Spring Summer Series
Ok- this could mean tons of stuff. But let’s narrow it down to the nitty gritty and see what it is you can re-style over and over: Staples.
So, whether you’re the type of girl who needs tons of stuff, or you’re a minimalist, here’s my Stylist point of view on some must-haves:
At least one day bag and one evening bag. Here everyone thinks black (so that it goes with everything)- I’ll let you in on something; come closer: Black can age you and can actually ruin the whole look! Yeah you read that right. A better choice would be something colorful enough to wear during the day (so it matches with pretty much everything!) Or even a paillettes- colourful gem.
And for the evening, why not a delicious metallic gold or silver? Perfect!
Get yourself a great jumpsuit. This little gem can be dressed down with sneaker and a jean jacket , or dressed up with bling and sling back sandals. You need this- and- somehow it’s always on trend.
A suit jacket /blazer (men’s even better!). Wear it belted (with nothing under- like a shirt) ; open over jeans; dressed up with a gorgeous scarf and pants or skirt; over a dress. Ok I’ll stop- too many possibilities!
Shoes? This is where I go a bit overboard- but actually, it’s necessary! You should own about 5 pairs per season. Example Summer:
Colorful flat sandals that go with bermudas or short dresses;
High-heel sandals for dressier times.
Low or high-heeled mules for in-between go to’s (they look good with anything).
And lastly, no need for pics here: flip-flops as dressy or casual as you need! Your choice!
You need at least one long dress – sleeveless is preferable so you can wear it dressed up or down by layering it.
You can add one cocktail dress- but these days a great pair of pants with dressy top can also do the trick – so I leave this to your discretion.
You should also have at least one fun shorter day dress that you can take from day to evening.
Lastly, a versatile kimono wanna-be for cooler evenings; as a cover up; worn as a blouse- it’s a passe-partout! (good for any occasion!) See my article on that here.
Since we’re headed for summer: Sunscreen, sunnies, and a pretty hat.
Lastly: The most important must have though…is Attitude. A feel-good in what I’m wearing attitude. Confidence is everything! If you feel good, you’ll look good. Flaunt your attitude. Stylist’s Orders.
You’re done…until next season!
#Confessionoftheday: My number one go-to- and the one I most highly recommend my Lovelies really is ATTITUDE.
