The” White” Commandments for Summer Pants…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Just about every Glamour Girl  I know embraces the well known fact that wearing basic black can make you “appear” slimmer and taller-hence the reason why we have oodles of black in our closets.

But it’s SUMMER (double Yah!) and it’s time to starting wearing all that wonderful white that’s been pushed to the back of your closet for waaaaaay to long-and I’m specifically talking about your basic white pant because not for noth’in they go with EVERYTHING! That’s the good news. The not so good news is that white pants can make you appear heavier IF you don’t abide by a few simple tried and true style rules: P.S. or as I refer to them as ….

The White Commandments:

  • Thou shalt wear white pants that are made in a fabrication that gives ample coverage: translation-if you can see through your white pants and notice any panty lines, pocket lines and/or bikini lines… get in line and buy a new pair that you can’t see thru.
  • Thou shalt wear only white pants that FIT Properly! Fit is KEY. Make sure your white pants fit you PERFECTLY. There should be no signs of pulling/stretching (aka thigh lines going horizontally) or gaping. Both issues only accentuate one’s figure flaws and I don’t think THAT’s the look that anyone is going for. Bear in mind that nobody and I do mean No BODY has a perfect figure so don’t be hard on yourself. Get a pair of white pants/jeans that fit you in the hips and thighs and if need be have the waist tailored to fit.
  • Thou Shalt keep our whites a bright white through proper care & cleaning. White can go from chic to shabby in a matter of seconds if you have a spot, splatter or sweat stains on your garment or if per chance your white has taken on a yellow tinge (from being in your closet past it’s expiration date .(This usually happens with age or dry cleaning any item one too many times). Proper cleaning and maintenance is key when keeping your whites. a beautiful bright WHITE!

Hellllo April. Warm weather days are ahead and what better way to prepare  to look polished than to peruse for the perfect white suit. Now you might be thinking that white suits seems so boring but on the contrary the perfectly appointed white suit can not only be super stylish when the fit is perfection but beyond fashionable and so versatile.

You can pair the perfect white jacket with EVERYTHING and same goes for the pants. Just make sure when wearing white that it fits to a tee, is lined or at the very least you wear the proper under attire to make it seem less and last but not least make sure it’s WHITE (translation-this is an item that must be pristine-no spots, spills or stains because it’s white for goodness sake and everything will show unlike it’s counterpart basic black when you can pretty much spill an entire glass of wine on and no one would be the wiser.

Here are a few looks that might just change your mind about this whole white suit being boring  idea not to mention solidify the notion that it’s a major wardrobe staple for the Spring/ Summer months ahead.

“Pump Up” your outfit

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

One of the easiest ways to put a little pop in any white outfit (which P.S. by the way just happens to be the color of choice for summer)-is to pair said ensemble with the perfect pair of solid color pumps-preferably in a bright color. Try it and see if that just doesn’t “pump up” your outfit to another level.

White on Trend-for Spring 2014

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

I know it’s been a brutal winter in many parts of the country. We’ve had a  polar vortex or two, ice storms, snow storms that caused major flight cancellations and in Atlanta- people abandoning their cars on highways . It’s really been a picnic hasn’t it.  So right about now, I’m thinking that white is the last thing you want to see on the ground. Good enough. But not so fast because white is here to stay. Maybe not in the form of snow but in the form of fashion. White is a MAJOR trend for Spring/Summer 2014 and you can embrace as much white as you like. Wear white in a skirt, dress, suit ,handbag, shoe-you get the picture. White  is so right , especially when you can do the choosing?!

Clean Slate….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

 

There’s just something about Spring that makes me want to clean house- (and I do mean that in the most literal sense of the word). Truth be told I’m pretty organized on a day to day basis but come Spring I have this overwhelming “urge to purge.”Out with the old and in with the new. Now to be clear: I’m not proposing to rid yourself of everything-just those items that you no longer need, use or want.

To get you in the spirit of adopting a “clean slate” what better inspiration than a bevy of beautiful rooms in the purist of color schemes-White.
