Style with Ease

“Easy, breezy, beautiful”
may be Maybelline’s tagline,
but it’s also the mantra of Summer dressing.

You may think it’s hard to look put together and stylish
while keeping cool,
but with these tips and tricks
you’ll be looking like a fabulous beach babe!

The key to effortless style is color – the perfect shade can make a simple outfit seems a lot more interesting. We love this coral Nation dress paired with clean-line, neutral accessories.

If you fear bold color, a subtle shimmer plays off the gleaming sun. Matte gold or silver are perfect for day-to-night since they aren’t too intense, plus it illuminates your skin – tanned or au natural!

On those warm Summer nights spent out on the town, you want to look sleek and sexy – not sweaty. Choose a rich colored dress and incorporate variations of the hue in your accessories. A little sparkle keeps you shining even after the sun goes down.

When styling is minimal, a strong color goes a long way. Red looks great on tan or fair skin, just find your perfect shade! To make red more day, try pairing it with turquoise and metallic for an eclectic feel. This look is great for a lunch with friends or business associates!

Spring has sprung!
So say goodbye to your boots;
it’s time for the most fabulous season for footwear!

If you’re into fashion rules, you know that white shoes are officially OK after Memorial Day. But it’s okay to blur the lines a little, so break out your pretty white wedges to pair with your pastels!

 

 

 

 

Enzo Angliolini flats, $26

If you’re not partial to white shoes, try something with shimmer. A sparkly flat will brighten up even your darkest winter garments.

 

 

 

FS/NY flats, size 10, $68 NEW

FS/NY flats, size 10, $68 NEW

 

 

 

And final you can wear flats again! No more freezing toes or trying to stylishly layer socks and tights. If all-out glitter is too much for your taste, add a bit of edge with gunmetal studs on a simple black flat.

 

 

Marc Jacobs heels, size 7, $68

Spring is the time for color;
vibrant, saturated, brilliant color.
Even if your dress is simple,
you can add a splash with color-block kicks.

A more subtle approach to color is with neutral hues. Teal and turquoise pair beautifully with natural materials like cork and earthy textures like snakeskin. Wear these heels with a safari dress or slim-cut khakis.

Guys get to have fun with shoes, too!
Forget about black and brown basics
and try something bold!
We love these aqua sneakers with a printed short, or these black and red Creative Recs with black jeans for an evening downtown.

Spring Blazers

Posted by on Mar 30, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

When the trees turn green
and flowers start to bloom
it’s time to ditch your winter wools
and suits of navy and black.

It’s time for color!
Time for cotton and linen blazers
paired with lightweight button-up shirts!

(Ermenegildo Zenga shirt size L $90, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 42R $96 NEW)

(Ermenegildo Zenga shirt size L $90, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 42R $96 NEW)

 

 

 

We love Easter pastels as we head into Spring! The best way to wear color and print is to find a pattern with a lighter shade of your bold color; like this blue and pale peach plaid.

(BKE67 shirt $14, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 40R $146)

(BKE67 shirt $14, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 40R $146)

If you prefer more subtle shades, try a sky blue blazer accented with light neutrals; like cream and tan. This pairing works well with your favorite pair of jeans.

(Burberry shirt size L $70, Nick Price blazer size 42R $196 NEW)

(Burberry shirt size L $70, Nick Price blazer size 42R $196 NEW)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feeling bold? Wear pink! Hot pink gets a touch of the unexpected when worn with berry tones (raspberry, plum, raisin). This combo is best suited for an evening out worn with dark-wash jeans and snazzy shoes!

(Gant shirt size XL $56 NEW, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 40R $146 NEW)

(Gant shirt size XL $56 NEW, Mckenzie Tribe blazer size 40R $146 NEW)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maybe bright colors just don’t work with your complexion. But you can still have fun with color and print! We love this blue and pale yellow striped shirt and how it works so nicely with this Mckenzie Tribe blazer! With some linen slacks you’ll be looking like a modern age Jay Gatsby.

