There is much debate about fashion and many opinions out there. Fashion trends come and go and opinions change on what is acceptable and what is not. So are you in the know? Check below for the answers for some of the most asked questions we receive.
Can you wear metallic during the day?
Yes, a metallic is great for day or night. The trick is not over doing it when wearing it as a daytime look. For daytime pair a great metallic peep-toe or sandals with trousers or wide legged jeans, and grab a great bag, like a metallic snake-skin one. It is a chic option for a handbag, plus it adds texture to an outfit.
Do your shoes and bag have to match?
No, they don’t have to match. In fact, if they don’t, it adds even more interest to your outfit. A neutral outfit looks great with a bright colored shoe and a more neutral bag. If in doubt keep the shoe and bag within the same color palette as your outfit.
Can you mix patterns and textures?
Yes, and you should! A silk blouse looks great with a tweed jacket; and a pin dot or floral shirt can look great with a pin stripe pant. Again, this is a great way to add dimension to your outfit. Just remember when mixing patterns to find a mutual color in both patterns to unify the look.
Can you wear white after Labor Day?
Yes, you can wear white in the fall and winter. Just keep the fabrics heavier for an appropriate cooler weather vibe. And make sure to keep the white looking white, which can be difficult with the messy weather we can have in certain parts of the country. For an updated look, try pairing a bright white shirt with an off-white jacket or winter white pants with your favorite sweater. Make the outfit “pop” with a colored accessory.
Should you match your eye makeup to your outfits?
No, wear eye makeup that accents your eye color and complexion. This is a good way to update your look. You want your eyes to look bright and alive so be sure to wear eye colors that compliment them and your skin tone. Find out your colors with a Color Analysis so you can get it right.
