We routinely look to women over 50 for expert sartorial advice. After all, this set is often particularly experienced in curating well-rounded wardrobes after years of style trial and error. One, in particular, we follow for such fashion inspiration is 55-year-old influencer Susie Wright.
Wright worked as a buyer for Nordstrom for a decade and became a Portland-based personal stylist 12 years ago. She’s also been working on her blog, So Susie, for the last two years. So it’s safe to say that Wright just gets it. Given her retail knowledge and expertise in helping people look and feel their best, we thought we’d tap her for insight on the specific items she routinely recommends to women (and wears herself). And because many of us rely on basics to build our signature wardrobes, Wright provided her edit of those staple items she thinks work for all women.
So without further ado, keep scrolling to check out the seven basics that this former Nordstrom buyer swears by for a chic wardrobe. And if you’re shopping at the moment, you can also shop the staples as well.
