Fashion Do: Sequin Jackets and Blazers


As I know I've said a million times on this blog, I love sequins! I love them on shoes, shirts, skirts, handbags...basically anwhere they come! A trend I've been seeing lately on lots of celebs is the sequined jacket or blazer (above: Hayden Panettiere, Whitney Port, Kim Kardashian, Lauren Conrad). The trick to pulling of the sequin jacket is to not overdo it since it is such a statement piece. A white tank or t-shirt and a pair of jeans works great. Whatever you do, don't overdo it on the sequins though...one sequined piece is plenty for an outfit! Here are a few options to choose from: Arden B sequin shimmer blazer for $88; Bebe all over sequin blazer for $159; Darling contrast trim sequin jacket for $95.93 available on www.asos.com; Juicy Couture 3/4 sleeve sequin crop jacket for $168 available on www.shopbop.com; Vila loose tailored sequin jacket for $87.21 available on www.asos.com; Silence & Noise sequin blazer for $98 available at Urban Outfitters; Victoria's Secret sequin blazer for $159; Vero Moda shoulder pad sequin jacket for $78.49 available on www.asos.com.

Styling Your Autumn/Winter Apparel and Accessories for Evening

Below are three evening looks using your twenty autumn/winter clothing items and accessories. For these looks, I have provided two alternatives--one for women my age and another for women a tad older.

Evening Look No. 1

This outfit is perfect for a dinner date with your special someone. Both outfits pictured above feature your age-appropriate going out top. For the older look (pictured second), place your blazer over your going out top, button it, and cinch it at your waist with your skinny belt for an extra-polished look.

Evening Look No. 2

This evening look is great for a cocktail party. The only difference between the younger version pictured first and the older version pictured second is the choice of shoe, with the older version substituting your pumps for your boots, for a more classic look.

Evening Look No. 3

This outfit is the most casual of all of the evening looks and is best suited for a night out on the town! The younger version pictured on the left incorporates your tall boots -- go ahead and tuck those jeans into your boots for a more funky look. The older version pictured on the right swaps out your tall boots for your pumps and features your age-appropriate going out top.

Styling Your Autumn/Winter Apparel and Accessories for the Weekend

Below are three casual outfits for your weekend endeavors again using your twenty autumn/winter clothing items and accessories.

Weekend Look No. 1

This outfit is great for a weekend outing. If you feel comfortable doing so, go ahead and tuck your jeans into your tall boots. Give it a try regardless of your age and regardless of whether you have opted to purchase a pair of heeled tall boots or a pair of flat tall boots. If you don't feel comfortable tucking your jeans into the boots, wear your boots underneath your jeans.

Weekend Look No. 2

This weekend look is great for running errands because it is comfortable but pulled together.
Weekend Look No. 3
This weekend look is probably the least casual of the three, so it is probably best suited for a weekend lunch with the girls. If your oversized cardigan already has a tie-waist, skip the skinny belt. Otherwise, go ahead and put the skinny belt on at your waist over your oversized cardigan.

Styling Your Autumn/Winter Apparel and Accessories for Work

Now that you have the ten clothing items and ten accessories that you need for the fall and winter months, it is time to get styling! Below are three work-appropriate outfits. Keep in mind that there are many other outfits that can be created using these items, so get creative!

Work Look No. 1

This look is best suited fir when you want to look polished and sophisticated for a big client meeting, for court, or otherwise. Place your blazer over your LBD, button it, and cinch your waist with your skinny belt. The result is immediate sophistication.

Work Look No. 2

This work look is a bit more casual, but still very polished and appropriate for a day at the office. Button up your white blouse and tuck it into your pencil skirt. Pull your ladylike sweater on over your white blouse. If your ladylike sweater is a cardigan consider leaving it unbuttoned and cinching it with your skinny belt, or just leaving it buttoned without the belt. Your statement necklace should go on under your blouse and sweater and should just peak out.

Work Look No. 3

You have a few options with this look as far as your feminine long-sleeve blouse goes. You can either wear it flowing over your trousers if the cut of the blouse is such that it looks good when it is not tucked in and it is an appropriate length (like this DVF blouse). Or, if you don't like the way it looks untucked, tuck it into your trousers and run your skinny belt through the belt loops of your trousers. The boots should go under your trousers. If you have opted for a pair of flat tall boots instead of boots with a heel, swap out the boots altogether and wear your pumps.

