Instant Day To Night Looks

When you are a busy working woman you have many commitments during your day. Sometimes you need to jump straight from your office to an event and there is no  time to go home and change. This is when you need to be really smart with your outfit  and make sure you can change in a snap and still look appropriate for both occasions. One of my favorite ways to create an instant day to night look is to use a jumpsuit. Of course the jumpsuit is the thing of the moment, but is  also a classic piece  with the  great versatility.

For this project I am working again with my super busy  friend Luchia, who is in this situation quite often. To create a polished and professional look  I chose  a black jumpsuit and pair it with a white blazer for contrast, a neutral bag and a pop of color in the shoes.  Just by removing the blazer and adding bolder jewelry and an evening clutch the second outfit  was born.  Beautiful evening makeup put the finishing touches on it.

How To Wear One Top Three Ways

This was a particularly fun project because I had to collaborate with a dear friend and a fellow blogger from,  Luchia Dragosh. She is a very busy single mom with a demanding TV career, a personal blog and a YouTube channel. Her day is filled with different duties and activities and she has to be ready for all of it and do it on a single budget. This is when I came in to show her and all other women how to take the maximum out of their clothes and be able to create multiple outfits for multiple occasions. We often buy a piece to “go” with something and only limit ourselves with this only option. On the contrary I always try to look beyond the obvious and use a piece to make more outfits and fit them to the occasion.

What we have here is a floral top that can be easily styled for three different occasions and match her particular schedule. Sophisticated look with slim pants and  blazer for work, with  sexy heels and skirt for going out and in the end with jeans and espadrilles for a fun play day with her son.

What To Wear To An Outdoor Wedding

The invitation season has arrived and with the more RSVPs you send back, the more outfits you are going to need. In the next few weeks I will show you a few ideas on  how to create an outfit for various wedding scenarios.

The wedding guest dress code I follow is very simple and effective. My number one rule is to go classic with a trendy element; in this case I picked a classic fit&flare dress, the modern print and the mini length are the trendy elements. Think of a wedding as an extra special event and take this as an opportunity to dress up.  I always say that  the photos will live forever, so make sure you are not going to regret your choices. Don’t wear anything super sexy and revealing, keep it classy and elegant.  And last but not least is the consideration of the venue. The venue will be your starting point of what direction you need to go. You want to be remembered  for a stunning outfit and  not because you were wearing a full length gown to a beach celebration.

For an #outdoorwedding I  prefer  vibrant colors in light  prints or solids. Avoid sparkly and glittery dresses, keep them for evening affairs.   I like to go with  shorter lengths, because I have  options and can choose between  sandals or stilettos. The accessories have to be modern and complimentary, stay away from matching everything.

With all this in mind, you can have the perfect #weddingoutfit. Let me know what kind of a wedding you are attending.

How To Wear Culottes This Summer

I am sure by now you have seen them everywhere – on runways, in magazines, on celebrities and fashion bloggers. Yes, the culottes are here, but they can be just a little bit confusing for the regular girl. The question is, can anyone wear them and of course HOW to wear them?

Actually wearing culottes  is easier then you think, you just have to keep few things in mind. Fit and proportion are key. You want to look taller and slimmer, so make sure you don’t cut your body at the wrong places. Pair with something equal in volume, a crop top or a short jacket works perfectly. Stay away from wide long jackets or tops. For a complete look pick high shoes, this is an extra step to elongating your body.

Presenting  two easy and  very stylish looks for you. The first one is for the girls in their 20’s and the second for the girls 30’s and up.
