FOX 5 WAGA TV Style Segment

“A Season of Gatherings”

What an exciting day for me and my team of models!!! Best Impressions In Style was invited by FOX 5 TV to create a style segment with Karen Graham, anchor of GOOD DAY ATLANTA using three basic pieces men and women could wear now and through the holidays to social gatherings. FOX 5 TV had already asked Kohl’s to participate so I got to work styling three models in fabulous outfits from a local Kohl’s store. Of course I wanted to include the current trends of animal print, embellished collars, gold accents, knits, and leather!

Don’t they look amazing in their new clothes?!! They’re in perfect outfits for parties, dinner out, and for getting together with friends. Each piece can be worn so many ways to make totally different outfits…love the leather jackets!

Here’s the whole group with GOOD DAY ATLANTA’s own Karen Graham (center) and make up artist, Udunma Ogene (second from the right).

This one’s a little blurry but we were having FUN!!!

Lucy looks hot but classy in this feminine blouse under a quilted leather jacket paired with a cute pleated knit skirt!

 Doesn’t Barbara look like she’s ready for a party in her animal print top with gold chain trim paired with cropped straight leg pants? She’s wearing a pretty cream colored jacket that’s a perfect fit for her little petite body.

 And here’s Karen Graham and me giving big smiles for the camera! Well, as they say in show business…. “that’s a wrap!”… Now I’m off to style my next client….is it YOU?!!

Men…It’s Business Casual

WHAT TO WEAR WHEN YOU DON’T NEED A SUIT

Guys… You might be wearing a suit less than ever before, so what are you supposed to wear to look professional and put together? A shirt and khakis might be your “go to staple” but there are other options. Consider the current trend of a lightweight crew neck sweater like this from Brooks Brothers. A soft crew neck sweater can be worn without a shirt underneath for a clean, professional look.

Layer a crew neck sweater under a sport coat like this also from Brooks Brothers. Wear it with trousers for a business dinner meeting, and then switch to jeans for a casual night out with friends another time.

For an alternative color to your khaki trousers, consider these great wrinkle resistant cotton chinos also found at Brooks Brothers.

Another option on top is to wear a modern sweater vest like this available at Nordstrom. It can be worn under a blazer and may be worn with a tie.

Now remember your grooming touch-ups and you’ll look great! Hope these tips give you new ideas for business casual!

* Brooks Brothers is located in Lenox and Perimeter Malls

* Nordstrom is located in Phipps Plaza and Perimeter Malls

Guys….. It’s Date Night!

HERE’S THE PLAN….. and let’s keep it simple !

First, you need to know that BLUE is a fantastic color on most men! So if you want to look your best, go for a blue shirt, like this one from Dillard’s. White or red could be a second choice, but yellow is a tricky color and isn’t wonderful on many guys. Add a charcoal grey t-shirt underneath for extra style. Now that you know the color, decide if you’re going casual or a little nicer.                         

  If you’re casual and wearing jeans, you might enjoy the Levi’s 501 original straight leg, sold in many stores but can be found at Macy’s. Heavy set men are better off with a boot cut jean.

Add a belt in woven leather like this made by Cole Haan at Nordstom for a little texture. Top your shirt with a great looking lightweight jacket, maybe in khaki from Nordstrom.

Then the last, VERY important thing is to leave your Nike shoes at home and wear a good leather shoe, possibly like the Ralph Lauren driver from Dillard’s.

You’ll look amazing for your Date! Have FUN guys and if you have questions, let me know!
