legging thanksgiving

The woman of today desires a wardrobe to be comfortable yet stylish, relaxed yet chic. You want versatile pieces that work for your life and enhance your figure and your spirit of style.  As a wardrobe stylist for over 20 years, it is often challenging to find pieces that work for woman of all shapes and sizes and that fit a variety of lifestyles.  Well, ladies after 20 years, I have found THE piece that is every womans and stylists dream! The skirted legging is the new black pencil skirt, your new staple for everyday. Legacy brings you this must have silhouette in a variety of fabrics: cotton, ponte knit, rayon as well as the ever chic, faux leather and suede.  This look takes you from your morning walk or yoga class to dinner, errands, work, and it’s your perfect travel and vacation piece. Expand your wardrobe and look more styled than you ever dreamed, for your amazing life.

Ten’s of thousands of woman are wearing the skirted legging and I am often asked how to style it. I wanted to put together a blog that brings you fashion inspiration for your skirted legging wardrobe. If you’re a newbie to the skirted legging you can find our original cotton version on the QVC website.  Search the QVC website for Legacy skirted leggings to find all of our fabric choices.

Expand your casual wardrobe version beyond simple sweaters and tops, layering continues to be a big trend and here are some ideas on how to layer like a pro. These sweaters and combinations will look AMAZING with any of the Legacy skirted bottoms. Go for the faux leather skirted legging for an edgier daytime or evening look or start with a cotton skirted or Ponte knit  for a daytime “go to” piece. The printed skirted legging choices will also give you the confidence to wear a print on your bottom half without the worry that it makes you look bigger. You are going to look slim, smooth and stylish as the built in skirt instantly slims the hips, thighs and butt.

We LOVE our leggings for Fall but your denim may need a little attention. You will know if you are in need of a denim do-over if you answer yes to any of these questions:

  1. Do you currently own more than 6 pairs of denim but you keep on wearing the same ones over and over?
  2. Do you currently have just one shade of denim?
  3. Have you pulling from the same stack of denim for more than 3 years?

Denim is a wardrobe staple that you count on season to season so it may be the perfect time to refresh and renew this timeless bottom. Your figure flattering, favorite pair of jeans can be cuffed, worn long and with a variety of different shoes that range from tall boots to flat shoes and everything in between.  Fall fashion means that you can find all different types of denim to suit your shape and your personality. You can easily find boot cut, straight leg, skinny jeans or boyfriend styles that are offered in all shades of blue from a light or bleached wash to a medium or dark wash. So, how do you begin this refresh process? I like to keep it simple because having great style is effortless and easy with the right pieces.

  • Begin by purging the denim you don’t wear and get real about which ones you really LOVE! You should ONLY WEAR THE ONES YOU LOVE! Life is too short, love how you look EVERYDAY, this is the goal.
  • Purchase 3 new pairs of denim that fits and flatters your shape TODAY.  1) a dark boot cut pair 2) a dark straight leg pair 3) a pair of light boyfriend jeans.  My favorites updates come from the GAP, their 1969 denim offers a variety of styles and fit for every shape and its affordable!
  • Create your own mannequin!  Get ideas on how to mix up your denim looks by paying attention to what you admire. Take a look on Pinterest and see what denim outfits inspire you.  Do you like to layer, do you like to dress up with leather pieces and great boots? Do you prefer to mix and match your weekend wear?  Perhaps you can try having fun with a fabulous army color jacket, ivory knit sweater,  great scarf  and brown riding boots?  Well, the point is – your style options are endless!!!

What you select out of your closet every day determines how people perceive you.  You make lots of first impressions, whether you know it or not.  Every person you pass on the street, in a store, at work, in a restaurant, at a coffee shop – they are all noticing what you are wearing and based on this, make an impression of you.  How you are perceived in that first impression is up to you.  Are your clothes stained? Torn? Outdated? Ill-fitting?  Sleeves too long?  Are you swimming in that shirt because you have broad shoulders? Are you wearing the correct undergarments?  Are your clothes properly tailored?  Shoes polished and worn heels repaired/replaced?

We see lots of people every day and whether we realize it or not, we have an opinion about that person, even if we never utter a word!  How do you want to be perceived?  What do your clothes say about you?  How you dress has a definite effect on how people perceive you and how you feel about yourself.  If you are dressed for the day and know that you look good, you exude confidence, which shows in your demeanor, posture and attitude.

It’s Fall, so it’s time to go through your closet and sort it out in 4 piles: Keep, Consign, Donate & Throw Away.  People only wear about 20% of the clothes in their closet, so why keep it?  Get rid of clothes that do not fit you NOW!  Dress for today, not for the weight you are going to gain or lose in the next year!  You need to feel confident about yourself, no matter your size or shape and the way to do that is to dress your shape NOW.

Most clothes off the rack do not fit women properly.  We are all different shapes and sizes so to find the proper fit when buying clothes, fit the largest part of the body you are shopping for (i.e. broad shoulders), but you have a small waist and chest so a size Large fits your shoulders, but it is huge everywhere else – FIND A TAILOR!!!  Almost every dry cleaners has a tailor so find one and get those clothes tailored to your body! Whether it is getting waistlines taken in, sleeves shortened, skirts and pants hemmed, waistbands taken in, etc.  Proper fit makes the difference of looking pulled together and someone thinking you are wearing your Mom’s or Aunt’s hand me downs!

