Here it is ladies!  The Dulcet Style Fall Shoe Guide, just for you and your shopping pleasure.  These are the five basics to have in your closet this fall.  They are versatile, a couple are classic and one is very trendy.  But if you are able to incorporate all five in your wardrobe routine you will look tres chic.

Platform Pumps ~ Perfect for work or a night out.  Look for interesting textures and colors.  Or having a pair in a basic brown or black can take you miles.  And just a suggestion, nude is really big this season, and a way to make your legs look a mile long!

Laced Ankle Boots ~ Boots are still ultra-popular and we are glad they are since they are so versatile, and the laced up varieties give off a funky vibe that can be worn casual or dressy!

Embellished Flats ~ These oh so comfortable shoes are still popular this season.  You’ll want to throw these shoes on when you’re running errands or sitting at your kid’s sports event.  Plus they always look good at the office!

Peep Toe Booties ~ Okay, these are more on the trendy side, so erring on the practical side, we suggest not spending a fortune on these since they are not a classic piece you will be wearing forever.  However, if you want to look “in the know” stylish, you’ll want a pair of these.  They will immediately update your look to a very current chic look.

Knee High Boots ~ These are classic so invest in a quality pair in a neutral that you can wear with your skirts, dresses and jeans.  These amazing boots can be worn to work then transition perfectly to a night out with your loved one.

Have fun shopping!

Everyone Needs a Menswear JacketOctober 9th, 2011

Boyfriend JacketWhy?  Because it can transform an outfit into a completely different look.  It is a fabulous transitional piece that should be hanging in your closet and I guarantee you will wear it all the time.

Now the menswear jacket has a masculine feel with a slightly feminine cut.  Think of the jackets you would find your husband, boyfriend, or dad wearing.  Those are the inspirations designers have pulled on to create these chic jackets for us women.

The Tuxedo Jacket is a popular version.  It has a dressier vibe so it is great for work or more formal events.  Pair it with trousers, suit pants or an A-line skirt.  It even looks great over a cocktail dress.  It makes your strappy or summer time dresses transition into the colder months.

Some jackets will have more feminine details than others.  Seaming, pleating, piping and bold shoulders can be found on jackets to create a unique look.  A classic menswear jacket can be dressed up or dressed down, so keep it available for not only your professional capsule but include for your everyday chic look.

The Boyfriend Jacket has endless possibilities.  This is one menswear jacket you can truly dress down with a pair of jeans, but still keep it business-like with a pair of trousers and stacked loafers . They come in a variety of fabrics from tweed to cotton to silk.  One of my favorite looks with a boyfriend jacket is with a button down underneath and the cuffs of the shirt turned up and over the ends of the jacket sleeves.

So whether you choose to wear your menswear jacket with a formal skirt, a pair of pants or your favorite comfy jeans, it is an updated chic look to show off.  I guarantee you will wear your jacket all the time because this piece simply has endless possibilities!

Do I Have to Wear Navy Shoes with Navy Trousers?September 28th, 2011

“I just purchased a pair of navy blue trousers but am struggling with what color shoes to wear with them.  Do I have to wear navy shoes?”

This is a great question.  Of course you don’t have to stick to the “old” rules of wearing navy shoes with navy pants.  We suggest a basic nude or metallic, like the copper one we have pictured, available at Nordstroms.  You can also wear a brown shoe if your outfit is more “warm” in color or a black shoe if the overall tone is “cool”.  Navy is a neutral color so if you are on the bold side you can even dare to wear a fun bright colored shoe.

Mad for PlaidSeptember 15th, 2011

ScarfWant to try a different look this season?  Try plaid!  If you are afraid of looking like a lumberjack, don’t be.  There are many ways to incorporate this look into your current wardrobe.  Try a plaid tote for work, or a plaid wool scarf with your favorite cardigan.  You don’t have to have a bold fashion personality to wear a plaid shirt, this is a great look to wear with boyfriend jeans and warm boots…. perfect for this cooler season.  So, get out there and rock some plaid!

Diamonds Really Are a Girl’s Best FriendJune 15th, 2011

Round Cut Diamond

I always have conversations with my clients about what clothing and accessories are worth investing your money in and what items can be bought a little cheaper.  I always say, classic pieces are one of the areas you want to spend a little extra.  One of my favorite jewelry pieces fits in the classic category, plus can be a valuable heirloom that is passed down through the generations.   It is diamond stud earrings.

When choosing your earrings first decide on what shape you’d like.  You’d be surprised at how many choices there are; round, princess, oval, trillian and many more.  My favorite pair at the moment is a trillian pair (it’s a pretty triangle shape).  I wear them all the time.

Next you want to think about the size.  Now keep in mind that since you will be spending good money on this, make sure they are a nice size for both day and night so you can get the most wearings and value out of them.  If they are too big, they may not be appropriate for the office.

Finally there are the three c’s to consider – cut, clarity and color.  These three will be a big part in the determination of the cost of your earrings, so decide on a price point you are comfortable with before shopping and adjust the three c’s so it will work within your budget.

Diamonds will never go out of style ~ so enjoy a little splurge!
