New Year Means Something New for your Closet!
Posted on January 29 2018
2018 is here and we've already made it through January!
A great way to beat the winter blues is to give your closet a little boost! But before you shop your favorite boutique, read my top 5 fashion tips!
1. In the words of my good friend Candace, animal print can be worn with anything! Candace is right!!! You can wear animal print with everything because it is a neutral! Pair an animal print scarf or animal print ballet flat,high heel boot or stiletto to any outfit and you will be the best dressed at any event. And don’t forget that you can top an animal print skirt with any color blouse, shirt or sweater. Just the other day I wore my favorite burgundy sweater with my A-line leopard print skirt to work.
2. Black, brown, olive green and navy are also a neutral, therefore, they can be worn together! I often break up an all black outfit with a brown boot or shoe and animal print belt. Another chic look is a navy dress with brown and red plaid scarf, and tall black boots or booties. And right now I am wearing black leggings with a brown tunic and animal print scarf ! Earlier this week I wore olive ankle pants with a plain white t-shirt and zebra print scarf.
3. Not only is it ok to mix patterns, it's also a very chic and trendy fashion look! I love wearing my black and white polka dot skirt with a striped shirt or brown, black, and orange printed top. How about tartan plaid pants with a leopard print coat? Wow, so amazing! Also amazing and classy is a striped sweater over a plaid blouse or a plaid scarf with a floral top. And, if you have a leopard blouse it can be worn with any patterned sweater, coat or vest.
4. Wearing white is ok after Labor Day! I wear my white skinny jeans all year long. Here are a few of my favorite pairings- plaid poncho, floral top, jean jacket, off the shoulder sweater or lacy kimono.
5. Everyone looks pretty in pink! I wear a pair of mauve jeans at least once a week! It is another great neutral that pairs with other neutrals and beyond. Other neutral pinks to consider are blush, rose, fuchsia, magenta, bubblegum, coral, hot pink and watermelon.
