Florals, pinstripes & more

Trends this year for SS 17’ are fun & fabulous! But sometimes it can be challenging to take runway and make it work for your real life! Learn some great styling tips on how to take this seasons trends and wear them everyday!



That classic pinstriped suit has really evolved into a great piece to pair with anything in your closet. If a dress, you could pair it with converse. Or a collared shirt, pair it with black skinny jeans & a sandal with a little fringe.


I just love this trend! Great to wear with platform shoes, a major shoe trend this season. Pair it with a crop top to go out with the girls. Or with a fun crew-neck shirt or pinstriped shirt for those office days.



A white collared shirt is a wardrobe must-have for every girl.

This wardrobe must-have can literally do anything and everything. Wear it under that LBD, with vintage denims & pumps, with a leather skirt, tuck it in, leave it out, tuck it half in & out. This wardrobe staple is perfect for whatever you need it to be. Wear it with vintage shorts & your favorite Converse or sandals. How will you style it for your looks?


If you are into that more casual, athletic look, you are in major luck. This Spring/Summer 17’ hot trends is that sporty, trendy look. Sports bra/ sheer top and oversized coat are all RTW trends you’ll see in non- sporty themed clothing. The fashion designers have done an excellent job of transforming these already hot trends into the sporty/athletic apparel. But  how will you wear it? Pair a shirt athletic top with a tank underneath & athletic bottoms. Finish this look with your favorite athletic shoes. This is perfect for those days full of errands.


Sequins, metallics & floral all have something in common. They are all great statement pieces. But don’t forget you can mix & match different metallics & floral together!


Sequins have a misconception for being a little too crazy to wear in real life.  Take a sequin jacket, leather LBD & designer pumps for your look to go out on date night. Or wear a fun sequin shoe with your favorite denims & t-shirt for a casual look. However, if you do not see yourself in sequins, maybe a happy compromise will be metallics.


Metallics are fun & fearless. Don’t be intimidated by their boldness. Go for it and wear a full dress. Or to ease yourself into this trend, take one-two metallic pieces and work it into your outfit. It is easy to choose one metallic piece and integrate it into your outfit! I love to wear a bomber metallic jacket, dark denims & metallic shoe.


The classic trend is floral. You will always see them during spring/ summer seasons. As years go on you’ll see the scale & design of the print change a bit. Grab a great floral jacket and pair it with vintage jeans, a fun graphic t-shirt & sandals. Or a fun floral dress & pair it with a denim jacket & Converse.

Denim is such a fabulous base to an outfit. You can easily find a neutral accessory, pop of color or pair it with a bold pattern. Look for a mid-length dress in denim and play up those legs with a neutral heel. Get casual with cropped, light washed denims and pair it with a medium wash shirt and just a little pop of contrast and color in the top underneath and shoes.

The Victorian trend is so fun and flirty this season. We love the gentle and vibrant colors, bold ruffles and detailed patterns that this trend brings.

Gentle & Bold Colors

Soft pastels and bold, bright colors add such a diverse element to your wardrobe. Just one piece from the Victorian trend will add the perfect pop to your look.

Pair a top of either option with a great pair of light wash, vintage denim jeans and an open toe pump. This is great for a Saturday brunch with your girls.

Bold Ruffles

These beautiful ruffles add the perfect amount of flare and elegance to a solid colored apparel item. The simplicity of this style adds just enough to your everyday outfit to make a fun and flirty impression.

Pair a bold ruffle top with a black, pencil leather skirt and a great pair of black booties. This look is perfect for the office. It is professional and trending forwarding.

Detailed patterns

These floral patterns in bold colors or pastels are perfect for your everyday looks, wither in office or out to lunch on the weekends, these patterns will add such an excellent element to your outfit.

Pair a floral dress with gladiator sandals and a great pop of color on your lips. Wear this after work or during work if you are in a creative environment, and on the weekends. This is so simple, but so easy and will provide a great fashion forward look to your everyday lifestyle.



off the shoulder


This off-the-shoulder trend is sleek, sexy and great for many occasions. We love how you can pair it with pants, jeans or wear it in a full dress.

Sleek & Sexy

Any time you are showing a little shoulder you have the element of sleek, sexy and classy. Less is more always, but especially when you show off the shoulders. It’s important in any pop or accent you have to keep it just that an accent. You don’t want to go overboard, because it loses its appeal.

