I am so fortunate to be part of Stacy London’s (from What Not To Wear) network of fashion stylists. I just got off a call with her where we discussed all the trends for this month! I am so excited as I love them all and will feature a trend daily for the next 8 days!So keep tuning in!
Today SWEATSHIRTS! Ahhh! Cozy, comfy sweatshirts, but on a sophisticated level! No Winnie-the-Pooh or Mickey Mouse here! We are talking sophisticated and stylish! Enough so you can wear one to the office, a night on the town, or just for running around on the weekends!
Embrace the super figure flattering power of the peplum! There’s a reason the peplum has been a reoccurring style throughout the decades and it’s not going away any time soon! It has graced the runways for Fall 2013!
A great peplum accent instantly slims the waist line and complements curves. Seen on jackets (my favorite), tops, dresses, skirts, and even on pants! There are two kinds of peplums, fitted or flared. A fuller, flared peplum will add shape and create curves! Works great on a boyish or straight figures. A fitted peplum, will work its magic by concealing a tummy and is best suited for an hourglass shape.
Hope you find the power in the peplum!
An easy way to step up your style is to find that perfect, updated handbag! There is so much to choose from this Spring! Here are some of the trends….bags in subtle hues, like mint, peach, pink, cream, studded details, black and white, laser cut detail, boxy cross bodys, cross bodys of any kind (my personal favorite highly functional and allows me to power shop hands free!), anything in blue, yellow, or green, satchels, and of course anything in a color that screams Spring! Hope you are out there finding that perfect bag!
To me shoes can be like a work of art. The design and the craftmanship of a beautiful shoe is like looking at an amazing sculpture. I can wander aimlessly in the shoe departments of Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdales, and Saks taking in the endless array of “art’ in the form of a shoe. Ok, so maybe not everyone would feel the same, but to me a shoe can bring as much joy as a fine painting might, to another.