Ten Must-Have Autumn/Winter Accessories

Below is a list of ten accessories that every woman should have in her close for the fall and winter months. In my next few posts, I will suggest styling options for how to mix and match these accessories with the ten apparel items for work, weekend, and evening.

Item 1: Tote
Every woman needs a great tote bag that is big enough to carry everything she needs for work and on the weekend. A personally prefer leather due to its durability but there are also some nice coated canvas bags out there. Because you will be using this bag so frequently and it will inevitably be experiencing quite a bit of wear and tear, it is a definite SPLURGE item. Also, since you will be wearing the bag with multiple outfits, it is best to purchase it in a neutral color. While most women prefer black, I love grey because it easily transitions into the springtime. The tote pictured above is from Aldo and retails for around $24.

Item 2: Spanx
Spanx are an accessory MUST for any woman with a problem area. They come in all different forms to tackle your problem-area, whether it is your butt, your hips, or your waist. But be sure to get the right size or else you will be uncomfortable the entire time you have them on! You can find Spanx in most department stores and they retail for around $40.

Item 3: Cashmere Scarf
It is bad enough to have to deal with the cold weather and grey skies in the C-bus, so why not at least SPLURGE on an uber-soft luxurious cashmere scarf to snuggle up in while battling the bitter cold?! Your scarf should be a reflection of your personal style. Don't be afraid to experiment with color, texture, and patterns! The cashmere scarf above is by Johnstons and retails for around $175.

Item 4: Embellished Flat
For the longest time I steered clear of flats because I am only 5'2". I was convinced that I had to wear heels in order to make my legs look longer. It wasn't until the last few years that I finally gave flats a try and started to realize that flats paired with an above-the-knee skirt on a petite woman actually work. Your flats should also be a reflection of your personal style and should be stylish enough to wear to work, but comfortable enough to wear on the weekend as a sneaker-alternative. If you are really look for comfort, check out the flats by Cole Haan that have Nike Air technology built in! The pair above are by Kelsi Dagger and retail for around $100.

Item 5: Statement Necklace
Again, you really have a lot of leeway in choosing a statement necklace that suits your personal style, whether it is completely over-the-top with sequins, studs, and crystals, or is a bit more subdued like the necklace above by French Connection for around $46. The statement necklace is NOT a splurge item, but rather is something that is on-trend for the season, and will likely be replaced the following season.

Item 6: Tall Boot
Tall boots that come to just below your knee are an absolute essential for any woman residing in the Midwest. This is a definite SPLURGE item because they are so versatile. If you get the right pair, you can wear them to work on casual Friday, on the weekend, and even out at night. The pair above is by Jessica Simpson and retails for around $199. I realize that they are geared somewhat towards the younger woman, so for the older woman I would suggest a flat riding boot that also comes to just below your knee. Below is an example by Ciao Bella that retails for around $149:

Be sure to stick with a neutral color like black, grey, or brown.

Item 7: Tights
It is time to swap out those pantyhose ladies and purchase a pair of tights. Tights are a much more up-to-date option for keeping you legs warm in the autumn and winter months. For the younger ladies, I would recommend getting a pair of black tights with a subtle pattern like the pair above by J. Crew for about $23. If you are a bit older, nix the pattern and stick with a black or nude colored opaque that resembles pantyhose.

Item 8: Work-Appropriate Pump
Every woman truly needs a pair of beautiful yet comfortable pumps that are versatile enough to wear to the office and out at night. The pair pictured above by Badgley Mischka for about $195 are a nice neutral shade but have some adorable ruffles that add interest to the shoe. If this pair is a bit too much for you, consider a more classic peep-toe style. Texture on the shoe like a subtle croc print is another way to add interest to the shoe. Because you will be wearing the pumps frequently make sure the shoes are made well. This is another SPLURGE item. Whatever pump you choose make sure that it suits your personal style and that it is appropriate for work.

Item 9: Skinny Belt
One of the easiest ways to define your waistline, while at the same time making your outfit appear immediately more polished is to cinch your waist with a belt. The skinny style is universally flattering. The skinny belt above from Forever 21 retails for around $6.80.

Item 10: Clutch
Every woman needs a clutch to take with her for evening events. Your daytime bag, whether it is a tote, a hobo, or something else simply should not be on your arm during the evening! In fact, carrying a daytime bag with an evening outfit is the quickest way to throw off the polished evening look that you are going for. When choosing handbags, it is oftentimes best to go with a neutral, but grey, white, black, and brown can be somewhat boring for the evening. That is why I would recommend purchasing a clutch in a metallic, which can also be used as a neutral. If you wear mostly silver jewelry, purchasing a clutch in the silver or pewter color family would be best; if you wear mostly gold jewelry, purchasing a clutch in the gold or copper color family would be best. The clutch above is by Tory Burch and retails for around $315.

