Wearing Radiant Orchid

Pantone’s color of the year has already sprung mixed feelings on the color choice. Ironically this hue falls directly opposite last year’s color, Emerald (which was very popular), on the color wheel.

Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director, describes the color as  “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

Still, there are many ways to incorporate this trend to your style in tasteful ways. Here are some ideas for those of you who love, kinda sorta like, or dislike the trending color.

If you LOVE:

Commit to a full piece- a blouse, skirt, or dress. A bold color like this looks best with neutral colors or basic prints.

If you’re KINDA SORTA:

Just add a touch of Radiant Orchid using accessorizes. Paint your nails, throw on a scarf, add a necklace or ring. Or, work with colors around that hue- lavender, powder pink, etc.

If you HATE:

Nothing.

If this color is just not rocking your world, don’t do it! Fashion is fun, wear what makes you feel great, comfortable, and true to your personal style, not just because “everyone else is doing it.” 🙂

How To: Work Your Jeans

Here are two easy ways you can get a couple different looks using the same outfit. The key is a great pair of jeans (see my favorite brand below) and a chic pair of booties that coordinate well with many tops. I find that cognac and taupe are the most versatile colors in terms of shoes and bag colors.

The first look is simple, wear a blouse or tee worn out over your denims. Throw on the booties, and add a collar statement necklace. Simple and Chic.

The second look- tuck your blouse inside your jeans, either all around or just the front. Roll up the cuffs just above your shoes. Add a skinny belt that matches or compliments your booties. Since you are accessorizing the look with the belt, stick with earrings and forgo a statement necklace (unless its dainty).

My favorite brand of jeans is PAIGE. Their quality material is long-lasting and soft. It holds it’s shape throughout the day and feels so comfortable on. Check out their styles on www.paigeusa.com

For the Men: Casual to Dressy

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day…

Boyfriend Material.jpg

…here are some quick tips to take your casual look to dressy with a simple switch of a shoe and tie.

For a nice casual look: pick a solid sweater that can layer over a button up with some kind of print. Wear a shoe that compliments a neutral color in your printed top.

To dress it up: Switch out the shoes for a dressier pair, and add a tie to the printed top- but tucked behind the sweater. If your overall look has more muted colors, try adding a subtle pop of color with the tie. Simple and quick.

Enjoy and Happy Valentines Day!

Winter 2 Spring

Winter and chill has not left us yet, but spring will still be on its way. A great way to begin your wardrobe transition is mixing chunky sweaters with florals and patterned skirts. Wear with warm leggings and boots, or some high wedges and heels for a fancier look.
