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!

In the Trench(s)

While many parts of the country are still covered in snow and dealing with freezing temps,here in LA we have been deluged with rain for weeks. Thank goodness I planned ahead (way ahead) and happen to have a bevy of trench coats at the ready. (Translation-I have a major coat addiction and own quite a selection(8 and counting) to choose from hanging in my closet. A girl has got to have options. Right?!

The trench coat is a closet staple. It never goes out of style and if you purchase one in a flattering fit and color you will wear it forever. Promise!

If your looking to add a trench coat to your wardrobe- THINK: Basic… COLOR: tan or black STYLE: single or double breasted and preferably belted. Fit is key. Take your time and search until you find the the perfect style for your shape and lifestyle. The basic trench is an absolute investment piece. Remember the mantra-Buy Well…. Buy Once.

Did you get the memo? In case you missed it..here it is- Pink is BIG…(very big) for Spring and that was clearly the case at the Oscars on Sunday. There was allot of Pink in every shade and style and all of it was Pretty with a capital P. Here’s the round up of some of my personal favorites and with Winter winding down a chance to start embracing brighter and bolder colors, I urge you to put a pop of pink into your wardrobe. It will make you feel Pretty- and let’s face it ” we love the pretty. ”

Think Pink

Posted By: Terri

You’re going to be seeing a lot of pink for spring. The trend is already spotted on the Red Carpet starting with last weekends SAG Awards and believe you me it will be popping up in the months ahead.

Pink- comes in a bevy of beautiful hues for Spring 2019- pink, blush, rose, and this year Pantone (the color experts introduce “Sweet Lilac” which I believe is vibrant pink. Whatever you want to call this color and in whatever hue you choose to wear it-pink is so pretty!

So remember, as you’re schlepping through the snow in the cold days of Winter, just think in just a few short months you may literally be “in the pink,.” and everything will be looking a lot more rosy!
