Classy Chic

Thursday, November 1, 2012

 Many people today seem to blindly chase after trends, brands, and fads.  We spend so much time shaping ourselves to fit the latest trends and adorn ourselves with brands from head to toe, we lose our sense of self and style.  Having the latest iconic designer handbag or trendiest scarf doesn't necessarily make us fashionable or trendy.  Materialism surrounds us in LA, and sometimes we get absorbed into that culture.  I must admit, I too love purchasing luxury items.  There's nothing wrong with that, but don't let it completely dictate your purchases.  Fashion almost always fades, while style is eternal.  Fashion is made to eventually become unfashionable, so spend more time reflecting and developing your own style.  As Rachel Zoe states, “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”  See what makes you comfortable, mix some faddy trends with classic pieces, and let your clothes speak for you!

·       Look for pieces with quality cutting and timeless designs

·       Find pieces that work for you, clothes that fit your figure, personality, and silhouette.  I love ruffles, chiffon, frills, and bright colors, but it may not be for everyone. 

·      Clothes should be beautiful, but be sure you’re buying something wearable and practical.  Experiment!  Put together different outfits and try them on!

·       Spend some time organizing and de-cluttering your closet, you’ll often rediscover new pieces.

·       Use accessories to turn your day dress into something classier for the evening.  Put on some earrings, necklaces, trade your flats for heels and your large tote for a smaller clutch!
