Robert Chavez, recent Local Legends “Best Fashionista” title winner: The number one items I always have in my closet would be a black blazer and a white long sleeve shirt. I best describe these two items as the lifesaver for every man. You can never go wrong with the black blazer and white shirt for a casual dinner or formal dinner, a formal wedding or reception, a business meeting, a casual interview and unfortunately, a funeral.
Karen Thomas, Member of local steampunk group In-COG-nito: As far as steampunk, hats are a necessity. I have one for every outfit. I make them with feathers and flowers, but really, the sky is the limit. It’s such a creative genre.
Frank Villasana, owner of Nequim Pin-Up & Boudoir Photography: If the fedora was good enough for my heroes Indiana, Bogart, Rorschach and the Blue’s Brothers, it’s good enough for me. It’s not an accessory; it’s part of me.
Courtney Wright, employee at resale and consignment store Uptown Cheapskate: A good pair of shoes, like a unique pair that are your go-to for a simple or flashy outfit. I’d also say your favorite pair of jeans to complete and add to your look.
