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?!!

Consider skinny jeans…

SKINNY JEANS are EVERYWHERE!

The SKINNY denim look keeps going strong! There are so many denim brands to choose from in all price ranges so it’s hard to know where to start and what to look for! Are premium denim jeans worth the price? You CAN find skinny (or straight leg) jeans to fit your shape!

People Magazine Style Watch 2012 winner’s Levi’s Modern Rise Bold Curvy Skinny jeans might be just what your curves need and the dark wash is slimming too.

Also a Style Watch award winner in the “boyish” category is the Gap 1969 Always Skinny jeans.

To improve shape retention, premium brands are made with specialized fabric blends of cotton, polyester, Lycra, spandex, etc… the list goes on. Added extra’s … hidden pockets and forward side seams are common, as well as other special features like you’ll find in the Paige skinnies (my personal favorites) available at Bloomingdale’s.

The rear pockets are very subtly asymmetrical for a flattering look and the dark wash is without whiskering or shading to help you appear longer and leaner.

If you prefer a straight leg jean, the DL 1961 “Kate” style was another Style Watch 2012 award winner, considered universally flattering and can be found at Nordstom and Von Maur.

Plus sized Lucky Brand “Ginger” skinny jeans are available in a dark wash and other colors, and are sold at Macy’s. 

Petite and Tall ladies will find many choices on the Lucky Brand website, and in Gap Stores.

You may decide skinny denim isn’t for you, but these are great options to try! Skinny or straight leg jeans are perfect with flats, heels, tucked into boots this winter or with sandals in the summer…..ahhhh, can’t wait for that!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Popping Color With Bright Skinny Jeans

Popping Color With Bright Skinny Jeans

Bright colored jeans are all the rage these days and are a Great way
to bring color into your Spring wardrobe!

Did you recently see popular fashion trend setter Kate Middleton sporting some coral colored J Brand 811 jeans? So cute and she continues to prove she’s a style icon! What I love about Kate Middleton is that the majority of her clothes are affordable within reason for many of us. The sales for these jeans soared at department stores such as Bloomingdales and Nordstrom after Kate debuted them earlier this Spring.

Popping Color With Bright Skinny JeansAnother bright and vibrant color that screams Spring is a pair of green skinnies as you can see here on Cheryl Cole, who looks adorable for a night out on the town. These jeans pair really well with your looser tops or fun jackets and can be really flattering.

This weekend I stopped into one of my favorite stores, J Crew, and saw that they had a great selection of cropped skinnies with ankle zippers and I love that extra little detail!

 

It’s amazing how just one pair of skinny jeans can really transform and update your entire spring wardrobe. If you’re not comfortable with the skinny jeans look, why not consider a more versatile fit such as Gap’s colored khakis.

I went to the exciting new Nordstrom Rack near North Point Mall tonight for their Private Party! They had a great supply of bright skinny jeans in lots of colors!

 

Do you have a favorite pair of
colored skinny jeans or khaki pants?
