Seasonal fashion launches include specific colors and sometimes new trends. Use this to your advantage. Buy what you love and what suits you while it is available. If a trend appeals to you, embrace it. For the most part, I ignore trends, but I do look for my best colors in winter and late summer. Fashion is fleeting; Style is timeless.
You may have met with frustration when looking for a new coat in October, only to find the remaining selection very sparse. Colors are also released in seasons, for example, clear blue-reds. If you look for a red blazer in the springtime, you will usually come home empty-handed.
I’ve learned to search for red items when the holiday/resort collections launch in late October. If you wear a lot of golden-hued browns, warm greens, orange-reds, and camel colors, you will find a much better selection when the fall collections launch in July. Delicate spring colors and pastels may start to show up in stores as early as January.
A collection – wardrobe – closet, whatever you wish to call it, should include mostly high-quality solid color pieces that flatter your shape, your coloring, and your taste. Buy what you love, so that you will always have something to wear that reflects your personality. If the item is appropriate for the event and the weather, you will always look your best when you wear it.
Some of my classic accessories and handbags have been in my collection for years, if not decades. I still get compliments and always feel well-dressed each time I wear them.
I don’t feel dressed without a watch, earrings, and a ring. Depending on the event, I may also layer necklaces or add a stack of bracelets. It’s great fun to get creative with accessories.
I am teaming up with Nordgreen to give away THREE watches this week. Visit the site for Nordgreen here and pick out the watch you would like to win and then tell me your choice in the comments below. I will randomly choose three names and announce the winners in the blog post on Friday. Good luck!
It was fifty degrees and raining the day that I wore this look.
