Welcome to Shop The Closet, where ESSENCE Fashion Director Marielle Bobo walks you through her monthly style must-haves. For our September Global Fashion Issue, she shows us the coolest ways to remix your 9-to-5 wardrobe. From doubling up on watches and layering jewels to rocking a streamlined belt bag, we’ve got everything you need.
Check out all the fashion buys we scored during this month’s edition of Shop The Closet, including the killer turquoise thigh-high Louboutins that will help you channel your “inner Mary J. Blige.” Check out the video below, where Marielle dishes on her essentials and let us know which items you plan on snagging. Happy shopping!
