I heard recently that fashion is what you buy and style is how you wear it. As a fashion addict I get sucked into the trends. I absolutely love the hanging sweater dress on other people. I just can’t pull it off. My personal style needs to be in alignment with my body type if I want to accentuate my assets.
Whats your body type? If you are not sure or need a refresher, here’s a great article from Real Simple. I am a 5’5″ hourglass. If I don’t show my waistline I look like a 4 foot ballon. It’s energizing to realize that once we understand our body type we can utilize the current trends and create a figure flattering look.
About this look I love how the short sweater dress paired with the long coat creates a high low effect. These boots are on major sale! My west coast husband loves the southwestern boho vibe. I have to admit the details are incredible and they are super comfortable. I purchased them at 25% off. Now Saks has some sizes at approximately 60% off. More sizes here at ~ 40% off. More shopping links below.
I’m having fun layering for this unpredictable weather. This classic tan coat has been a good buy. Now is a great time to look for high quality pieces on sale.
I just have to mention how excited I am that brooches have made a come back. Here is a great article on 10 ways to wear the Brooches. I’m wearing one that belonged to my grandmother.
Hope everyone is doing wonderful! I just found out that I get to go to a Verdad show during fashion week in New York. SO excited! Lots of love, jean
