Saturday style clinic: How to wear one color from head to toe

This year, the New York Fashion week was filled with white, red and the black-white combo.The runways were also dominated by monochromatic outfits with designers like Stella McCartney showcasing color in their collections.

Monochromatic dressing is when you wear the same color or similar colors from head to toe. One thing to remember when wearing the same color is to accessorize well. An example is the cream outfit below. The brown and gold accessories compliment the cream very well .You do not have to wear the same exact colors, notice how I put together different shades of cream to complete the look .

Can’t wait for spring!

Fashion Friday : Is your closet ready for winter ?

Fashion Fridays: Is your closet ready for winter ?
  1. Wool coat : Every girl should own a good quality wool coat because they are timeless and very elegant. Black and camel are good colors to start with and then you can get adventurous with other colors later. Many coats are made of polyester which is not the best fabric so make sure you choose one made of wool or a wool blend .It is better to pay more for something that will last forever than pay less for something that will last a year.
  2. Snow boots : One of the reasons I don’t look forward to winter is the dreadful snow boot because I find them to be plain ugly. Unfortunately snow boots are a winter necessity especially here in Boston so I have no choice but to own a pair. Thankfully a lot of shoe designers are coming up with stylish winter boots and my favorite are the Sorel boots .

  4. Down Coat :  There are times when a wool coat is not enough to keep you warm on those extremely cold winter days. Down coats are  made to withstand subzero temperatures thus keeping you comfortable when you are outdoors.They also have a tendency to make you look puffy so look for jackets with belts and defined waistlines     

  6. Boots: You can never go wrong with a pair of good quality leather boots. Boots come in all sorts of shapes and sizes from knee high to ankle boots. I suggest owning a pair of riding boots for comfort and style plus a pair of high heeled boots for nights out or work. Start off with a black pair and get a brown pair next.

  8. Leggings:  These are tight fitting stretch pants usually with a elastic waist and go down to your ankle. Leggings tend to be see through so make sure you wear something over them like dresses, skirts and over sized sweaters. Avoid wearing them with tight fitting tops because that just looks wrong in so many ways. I also like to wear my leggings under my pants for extra warmth on cold days.
  9. Infinity Scarves: Also known as loop scarves. These scarves make the perfect winter accessory and they add an element of chic to your closet. You can either double the scarf or drape it depending on your outfit. All you have to do is pull it over your head , loop once and voila!
  10. Leather gloves : leather is all over the fashion runways this year and I am loving it. Its important not to overdo it when it comes to leather so I get my leather fix from gloves. Leather gloves give an edgy elegance to your winter wardrobe, just make sure they are feminine looking. I recently  got some  Etienne Aigner cashmere lined leather gloves at T.J Maxx for just 25 bucks. Remember that you don’t have to break the bank for great style.

Top 5 Fall trends of 2012

1.The ankle boot : Ankle boots are a fall must have . They look great with leggings, skinny jeans, short dresses and skirts. One of the easiest ways to wear black ankle boots is with black tights , this look is flattering for most body types. S and S tip: Never wear ankle boots with a long  skirt or dress, it just doesn’t work.

2.The tuxedo style blazer : I absolutely love blazers, they add an element of chic and elegance to any outfit. If you don’t own a blazer I suggest you put it on your next shopping list because it is a must have for any fashionista. This jacket can be worn formally at work with a pair of black pants and they also look great with skinny jeans and knee high boots.I love wearing mine with a pair of jeans and high heels.

3.Skinny mid rise jeans : These are a definite go to classic. I love that they are fitted from top to bottom with a slightly higher rise that is great for tucking in your tummy. You can wear them with heels or flats and they also slip right into boots with not need for folding or rolling. Need I say more.

4.The oversize clutch : While watching New york and Paris fashion week I noticed a lot of oversize clutches on the runway.Over sized clutches can be worn during the day and still manage to hold all your necessities. I find that clutches are a great way to polish a daytime look , just make sure you don’t over stuff them as it can distort the shape and design. When picking a clutch make sure you choose a bold design, texture or color because plain is just boring and doesn’t stand out. Treat your clutch as an accessory to your outfit.

5.Oxblood : One of the hottest colors this fall is ‘oxblood ‘ (check out the blazer and top above).This is a deep red color with hints of brown making it more demure than regular red. If you don’t want to go crazy with this color I suggest you pair it with black or nude. I love the look of an oxblood peplum top with black skinny jeans and high heels. This color looks great on bags and accessories too .
