Scarves aren’t just for winter. Yes, my husband has finally realized this. His crazy looks at me in the dead of summer wearing a scarf are beginning to fade now. He knows (since I have told him) that scarves are an accessory, not just for warmth. But we do need to keep cool, so a lightweight scarf is a necessity this time of year. A long, light cotton or silk scarf is the perfect choice. There are endless ways to wrap a scarf, the My Stylist members have received two complete video how-to’s on wrapping a scarf of about a dozen different ways! But don’t worry too much about wrapping it just right, a simple way to wear it is wrapped once around your neck with the ends dangling down. You really can’t wrap a scarf wrong, so do what is comfortable to you.

To Go Bare-Legged or not to Go Bare-Legged, That is the QuestionMarch 23rd, 2013
A question I am asked often is it okay to always go bare-legged? Well, speaking as a wardrobe stylist, it is more fashionable to go sans nylons. But when I am consulting professional women, I tell them that it depends on their particular industry and office atmosphere. Lets’ talk about this – it is modern to show a bare leg or to wear tights. Nylons are a little passé. So when you have the choice of what you can wear, choose tights or nothing at all. But this is not always acceptable in the work place since both those choices have a more casual vibe to them. A really conservative profession such as a lawyer, or accountant should consider wearing a nude or sheer black nylon with their work wardrobe. It is simply a classier look that needs to be presented to your clients. But most industries are not that buttoned up, so you can forget the pantyhose. Actually there are signs nylons may even be coming back in vogue since Kate Middleton has been seen sporting nylons with her dresses, we’ll see. So on to our next dilemma, since we can’t camouflage our legs with nylons, how do we present a nice bare-legged look when our legs may not be so perfect? An easy fix is to spray our legs with Sally Hansen Air Brushed Legs for a polished sun-kissed look.
A Flawless FaceMarch 11th, 2013
Looking for flawless coverage for your face without looking too heavy? Then think about tinted moisturizer followed by a concealer to create a perfect complexion. I think tinted moisturizer is the best go-to makeup product for spring and summer; it gives you a nice dewy and natural appearance. I use DNI’s Sheer-Tinted Moisturizer or DNI’s BB Cream, just contact us to order either of these. BB Cream will moisturize, brighten, nourish and protect skin and is the latest in tinted moisturizers. When you need more coverage in some areas, place a quality concealer over the moisturizer for an unblemished look. Make sure you layer the concealer on top so you keep it where it needs to stay. If needed, you can think lightly powder to set all your makeup in place.
Easy French ManicureFebruary 27th, 2013
Sally HansenIt takes time to maintain a manicure, especially if you care for your nails yourself. So take a break from polishing and try this smart and easy way to keep your nails looking fabulous in a flash. First make sure your bare nails look healthy by massaging cuticle oil or vitamin E oil over your cuticles and nails. Wipe the excess oil from your hands and run a white nail pencil under the rims of your nails. It fakes a french manicure and makes your nails look clean and finished. All it takes is 5 minutes!

Test Your Knowledge With Our Fashion QuizSeptember 7th, 2012
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.
