We’re Stripping Down to Nude This Season

Fashion This season we’re all about nudes, neutrals and blush tones. One of the best things about nude tones is that you can wear them with virtually anything. Whether you wear neutral/blush tones alone, or together as a complete outfit you’ll be looking chic and timeless. You can certainly never go wrong when it comes to this color palette.

Dusty rose, powder pink and barely-there nudes are the way to go for the upcoming spring season. These colors are sure to bring out the girly, romantic side of you. Soft and warm, you will always feel at ease when wearing these versatile colors of the season. (more…)

Baby, It’s Cold Outside: Layer Up!

Layers For those of you on the East Coast, we assume you’re well aware of the recent temperature drop we’ve been experiencing. The weather has been crisp, cool, fresh and an all-around perfect fall season as of yet. If you haven’t already done so, it’s officially time to break out your layering pieces.

Oh, layering. Where do we even begin? We think of layering as a type of art. If done properly, you can look so effortless and chic like you quickly threw together this masterpiece of an outfit. Someone will always pay you that compliment of, “Oh my god you look so cute today!” and the response is generally, “Really?!! I just threw it on and ran out the door.”

Bottom line: once you know how to properly layer your garments the outcome will always be compliment-worthy. We put together four different layered-up outfits for daily situations all girls encounter.

Watch the video to see how we layer up! (more…)

How to Wear the Trend: Camo

In the past, most of us reserved camouflage for real, mean, hide-in-the-forest type bustle. And for the brave who rocked it, they infiltrated the military thrift stores and made their own anti-society fashion mark on the world, sometimes alone. We looked at them and thought, man they must be a tough cookie, because if they walk into a dark forest they might just disappear…and then what?

Those days are over. No one will think you’re GI-Woman come to life. But you can be — dare I say it — trendy. Top designers like Phillip Lim, DKNY, Equipment and even Manolo Blahnik have taken this otherwise brute feeling pattern and made it high-fashion and all over the streets of style. The colors are always neutral in nature, ranging from green to khaki, with subtle hints of grey. For the bolder, you’ll see movement into the reds and blues, the special forces of high fashion camo.

So now that you can buy it from SINGER22, how do you wear this pattern? It’s neutral in color and yet so bold in nature, which makes it hard for a lot of us to wrap our heads around how to make it good. Follow some key guidelines: (more…)

Make Sure You’re Wearing Your Leggings the Right Way

We love leggings, jeggings, and all that stretchy goodness. They’re far more comfortable than any pair of those constricting skinny jeans that we have been magically able to squeeze into. Sometimes not so gracefully with the classic wide leg squat and jump, with fingers gripping  belt loops upward for dear life maneuver, wondering when would be the day we’d rip one off. Then we’d disguise muffin tops and became pros at sucking in our gut that it became second nature and we actually convinced ourselves we were that skinny. That is, until we got home peeled our jeans off and caught a glimpse of ourselves in the mirror as we exhaled. Ugh. (more…)

Create Your Own Movie Moments with These Easy Tips

You know when you’re watching a movie and somehow everything seems to magically work out for the main character in ways that seemingly never happen for you? If your life is anything like mine, all your life changing opportunities are presented at the worst times. The cute guy is standing beside you in the coffee line and you’re dressed like a bum, you get invited to the party/networking event of the century and you won’t have time to go home and change beforehand,   your pants rip on the way to your interview, or your heels already blistered your feet and your date with your future husband has just begun.

It’s a Jungle Out There

You can never go wrong with animals prints. Season after season animal is in. And what better way to appreciate nature and not upset PETA than to incorporate the prints and patterns of the wild into our wardrobes? Cheetah prints make us feel feminine and fierce like the feline of the jungle…or Savannah or wherever it is that cheetah’s hangout. While snake and python prints make us feel sleek and seductive like the slithery, stealthy reptiles. Zebra prints are bold, exotic and eye catching. We wear these prints not only for the appreciation of color or shape but for what the animals themselves exemplifies and we secretly wish we were like ourselves.

New York CityIf I were an animal I’d want to be a panther or any exotic big cat. I say panther because even in animal form I like to be dressed in black from head to toe. Panthers are strong, graceful and mysterious. They’re basically the animal version of what the ideal Bond girl is. And a Bond girl is the epitome of sexy, powerful, and feminine. FYI the panther is not an actual separate species of cat. A panther just refers to a large cat species that has excessive black pigment so you cant actually see their spots without close observation. There’s your daily dose of Zoboomafoo fun facts for those of you who still remember that show.

In the spirit of the of the persistent – and one of my favorite – trends I went to SoHo to see what animals the street stylers would be themselves. (more…)

Tops for Turkey

Turkey time is the perfect opportunity to show off your fall colors and dress comfortably. You don't want the "Turkey Ten" sticking out post dinner making you feel guilty, so better stick with flowy sweaters and stretchy leggings. I am crushing over these sweaters: Michael Lauren Vince Oversized Sweater ::: Jet by John Eshaya Rib Turtleneck ::: Joie Mesh Sweater and to keep toasty warm, cover up any of these looks with Wink Tiffant Faux Fur Jacket .
