“How do you know what to put together?” “How do you accessorize?”
“Where do you shop for clothes?” “I don’t know what to do with a scarf.”
These are a few of the questions and comments I get from women. I am often asked to do more on how I put outfits together, so I will add this as a regular to my blog.
Feeling feminine and cozy in my networking outfit.
This outfit all started with a new wrap I bought at ZuZu Fashion Boutique in downtown Barrie.
I was going to a network meeting and knew the evening would be cool, so my new wrap was perfect!
I really like to have a core base of colour to elongate my body and make me look taller, and I achieved this with grey pants and a darker grey knit top.
Grey heeled booties add height and brings the eye of the beholder, up to my face and hair colour.
Since the outfit has an air of elegance, the new necklace consisting of a long silver leaf and a large pearl, also from ZuZu, compliments the grey and the elegant, classic style I was aiming for.
I added a dark, pewter, chunky bracelet to give interest and boldness to the overall look.
Here are steps I recommend:
- Know what colours best suit you and compliment your skin undertone.
- Bring out your personality in your outfits.
- Dress for the occasion whether it is networking, a date night, working in your office or a party.
- If you are 5’4 and under, then you definitely want to create a taller look.
- Choose shoes or boots that draw in your hair colour or pull the eye up to your face.
- Accessories are the icing on the cake to finish your look.
