How to try a trend without becoming a fashion victim

Do you aspire to be trendier, but are you scared of becoming fashion road-kill? Would you like to inject your wardrobe with more modernity, but worry that you will be wasting your money on purchases that are only relevant for a short period of time?? If so, here’s a fashion trick to get you the results you want without the downsides that you don’t.

Rather than focusing on trends that have to do with the shape of garments – a tricky venture at best anyways – focus instead on trends that have to do with how you pair garments and create outfits. Not clear on what I am referring to? Allow me to explain…

   vs.  

For example, skip high-low hems on tops and dresses and, instead, mix patterns. How come?? When high-low hems are “over,” those tops and dresses will be useless. But, if you buy patterns that you like, when mixing them is no longer at the height of style, you can still enjoy them paired with solids.

    vs.   

Need another scenario? Baggy, pajama and track-inspired pants can be found in some form or another at most major retailers this spring. But, if you’re wary of that sort of commitment, then why not try monochromatic dressing instead? Select your favorite color, collect a variety of garments in that particular hue and create an outfit from the array of shades. Since you’re a fan of this color, you can still enjoy the pieces separately when monochromatic dressing is “out.”

With these guidelines in mind, feel free to tackle trends selectively and upgrade your style like a pro, without becoming a fashion victim or draining your wallet. Now that’s a win-win if ever I did see one!

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

October 22, 2020

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Are You Sleeping Well?

October 14, 2020

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.

Bodywear

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
