Even if you don’t have access to a designer clothing line, such as the Miss America Organization’s official clothing sponsor Joseph Ribkoff, you could still create a flattering wardrobe. First, stock up on basic items that will never go out of style. From there, add jewelry, shoes, and other statement pieces to update your look as needed. Three must-have items are a little black dress, a great pair of black pants, and a flattering camisole that could be worn under a jacket.
Every contestant and titleholder (and every volunteer, too!) could look her very best, no matter what. While personal style and personal shape may vary, by creating a basic, quality wardrobe, you’re on your way to sartorial success.
