Why buy basics? Because a classic navy pant like the one Brigitte wore in her Office Ambush Makeover , can be dressed up or dressed down. For 3 more fabulous looks, I paired this perfect fitting pant with a matching jacket and 2 sexy shirts to take her look from office to evening. Read on to find out how to make the most of a style staple.

Matching Magic

I always say that if a pant or skirt has a matching jacket, buy it (if it's affordable). This is a great way to get the most of your wardrobe. For example, wearing this navy BCBG pant with the matching jacket is ideal for an interview or important meeting. But a great top underneath can make this conservative style look casual or trendy in a snap.

Color Codes

Many women like Brigitte, are afraid of lighter colors and opt for dark colors that they think will be slimming. The truth is, it's not about the color but the style and fit that will make your figure looks its best. This BCBG top is great because the wide waistband and pleats, will enhance Brigitte's curves in all the right places. And wearing soft pastels as opposed to bright, bold colors is a good way to ease away from black and grey.

Day to Night

Another reason why I love a good suit is how easy it allows you to transition from day to night. This Ann Taylor blue and white halter top is adorable for a night out, but a tad too revealing for a day at the office. All Brigitte has to do is throw on her jacket or a cardigan for work and she's good to go.
