Numerous letters have hit the FN Dish mailbag requesting fashion tips from Susie Fogelson — VP, Marketing & Brand Strategy.

In the spirit of Black Friday, Susie shares five fashion and shopping ideas that may even save you money…

1) Hunt for one special piece. A signature hat, scarf, or belt can transform basics from your closet into something unforgettable.

2) Go local! Like food, why not support local artisans and jewelers? In Susie’s Brooklyn neighborhood, she frequents boutiques like Bird and Kiwi to find one-of-a-kind pieces.

3) Don’t fear the hat. Susie would wear one daily if she could — and now her daughter is into them as well. A fave designer is Eugenia Kim, who mixes tweed and cashmere. What’s not to love?

4) Monochrome is not monotonous. On the contrary…a single color can be sophisticated. All black is great but solid lights work too. She was a bucket of crazy but remember how elegant Sharon Stone looked in her head-to-toe cream ensemble from Basic Instinct?

5) Get social. Even if you don’t have cash to spend this season, nothing is better than gathering good friends and window shopping boutiques in a new neighborhood. You may even find that signature accessory.
