About once a year, I manage to muster up enough courage to purge my closet. The most recent catalyst was the desire to simplify, simplify, simplify. An entire weekend and four trash bags later, I was left with my favorite wardrobe staples – timeless pieces that I could mix and match in a multitude of ways. This is how I’m loving to dress these days and exactly why I love Khaite. In addition to the beloved denim and knit sweaters upon which her label was built, designer Catherine Holstein’s pre-fall collection is all about classic, investment pieces that still feel individual and offbeat. High waisted wide leg pants, cropped wool jackets, tomboyish tweed suits, waist defining blazer dresses (my favorite!), and crisp poplin button downs are making that closet purge feel 110% worth it.
