Since the clock has struck midnight on March 20th, fashion lovers everywhere will have rejoiced. Out with winter, in with spring! If you’re lucky and happen to live in a warmer part of the world, you’ve been enjoying your bright, lightweight clothes for some time now, but those of us living in the colder climes are happy to be “springing ahead.’ Continue Reading
A qualm that many women have with their wardrobes is that they don’t know how to dress for that “in between” weather. Even the most seasoned of stylists, shoppers, and fashionistas run into this problem from time to time. So when it comes to that time of year, when the weather is about as unpredictable as your hair cooperating in the morning, I remember these two things: layering and textures.
Color and texture are two very easy things to take into consideration when dressing yourself each morning. “Which shoes complement this top?” “How many bangles is too many with this sequin skirt?” and “Which shade of red for my lipstick today?” are all things I find myself questioning often. However, some women get stuck when it comes to shape. Just because it’s a wrap dress, doesn’t mean that you’re done styling it. A tunic on the wrong body type can swallow a frame up. A skinny jean without a balancing act on top can create a top-heavy look. And if you forget a belt on even the most gorgeous outfit, it can easily fall flat. That’s why it’s so important to consider shape in every outfit you wear.
Business Casual dress codes can sometimes get the best of us. Even the most stylish and creative of women can become discouraged when they feel confined to neutral suits and kitten heels. While a few working environments still require employees to dress in a traditional manner, many workplaces are becoming a bit more lax. It’s a no-brainer that when you look your best, you feel your best. And when you feel your best, you can do your best work! So how can you put a twist on your business casual wardrobe? Think about incorporating your signature style and favorite colors to classic daytime silhouettes.
