If you’re looking for the perfect pretty Spring dress know there are so many options this year. From beautiful prints, to flattering silhouettes! This Spring is the perfect time to update your closet. What I am loving most is the fit and flare or a-line shapes we are seeing so much of. The a-line is so reminiscent of the 50’s and has remained timeless for a good reason, it has a universally slimming effect on every body type, as it hides curves, frames curves and will create curves for those who need a little extra help.
Have fun with these lady-like silhouettes by adding a statement shoe. Try a stiletto in a bright color or one with unexpected detail. An edgier shoe is a way to off set the extreme femininity of these gorgeous dresses!
When working with clients my job is to help them build a wardrobe that is complete and multi-functional. Finding pieces that are essential to creating the perfect closet! So here is a list to help you create the perfect wardrobe for this Spring…Spring Wardrobe Essentials;
A denim jacket: Looks great with a skirt, or over a dress.
A well fitted blazer to dress up a simple white t-shirt and distressed jeans!
A white t-shirt: Everyone should own a few, at least.
A chambray or denim button down shirt: Great for pairing with a skirt, a dress, or as a layering piece on those cooler Spring days.
A pencil skirt: Especially in a fabulous color! Pencil skirts are universally flattering on most body types and can be dressed up or dressed down!
Distressed Jeans: Distressed denim is so in this year! It will make you look current and relevent.
A great fitting dress: Not in black! I particularly love this off-white, curve hugging one! An easy dress to wear to a spring event or on a hot date!
A cardigan: Especially in a vibrant color or two! It can be layered over a basic tee, paired with a pencil skirt, or used to wear over a dress!
A basic trench coat: Will make you look stylish and pulled together on those rainy days!
The perfect fitting t-shirt bra: A wardrobe must! There is nothing worse than a bra that does not fit well or shows lumps and bumps. So my advice go for a professional fitting and find the best support you can!
No line panties: I personally love a lace thong.
A cross body bag: So on trend this season, especially in a fun color. To me a cross body is essential, allows me to shop hands-free!
Lastly, a nude shoe: An absolute must! A nude shoe goes with everything! It will also make your legs appear longer!
Don’t be afraid to experiment and be creative…your wardrobe is an expression of who you are. So have fun and enjoy the warmer weather, blooming flowers, and all the fabulous fashion that awaits you!
There Is nothing like a great fitting pair of denim. It transform the way your body looks more then any other piece of clothing in your wardrobe! I’ve seen jeans make someone 5 pounds slimmer and I have seen jeans … Continue reading
Heading off for a two-day business trip (I don”t work a traditional job so my clothes aren’t typical business attire). I travel a lot and have become the expert packer…I have it down to a science! When traveling leggings are a no-brainer, lightweight, wrinkle-free (I hate ironing). Of course I opt for ones with interest! Here I have chosen a pair of edgier ones and a pair of feminine floral ones! I like to pair the unexpected with the unexpected…like the KISS shirt with the feminine floral leggings and the pretty PEPLUM with the rocker bottoms! I rely on comfy shoes for running through the airport, especially when I have connecting flights! The Ash wedge sneakers are the ultimate in comfort! Versatile and interchangeable jackets and sweaters are a must, I always travel with a denim jacket! Lastly, flying dehydrates the skin and using hotel soaps even makes it worse. So my favorite make-up remover and cleanser is the Josie Maran Bear-Naked wipes! Love these and easy to pack!
Here’s to looking good and feeling good when traveling!
