1. A thin jacket in a neutral colour

2. A thin leather or pleather jacket

3, 4 & 5. The denim trio: Great jeans, a denim shirt, denim jacket

6. A white button shirt that fits properly

7 & 8. A blazer in a neutral colour and classic slim pants

9. A cardigan

10. A really great fitting, good quality tshirt in white and/ or black

11. Black/ grey jeans

12. White sneakers

13. Tan loafers/ sandals

14. A leather belt

15. A loose fitting, good black dress

Lastly, wash your face and do a tinted moisturiser, mascara and lip-ice.
