Let’s talk about …The Leopard Print Pencil Skirt

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Happy Monday. My day started out with a wonderful style question:

What does one pair with a leopard print pencil skirt?

First off-I L.O.V.E. animal print and have a few basic style rules that should help you navigate on how to wear this print to your best advantage:

1. Wear only ONE animal print at a time. Translation. The only time  different animal prints should be paired together is at the Zoo and even then it can get dicey.(Translation) I don’t recommend pairing a leopard print with a zebra print. Choose one print and stick to  that as being your statement piece.

Only wear ONE animal print at a time.

2. Leopard is a neutral.. Feel free to pair your animal print item with just about anything and everything but use restraint. Leopard can be paired with solid colors from black to vibrant hues, stripes, plaids and denim. However, it’s best to choose ONE and make your outfit cohesive.

Plush pairing: Plaid & Animal Print

3. Fit is Key  This rule is the number one mantra for looking chic! Like anything and everything you wear fit is the absolute deal maker or breaker when it comes to looking your best.

4. Faux is the ONLY way to go! I am a major animal advocate so I must say that FAUX is the only way to go when it comes to purchasing animal print anything. Faux animal prints have gotten so high tech they look like the real thing and nobody gets hurt

Top it OFF: A basic white blouse or tee, a beautiful red sweater or blouse, basic black crew, sweater or jacket  or opt out for a tan plan.

Jacket options to layer over animal print skirts  are endless:  Go bright to black, denim and motorcycle styles. All work well just make sure you check proportion for your body type.

Footwear: Depending on your look -(sporty, casual, dressy) pair your animal print skirt with  a bevy of beautiful footwear options from sandals to sneakers, flats, pumps and boots .

  • For a look of sophistication and elegance: Add a solid color sweater/blouse and coordinating Blazer/Jacket to elevate your look. You could also add pumps to match. However I do love the basic black strappy pointed toe pump.

Stuck in Neutral…Not such a bad thing after all!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Wardrobe basics

Stuck in Neutral..is NOT always a bad thing. Case in point the outfits below  are these lovely outfits perfect for fall and all in neutral tones.

Neutral tones  when paired together in an outfit allow a blank slate  for you to add a POP of color or texture for interest. At the same time when  neutral tones are worn from head to toe -can be verrrrry slimming. Sooooo it’s your basic win win combo.

Here are just a few  examples to get you inspired . Pair your neutrals together and add that extra special accessory to amp your style up just a tad. Happy Monday and have a beautiful week ahead.

Craving Veronica Beard….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

Are you familiar with Veronica Beard? If not then let me introduce you to one designer that has her finger on the pulse of everything hip with a major dose of chic.  I’ve had my eye on this designer for the past year and I’m here to tell you -she is one designer to watch! Although her clothing runs a bit on the pricey side they are well made and tailored to perfection.

This week, the Veronica Beard I heart NY Blazer made the rounds on Instagram and became an instant sensation when Hoda  Kotb showed up sporting this blazer in black on Hoda & Jenna. Although it has a side of whimsey with the monogram on the back, it would serve as a fun wardrobe staple that you can wear for years to come.

I’ve also sourced a few other Veronica Beard blazers for you  to peruse below- 2 that are ON SALE (our favorite four letter word).  Click on over to her site for her entire Fall collection and SALE ITEMS that are deeply discounted. https://veronicabeard.com/
