Prioritize your purchases: start with the perfect pant!

The business side of the fashion industry has always fascinated me, both during my studies and as a professional. Several years ago, I listened to an incredible podcast with Sara Blakely, the founder of  Spanx, which was always a go-to brand for me as a former Nordstrom Stylist. Fast forward to now, and everybody’s still wearing Spanx, especially workwear and pants. It just keeps getting better and better!

For many of us, Spanx is a household name when it comes to shapewear. I don’t know about you, but it’s hard to imagine getting dressed without a piece or two! Spanx has evolved into a lifestyle brand with several collections you’ll see below. Their mission statement is inspirational and clever: “We think forward, and give back. We believe women can do anything. And together, we believe we will make the world a better place … one butt at a time!”

Today’s post is about some of my favorite Spanx pieces that work for everyone. Trust me on this, I’ve helped hundreds of women with these items! For example, their “Perfect” collection truly is perfect. The styles fit really well, and are super flattering and slimming. The AirEssentials collection is ideal for travel, or casual days when you want to look stylish yet feel comfortable. And finally, there are the shapewear pieces — all of which I’ve tried or own myself. These are essentials for all wardrobes at this point, and I know you’ll love them as much as I do!

The Perfect Pant

Left: AirEssentials Mock Neck Top | Split Hem Wide Leg Pant | Right: Short Sleeved Crew Neck Top | Hi-Rise Flare Pant | Bag

Did you know the starting point of every outfit is the right bottom? It’s something I learned when I was helping clients in the dressing room, and it works every time. Once you get the bottom right, simply add a neutral shoe and then pretty much anything on top will look great. There are several styles I’m sharing with you that are best sellers, which means everyone loves them! And, here’s the best part: they’re machine washable, super slimming, and available in petite and tall sizes (all the way to 3x). Talk about size inclusive!
