I hope you had a festive and fabulous 4th of July. Wasn’t it beyond joyful to have life and all it’s fireworks back?!As we start a new work week, I am  writing this post in answer to a question from a lovely reader asking: What does one wear when jeans just aren’t cutting it on warm weather days?

115 degrees outside in LA and opting to wear a Sundress I made with a favorite pattern from Vogue.

The good news is that there are oodles of fashionable options that  you can choose from -no matter what your size or age. My ongoing mantra for everything you wear is that FIT is the Number 1 component to make sure you look stylish.

  1. The Summer Dress: O.K. so this is an absolute no brainer because dresses are not only comfortable but they keep you cool!

Halters are back….

Easy breezy flowing dresses

2. Skirts...The number ONE trending item this season.

    • Long/short/fitted or flared you can’t go wrong with a beautiful skirt.

Skirts are the number one apparel items trending for Summer.

 

Vogue pattern #8882

Keep it cool and classy with beautiful coverage.

3. Capris.. Always a  great idea for Summer . Pair with a perfect top and whah lah instant outfit that looks chic and stylish.

Cute capris are always a summer staple

 

Beautiful fitted capris with a long flowy top are a perfect solution if you want to disguise a heavier bottom area.

4. Jumpsuits are sooo In and come  in a wide array of styles and colors.

Summer jumpsuits are Major for the Season. So many options to choose from and soooo stylish.

Jumpsuit love in a lightweight denim.

5. Shorts…A Summer main stay. If however your legs are in need of a little coverage you have a few solutions: a) Self tanner can disguise a wide assortment of flaws b.) opt for pairing shorts with a  kimono for coverage of those not so “pretty areas” usually associated with aging and loss of collagen.

If you have great legs (translation no dimpling) then you can opt for some sensational summer suiting with SHORTS!

LOVE a Kimono!! Wear it over shorts to hide a multitude of sins or pair it with a bevy of beautiful summer selections…pants, capris, shorts, jeans)

Holiday Quick List..The Festive Skirt

Posted By: Terri

Tulle Skirt @ Etsy.com $127.00

Holiday Quick List #3 is the FESTIVE skirt. It is always good to have a “skirt on standby” during the holidays because it’s a great wardrobe staple and far more forgiving if you’re having trouble fitting into your pants and or jeans “comfortably” due to a bit of holiday overindulging.

If you’re looking to extend your skirt wardrobe to the absolute max..then by all means go Back to Basic Black. You can take an everyday pencil skirt and give it holiday appeal by adding  accessories and  a beautiful blouse or sweater. Case in point is this lovely pencil skirt with an off the shoulder blouse and statement necklace. FABU!

Back to Black  

You can also consider a beautiful black skirt in a holiday fabrication of velvet or satin and switch up the skirt length for a bevy of possibilities.

Skirt @ Storenvy $168.00

Ezpopsy Black Velvet Mermaid Skirt $68.41

 

There are oodles of options when it comes to the look of a holiday skirt and the major tidbit of style advice I can offer is to choose something that you can mix and match with a multitude of items ….(translation -don’t pick something to fussy or ornate). Think simple lines but festive fabrications. This is an item I hope you will be able to use for years to come so keep it simple but sensational.

Here are a few fashionable and fabulous selections to consider.

SPARKLE & SHINE

Newchic.com Metallic Skirt ($79.61 SALE $49.61)

Etsy Shop Hidden Room (Available in Size and color of your choice) $60.00 5 star rating!

Tulle

Tulle Skirt @ Morning Lavender.com$66.99
