MUST DO THIS DURING FALL!
Creating the layered Look ( tip 5)
As the wind starts to blow and the flurries move in,it’s time to reevaluate your choices in wardrobe… put away those skimpy lil’ dresses and leave those PFs (SHOUTOUT! http://www.flocdesigns.com/) for home use or travel... it’s time to bust out those funky leggings and some serious shoe hardware. here’s a list of do’s for this fall/winter season!
funky tights (tip 2)
Do try to spice up your outfits with fun accessories. This is the season where accessories are key in keeping you warm and sexy! May it be some fun colored scarves, mittens or perhaps a great hat! But try to keep the rest of your look neutral so you don’t steal the thunder from your funloving accessory.. by this I mean – don’t wear your bright red mittens with your blue and white stripe hat and a rainbow colored scarf.
Do try some funky leggings or tights! Nothing punches up a boring wool dress or LBD like a great pair of tights.. maybe you’re in the mood for a racy lacy look, or perhaps you’re looking for statement piece like stripes or geometric shapes.. either way this is the season to make those legs shine!
Do try the shorts on leggings look.. I know it can be a bit retro 80’s for some of your tastes, but if you do it the right way, it’s a great way to play up your legs, and a great option compared to the usual ‘short wool skirt’ with tights look. Try pairing tweed shorts with tights and some motorcycle boots to create a military look, or create a casual boho look with jean shorts and tights..
military look ( tip3)
Do go for the military boot! Not only are they on trend this season, but they are comfortable to walk around and dance around in!! I’m not discounting the importance of a pair of black high heel boots when you want to express your sexy side, but there’s also something sexy in a tough rugged chick who doesn’t mind playing hard here and there.
Do layer it up! Don’t think that those soft tees and tanks from the summer should be completely useless this season, play it up with layers!.. maybe that racerback tank can go on top of that boring long sleeve top.. not to mention how nice it is to have that tank/shirt be the buffer between that scratchy wool sweater and your soft skin!! make sure you check out http://www.15nyc.com/ for some fun pieces that are soft and perfect for layering.. maybe a cute blue textured "bluebird" skirt or perhaps the "lil robin" top!