Pair an off the shoulder top with some great cropped dress pants and a high heal. You want to show off the extravagance of the cut of the top and do not want to overwhelm the outfit. So keeping the other elements of this outfit simple, it accentuates the top perfectly. This look is perfect for date night.

Variety of Occasions

We love the versatility of this off the shoulder trend. Weddings, date night, out with the girls, this trend does it all.

For a wedding, pair an off the shoulder dress with a great sandal pump. Add a long earring, to add a fun and perfect accent to this look. You could also add some pretty bangle bracelets to the mix. No need to over accessorize this trend, as it already does so much in the cut of the fabric.

For a date night, pair a short off the shoulder dress with a great set of high pumps. Add a little fun and sexy feature with a pop of color to the lip.

For a girl’s night out, pick a fun color and add black to the mix. Pick a well-saturated green colored top and add a leather black skirt. Throw the hair up in a messy bun and add a really fun pop of color in earring and lip. Remember; keep it simple, this trend speaks well for its self.




The Spanish inspired trend is a perfect pop of color and pattern for your wardrobe this season. Out on the town, date night or to a wedding, this trend really does it all for you.

Pops of Colors

This trend is really doing it all for you with the well-saturated colors and textured look created through the fun patterns. Have fun with this one and add your own color to accessorize.

Pair a bright eye shadow, lip stick or nail color with a bold colored dress. Make sure that you are selecting the right color. For example, if your dress is a well-saturated purple and you want to pick another color to go with it, my suggestion is to look to the color wheel for advice.

color wheel


For a purple dress, I would recommend you choose a color from the opposing side of the color wheel, a complementary color. In this example I would choose a green or a yellow for the color pairing. You want to create a contrasted look with your colors, so it’s important to consult your color wheel when doing this.

Wither your style is Victorian, off the shoulders or that fabulous Spanish influence; you can make it work for your personal style. Don’t be afraid of colors and adding a fun complementary color to the mix.

Whether you are running late or a busy mom always on the go, we found a few great tips and tricks to help you achieve a great look in the morning in 10 minutes flat.



Grab your tinted moisturizer, mascara and go. We recommend the tinted moisturizer, because you are able to skip the skin care steps in your morning routine, therefore saving a few extra needed minutes. Apply with your fingers, and you’re all set. Don’t forget those eyes. Even on busy mornings, it’s important to bring a little pop to the eye. This can easily be done with a few swipes of your mascara. We recommend you curl your lashes first and then apply mascara.


Don’t forget the lips. Bring a great pop to the lips and really finish your look with a bright color. This bright color will also make your face look more awake and fresh. We recommend you apply a gloss after the lip color, to bring more depth to the lip. If you want to save extra time, you can do this step in your office or on the elevator on your way to the office.



Grab your dry shampoo, brush hair and throw a little hair spray in for volume. Throw that hair up in a messy bun; finish off with a little hair spray to set. To prep for your busy mornings, showering the night before might be the best step for you.


Choose something simple and accessorize it with a few fun pieces. The easiest go to for an outfit choice in a busy morning would be to choose a black dress, or suit with a white collared shirt. This outfit choice is super easy to accessorize in just a few seconds. Grab either a few light jewelry pieces or one heavy statement necklace. Either option will complete your look just fine. To save more time you could also prep the outfit the night before.


Working these quick and easy tips and tricks into your busy morning routine will save time and diminish some of that early morning stress.

Let’s face it after a while your beautiful suit in a variety of shades is getting dull. What do you do to spice things up a bit, with remaining in the lines of professionalism? Your brand image is a reflection of who you are and what you represent. It’s just as important as the content and layout of your resume.


So let’s get started! Why is this whole self-improvement of your appearance issue so important anyway? We believe that people who look better in their physical appearance feel better about themselves. According to an article written by Tim Hyland, from the University of Pennsylvania, he quotes, Sarwer, a Penn Associate professor of Psychology in Psychiatry and Surgery and the nation’s leading expert in physical appearance. “My response to that is the evidence is pretty strong that people who improve their appearance tend to feel better about themselves (” We believe in addition to this that as an individual the better you dress, the better you feel and therefore the more positive you become. This positive attitude becomes contagious throughout your work environment. Therefore increasing energy and productivity in the company.



First, look to what you have already. You likely have a variety of suits in color and possibility cut. Take one piece from the suit and pair it with something NEW!

