The formula for a Winning Outfit Every Time

How we dress symbolizes our unique individuality; what we wear is a part of who we are. Style is important because your personality isn’t the first thing people see. Irrespective of your opinion of clothing, it’s necessary. Stop fighting it and embrace it. Clothing adds value during our first impressions (people subconsciously evaluate you based on your visual presentation within 15 minutes of meeting you).

The truth is, we live in busy times. You may be adjusting to a new or going back to a work environment, a parent who is juggling career and family life, adjusting to currently or expecting a transitional phase in life such as a new mom (new body). You may be grappling to find the time and energy to create the wardrobe your really want. Denise Mansur, the founder of Ms. Meri Mak, has created a simple formula to elevate your visual presentation. This formula can boost your confidence, demand authority, develop a sense of security, and even inspire others.

This formula is an easy code to a winning outfit for every occasion. Whether you’re going to the office, meeting friends for brunch, heading to the farmers market, or having a fun night out, this formula will make things easier for you.

Let me share the formula first; then, I will provide a style by numbers code so you will have a no fail approach to create a self-designed wardrobe.

Winning Outfit = Staple + Staple + Statement + Accessories

It’s that simple! The basic idea is to select an outfit without hesitation, knowing why and how it’s best for you. Read below to achieve a uniquely stylish one-of-a-kind outfit. Let’s begin the staple;


These are the most important component of your wardrobe, encompassing turtlenecks, blazers, and shirts.

Women’s turtlenecks are an underrated closet staple, offering a sleek, streamlined look that can literally go with anything. Wearing them on their own, under a v- neck sleeveless dress, or even under a blazer offers a stunning appearance.

Don’t forget to check out the amazing turtlenecks for women.

I always count denim shirts as the crucial component of the staple family. These versatile shirts can be worn when you have no idea what to pair a statement piece with. For example, you may have a pair of sequins trousers in your closet. That you were not able to wear because you could not figure out what would go with it. Enter the denim shirt check out; some of the most eloquent denim shirts are available at a great price point.

Another wardrobe must-have is a black blazer. The simple combination of a black blazer with leggings or a pair of jeans is a simple but yet sophisticated pick for any occasion. The best thing is that you can really wear a blazer anywhere. So, why wait to look for a stunning blazer ready to be part of your wardrobe.


The statement piece is the second ingredient of your winning fit. Though you won’t have these pieces on a regular rotation, every statement piece will add the unique touch of individuality you desire; dawning a statement piece with your staples will create a one-of-a-kind ensemble. A great example is an artist-designed Kimono giving an effortlessly cool and chic vibe. Give our artisan collection of Kimonos a shot.


Accessories are the icing for your outfit. These are actually a mix of statement and staple, which adds a stunning look. For instance, adding a texture to the scarf can further beautify the presence.

There are plenty of other accessories available in our boutique that can charge up your clothing collection.

Just give them a shot to create a perfect winning fit for everyday living.
