Animal Instincts: 8 Styles for Your Wild Side

“Trust your instincts.”

 Can you believe that the first month of 2015 is  almost over?  It's incredible how fast time flies. We're already starting to see Valentine's Day signage everywhere, and we’re also starting to see the light at the end of our cold winter tunnel. And yes, it does get cold here in Las Vegas!

As we move forward towards our goals, sometimes we want a little boost to feel fierce and powerful, and there is nothing like an animal print to help channel your inner Artemis. This season, designers have put a great new twist on the traditional animal prints, offering it in unexpected colors and textures.

Pair these prints with a great neutral pant or skirt, add some great natural stone or wood accessories, and you’re ready to stalk your prey, be it that cute guy you keep seeing in the coffee shop or the promotion you’ve been eyeing for months. Whatever you do, let your outside reflect the fierce and powerful woman on the inside, and you can’t help but succeed!

Menswear Monday: Wear to Work

Whether you work in a super-corporate office setting or in a more laidback environment, dressing sharply for work should always be top of mind. As they say, “dress for the job you want, not for the job you have.”

If you’re more of a corner-office-with-a-view type, a well-tailored black suit is always an essential. Grab a nice wool coat to layer on to and from work. For more business-casual office settings, versatile separates like a grey blazer over dark denim or slacks are key. So are solid men’s dress shirts that fit close to the body but not overly tight.

Stocking your closet with versatile workwear pieces that mix and match well together is really the foundation of a great work-to-dinner wardrobe. It’s all about sticking to neutral tones, timeless fits, but feeling free to throw in a pop of color here and there for interest!

Last but not least, don’t forget the right work shoes! A good pair of classic oxfords or loafers is your best bet for finishing off that highly successful office attire.

Menswear Monday: Holiday Party Picks

Gents, as New Year’s Eve quickly approaches and holiday party season continuing to rage on at a steady pace, it’s natural that we start thinking about what we’re wearing to all these celebrations.

To help get those wheels turning, I’ve come up with a couple of party looks for both fancy parties and more casual get-togethers.

 

For a dressy event, consider going for a more monochromatic suiting option. Pair a black suit with a grey or dark purple dress shirt and pull it all together with a black tie. Anchor this timeless look with classic accessories—a black tie bar, a black dress belt and some shiny dress shoes should do the trick!

Come Fly With Me: 9 Packable, Mixable, Match-able Pieces

The day before Thanksgiving is traditionally known as the busiest travel day of the year, filled with insane scheduling and stress as we fly in and out of our favorite places.

One of the biggest challenges of travelling for the holidays, besides implementing a strategy for avoiding all the uncomfortable questions from your family about your love life (or lack thereof), your career (or lack thereof), and avoiding crazy Aunt Agnes, is packing a wardrobe that is appropriate for all the family gatherings, while still having a great outfit to wear out when the crew of friends that you’ve known since childhood decides to meet up for “Catch-Up Cocktails”. 

So, in honor of the upcoming Turkey Day festivities, I bring you a sampling of some amazing, packable items that mix and match perfectly, so you can pack in a carryon and avoid baggage fees.

Many of these styles are from Zappos’ own amazing private label (exclusive) brands. These pieces will all pack fabulously and are ready to wear fresh out of the bag! Pair them with a basic bootie, add a great necklace, and you are ready to rock it out.

I wish you all safe travels and the best of times celebrating with family and friends!
