Wear Now, Wear Later: white trousers

Wear Now Wear Later: white trousers
You know those easy, breezy trousers you reach for during the hot Summer months? Well you can take them from Summer to Fall with the right styling. For Summer, keep them light with a silky blouse and simple accessories. As Fall approaches, ditch the blouse in favor of a lightweight knit and a statement necklace. Add a red lip and rich cognac sandals to warm it up for the changing season.

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

One Dress from the Office to a Night Out

One Dress from the Office to a Night Out
So you have this great tank dress that you can throw on with heels and go because it is just that awesome? But how can you get more use out of said dress, especially with the weather cooling down? Wear it to the office and for a night out, of course! Pair it with a classic black blazer and nude pumps for work. Add a belt and a menswear inspired watch to keep the look professional and modern. Try slick gray nails as a fresh alternative to peach. For nighttime, ditch the blazer and belt and take on the dress over pants trend! Wear cool leather pants on the bottom and black pointed toe pumps. A chain necklace (vintage Givenchy!) and a bold lip amp up the look. What do you think? How would you style a tank dress for Fall?

One Blouse for Work and Play

Work --> Play
For the second installment of the transition from office to evening challenge, I chose this amazing blouse by Etro. Go with the natural tones for daytime, by choosing a classic nude pencil skirt and pumps. Chic black studs and a roomy leather bag in a contrasting hue pull the look together. For cocktail hour, ditch the conservative skirt in favor of skinny, black leather pants (or jeans if having leather plastered to your thighs isn’t your thing… It isn’t for everyone). Roll up the sleeves of the blouse to reveal a sick metal cuff, and step in to a killer pair of black pumps. Add small jolts of color with a bright red clutch and lipstick (the hue of the season), and voila! You are ready for a night on the town… Where would you wear this blouse, and how would you style it?