Ten Must-Have Autumn/Winter Clothing Items

Recently, I have received some requests to post more entries about fashion styling and not just about sales and trends. I have steered clear of this in the past primarily because I really don't think that I have any styling tricks that are unique or that I will be able to offer you advice that you really couldn't find elsewhere. Rather, everything that I know has simply been picked up from others by reading fashion magazines and blogs! That being said, I will go ahead and share with you what I know beginning with the ten wardrobe basics that I believe you need in your closet for autumn/winter. After I have spelled out the basics, I will add the ten accessories for autumn/winter and then I will show you how to style these twenty different items for work, weekend, and evening. Finally, I have also recently received a few requests to include posts geared towards older women. I recognize that the majority of my posts are geared towards women my own age. That being said, this list of twenty clothing items and accessories applies to ALL age ranges. There are two instances where I will substitute more age-appropriate alternatives. Before I get started, there are a few rules of the modern fashion world that every woman should know:

RULE 1: You CAN wear black and brown together and you CAN wear black and navy together. Black, all shades of brown, all shades of gray, all shades of white, military green, and some metallics are considered to be NEUTRAL colors. They can be worn with any other neutral color or non-neutral color.

RULE 2: You CAN mix patterns. The key is to mix patterns that have a similar color-scheme.

RULE 3: High price-tags many times DO mean better quality and better fit. Many women feel bad about splurging on apparel and will frequently substitute a cheaper imitation for the real thing. The rule of thumb to follow when deciding whether an item is really worth the money is to consider how frequently you will be wearing the item and whether it is simply a trendy piece now but will be out of style by the following year.

RULE 4: When you choose items of clothing, always be conscious of your body shape. That being said, while it is always good to consider your body type do NOT hide the parts of your body that you don't like behind baggy clothes. Embrace what you've got and work it!

With those rules out of the way, here is the list of the ten items of apparel that I believe you should have in your closet for the autumn/winter. With these items and the ten accessories that I will list in my next post, you will be able to create TONS of different outfits.

Item 1: Little Black Dress
You've heard it time and time again, but the LBD is truly a wardrobe essential. This is an item to SPLURGE on to ensure that you have the best fabric and fit for your body and lifestyle. If you are short, pick a dress that is right above the knee or mid-knee. If you are tall, pick a dress that is mid-knee or just below the knee. If you have wide hips, an a-line cut is always flattering, as is a tulip skirt. Also, if you are pear-shaped, a boxier shoulder with sleeves as opposed to a sleeveless dress will help to balance the proportions. Steer clear of jersey or other stretchy fabrics if you have problem areas because it will make the dress cling. The LBD above is from Banana Republic (one of my favorite places to buy LBDs) and retails for around $132.

Item 2: Ladylike Sweater
Business women no longer need to wear blazers to work. Rather, a nice ladylike sweater or cardigan can easily double as your work blazer. And don't be afraid to experiment with color, pattern, and embellishments. The orange embellished cardigan above is by Milly and retails for around $225.

Item 3: White Button-Down Blouse
You probably already have a white button-down blouse in your closet and, if so, kudos to you! It has been an essential item for women for years now and continues to be. If you are older and have short hair, feel free to pop that collar for an added bit of drama. (It is a bit harder for younger women to pull that look off.) Also, pick a blouse that suits your personal style. The one pictured above from American Eagle for around $25 is quite plain, but there are plenty around that have ruffles and even have tuxedo-inspired details. Be sure to choose a blouse that suits your personal style.

Item 4: Going Out Top
Every woman needs a top in her wardrobe that screams "look at me" and that makes her feel confident and sexy when she puts it on. This is your going out top. I chose a sequined tank from Wet Seal above for around $26 because it is fun and on-trend this season. This choice is admittedly geared towards a younger woman. For an older woman, your going out top should be a more conservative tunic with some embellishment. Below is a great example by Day Birger et Mikkelsen retailing around $166:

Your going out top should NOT be a splurge item. Rather, it should be an on-trend piece that you picked up simply for the season. The idea is FUN not quality. Next season you will find another going out top that makes you feel just as sexy!

