Valentine’s Day: What to Wear

Valentine's Day: What to Wear
Whatever the occasion, here are a few V-Day inspired outfits you can wear this week. Personally, I like subtlety on holidays… You won’t find me wearing jeans dotted with a heart print or a pullover with cupid plastered on the front (do they even make this?), so here are some understated ways to incorporate the love this week…
Office: Try going bold with red trousers and a ridiculously-cool tee. Adding a structured blazer pulls the look together. Luxurious touches like a gold cap-toe pump, a rich leather bag, and a menswear-inspired watch keep it classic and elegant.
Ferragamo trousers, DVF blazer, Markus Lupfer tee, Kate Spade pumps (similar), Hermes watch, Madewall bag, and Kelly Wearstler studs
Dinner Date: If you and your someone are going out to eat, opt for a classic black/white dress with just a slight nod to the heart symbol. Add statement earrings and a pop of red with your bag to make the look extra special.
Victoria Beckham dress, Saint Laurent pumps, Prada clutch, Dannijo earrings, Kelly Wearstler ring
Valentine’s Day Brunch: Whether you are hitting a cool brunch spot with your girlfriends or grabbing a bite with your man, a pretty lace pencil skirt gets a cool modern update when paired with a chambray and brogues. Add heart-shaped touches like diamond earrings and a patent pouch to stay on theme.
L.K. Bennet skirt (similar), Madewell chambray, DSW brogues, Michael Kors watch, Coach studs, Mango pouch
Staying In: If you are cooking dinner or lounging for V-day (because you are poor like my man and me), then all you need is just a pop of pink to spice up your usual basics. Add a stack of gold bracelets and trendy loafers to pull this classic look together.
Marc by Marc Jacobs jeans, V-neck blouse, J.Crew loafers, Eberjey bra, Amrita Singh bangles

The Classics

The Classics
I apologize for my absence! I’ve been super busy lately with some new projects, particularly styling for Keaton Row. I’ve noticed a trend recently among my clients… they all want classic pieces that they can style in different ways. And I couldn’t agree more! To me, the three most classic pieces worth investing in are a black blazer, a white button-down blouse, and dark denim jeans. Not only do these three items make a complete outfit that is classic and chic, they can be mixed up in infinite ways. Here are just three examples of how to wear your classics in a not-so-average way.

 

1. The Black Blazer: Layering with a black blazer is the easiest way to make an outfit look more structured, put-together, polished, however you want to say it… A bright-hued, flirty dress is balanced with a sleek black blazer and studded pumps.
Blazer: Theory, Dress: M Missoni, Pumps: Valentino, Clutch: DVF, Earrings: NUR 

 

2. The White Button-Down: A menswear-inspired piece, the white button-down naturally looks great with trousers or jeans, but I also like the wild-card pairing of something feminine and romantic. This look is a modern take on work-wear with a slim-patterned skirt and rich ankle-booties.
Blouse: Equipment, Skirt: Prabal Gurung, Booties: Vince Camuto (only $139!), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Bracelet: Kazuri

 

3. The Dark Denim Jean: A dark jean can easily be dressed up or down to fit your style. For a laid-back cool look, layer with a jumper and a scarf. Tasseled loafers and gold jewelry keep the look modern and sophisticated.
Jeans: J Brand, Madame Sweatshirt: Zoe Karssen (absolutely in love), Loafers: Madison Harding, Bag: Cambridge Satchel Co., Scarf: Tory Burch, Watch: Kate Spade, Leather wrap bracelet: Marc by Marc Jacobs
