Color Block an outfit : the monochromatic way

Color Block an outfit : the monochromatic way

Whether you follow by the rules of fashion or not is entirely up to you. Personally, I wear what makes me feel good. Yes, time and again, I jump on the trend wagon. Often times, I try to ignore the mainstream trends and stick to ultimately looks good. This brings me to one of my favorite ways of creating an outfit: Color-Blocking! By definition, color-blocking is thought of as the exploration of taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations. It is commonly associated in fashion as a trend that originated from the artwork of…

Create a fail proof work outfit

Create a fail proof work outfit

In one of my instagram posts, I asked each one of you what industry you work in and your ‘go-to work outfit’. I received a ton of responses and came to learn that many of you do very interesting work across many different industries. From government work to tech startups to fashion houses, I must say I am in good company and I can not wait to see what incredible things you all achieve in your careers. #Girlpower What sparked my question was my own experience of finding the perfect work outfit that exudes confidence and comfort yet looks polished…

Everyone needs a good dress in their closet. If you don’t have a dress that fits like a glove; always looks polished and timeless; one you can dress up or down: and count on to not reveal just how bloated you are…then this post is for you!

The shape is flattering, especially because it has a belt that cinches the waist which makes it look smaller (without the cardio) and Plaid as a color…

We are all guilty of having one too many pairs of shoes. In fact, I am even guilty of having one too many pairs of the same type of shoe. My rule for buying shoes is: If you can wear them multiple times (in the house counts, right?) and you can’t get them out of your mind, then you must BUY them!

pretty in pink: the Power Suit of the Season

pretty in pink: the Power Suit of the Season

Did Millennial pink throw up on everything lately or is it just me? To be honest, I thought this pink trend would have died down by now. Don’t get me wrong, pink is a lovely color (in the form of flowers, lipsticks and nail polish) but I never loved pink on clothes. Ok, maybe once upon on time I liked it but definitely not in the last 10 years. I often associated it with Barbie dolls aka being way “too childish” for the professional young adult. Especially when working in Corporate America, anything outside the black, white and gray color…