Second, look to what you do not have. Do you need to purchase maybe a bright colored necklace or jacket to add that extra piece of interest or flare to your look? Remember, grabbing that extra piece is easy to do. It’s just one piece that will make a difference. (For example: Take your black suit, break it up and purchase a bright skirt, wear it with a white colored shirt and a fun pair of pumps. You are all set to go and all you did was integrate a NEW skirt to change your look. You can also ditch the black suit jacket and swap it for a black trench coat.)



Third, get personal with your wardrobe. Maybe you need to begin again. Although this may seem a bit scary, I promise it is easier than you think. If you have been sick of the dull, boarding cut and colors you are consistently wearing, create a NEW plan of what you want to do. What is your personal brand image? How are you representing your company/yourself at once? This question will help determine how you approach purging and filling your wardrobe. Maybe gathering bold patterns and solid bright colors in apparel pieces and or accessories will help you get there. Remember it does not have to be complicated. When re-working your wardrobe, it is all about you and your lifestyle. (For example: Find a bold pattern in a few dresses and then pair with a bright colored jacket or accessory piece. Remember, you can always integrate an existing suit jacket with a bold pattern and a bright accessory.)



Fourth, start off small. If you have been dressing mono-chromatically for a long time, re-working bold patterns and bright colors into your wardrobe all at once may be a bit overwhelming. Instead of making this change all at once, choose small items over a period of time. Set a goal for yourself on items you want to eventually replace. (For example: Choose maybe a few solid colored dresses and pair with a neutral suit jacket. Another tip would be, taking your neutral suit, add a solid colored top and a corresponding colorful necklace. These small steps will help you grow into the personal style goals you have set for yourself.)




Remember, how you brand your style image is just as important as how you brand your image on your resume. First look to what you already have, second, look to what you do not, third, get personal and fourth make cuts that will help you achieve your goals.

We took another sneak peak into our Fashion Stylist’s wardrobe and found some goodies. She just returned from a shopping trip for a client and had to show these items off. All of these pieces are such great elements to have as a part of your collection too.



This particular piece  is literally such an art piece. I love how your eye wonders around for such a long time finding great angles and shapes. That is such a great example of true art. This piece is perfect for anything you might have in your closet right now. That special occasion dress, that business suit, that weekend over-sized sweater, dark denims and knee high boots.



Michael Kors you have done it again. We are loving the simplicity in design and yet the great elegance it brings. Perfect to wear to work, with a great jacket over it and maybe a few simple bangles and diamond earrings.  This dress really does most of the work for you.



Great pop of style here! We love all the drama these shoes can bring to any outfit. Great pop of color to any outfit. I really love it with a black dress and a black sweater and some fun jewelry. Let these shoes stand alone, and face forward to your day ahead. I would love a pop of red lip to finish this look off.


A new season calls for new makeup, new wardrobe and new hair. Maybe you are thinking you want to try something new this season? Check out three of our favorite hair color trends for this season and see which one fits you best as you fall fashion forward.


We're going to give the try-hard ombré trend from a few years back the benefit of the doubt and assume it meant to look more like January Jones' cool, casual, multi-tonal color, but lost the plot somewhere along the way. Good news is, this is way easier—add lowlights to the roots and subtle highlights to the ends or just start spacing out your touch-up appointments and embracing regrowth.

So, you don’t have a lot of time or money in the bank to get those needed hair touch ups? That’s okay, because a little outgrowth goes a long way. It is actually trending right now to go a little more natural with your color. I am not suggesting to go too far with this. But it is okay to let it grow out just a little more than what you are used to.


Hair looks polished and even—but still full of dimension—when it has tons of thin highlights in the subtlest shade level brighter weaved throughout. Olivia Palermo serves as the ultimate reference to take to your stylist.

Another really great hair color trend this Fall 15 season is a well polished and even highlights. The applications of several small highlights in a variety of shade levels creates a really great dimension and a fuller look. This look is really natural, but creates a great amount of depth to the overall color.


The portmanteau color of summer's midpoint isn't going anywhere come fall. Cara Delevingne blends light brown with caramel and buttery shades in such a way that it'd be impossible to take a hard stance in the brunette versus blonde debate.

Okay, the term in the hair world of, “bronde”, seems to be trending pretty heave right now. So what is, “bronde” anyways? It is literally the combination of both blonde and brown. Meaning that your stylist will be taking lighter browns, with some caramels, buttery shades in a combination that makes it hard to distinguish between blonde and brown. It’s a little bit of a mind game,, but overall a really fun and fresh trend.
