The culottes’ trend was named one the top trends for Spring this year and there are clear fashion rules when it comes to rocking this new crop pant look.  I love this look for the office as well as for a daytime or evening event.  It’s  a refreshing modern option to update your trousers for the Spring and Summer seasons.

  • ALWAYS wear with a heel, stiletto or a feminine wedge. Keep your shoes slim with clean lines and as high as you can comfortably go in order to balance the width of the leg.  All shoes found on Zara.com.

  • Always wear a more structured, polished and fitted top.  Proper balance and proportion are key in pulling together a rocking, runway look for everyday. Monochromatic is an easy always stunning option as well as contrasting black and white for more dramatic appeal.  If your chosen culotte style is a bit more narrow than wide, you can go with a slightly looser sweater or blouse. Balance is key!

Have fun trying this trend and you can always try it affordably at QVC.com. QVC host Gabrielle Kerr gave them a try and the viewers gave this trend a thumbs UP!

Oprah has stated in her bra revolution series that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra. In my own personal styling experiences, I would confidently state that every single woman I have dressed over a span of 20 years has been wearing the wrong bra size. Why do women wear the wrong bra? Your bra becomes that piece that you put on with an autopilot motion and it  stays in your drawer for years without a thought of updating. Young and old, slim or curvy, every single woman needs to go for a professional fitting every six months to ensure that you are wearing the right size and that you have proper coverage. Why do you need a new bra? It is one of  the most important foundation pieces to your wardrobe and you will instantly look better in your clothing. I have seen tears shed once women experience a proper fitting bra, it is life altering in the best way. There are few areas of your wardrobe that you really need to invest and undergarments should be where your start.

Where to begin. I recommend heading to Nordstrom or to Soma Intimates where the experts can measure and direct you to the right brand for your body. Begin building your bra wardrobe with a wear with everything nude, seamless bra that looks best under a simple white tee and beyond. Next, I would add a smooth, seamless black and then have some fun with something sexy and textured for those fun, evening outfits.

Next on your list is a body smoother, a must have for under all skirts and dresses. It will smooth and shape your belly and thighs giving you an instant boost of confidence. My favorites come from Assets, made by Spanx and found at Target, I recommend one in nude for under your lighter fabrics and one black for your darker bottoms. You will find a new found confidence when you smooth out your bottom half!

Begin your day putting on the best undergarments and I promise you will love your look.

Fashion trends change in the blink of an eye and season to season style is an ever evolving movement. How do you keep up fashionably and affordably? My fashion wish for you in 2015 is that as you enter into this new year, new you, better than EVER mindset with a focus on connecting your clothing with your inner being and messaging. I wish for you to make wardrobe choices that you LOVE which in turn will fully support your 2015 better than EVER goals!   It’s time to elevate how you look and how you feel when you make when you open your closet each morning.  Oprah said it best in her “What I Know For Sure” book, “your purchases should delight you and enhance your life.”

Many of you are loving the athleisure trend for your casual wardrobe. It’s popularity embraces fashion and function with comfortable and chic pieces that fit your life and flatter your shape. Our Legacy skirted leggings have been hugely popular with their attached skirt for instant appeal, style, modesty and versatility. Here are some inspirational combinations to pair with your skirted legging wardrobe.

Have fun mixing and matching this winter. Faux fur and plaid are stylish and fun combos. Add a sparkly necklace to your casual sweater and vest for a pop of glam. Layering continues to be important to keep you warm this winter and on trend. Layer with fine pieces that are polished and don’t add bulk. Try our  rayon rich, shaping tee from Legacy, found on QVC. It’ secret shaping power smoothes your upper body, tummy and the back of your arms while leaving you room to wear your favorite bra. You will never wear another cotton tee again when you see how flattering this looks on your shape. It is your tee for layering or to wear alone for ALL seasons. Splurge on a designer pair of sunglasses and a special handbag that fits your personality and your needs, these two accessories elevate every outfit!!

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.

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.

I love the new sweater styles, sleek not bulky, so cute and you can wear it well beyond just game day!

This may be a stretch for your office environment but I love the play on sporty can be feminine too. It’s self expression and self confidence that keeps you connected and in sync with your style and your soul.

Dress for every moment, because every moment matters!  GAME ON!

Yours in style,