You Hue!

The calendar says it’s Spring,
but the weather report says otherwise.

So while your mind may be longing for lightweight layers and flirty skirts,
you’re still stuck dressing like it’s winter.
Not!
You can incorporate your favorite things about Spring ensembles
into a look that’s suited for the current climate conditions.

(Gianni Bini heels $34, Jills Jewels earrings $20, Rebecca Taylor top size 8 $68, J.Crew pants $18)

(Gianni Bini heels $34, Jills Jewels earrings $20, Rebecca Taylor top size 8 $68, J.Crew pants $18)

 

 

Mix a  vibrant hue with your deep winter colors. We love how this periwinkle pops on navy and plum!

 

 

 

 

 

(Apepazza heels size 37.5 $48, Trende Femme earrings $14, J.Crew cardigan $20, Ann Taylor pants $42)

(Apepazza heels size 37.5 $48, Trende Femme earrings $14, J.Crew cardigan $20, Ann Taylor pants $42)

Instead of pairing your cardigan with brown wool slacks, pick a rich color in a raw silk. The texture of the silk works well in this transitional period but lightens up the look as we prepare for Spring!

(Jessica Simpson heels $24, Artwear earrings $16, Ann Taylor Loft top $14, Lilly Pulitzer jeans $42)

(Jessica Simpson heels $24, Artwear earrings $16, Ann Taylor Loft top $14, Lilly Pulitzer jeans $42)

 

 

 

Tired of wearing jeans every day? Mix it up with some color! We love a bold denim paired with an abstract print.

 

 

 

 

(Boutique 9 heels $36, earrings $14, Broadway & Broome top $38, J.Crew pants $20)

(Boutique 9 heels $36, earrings $14, Broadway & Broome top $38, J.Crew pants $20)

If all the vibrant tints are too much for you, try something more subtle. Dusty pastels are perfect for the transition from Winter to Spring and look great as suede or cotton twill.

Spring Fever

It’s Spring, it’s Spring!
Warm weather is on the horizon
and we can’t wait to break out our floral prints!

(We Who See wedges $36, earrings $8, Charlotte Tarantola cardigan $39, Banana Republic cami $8, Lilly Pulitzer pants size 4 $48)

(We Who See wedges $36, earrings $8, Charlotte Tarantola cardigan $39, Banana Republic cami $8, Lilly Pulitzer pants size 4 $48)

 

 

 

 

For days when it’s still cool outside, we’ll pair our colored cords with a floral cardi. Cute and transitional!

 

 

 

(Cole Haan flats $42, Trende Femme earrings $14, GAP sweater $12, Maple skirt $28)

(Cole Haan flats $42, Trende Femme earrings $14, GAP sweater $12, Maple skirt $28)

 

 

 

We also love a stripe & floral combo. Pick an accent color from the print and make it the dominant hue in the stripe. What a feminine and sporty ensemble!

 

 

 

(VAN ELi heels $36, earrings $28, Charlotte Torantola cardigan $28, Milly dress size 2 $98)

(VAN ELi heels $36, earrings $28, Charlotte Torantola cardigan $28, Milly dress size 2 $98)

 

 

 

 

Can’t wait to wear your favorite sundress? Throw on a bright cardigan to warm it up and maintain the retro style.

 

 

 

(Simply Vera wedges $22, Jills Jewels earrings $18, necklace $48, Beyond Vintage top size small $98 NEW, Club Monaco short $34 NEW)

(Simply Vera wedges $22, Jills Jewels earrings $18, necklace $48, Beyond Vintage top size small $98 NEW, Club Monaco short $34 NEW)

 

 

Not in to girly prints and bold colors? Transition into Spring with neutrals and abstract prints! We love camel and black to lighten your Winter wardrobe.

Day Shimmer

Posted by on Mar 20, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

All that glitters isn’t gold:
sometimes it’s your personality
and sometimes it’s your outfit!

