How to Dress Stylish for Work

As a stylist, one of the questions I am often asked by my clients is “How do I dress stylish for work?”.  I would advise starting off with a work wardrobe staple such as a pencil skirt, a pair of dress pants, or a sheath dress.  You then want to add an on trend or stylish item, maybe bold color pumps, a blouse in the color of the season, or a nice nice scarf.

For my outfit I chose a pencil skirt (staple), a stylish but professional graphic print blouse, and bold white heels (very on trend these days).

STYLE TIP:  If you’re a curvy girl like myself, depending on your work environment, I would go with a thicker material for your skirt or dress.  Knit tends to cling the body and accentuates the curves.

Hello Spring – Florals

Happy Friday!!  We’re officially in spring and I’m celebrating with a little florals today.  My top has a hint of floral print so it’s perfect for those not wanting to take the trend full on. 

STYLE TIP:  My top is little flowy and with it tucked in, it made me look bigger than what I am and a little boxy.  My solution?  A belt of course!  The wide belt helps to define my waist and shows my shape.

Crop Top & Maxi Skirt

Ok, so I’m a little obsessed with crop tops and the different ways in which they can be styled.  You may remember a few months ago when I paired a crop top with a pencil skirt.  Now I would love to try styling a crop top with a maxi skirt.  This right here would be my ideal ensemble for maybe a dinner date or drinks with the ladies.

How To Look Flattering in Boyfriend Jeans

Because there’s a little bad in all of us :).

STYLE TIPS:  I have 2 style tips today.  1) I say if you’re going to wear boyfriend jeans, keep a feminine silhouette on the top.  I chose to tie my tank up in the back to make it a crop top but a fitted tank will also work.  Since the jeans are a loose fit this gives it a nice balance.

2)  This next tip is for my shorties out there.  I stand at 5’6″ so my ankle strap heels are fine with my cropped jeans.  However, if you’re a bit shorter than me, lose the ankle strap heels for this outfit since it will cut off the line of your legs and make you appear shorter.

March Accessory Faves

A girl can never have too many accessories!  Well that’s what I believe, anyway.  I am literally obsessing over every item on my March Faves wishlist.  It’s all about color watches this spring and this striking blue Michael Kors watch would be a great add on to any outfit.  And how fab is the art deco Sabine necklace?!  If you know me, then you know I have a thing for scarves.  You will definitely see the unique newspaper print scarf with a splash of pink draped around my neck very soon.

Which would you love to add to your collection?

The Body-Con Dress

Happy Hump Day!!  We’re half way through the week!  I don’t know about you all, but I am certainly feeling this lost of an hour.

Moving on to what I’m excited about!  I’ve just discovered a new department at Nordstrom that I am in love with.  It’s called their Savvy Trends department; great product at affordable prices.  That is where I snagged this sheer striped body-con dress.

I’ve been wanting to style my white pumps for a while now and thought why not pair them with this black dress.  The only problem I was having was that I didn’t have a clutch that worked well with this outfit.  And then I looked down on my bathroom floor, and voila…my new Victoria’s Secret makeup bagSo now my makeup bag doubles as a clutch on occasions.

STYLE TIP:  If you’re not exactly happy with your mid section or you feel a little uncomfortable wearing a form fitting dress, trying wearing shapewear, such as Spanx, under your dress.  It sucks you in and gives a smoother appearance.  I have clients of all sizes that wear spanx! 

If you are still not too sure, throw a blazer on top.  You still have the body-con dress but with a little more coverage.

Mixing Prints – Camo & Leopard

Happy Friday!!  Today I’m having a little fun mixing prints.  I’ve never really been into playing with different prints and patterns.  Mixing colors…yes! Mixing prints…this is new for me!  I happened to want to wear my camo jacket and my leopard pumps and couldn’t decide which was going to win, so I decided to let both of them have the spotlight for the day.  What do you think?  Did I pull off mixing camo and leopard?

Spring Must Have: The Red Blazer

Since it looks like LA won’t be having winter this year I’ve moved on to spring!  I’m on the search for a red blazer that I can dress up with a fab pump or dress down with a pair of fashion sneakers.  I love pairing blazers with graphic tees.  Oh, and how cute are the animal print bags in the set below?!  I want them both!!
