 New York Fashion Week has come and gone and while the shows continue across the pond, I’m always left dreaming and wondering how I can update, incorporate and build upon the wardrobe I already have with the ideas that were shown on the runways. Such questions can cause anyone to throw their hands up with all of the choices, so I’d like to leave you with five tips on how to effortlessly and confidently leave the house each morning looking stylish, pulled together and most importantly, comfortable in your own skin.

Listen To Candice Bergen

Faith Ford once shared the best piece of advice she received regarding fashion from working with Candice Bergen on the set of Murphy Brown – whether your outfit is Chanel or hand me downs, a quality shoe instantly transforms the look from something so-so, to something with tremendous style.  Never cut corners when it comes to your footwear.

Have A Solid Foundation

Lauren Conrad recently shared in her soon to be released book Lauren Conrad Style that by beginning your entire look centered upon one easy piece such as a sheath dress, you’ve already won half of the battle. Now all that is needed is some complementary accessories and beautifully coiffed hair, topped off with stunning flats or heels.

Choose Correctly

Undergarments that is.  The easiest way to add sophistication or to take it away has everything to do with the lingerie and support clothing that is worn underneath.  Consider them absolute necessities when it comes to looking your best.

Don’t Leave Home Without It

The perfect tote for day or clutch for evening is a simple way to add a pop of glitz to a neutral outfit, or a touch of sophistication to an outfit that you’re taking a risk with. The purse a woman carries with her is quite revealing, so be sure to always consider what you want to say.

Add A Belt

A quick and simple way to add a touch of femininity is to show off your waist with the perfect belt.  Whether it be a corset or a skinny belt, the effect can do wonders to pull an outfit that was otherwise just okay to something that is absolutely stunning.

Add A Pop Of Color

Sticking with neutrals for the majority of your wardrobe and adding color by way of your accessories, jacket or shoes, is an easy way to change up the same pair of trousers, dress or beautiful cashmere sweater.
Now rest assured, you will look fantastic each day whether you are wearing a piece of clothing for the first time or simply changing up an item that continually impresses with each outing.

  1. Hey darlin’!

    What fabulous tips! So fantastic! I definitely think that shoes and undergarments can make all the difference in the world.

    Isn’t it amazing what a little attention to detail can do??

    Thank you for the wonderful tips, my dear!


  2. Thanks for a fab post, sweetie. Very timely, as I’m looking at my closet and feeling as if I want to toss it all to the wind and start over. I have been fantasizing that if I did do that what would be the first piece I would go for. To start over with all new undergarments would really be a treat, wouldn’t it? Folding them all “just so” with scented papers & sachets with your favorite scent?

    I recently bought my winter coat and wint with a classic fitted charcoal grey, as grey seems to be one of the colors this year and I thought it would be easy to mix with … but I have more to look for if I can find the time to get out to the stores!

    Thank you for the great tips! xo

  3. Thanks for reminding us that things don’t have to be complicated to be special, or stylish. I agree with Julie – some gorgeous underwear and a great pair of shoes can make you feel really good! 🙂

  4. Great post. My mum always said to me “shoes maketh the man!” (not sure if she made it up??)
    It’s so true, if someone is wearing scruffy, worn out shoes, it just kills their outfit immediately.
    Thank you for all the lovely tips and images ( as always!).

  5. I agree with all the lovely comments above. On my “must have” list for this fall is a skinny-ish leopard print belt, I think it will be the perfect pop for many of my staples. Thank you for the inspiration.

  6. I agree with this post. This was really useful and I enjoyed reading it!

    I agree so much with the lingerie, I’ve been hooked on buying lingerie since last year and I’ve been feeling so much better because of it. It really does help pull the outfit together.

    Classy and Delicious
