The 3 Formal Pieces Every Woman Needs in Her Closet

While most of our days are spent in either workwear (suits, button-downs, and the like) or casualwear (jeans and tees), fancier pieces are just as crucial to any woman's closet. Imagine receiving a last-minute black-tie invite without the proper dress or polished separates…

Well, to ensure you have the proper offering in your assortment, we caught up with formal designer extraordinaire Josep Font of Delpozo (who just launched an exclusive capsule line with Net-a-Porter) to get the specifics on exactly what you need in your arsenal.

"The most formal attire is, of course, a gown silhouette. At Delpozo, I try to create a fresh and delicate version of this shape. I especially like working with silk tulle, as it has an exquisite texture with such a gentle touch to the body; it's one of my go-to fabrics, as it is so soft and comfortable to wear yet so elegant and refined," Josep said.

"Palazzo pants would be a modern twist for a black-tie-etiquette event. Now for summer, organza is a great choice: The fabric is so light, and the sheerness is very feminine as well," Josep said.

"Lately, I've found crop tops a great choice. Pairing it cleverly with palazzo pants can make a woman stand out from the rest," Josep said.
