THE UPDATE: Sexier fit + accent on accessories
Come closer. This low-key duo, toned to match, has been a quiet best-seller for years in catalogs and luxury stores alike simply because it flatters everyone. Dieted down to a leaner, body-grazing silhouette, it’s razor-sharp enough for the runway. We paired Badgley Mischka’s trim double knit merino wool and cashmere cardigan ($398) with Burberry’s slimmed-down tailored trousers ($375) — cut higher at the waist, roomier in the hip, narrower in the leg and slouchier in length — then carved out a waist with a Tory Burch belt ($125). Loro Piana top ($695). Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes ($815). Chanel bag ($2,495). Tiffany & Co. necklace.
2008 TIP: When in doubt, buy navy. It’s the hot neutral — looks as chic as black and mixes well with black or brown.
