A Stylish Woman's Must-haves

Posted by Sam Pierri

1. Classic Black Pumps

Some days we just need that extra-oomph. For days where lazy jeans and a plain white shirt just seems ideal, or in contrast, when an unexpected client meeting comes up - the right shoes just do so much for you.

2. A timepiece that speaks for you

Is it large-faced? Is it square, rounded? Is it a Panerai or a Cartier? A Stein or a Rolex? Or - is it unnamed?

Let's admit it, one of the first things we notice when we meet somebody is - their watch. What we wear on our wrist speaks more for us than we care to notice. When we shake somebody's hand, most of the time I can vouch that respect is formed from what a new friend, a potential business partner or more importantly, a superior, sees.

An old inherited classic will tell them that family is important for you. 

A smart green-faced Rolex will tell them you are up with the times, confident and capable. 

On the other hand, an unnamed piece will speak either of your elegance or your simplicity.

Nowadays it is important to note that times have changed - considerably. Where it used to take years to gain trust - on occasions they can now be formed by singularity of mind, by childhood stories that relate one to another, by likemindedness and common interests, by a common vision, and most simply, by a first impression.

7. And who can say it enough, the perfect little black dress

Complements your body and hugs you in all the right places. It's the one you can wear again and again and still get compliments for. It's like finding a partner (a unicorn, more like) - if you chance upon the right one, don't you let it go.
