Spent a day with a client drowning in a sea of blue. I had never seen so many shades of blue in one wardrobe! My client, a beautiful 50-year-old women, recently divorced,reentering the work force and recovering from the after-math of hurricane Sandy (her home was devastated by the storm). With over $200,000 in storm damage, my client could not afford a whole new wardrobe and was looking for help to re-work what she already owned. Her typical uniform, jeans, a blue top, and blue or tan shoes! My recomendations…add pops of color with accessories…shoes, scarves, belts, handbags and invest in one great jacket that would work with both work and casual attire.
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!
Everyday Fall Essentials, for the everyday woman…
Most of the women I work with as a personal stylist are everyday women. They are women who are looking to make the most out of their wardrobes from both a functional point of view and a financial point of view. As we’ve entered into the biggest season in fashion I have spent a lot of time in women’s closets and stores helping them create everyday Fall looks for when they want to be casual but still look good. Here are my top reccomendations…
A chunky cozy sweater, a great colored blouse or printed blouse, a couple of blazers (blazers are my ultimate reccomendation), a great fitting pair of denim (AG Stilts most unvirsally flattering), a cascading cardigan, an arsenal of solid long sleeve t-shirts, a pair of black leggings (Lysse leggings are my favorite), boots of any kind!, a great bag especially in a color, scarves to dress up those plain tee’s, a wristful of arm candy, and lastly make-up, this year it’s all about the dark lip and a neautral eye!
