Taking the 6-Item Challenge: Editor's Picks

The six-item challenge may be for the brave of heart (go Sally!), but we’d like to think we picked the best items. Check out our lists, then let us know what six items you’d choose!

1. Six Items: Amanda

Amanda Flores, Beauty Editor

1. A gray crochet mid-length sweater: “It’s perfect with my skinny jeans or over a pleated skirt.”

2. A cobalt pleated midi skirt: “The color of the season—it can be dressed up with wedges or worn casually with gladiator sandals.”

3. Dark blue skinny jeans: “Self-explanatory. They go with everything for any occasion.”

4. A chambray button-down: “I love wearing mine open and tied at the waist 80s style. It works perfectly over a maxi dress or my skinny jeans.”

5. An olive green cotton maxi dress: “It’s my neutral staple. It’s slim-fitting so it’s elegant enough for a night out.”

6. Black cigarette pants: “A must-have closet essential: They easily transition from season to season.”

2. Six Items: Grace

Grace Bastidas, Deputy Editor

1. A long-sleeve denim shirt: “I can put it over a top as a pseudo-jacket or wear it on its own.”

2. Black skinny jeans: “My black skinnies go with motorcycle boots or peep-toe pumps.” 

3. A charcoal silk dress: “I love this dress. It looks chic in the office and cool for after work drinks.”

4. A red linen top: “Red is a vibrant hue for when the weather is blah.” 

5. Navy blue chinos: “This is my go-to for when I want to feel comfortable and just dressy enough. I like to wear these chinos with my brown oxfords for a preppier look.”

6. Sleeveless black silk top: “Black is classic and pairs great with just about everything.”

3. Six Items: Verky

Verky Arcos Baldonado, Fashion Editor

1. White button-down: “You can wear it closed, open with a tank under, and you can belt it either way.”

2. Black cotton tank body-fitting midi dress: “You can wear as a dress on it’s own, put a top over it and wear it as a skirt, or put a skirt and wear it as a tank top.”

3. Denim jeans: “They go with any top!”

4. Printed v-neck sweater: “You can wear alone or on top of the white button down, for a more preppy look.”

5. Maxi skirt: “Wear it as a skirt or as a belted tube top dress.”

6. A floral printed chiffon day dress: “You can dress this up or down for weekend or work.”


4. Six Items: Sam

Samantha Leal, Online Editor

1. Denim chambray shirt: “You can wear it open with another shirt underneath or buttoned-up.”

2. Black maxi dress: “This doubles as a dress and a ‘skirt’ when worn with a shirt or a jacket. Add some cool jewelry and it can work for a night out as well!”

3. Black skinny jeans: “You can wear them out or casually – you can even wear them at work!”

4. Short-sleeve blouse: “One in fuschia or green would add some much needed color to the mix.”

5. A navy silk button-down: “It can go from work to weekend!”

6. A printed, mid-length dress: “Appropriate for the weekend and going out, as it is in the office with a jacket.”
