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.
Nylons with Peep ToesJanuary 9th, 2013
I had a question asked recently: can I wear tights or colored nylons with peep toe shoes? The answer is yes, you can and it is a look I love! Both opaque tights and dark nylons look great with a cut out or peep toe shoe. Stay away from bold prints as that looks like there is too much going on with the open toe; save the trendy print tights for a fashion forward look with a pair of boots. Just remember to tuck under the seam at the toes so it doesn’t show.
New Years Eve StyleDecember 26th, 2012
Looking for a no fail outfit for your New Years Eve outing? Here is a simple to pull of party outfit that works for all body types. Start with a silky wrap dress in your shade of red. A wrap dress works for every figure and red is a statement making color, perfect for the festivities. Hoop earrings are a classic touch, go a little oversized to keep the glam factor intact. A clutch purse is essential, your eye-catching dress should not be drug down by a shoulder bag, you need to keep the floaty feel of the dress and pick a playful clutch. The final touch is the shoes, it’s a special night and it calls for unique footwear, so a metallic strappy heel would be perfect or a jeweled pump like these Gianni Bini pair you can find at Dillards. Remember, this night should be magical so make sure you dress for it.
