Wardrobe MVP: And the award goes to....



Goldcup Take a good look around your closet. What can take you from work to weekend? On the road? Rain or shine?

What's your wardrobe MVP?

I found myself mulling this recently when packing for a trip to NYC. I didn't have much room in my carry-on suitcase. What were the essentials that I needed to look good during two days in the city, then two more hiking out in the country?

I came up with three finalists:

1. Black jersey dress: This beauty goes everywhere. Pair with wedges for a dinner date. Top with a jacket for work. Slip on comfortable walking flats to pound the pavement in the Big Apple. You get the picture.

But ... it's still a dress. And as such, it's a touch dressy to bum around on a Saturday afternoon.

2. Khaki cargo skirt: The ultimate in casual chic. It's basically shorts, but classier. A T-shirt with anything else just looks lazy. Wear with a cargo skirt and your just as comfy -- only now you also have hot legs.

But ... a skirt is a problem when you want to use those legs, say to go biking.

3. Jeans: Can't live without them. Bar appropriate. Park appropriate. They'll even keep you warm.

And the WINNER is....

A cop-out! I couldn't decide and packed all three. Help me be more decisive! What gets your vote for Wardrobe MVP?
