. It has a little bit of a higher heel, but is still comfortable. Sometimes in life the knock off is just as good as the real thing,



Rag & Bone put out a great knit collection this year and these are Jen's two favorite pieces. The white alpaca leans in the direction of an open weave, so it wouldn't hurt to put a little white tank underneath. It's a true white, which is more flattering on most people than cream. The wide sleeve and soft texture is awesome for winter.


The pink knit is part of Rag & Bone's Pierce cashmere line. It has a cute split at the cuff and it looks very adorable half-tucked into a black pant or jean. The color is beautiful in real life.



This metallic jean by Mother is fantastic. The important thing is NOT to treat this as a fancy pant. It's much more chic to wear this super casually with a denim shirt or a black sweater and a shoe boot. It's a fun and different piece that not everyone else will be wearing, kind of in the same vein as a leather pant. It bears repeating that Mother jeans have the perfect stretch and this one is no different. It's a slam dunk.



You know how Jen loves designer Dries van Noten. If you want to splurge for the holidays on a coat that will be cool for the next 15 years, look no further. It's meant to be worn a little oversized with a few layers underneath. Super, super chic.



Joseph makes this awesome boot. As you know, Jen has been putting all of her clients into lug soled boots this season. This happens to be a great version of the trend in burgundy. Wear it with monochromatic outfits as a little pop of color. Also, note that Joseph is having a huge sale. We profiled many of their most excellent pieces this season; check out our past posts, here, here and here to view our picks, most of which are now on sale.



The love affair with Mother denim continues. This is a great black jean with their signature stretch and a perfectly cut wide leg that's flattering on almost every body type. Their denim is always comfortable and soft. Wear it with the Rag & Bone sweaters above or the J. Crew shirts below.

Jen is obsessed with this piece by Dries van Noten. It's like a flannel shirt and a winter dress had a baby. It's a splurge, as you would expect, but it's gorgeous. Wear it with a chunky black boot and automatically win the best dressed prize.




It's hard to find a shirt to layer under sweaters that doesn't add too much bulk. This shirt from J. Crew does the job perfectly and at a great price (made even better now with 20% off using code FESTIVE). The shirt comes in black and white and is slim and stretchy. It looks good on its own, but it's true purpose in life is as a layer.



We profiled a great black and white houndstooth wrap by Rag & Bone a few weeks ago and it sold out almost immediately. We heard many of you were disappointed, so here's a similar look, also from Rag & Bone. Wear this over your coat sitting by the fire. The blue color is our favorite, but it comes in camel and olive as well.




We love a good Birkenstock for running around. This is the one you wear now. It's like an outdoor slipper and the ultimate in cool-weather comfort.





Here's a little something by Lelet NY to brighten up your holiday look, whether on Zoom or in real life. Jen owns this headband called the "half-olive" and she loves it. It's comfortable because the band is fabric, not metal, and it's thin so it blends into your hair. The crystal embellishment is that little bit of bling that you need to feel festive. It's reminiscent of past-season looks by Prada at a tiny fraction of the price.



Let's just take a minute to enjoy the fantasy that one day we will again travel....and when we do, we will need a good beach cover-up. If you've ever been on the search for one, you know they are hard to find in a sea of cheesy options. Well, it turns out that Natalie Martin makes one that is just about perfect. It's a great cut and material, so good in fact that you can wear it over jeans as a tunic. Stock up now and your future self will thank you.

Today, we're continuing the theme of what we want to wear right now. We're not looking too far into the future. Instead, our eyes are trained on comfortable, wearable pieces with a cozy at-home vibe. These late-fall pieces will see us through the holidays with chic comfort and a hint of luxury.

The brilliance of this Isabel Marant Etoile jacket is the rose gold metallic detail around the top. It happens to be super flattering around the face and even better in real life than in the photo. This everyday casual jacket is totally different than what everyone else will be wearing (we're looking at you black, puffy Canada Goose jacket!) in a great way.



Yes, this Rag & Bone jacket is short-sleeved. It's all about the layering. Wear a thick cashmere sweater or even a slim down jacket underneath. This is another good choice that won't be on every other woman in America. Wear it with a skinny jean or pant and a chunky boot.


This hooded poncho wrap by Rag & Bone is such an easy and versatile piece. It has buttons you can use to keep it in place after you wrap it around your layers. It would even be good belted. And this burgundy color is beautiful and very wearable. Wear it cozied up to an outdoor fireplace. Or a patio lamp!


Joseph makes this amazing chunky knit sweater. You can wear it with its matching skirt. Or put it over black skinny pants/jeans or leather leggings (which happen to be a nice warm choice for winter - see below).



This Joseph sweater just might be the perfect piece for this year's low-key holiday season. It incorporates a little festive sparkle without overdoing it. You can pair it with black pants if you're hanging out with your family at home. Or even if you're just on Zoom. And because it's not too much, you don't need to save it only for special occasions. Wear it with jeans and a little boot on an everyday basis when you're feeling just a little extra.



We love this Nili Lotan boyfriend sweater. It's a great example of the stepped up basic -- high quality, you can wear it multiple ways and it will go the extra mile. It's a beautiful layering piece as shown and works well half tucked or out.



This sweater by Joseph is another great basic and also a terrific bottom layer. It's a pretty, soft (merino) wool and in navy or black, you can't go wrong. It's fine enough to layer under a blazer and the sleeves are long enough to peek out. It's also a really nice choice paired with a silk skirt - a chic combo that Jen loves.



