InStyle’s 10 Things Every Woman Must Own

InStyle Magazine asked celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez what every woman should have in their closet. According to Chavez, there are 10 key pieces every woman must have. I made this my curvy-bargain version.

I think I have maybe five of these items. Oh oh! Another reason to go shopping. What do think? Is the stylist on point?

1. Black Blazer

2. Leopard Print Scarf

3. Red Flats

4. Striped Shirt

5. Statement Necklace

6. Little Black Dress

7. Opaque Tights

8. Oversize Watch

9. Classic Trench

10. Flared Jeans

    AWESOME!! you're so right, love the must haves and I totaly agree, the things we cant live without! <3

    i think most of the list is on point and def crucial. the leopard scarf and red flats are maybes, i think, and should be the last basics to be got. but i honestly think striped tees are a passing fad. i mean, they're cute at times but i just wouldn't put them on MUST status along w/ the lbd or the trench.

    I think the list is pretty on point but it should be just 'flats' or 'jeans' rather than specific colours or styles because obviously everyone's style is different! A blazer is definitely my must have though!

    Great post!! I think it's on point. Very classic pieces. And I totally agree with Stephanie. Don't think I can do the flared jeans, I would rather do skinnies. :) Looks like I need to get red flats and a classic trench!!

    I think it's a good list but not sure about the scarf. A scarf yes, but is animal print that universal? It is now but as a staple? Not so sure. I like how you stuck in the "suede" flats. LOL

  • BabyFabzMom

    Oh wow…I better get shopping! I only have 3 things from this list.

    flared jeans are back?

  • Kemi

    ^^ i didn't think they ever left…oh or do you mean are they back in the spotlight again? LOL

    @moe, Stephanie and Len

    What I took from the red flats, leopard scarf and striped tee suggestions is to purchase bold colored flats–red, mustard yellow, green..etc, a classic print or patterned scarf (leopard never really goes out of style) and maybe a patterned shirt..I almost never like the color suggestions that come with these lists but I like the basics
