Strong Looks for Bold Moves

How is your New Year’s Resolution going? Are you all still working on that ONE goal you’ve set for yourself?  Some days, it is easier than others to pull that inner strength out and move forward. For those rough days, sometimes you need a "power outfit" that helps you feel like that tough, strong and amazing woman you are on the inside.

After all, one of the best things about clothing is that it helps each of us write our story and show the world around us how we feel. Fashion is the story of ourselves, representated by the clothing and jewelry on our bodies and how we wear it, rather than letting it wear us.

It is for this reason that I am in LOVE with the current moto-punk-chic trend. I mean, how can you back down and wimp out when you’re rocking a leather dress and strong denim? Add some great jewelry and a cool bag and get ready to let the world know you’re here and ready to rock!

Menswear Monday: Sweaters for Every Occasion

Layering is a big component of smart cold-weather dressing, and one of the wardrobe fundamentals for winter layers is the sweater. There are several types of stylish men’s sweaters available for work, weekend and even nights out.

From refined V-neck sweaters to the classic crew neck pullover, stocking your closet with versatile sweaters is a good foundation of any well-rounded winter wardrobe. For more casual days, there’s the comfy and laidback French terry sweatshirt, or perhaps a merino wool cardigan to take your t-shirt-and-jeans look to the next level.

No matter what kind of men’s sweater you go with, remember that fit is key. Avoid a sloppy look by making sure the shoulder seams sit right on the shoulders (unless, of course, it’s a drop-shoulder sweater).

Below are a few of our favorite men’s sweaters to mix and match in your wardrobe this winter and even as we transition into spring:

Shades of Grey: 9 Pieces that are Anything but Basic

The holidays are over, and your New Year’s resolutions are in full swing. Good for you! Was one of your resolutions to step outside of your fashion comfort zone?  Then the “shades of grey” trend may be just the right baby step for you!

I will admit that as a curvy girl, I have spent more time than I care to admit wearing black because it's considered “slimming”. Getting comfortable enough on my fashion feet to rock bright colors took a little while, and grey was one of the first steps for me. 

Grey is a fabulous color- it can be dark enough to still feel conservative and comfortable (and ok, slimming), while the lightest shades can feel much softer and brighter. Add in some textural details and patterns, and you will find grey is one amazing color!

Throw on a Michael Michael Kors faux fur vest, a great silver belt or jewelry, and you have another outstanding go-to in your fashion arsenal that is versatile but never boring! Beyond that, we're also lucky that grey is considered the new black, so there is an amazing selection of plus sized grey items to suit your personal style. These are just a few of my personal favorites!
