Suiting UP

Suits for women have come a long way from the very basic (and maybe a little boring) navy or black, single breasted, 2 button down jacket with matching A- line skirt and a pair of pants. . Thank goodness! Suits for Spring 2019 seem to have a bit more edge and style and are much more flattering.

If you happen to be looking for a few quick and easy tips to UP your “Spring Suit Style” here are a few that should do the trick:

  • First and foremost FIT is key! Your suit should fit you to perfection. You can take a moderately priced suit and have it appear to be Couture with the right tailor.
  • If you’re opting for a color PINK IS BIG this season. Very Big. I’m featuring a soft pink from Veronica Beard in today’s blog but you can find suits in a wide array of colors and styles.

  • Heels. Yes, I said it heels. Please “elevate” your style and add a heel instead of flats. You don’t have to teeter on 5 inch stilettos but please promise me you’ll at least try. Heels give you a polished put together look and you’ll appear taller and thinner. (Your basic win-win)!
  • Accessories are the perfect finishing touch. Add a great handbag in addition to opting in and adding earrings/ a sleek statement necklace/ bracelet or ring. You don’t have to do all 4 jewelry options-but add one great piece and it will pull your whole look together and amp up your style another notch or 3!

Spring’s Pretty Pencils….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

I have always been a fan of the pencil skirt. It’s really no surprise that this wardrobe staple has lasted for decades.  Depending on the trend of the day it may be  cut shorter or longer but to have a pencil skirt that fits your proportions  will make any Glamour Girl look longer and leaner.  (Hence the reason why this item has been a wardrobe staple for years). I highly recommend having at least one great fitting pencil in your wardrobe.  If you can’t get the perfect fit “off the rack” might I suggest enlisting a capable tailor. It will be well worth the extra money to have your pencil fit to perfection. 

Start with a basic pencil in white or black.

Have your pencil tailored to fit and add a perfect pair of pumps for a look that is long and lean.

It must be summer because museums around the globe seem to be ramping up some fabulous fashion exhibits for tourists to enjoy. Last week I feature the latest offering at the Victoria and Albert museum in England and thanks to the purveyors of fashion at FIT in New York another exhibit has opened entitled Fashion A-Z…Highlights from the Collection of the Museum at FIT. The exhibit is the second of two consecutive exhibits that spotlights selected designs from the museums permanent collection. Word on the street is that the collection in total at FIT consists of (wait for it…) 50,000 garments and accessories. Wouldn’t you like to take a stroll through that massive clothing vault? The exhibit is located in the Textile History Gallery at the Museum at FIT and is running until November 10, 2012. So.o.o.o if you should find yourself in NYC and want to see some major fashion at it‘s design finest. Check this exhibit out.
