If you've ever looked at Gigi and Bella Hadid and been flawed by the sisters' impeccable style, let us introduce you to Mimi Cuttrell. Cuttrell is a New York–based stylist who has been working with the supermodel siblings for years and is also the woman who can be credited for many of their noteworthy looks.
Aside from the Hadid sisters, Cuttrell has also worked with the likes of Lily-Rose Depp, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Camila Coelho and more, which is quite the résumé, particularly given she is only 28. With a client list that reads like a who's who of Hollywood It girls, Cuttrell is undeniably one of the world's most sought-after stylists right now.
As red carpets and events are largely on hold for the time being, we thought now would be as good a time as any to turn to the expert for a little advice, so we asked her about the wardrobe essentials she believes everyone needs. From reliable denim to a perfect white shirt, Cuttrell's top five are filled with the timeless staples you'll wear for years to come.
Keep scrolling for a stylist's advice on the wardrobe essentials everyone should own.
1. A Reliable Pair of Jeans
"I think every woman should own a good pair of denim that they feel comfortable in. I suggest opting for a straight leg or more relaxed cut, as I find they look great with both flats or heels."
2. A Statement Blazer
"I love a good statement blazer. It's an easy way to level up your everyday look. It can also double as a lightweight jacket for spring and fall."
3. A Perfectly Cut T-Shirt
"Great-fitting white and black T-shirts are an absolute must in my opinion. They are great for layering and can make an easy outfit paired with some more intricate pieces. I also recommend getting a steamer for your home. Many companies now offer small but mighty at-home devices that are easy to use and travel-friendly. No one likes a wrinkled shirt!"
4. Tailored Trousers
"A well-tailored pair of trousers. I can't stress enough the difference you'll notice once you get a garment tailored to your body. It's a game changer and can really elevate your look from frumpy to chic quickly."
5. A Classic White Shirt
"And finally, everyone should own a classic oversize white button-down shirt. I love to pair it with either denim or try layering it open on top of a more tight-fitting tank top for a more relaxed look. You can also belt them for an easy summer dress or a quick bathing suit cover-up."
