It's safe to say that Project Runway co-host Tim Gunn knows a thing or two about style.
Life & Style caught up with the Emmy winner at the Nespresso pop-up boutique at Grand Central Terminal in NYC and he told us the five items every gal should have inside her closet.
Check out his picks below:
1) Basic Black DressWho doesn't need that? Everyone needs one if for no other reason than a funeral or holiday party.2) Trench CoatYou wan wear it to the opera and you can wear it to the grocery store.3) BlazerIt's the easiest way in the world to dress up jeans and a T-shirt. 4) Dark Wash Pair of JeansOne you can wear during the day and also wear for cocktails.5) Cashmere SweaterIt's the only time I actually mention that style because cashmere is affordable today.
His No. 1 tip for looking chic? "Every item has to be in harmony and balance or you won't look good no matter what you're wearing," he tells Life & Style.
