2 Stylish Gals, 2 Totally Amazing Wardrobes: Veronica Beard

Clos-ette’s Melanie Charlton practically invented the idea of a custom closet, so it’s only natural that she’s always peeking in everyone else’s. Follow along every week as Clos-ette taps some of our favorite ladies (and gents!) to find out their favorite boutiques to cull, what’s at the top of their wish lists, and, of course, how they keep their own wardrobes intact.
What do you get when you combine two of New York’s most stylish gals — who happen to be same-named sisters-in-law — with a shared sporty-chic aesthetic? That would be Veronica Beard, the ready-to-wear label Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard launched in 2010.
These days, the duo are in the business of turning out American-made sportswear destined to become part of your daily uniform — think easy silk blouses, fur-trimmed blazers, and their now-iconic jacket with interchangeable dickies. In other words, the kind of pieces that at once elevate and seamlessly blend in with your current wardrobe. (We are unabashedly hooked.) Here, the designers open up their downtown New York homes to give us a peek inside their closets.