Item 5: Dark-rinse Straight-Legged or Boot-Cut Jeans
Finding the perfect pair of jeans for a woman is oftentimes a futile act. But fear not, there are a few tricks that will help you when deciding on purchasing a pair of jeans. First of all, choose a pair that is a dark-rinse without fading or embellishments. Also, stick to a straight-leg, or if you are hippy, go with a boot-cut. Steer clear of the skinny jean, the bell-bottom, the low-rise, the high-waist, or any other trends that are out there right now. If you have a large bottom, it is essential that you choose a pair with pockets, but that the pockets sit flush against your bum. If you are lacking in the booty-department, choose a pair with button flap pockets on the back -- this will give the illusion that your butt is fuller. This is another SPLURGE item. Spend the money to get the jeans that truly look the best on you and if they just don't quite look perfect off of the rack get them TAILORED to fit you. I don't think this needs to be said (hopefully), but please no flood pants...your jeans and for that matter all of your pants should come right to the floor when you have heels on. The jeans pictured above are by Lucky Brand and retail for around $99.

Item 6: Trousers
Trousers are another SPLURGE item simply because getting the right fit is imperative. Generally, the same rules apply to trousers as to jeans. Don't be afraid to invest in tailoring. Make sure you choose a neutral color. Also, be wary of the fabric that you choose. If you are hippy, don't choose a fabric that clings to your problem areas. Also, a wider waistband oftentimes camouflages a myriad of sins. The pair above is from Old Navy and retails for around $33.

Item 7: Feminine Long-Sleeve Blouse
A long-sleeve blouse is a great layering piece for the fall and winter. Like the ladylike sweater, this is a piece that need not be a neutral, so don't be afraid to experiment with color and pattern. The blouse above is by Diane Von Furstenberg and retails for around $350.

Item 8: Pencil Skirt
Every woman needs a pencil skirt regardless of her body type. The key is to find the pencil skirt with the right cut, fabric, and length. Generally, the same rules apply to picking out a pencil skirt as to picking out your LBD. If you are shorter, you can get a shorter skirt. If you are taller, go longer. If you are pear-shaped be mindful of stretchy fabrics. Stick with a neutral color. The pencil skirt above is from J. Crew and retails for around $118.

Item 9: Fitted Blazer
If you have a larger chest you probably struggle with finding a great blazer. This is where tailoring is key. Remember that many retailers offer free tailoring if you purchase a blazer from them (Nordstrom, Banana Republic, etc.). While the boyfriend style blazer is in style right now, that doesn't mean that the fitted blazer has gone out of style. To the contrary, it is a classic and will forever remain a wardrobe staple. This item is particularly KEY for an older woman because a fitted blazer helps to define your waistline. This is a definite SPLURGE item. The wool-blend blazer above is by Steven Alan and retails for around $385.

Item 10: Oversized Cardigan
Last but not least, is the oversized cardigan. While I chose the striped shawl-collar cardigan above by American Eagle that retails for around $45, you really have a lot of leeway in choosing an oversized cardigan that suits your personal style. Many oversized cardigans don't have buttons, while others tie at the waist. Your oversized cardigan should look put together enough to wear to the office on casual Friday but it should be comfortable enough to wear on the weekend as a sweatshirt-alternative.

Fashion Do: Structured Solid-Color Sheath Dresses


Every girl needs at least one solid-color fitted sheath dress in her closet! I probably have over ten in all different colors simply because they are so versatile. The great thing about these dresses is that you can wear them to work with basic accessories or dress them up for a night out (see above: Cameron Diaz, Diane Kruger, Hayden Panettiere, Olivia Wilde). If you are in the market for a structured sheath, I would recommend one that comes to your knees, or a little above your knees if you are petite like Hayden Panettiere. I particuarly like the one worn by Hayden above because of the tulip skirt, which is flattering for girls like myself with larger hips. Below are some options to choose from: Maggy London sheath dress for $158 available on www.macys.com; Shoshanna scoopneck sheath dress for $310 available on www.shopbop.com; Banana Republic sheath dress on sale for $99.99; Donna Morgan plaid sheath dress for $158 available on www.nordstrom.com (the plaid is so large that it acts as a solid); Ann Taylor Loft scoopneck sheath dress for $69.50; Black Halo "Francine" sheath dress on sale for $233.90; Maggy London ruffle trim ponte knit sheath dress for $98 available on www.nordstrom.com; Banana Republic wool-blend textured sheath dress for $152.