A good leather legging costs a pretty penny and this one by Joseph is no exception. However, if there is an empty spot in your closet waiting for a pair, this one is a great choice and you will have it for a decade. A key detail: there is an elasticized waist but only in the back, so the front waistband sits flat. We love these with an oversized silk shirt or the long Joseph sweater above. Pair them with any boot on the blog.


Tips for buying leather leggings: 1) never, never buy a side-zip leather pant - they are very unforgiving; 2) only buy leather pants that pull on; 3) buy the tightest pant you can because they stretch naturally and you do not need a saggy leather legging.




These jeans by Frame are a great find. They are slightly cropped so they show off a cute shoe or boot (hem them to your ankle if need be and keep the cuff detail). This is the rare year-round jean with a shape that's flattering on just about every body type.



You might not be able to tell at first glance, but these Vince pants are made of a soft knit. With a little pleat for structure, you can pass them off as a trouser pant even though they are much more cozy. Half tuck one of the sweaters above and go. Key detail: there is an elasticized waist in the back for added comfort.



New brand alert: Rivet Utility. This woman-owned brand based in LA is focused exclusively (for now) on making the perfect jumpsuit and have they ever succeeded. Jen has one and is obsessed. It fits just right and has exactly the right amount of stretch in the fabric. We consider it a huge win to have a one-piece outfit that goes from day to night with a change of accessories. Pop the collar and roll the sleeve, put on a cute boot and go. So easy and modern.


Clergerie makes these gorgeous boots of a lifetime. This type of casual sock-boot is not easy to find and they are SO good. They are particularly nice with a wider leg pant but they would be equally amazing with the leather leggings above. We love the solid wedge/platform sole since it perfectly solves the height + comfort equation. These are going quickly, so if you're tempted, best to act fast.



For a low-heeled boot, we are loving these by Rag & Bone. They have the on-trend lug sole and the zipper detail is a nice addition. We love a sturdy, chic boot for travel or walking around town. These could be Chloe or Balenciaga but they are half the price.

Today's post is all about basic pieces done right. Jen's approach to building clients' wardrobes always begins with investing in foundational pieces that go the extra mile. What they have in common is quality - in the fabrics, the cuts and the detailing - and versatility.

Here's a great example of a stepped up basic. Theory's peacoat is a classic cut, but in this navy-based plaid, it reads like something more modern and high design. And it's perfect with everyone's favorite fall uniform: jeans and a sweater.



Apiece Apart makes this cute fuzzy bomber jacket. It's cozy and the nubby fabric gives the basic bomber silhouette a whole new look. Throw it on over casual gear like your workout clothes or dress it up with a good pair of trouser pants. It's super wearable and comes in ivory as well as the black shown above.



Jen can't get enough of this cape by Joseph. This is a GREAT investment piece that is both timeless and chic. Wear it over a sweater or on top of another jacket as shown at left. There are not many pieces that are as beautiful over a ball gown as they are over workout clothes. This cape is like a modern version of the pashmina - but it doesn't make you look like an escapee from the 90s. Update: a LOT of Joseph has just gone on sale for 20% off, including this cape! Check out some of our other Joseph picks from last month here to scoop up some great deals.



The right sweater dress can be an elusive buy. This one by Nili Lotan really fits the bill. It's cozy and cut right. If you are shorter, don't be afraid to get it hemmed by a good seamstress. Wear it with a colored boot or a cute sneaker or the on-trend See by Chloe boot we profiled a few weeks ago. Throw a jean jacket or the Joseph cape over top. This might be the ideal thing to wear to a holiday dinner at home with family this year.



On the left, check out these Vince boots. They go with literally any style of pant. The lug sole is very in this season and we are leaning into it. We need our comfortable walking shoes to dress up or down since we may never want to get back into heels again after this long hiatus!


Speaking of comfortable, Steve Madden makes the quilted sneakers on the right (they also come in all white). The quilted look nods to (much) more expensive styles by Prada and Chanel. And the wedge gives you an always welcome boost. These would be adorable with the Nili Lotan sweater dress.

We like this RE/DONE sweater so much, we've profiled it twice now. Today we're putting it with a classic T shirt, also by RE/DONE. The T shirt is a perfect example of a better basic - high quality fabric (not sheer at all), cut well and works as a layering piece all year. Jen has several of them. On bottom, we like these navy blue pants by Nili Lotan. Wear them now with boots or with sandals and sneakers in warmer weather. Throw on this whole outfit with the shoes above and go.



Jen loves a striped sweater. It just makes your "jeans and a sweater" uniform a little more whimsical and fun. The pink/black stripe by Ganni at top is a chic color combo. The jeweled shoulder is a nod to Simone Rocha - a little bling without being cheesy. Wear it with a wide-leg blue or black jean or a dress pant. At bottom, we love this Nili Lotan black/red stripe with its subtler shoulder buttons. Even better: it's half-price on her site right now (final sale, runs true to size, DM us if you're unsure of sizing).



This cashmere sweater by Vince is a great example of why it makes sense to pay a premium for a better basic. Each detail is just that much better: the V-neck is exactly the right depth; it's 100-percent cashmere so it's soft and holds its shape; the length covers your waistband and hits just right; the sleeve is longer than the cheaper versions; and the colors are perfect. Truly, you can wear a great V-neck sweater with ANYTHING: over a dress, with jeans, with a silk shirt underneath. It should be a staple of your winter wardrobe. We love it the navy, grey and black shown above and it also comes in a gorgeous burgundy.


Mother makes the best jeans with the perfect amount of stretch. This pair happens to be nicely high waisted and goes with everything we posted today. A true black, stretchy jean with the right amount of flare is a wardrobe workhorse.
