Advice from an Expert: "The One Hundred" by Nina Garcia

We have always heard the fashion experts talk about the essential items every woman should have in their wardrobe. The little black dress, a perfect pair of jeans (or a few), t-shirts in a variety of colors, maybe a cashmere sweater, a chic pair of heels and a clutch for a night out.... and the list goes on.... but what about your jewelry?


Well we did some digging, and while a jewelry store can always provide you with an endless list of Jewelry essentials, we thought we would go to a pro and get some solid advice.


Nina Garcia is the editor-in-chief of ELLE and has been a judge on “Project Runway” since its launch in 2004. She has worked in the magazine business for over 20 years and has served as a style expert on programs including Today, Good Morning America, The View, and CNN, to name a few. Ms Garcia has also authored a number of fashion books over the years, and one in particular caught our eye.... The One Hundred - A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own.


In this great little guide, you'll find a host of helpful tips and advice to make sure your wardrobe is perfectly complete. We especially liked the jewelry related items that made the list...



Bangles - Brooches - Charm Bracelets

Cocktail Rings - Cuffs - Diamond Studs

"Style is a deeply personal expression of who you are, and every time you dress, you are asserting a part of yourself." - Nina Garcia
