Style Guide: How To Pull Off Printed Pants

Want to know how to get a leg up on looking super fashionable and trendy?  Try a printed pant please! This trend, although not new, has continued throughout this fall/ winter and will keep going through Spring 2013, so you better get your print on!

I know what you are thinking, NO WAY! I have no idea how to make these pants look good, they will not be flattering on me, I will look like a clown, blah, blah, blah … But you are wrong! If you wear them properly and you heed my advice below, you will hit a whole new level of fashion-forward. Read more…

One Dress, Worn Three Ways

You know how it is — you get all excited about a dress, but then it sits in your closet and basically rots while you figure out how to wear it. This happens to me all the time. But never fear, we’ve got a plan to help you make the most out of what you’ve got. I like to buy rather basic dresses, so they can be worn fancy or casual, depending on your mood and desires. And for this experiment, I’ve picked a pretty plain A-line blue dress (blue is the new black, after all). Keep reading »

3 Ways To Wear These Biker Boots

I was having a conversation with one of my girlfriends the other day and she mentioned how she loves motorcycle boots, but has no idea how to incorporate them into her current wardrobe.  I’ve heard this a lot in the past couple months, so I figured I’d share with you the easy ways you can incorporate this awesome flat boot into a variety of your looks.

Motorcycle boots have a tendency to come off a bit tough (think Rooney Mara in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), but they’re really much more versatile and easy to wear.

Want proof? Check out these three totally different ways to rock this “hardcore” style using Steve Madden’s Tarnney Boots. Read more…

 

How To Save Your Sweaters

It’s time to be honest with ourselves and with our closets — Fall is here. Time to put away those barely-there slipdresses and airy tanks, and make room for an arsenal of cozy wear-everyday sweaters. And, if you’re like us, you’ve probably had most of these layering lifesavers stored away somewhere dark and out of sight. Translation? You’re now having to deal with mothballs and pillings. In effect, we’re making the seasonal switchover way easier for everyone involved, and here’s how: know your fibers, invest in the power of Woolite, and stay far, far away from the dryer. For more tips and tricks on sweater-care etiquette (ones that will save you from the daily evils of wear and tear), just keep reading…

Ami was satisfied with the spring looks I helped her put together, so she asked me back into her closet for fall. Sadly, she’ll have to put her hot denim, bell bottom romper away for the time being and bust out her booties because halter top weather is officially over.

The focus of our session for fall was how to work the few new pieces she purchased into her existing wardrobe in a way that was edgy and unique, but still wearable. Last season she livened things up, now she wants to push the fashion envelope a bit farther … but without venturing into Lady Gaga territory. I advised her to pick out a few statement pieces and buy at least one piece that she loved, but didn’t think she could wear. Keeping all this in mind, click through to check out the outfits I came up with.

Are Fake Glasses A Good Thing?

Fake glasses or spectacles are the easiest fashion fix there is. Yesterday, after three meetings before 11 a.m. my fake specs came to the rescue when I dashed over to NYFW in the afternoon. Out of the door at 7:30 a.m. meant my hair was limp and clothes creased, but I felt brainy, busy and bright in my glasses. Looking round at the shows too, my guess is I am not the only one faking it.

Earlier this year, my optician made up some Hackett black-rimmed glasses for me — with clear lenses. They are similar to, but larger than my prescription readers and I love them. All through my last year at high school I wore a pair of glasses I had lied to my optician to get. They gave me a terrible headache, but looked great. Now, when I feel like being anonymous but it’s too dark for sunglasses, on go my fakes. Read more …
