Style Tip Sunday


It’s Style Tip Sunday! Today’s tip from my App and Book Style 365, is all about…   BLAZERS: A classic blazer is a great wardrobe staple. Extremely versatile, a blazer can be worn in a number of ways and paired with a variety of pieces.   Use it to dress up a pair of shorts or jeans or throw it over a dress. Team it with a crisp white shirt or button it up with a camisole underneath.   Fold the sleeves twice for a more relaxed version and to give your outfit a visual “lift”, or wrap a belt around the waist to show off your curves.   When shopping for a blazer make sure that it sits properly at the shoulder, that you…

It’s Style Tip Sunday! Today’s tip from my App and Book Style 365, is all about…   LEATHER: If you’d like to wear leather (real or faux) but are afraid of looking too hard, edgy or like a dominatrix, there are a number of ways to soften the look.   One way is to avoid wearing pieces that are extremely tight, studded or have metal detailing.

If when you wear them you get severe muffin top, they’re too low.   Many designers, brands and manufacturers make jeans in a variety of rises – low, mid and high. Keep looking until you find the right style to fit your shape.   (Don’t forget to sit, crouch and bend over in them before you buy, to see what happens.)…

It’s Style Tip Sunday! Today’s tip from my App and Book Style 365, is all about…   ACCESSORIES: The most common question I hear from women is “How do I look put together?” The answer: Accessories.   Accessories can take a look from drab to fab and can complete any outfit. Many women don’t take that final and most crucial step and then feel unfinished.   Whether you’re off to work, heading out with the girls or even running errands, accessorize, accessorize, accessorize.   The simple act of adding just one or two pieces (some earrings, a watch, a bracelet, necklace or belt) will add pizazz to your outfit and give you a polished look.   Want more tips on how…

It’s Style Tip Sunday! Today’s tip from my App and Book Style 365, is all about…   BALANCE: One of the key factors to looking great is wearing the right proportions, thus creating visual balance.   One easy way to look balanced is to wear a voluminous or loose top when wearing skinny or narrower bottoms and vice versa – wearing a tailored or slim fitting top with a wider bottom (like a wide leg pant or flowing skirt).   Another way to look balanced is to follow the Long Over Short / Short Over Long rule. Wear a long top or jacket (i.e. classic blazer) over short or skinny bottoms (shorts, mini skirt, skinny jeans) and a short top or…
