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 56-year-old influencer Susie Wright.
Wright worked as a buyer at 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 few 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 (and wears herself). And because many of us rely on basics to build our signature wardrobes, Wright provided her edit of staple items she thinks work for everyone.
So without further ado, keep scrolling to check out the seven basics that this former Nordstrom buyer swears by for a chic wardrobe. You can also shop the staples below.
