It's been a long work week and dressing down (or as I like to think of it, another way of dressing up) is a wonderful break from the dress code dictated by the corporate office. This afternoon, I'm sneaking out of work early for some needed retail therapy. I need an outfit that has a little versatility: conservative enough for clients, yet fun, playful and flirty for a late lunch and shopping with the hubby.
Styling Tip #4: Try what's on trend! Color-blocking.
From the runways of Europe to the hallways of the Mid-West and every by-way in between, the color blocking trend is everywhere this spring season.
Glamour.com bloggers, Megan Gustashaw and Susan Cernek, offer a styling tip for Cheerful Color-Blocking in their article Spring 2012's Most Wearable Fashion Trends; "Bold solid color pieces make simple dressing look glam...[but to] stick to three colors max to avoid the girly, Rainbow Brite look."
Ready for the day, shoulders up on my smock-neck blouse and shoulders down for lunch...I hope you can incorporate these styling tips into your everyday style for absolutely-fabulous look!