The woman below looks like she lost 25-30 lbs just by wearing properly proportioned and fitting clothes – who wouldn’t want that?????  Don’t settle for fitting right off the rack and ill fitting clothes – FIND A TAILOR!

It was a beautiful sunny and stylish morning last Saturday, at Gillette Stadium where we met celebrity stylist for the NFL, Phillip Bloch.  It was an event to showcase the latest trends in ladies NFL apparel.  Ladies NFL apparel has certainly come a long way, it’s not about wearing your husbands hoodie on game day or any day, any longer. It’s a trend called athleisure that has taken the runways by storm and the NFL is all over it! Today’s woman wants comfort and style and if your love your sports, you are going to love all of the choices available for your favorite team.

NFLstyle1

Phillip reviewed the top trends behind the fashions found at the NFL shop. Feminine skirts, leathers and mixed media jackets all look great paired with a great color block t-shirt or fitted sweatshirt. Your personal style, your brand, it’s all about incorporating your favorite pieces into outfits that you LOVE to wear. The sporty look is sleek, minimal and even luxurious. It was great to see many of the NFL women pairing the newest tees with current pieces that showed off their personal styles.

It’s time to wear tights and women everywhere are celebrating! Tights and trouser socks are style staples that are so simple to wear and allow women to expand their wardrobes for the season. It doesn’t matter what shape you are today, from petite to plus size, tights and stockings shape your legs, cover your flaws and enhance your confidence in clothing. The skirt, tights, tall boot combination is a fall favorite, works for every body shape and takes you from work to weekend.

It’s early in the season, time to purge and prepare to look and feel your best everyday. It’s my mantra, dress for every moment because every moment matters. This season stands out as one of the best confident building seasons of all. Layering and legwear help to enhance your figure by giving you the coverage you need to feel fabulous.

Begin with building the basics, let’s look at your legs to start. You need a wardrobe of stockings that work with all outfits, moods and weather.

Today, we are going undercover to emphasize the importance of wearing the right undergarments. Tis the season for lightweight fabrics and colors that need the proper pairings in order to look their best on you. If you follow me, you know that my dream as a stylist is that women everywhere get dressed with intention everyday. Looking your best and feeling your best for the magical day that lies ahead, will bring you heightened good energy and abundance. Beginning each day with this heightened level of confidence that you deserve, will greatly enhance the abundance that you draw into your life, an abundance of love, happiness, and opportunities for your beautiful life.

 

Beating the heat can be beautiful when wearing this wonderful undershirt that will keep you cool and confident this season. If you have every worried about sweating or leaving stains on your pretty blouses, worry no more thanks to Nudy Patooty.

-Feel fresh and keep your clothes clean all day
-Super soft bamboo fabric regulates your body temperature, is anti-odor and wicks and absorbs moisture away from your body
-Gentle stretch in the fabric smooth’s your figure
-Reinforcement in the underarm prevents perspiration and antiperspirant from staining clothes
-Reduce the frequency and cost of dry cleaning
When it comes to the color of your undergarments this summer keep it nude. This skin tone color is camouflaged under all of your summer wardrobe choices and makes it much easier to get dressed with confidence. Getting dressed with intention is easy and effortless when you start with the right pieces.
Bottoms UP!
Another favorite of mine are the vanishing edge panties found at Soma Intimates.
soma
These panties stay in place, give you the appropriate coverage for your shape and they virtually disappear under your clothing. Say goodbye to VPL (visible panty lines) forever.
Wearing the right undergarments sets the foundation for your clothing. Good undergarments make your clothes look even better on you. Getting dressed with purpose and intention is easy when you purge what isn’t working and you bring in the pieces that serve you best.
Dress for every moment because every moment matters in your beautiful life.
Yours in style,
Debbie

Summer is a season that everyone loves. This is the season of warmth, extended sunshine, and happiness. It’s also a time when your style can go horribly wrong or beautifully right. You need options and there are plenty of new and exciting styles, shapes and products to keep you cool and your look HOT!  I found great pieces that are easy to wear, easy to pack and will give you instant fashion and style.

The Legacy Skirted Legging

http://www.qvc.com

This brilliant, one-piece fashion combination is an instant boost of confidence, covering you in all the right places! It looks great with a t-shirt or tank for a casual walk with the dog, or yoga class. I love its versatility because it can also be styled differently throughout your day for all of your activities. Pair it with a blouse, dress up your tee with a scarf, and denim jacket or wear it with a blazer to give it a chic, European flair. You are that woman who is appropriately dressed for your life but takes it up a notch without even trying. Choose the right pieces and show your friends how easy it can be to look fabulous EVERY SINGLE DAY.

The Romper

The romper has returned from the eighties. I remember wearing these in terrycloth as a kid! Today, they are modern and fun but you definitely do not need to spend a lot of money on a piece that may just be here for a season.  Check out FandF Clothing, a British store bringing us their fabulous and on trend looks at affordable prices. The first two stores in Holyoke, Massachusetts and Trumbull, CT with many, more stores to come.

As a stylist who has dressed women for almost 3 decades, I believe that women deserve to look and feel their best everyday and it’s easier than you think. I want you to enhance your look because it will enhance your life!

Dress for every moment because every moment matters.

At your service,

Debbie Wright
