A woman’s clothes tells you a lot about her personality, as such we love to delve inside the wardrobes of some of the biggest tastemakers and influencers.
Here, we get up close and personal with Shira Suveyke, Executive Vice President and Chief Merchant at theoutnet.com and her enviable closet.
is polished and feminine, but it has an edge that reflects my nonstop travels and the energy of NYC.
is having a unique perspective; trends come and go but style lasts forever. That said, in my role as EVP and Chief Merchant, I must respond to a constantly evolving industry, so I am always looking to new trends and love to refresh my wardrobe.
I am inspired…
by the strong and empowered women. My grandmother is my original style icon – she truly embodied elegance and I inherited many of my favourite pieces from her extensive wardrobe. My favourite memories are playing dress up with her and exploring her never-ending archive of treasures.
My most treasured fashion item…
is my vintage Rolex – I wear it every day.
My fail-safe style go-to…
I can’t go without my classic Saint Laurent black pumps and Chloé boots. It’s all about the shoes for me, particularly heels – I’ve lost count of how many pairs I own.
The inside of my wardrobe…
is extremely organised, so everything has a place. I arrange by summer and winter wardrobes and within these wardrobes I also organise by clothing category and colours. I also have shelves dedicated to my handbag and shoe collections, which sit alongside artwork.
My fashion essentials include…
great accessories, bags and shoes really do make an outfit and if you invest wisely they will last a lifetime.
Shira Suveyke’s Ultimate Top Tips
Tailoring – it’s a classic! It’s always on the runway. Every woman should own a beautifully constructed blazer, tailored pants and a pencil skirt that fits them perfectly.
Something like a black blazer is so versatile – it can be styled with everything, from cocktail dresses to denim. Designers that do tailoring brilliantly are Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen, and although they are expensive, trust me – they are worth every cent. Any tailored pieces by these designers sell out on theoutnet.com instantly.
When shopping for clothes
First and foremost, buy for your shape, otherwise you’ll buy pieces that will never leave your wardrobe. Also don’t be pressured to buy something just because it’s a bargain. Go for investment pieces – you will come back to these time and time again and they will make up the core of your wardrobe.
Trends to invest in
This season it’s all about the dark romance trend – think feminine lace blouses, luxurious velvet jackets, dramatic maxi skirts and decadent cocktail earrings. We have some great pieces on site from Dolce & Gabbana.
