THIS WEEK'S LOOKS...


LOOK #1 

STYLIST NOTES:

There's something about a jumpsuit. It's playful while being fashionably on-point, plus, you've got pockets! Throw a blazer over the shoulders to keep cozy or just let the jumpsuit fly solo. Pick a dramatic statement earring, or something major to sit across your neckline, just make sure it's either one or the other. 

What body type should go for this look? Hourglasses, have fun with this one. If the bootie scares you, opt for a more subtle and classic nude peep-toe pump. Or just go with a pop color strappy in a neon blue, saturated pink, or whatever fits your mood.

*THIS LOOK ALSO WORKS FOR RECTANGLES AND PEARS.

What body type should avoid this one? Apples, the neckline on the jumpsuit combined with the layering on top is not your best bet. Instead, you could go with a v-neck and leave the blazer out.

LOOK #2 

STYLIST NOTES:

Bright, white. There's something about a woman having a 'white dress moment.' Classic, subtle, not too in-your-face, and the perfect play on the female silhouette. The deep-v on this dress makes it a better option for evening, or if you have a smaller bust-line, you could carry this into daytime.

What body type should go for this look? Apples, go to town here. If the deep-v neck scares you, swap it out for something a bit higher but keep that v-shape. The flare on the skirt balances out proportions on your top half along with the strappy details on the sandal. A subtle earring, colorful lip, and pop of color in the clutch bring it all together. Say hello to Spring!

*THIS LOOK WORKS FOR ALL OTHER BODY TYPES AS WELL. IT'S WHAT I LIKE TO CALL AN 'ALL-SKATE.'

What body type should avoid this one? Every body type can pull this off. Yep. The top half will elongate, the bottom half will flatter with a slight flare of fabric that falls away from the body, and the accessories are pretty translatable to all types. If you feel comfortable with the cinching at the waist (super flattering) and daring drop in the neckline, it's all yours.

LOOK #3 

STYLIST NOTES:

It's time to start thinking about transitioning your daytime looks into Spring. A cap-sleeve top with some serious print takes the look from basic to interesting. The boot cut jean flatters, universally, while the slouchy neutral bag and tough black leather cuff keep things casually pulled together. Always one to inject some color into any fashion equation, I had to go with this coral wedge. 

What body type should go for this look? Rectangles, you can handle the strong print. The top tapers along the upper torso so you don't box yourself in, and the fit on the jeans through the thigh combined with a slight flare at the hem, will add a few visual curves to your straight frame.

*THIS LOOK ALSO WORKS FOR PEARS & HOURGLASSES.

What body type should avoid this one? Apples, you want to avoid having all of that print on the top half of your body because you don't want to overpower the rest of your look. You could do a basic top in the same silhouette (solid color) and opt for a printed pant, (still boot cut) to make this work for you. Flip flop a bit to find your fashion sweet spot.

LOOK #4 

STYLIST NOTES:

How can one ever go wrong with a DVF dress right? More Spring time color comes into the equation, courtesy of this crew-neck coral number. 

What body type should go for this look? Pears, the addition of a statement necklace on top of the bold color will balance out proportions and bring the eye-line up above your hips. The solid color and overall fit that cinches at the waist, and falls in an a-line after that, just happens to be a recipe for success when it comes to your body type. The neutral bag, sunnies, and playful pump are just gravy at this point.

*THIS LOOK ALSO WORKS FOR HOURGLASSES AND RECTANGLES.

What body type should avoid this one? Apples. That said, you can absolutely make this work for you by simply omitting the statement necklace and going with some layered bracelets instead.