Shimmer and shine isn’t just for the night.
Here’s how we style metallic for daytime.

(LAMB sandals size 8.5 $52, earrings $24, Parker shirt size medium $48, Gryphon skirt size SX $110)

(LAMB sandals size 8.5 $52, earrings $24, Parker shirt size medium $48, Gryphon skirt size SX $110)

 

 

 

 

A little goes a long way, so try a beaded hem! Take a piece to day with a casual top and sandals.

 

 

 

(Jimmy Choo sandals size 36 $98, Milly jacket size 6 $120, Lllavender dress $28)

(Jimmy Choo sandals size 36 $98, Milly jacket size 6 $120, Lllavender dress $28)

If you have a statement piece, pair it with something down-to-earth. We love how the raw edged of this handmade Lllavender dress contrast with the heavy metallic.

(Jasmin heels $14, earrings $30, Ann Taylor Loft jacket $32, Grace Sun dress $128 NEW)

(Jasmin heels $14, earrings $30, Ann Taylor Loft jacket $32, Grace Sun dress $128 NEW)

 

 

 

Shine can be appropriate for the office, too. Avoid looking like you’re ready for the bar by trading in black for navy: the look becomes less flashy and more classy.

 

 

 

(Dune heels $22, Alexis Bittar earrings $68, Tracy Reese top size 2 $88, vintage skirt $18)

(Dune heels $22, Alexis Bittar earrings $68, Tracy Reese top size 2 $88, vintage skirt $18)

 

 

 

If dark hues plus sparkle make you feel too evening, swap black for rich shades of brown. You’ll be a bronze goddess in an Art Deco beaded blouse!

Shamrock Style

St. Patricks Day is this Sunday!
It’s the one day of the year
where you can pretend your Irish
and it’s acceptable to spend the whole day at a bar.

(VAN Eli heels $36, Milly necklace $58, gold necklaces $6 and $10, Diane von Furstenberg dress size medium $98)

(VAN Eli heels $36, Milly necklace $58, gold necklaces $6 and $10, Diane von Furstenberg dress size medium $98)

 

 

 

Of course it is customary to wear green, but how will you show your Irish pride? We’re a fan of this simple DVF jersey knit dress; chic and comfortable for exploring the downtown festivities.

 

 

 

(Michael Kors heels $38, Milly bracelet $58, Moschino blazer size 6 $120, Tibi top size 4 $78, J. Brand jeans $50)

(Michael Kors heels $38, Milly bracelet $58, Moschino blazer size 6 $120, Tibi top size 4 $78, J. Brand jeans $50)

 

 

 

If you’re in to classy activities to celebrate St Patrick, throw on a lightweight white blazer over a flowy green top. This combo is great with a pair of skinny jeans and is suitable for a luncheon or a business party.

 

 

 

(Marc by Marc Jacobs heels size 37.5 $68, Saola Designs earrings with peridot $58, Cole Haan belt $24, Theory top $30, J. Crew skirt $22)

(Marc by Marc Jacobs heels size 37.5 $68, Saola Designs earrings with peridot $58, Cole Haan belt $24, Theory top $30, J. Crew skirt $22)

 

 

 

Celebrating early on Saturday night? Pair your green with black for a sleek evening ensemble. A little metallic accent makes the look modern while still being traditional.

 

 

 

(Marc by Marc Jacobs heels size 37.5 $68, Good Girls Studio earrings $36, Dolce & Gabbana jacket size medium $748, Lauren by Ralph Lauren dress size 6 $58)

(Marc by Marc Jacobs heels size 37.5 $68, Good Girls Studio earrings $36, Dolce & Gabbana jacket size medium $748, Lauren by Ralph Lauren dress size 6 $58)

 

 

 

Green not your color? Mix it up with an iconic Irish plaid! This look is so McQueen; we love how this D&G leather jacket toughens up a pretty dress.
