{Glam} Perfect Contrast

April 6, 2014 in Glam: Style & Trends

1

This power couple of colors can’t be beat. For a woman who has never owned a pair of white pants, I would never say never to a pair of black with a splash of white. We know florals will be back for spring, but let’s take it up a notch with contrasting hues. With a drop waist and a polar pattern, this romper makes dressing a breeze and is just as, if not more comfortable, than your favorite spring dress.

{Glam} Back to Black

March 2, 2014 in Glam: Style & Trends

800 Pixel Length-3

Let’s challenge our favorite go-to color in our closets. We’re looking at you, LBD! The little black dress is a fan favorite, but can we pair it with other black accessories without looking gothic? Of course!

Choose monochromatic hues that compliment your personal style. While I love dressing in black from head-to-toe, my personality is definitely not one of a moody artist. Instead of instinctively going for a bright pop of color, play with a pattern, and look for fine details to feature with winter whites and shades of grey. My personal style touch for this Spring/ Summer 2014 favorite? A light grey winter beanie, laced up off-green heels, and a bit of gold glitter on my nails (for a dose of extra glam!)

NYFW and Pantone, the authority on colors and style, released and premiered a spectrum of color for Spring 2014. My two favorites? Brilliant blues and sunny yellows. The contrast can be used in your decor or your closet!

{Glam} How To: Wear Red Right

February 8, 2014 in Glam: Style & Trends

Why You Love It: A pop of color in the middle of winter? Count us in to warm things up. Plus, the romantic shades to choose from are endless: poppy, burgundy, brick, rose, and more. An outfit has the power to go from va-va-voom to preppy to soft and sultry with just a dose of red.

Why You Stay Away: With Valentine’s Day approaching this Friday (yes, FRIDAY…to the poor boy reading this and slowly figuring this out, you’re welcome), I’ve got a lot questions about what to wear. You want to wear red, but fear looking like a walking cheesy Hallmark card.

The Solution: Dress for the occasion and keep it simple. Last year, I styled 3 lovely women for their 3 different V-day plans: True Blue Valentine, First Date, and Girls Night Out! Each look incorporates a dose of red that is just right for your romantic night.

This year, I designed the perfect how to style board with my favorites for your night below. Check it out!

2 Ways To Wear Red Right

1. Accessorize – Tone down your V-Day look with a pair of boyfriend jeans and match them with a bright red stiletto heel. On top, grab your black and white striped boat neck shirt instead of your favorite red tee. Keep the red as an accent, for instance, a clutch or bag. Feel free to dab lips with a bit of red lipstick and keep nails to a deep burgundy or pale rose.

2. Stand Out – Rocking a red dress? You go girl! To not distract from the beauty of the dress, go for a beige heel and light or rose gold accessories. Light red or a touch of gloss works for lips. Keep it simple.

What are your plans this Valentine’s Day? Share below!

{Glam} Black & Blue

December 29, 2013 in Glam: Style & Trends

{Glam} Black & Blue

I’m having a menswear moment. Tired of denim on denim? Pair your favorite chambray shirt with something other than jeans! For me, I love to tuck in any shirt to create a preppy, Ralph Lauren – esq look. I think it adds a bit of surprise and structure to such a street-oriented outfit. When trying this look don’t just stop at black. Try khaki, leather (rock n’ roll), grey, leggings (if your shirt is long enough), or experiment with a floral print. This style is very Rosie the Riveter, sans bandana and actual physical arm muscle. (Give me a few more weeks at the gym and we’ll see about that one.)

PS. Check out that mane! Finally made the switch. Hello ombre!

{Glam} Baby, It’s Cold Outside

December 2, 2013 in Glam: Style & Trends

What’s my secret weapon to beat the winter chill? Layers. Layers are the Fashionsta’s (and Fashionisto’s) essential key to unlock not only a wardrobe brimming with cool-weather options, but to keep toasty, tastefully.
Baby It's Cold Outside - 5 Winter Layering Essentials

Baby It's Cold Outside - 5 Winter Layering Essentials

1. Cap it. Add a knitted slouchy or fitted winter hat to any outfit for a cute way to keep warm. Plus, it’s a perfect way to hide a not so good hair day when you are on the run. Looking for a cute topper? Try this or this!

2. Sock it to me. My toes are ALWAYS cold. Always. Thus, I am always switching out my socks or looking at better lined, warm socks. Facing the same problem? Not to worry…believe it or not, socks are back this season. (Yes, there are fashion trends for socks.) So, go wild! You can find a few of my favorites here and well, remember these?

3. InVested. One of the only items that can be used seamlessly from the fall, to the winter, to the spring, the vest provides warmth, and plenty of stylish ways to differentiate your look. Pictured above and below, I am rocking a new favorite faux fur vest of my own. Want to try the look? Start here and then, here.

4. Get the skinny. Perfect with oversized sweaters and tall boots, the skinny jean makes a major comeback for winter. Stock up.

5. Don’t sweat it. Think of your favorite sweatshirt. Good. Now throw that image away and start fresh. Introducing the NEW sweatshirt. Still warm and comfortable, but…not as casual. From graphics to leather, “stylish” sweatshirts have made a quick comeback in the fashion arena. I rock my own favorite below.
