Preparing for the holiday season can be a stressful time, one area that shouldn’t is what you are going to wear. Do you find yourself rushing to the mall last minute or late night searching for that perfect dress online ? Are you looking through your closet minutes before you are about to leave doubting that you are dressed appropriately? The worst feeling is when you show up and don’t feel fabulous. Ok, take a breath…I’m here to assist!

When you buy something, make sure you are able to create a few different outfit options.  If you have multiple parties to attend and you buy one bright red dress…well then everyone is going to remember it. However if you buy an item that you can wear many ways…that is key.

Follow my style tips and you will be set this holiday season. And please don’t buy 5 dresses for 5 different parties…no need for that.

Three Ways To Wear a Blouse

work wear classics styling tips womens fashion ideas back to work outfit ideas mom style ideasThe utilitarian blouse is a wardrobe staple of mine. I wear it the same way I wear the classic white blouse, with everything.  In the first image, I’m wearing the blouse causally with jeans, black puffer coat, black ankle boots and choker necklace.

In the second image, I’ve kept my outfit monochromatic and left the blouse unbuttoned. Wearing the same black ankle boots and black turtleneck from previous post. An important styling tip to remember is that when you leave any blouse unbuttoned it acts like a soft blazer. Creating more outfit options for you.

In the third image you can dress the utilitarian blouse up by adding a skirt or simple slip dress, with a statement necklace or earrings.

When you can wear an item from your closet three different ways, your outfit options are endless. I feel like I say that in every post…but isn’t that what we all want from our wardrobe?

M is for Mules

Mules are a classic style of shoe that will go with just about everything in your closet. I love wearing my black kitten heel mules with jeans and cropped style pants. With so many options out there, I would suggest sticking to more neutral colors which will fit perfectly into your wardrobe, and yes leopard is considered a neutral.

Jeans are not complicated. You find the right fit, style and jeans will act like a loyal friend. You can depend on them and will always make you feel good. Isn’t that what we all want from our wardrobe?

Love this look. Classic and chic.

The Forever Classic

Wouldn’t you rather have 7 amazing items hanging in your closet than 20 unremarkable items that you don’t feel fabulous wearing? Pick out the items in your closet that you absolutely love and get rid of the rest. Often our closets are full of clothing but be honest with yourself, how much do you actually wear? I have learned over the years how to edit and re-edit my closet. I may not have a closet full of clothing but what I do have is clothing I love and feel great wearing. Isn’t that what we all want? Believe me, you don’t need a closet full of expensive designer clothing to take your wardrobe up to the next level. I have also learned when to splurge and when not to. What we all need to start with are the basics which will become the foundation of your wardrobe. The basics will go with everything in your closet, never go out of style, and your look is always on point. Don’t think that basic has to be boring either. Remember every item in your closet even the classic white t-shirt should make you feel amazing in. Stick with me, I will show you how…

7 Days of Style Basic #1: Jeans

Every woman should have at least one pair of jeans hanging in their closet. Jeans are the most versatile and practical item you will own. Jeans can dress up or dress down an outfit. Two years ago I tried a pair of high waist Rag & Bone jeans and loved them instantly. I’m a huge fan of the high waist jeans, but you have to find the right style and fit for your body.

Below is an example of my fall wardrobe staples. 

  1. Rag & Bone high waist jean
  2. Black turtleneck
  3. Tna puffer coat
  4. Stuart Weitzman ankle boots
  5. Silk scarf
