Betty Halbreich, NYC’s most famous personal shopper and the inspiration for a pilot Lena Dunham is developing for HBO, is featured in the September issue of Glamour!  Here’s some of her style advice to hold you over until her book I’ll Drink to That: A Life in Style, with a Twist is released in September!


Q: What is one staple I should invest in this fall? —Kendall A: Beautiful tops, because “people perceive you top-down,” explains Halbreich. “I love the luxurious shirts old-Hollywood actresses wore, like a silky button-down with a small bow or long pussy bow.”
Q: What tailoring tricks make clothes more flattering? —Kat A: “I suggest removing hip pockets on pants, which is slimming, and taking in shoulders to conform to your shape.”
Q: Help! I need a versatile coat. —Danielle A: “It’s a black or navy peacoat, with two or three buttons, no contest. You can dress it up or down.”
Q: I’m looking for a professional bag. Any ideas? —Jen  A: Get a monotone handbag (inspiration: Saint Laurent Sac de Jour) “that’ll fit essentials—do a bag fitting at the store, like you would a dress fitting.”
Q: I need classic pumps with a practical heel. —Lindsey A: “Manolo Blahnik BBs in neutrals—black, beige—are my safe harbor.”
Q: The best piece of advice you give clients? —Emily A: “Use a three-way mirror. It’s important to see all angles.”
