This past Monday, I had the wonderful opportunity to put on a fashion show at a local retailer featuring 9 fabulous, professional femmes.
I showcased vibrant work, weekend, and travel looks that you can mix and match and take from day to night.
I felt it important to show the ladies in attendance how to create polished, versatile looks as often times I find that my clients feel like they have multiple wardrobes: one for work, casual weekends, church, date night, etc…
...And yet they still feel like they have nothing to wear!
I’m a firm believer that it’s important to create versatility in your closet not just to showcase your personal style, but it’s also more financially savvy.
You also want to feel confident and like your best self everyday. Whether you’re at work, attending an event, or enjoying a casual weekend. It’s important to create a look that projects who you really are in a way that feels authentic to you!
Having that confidence and overall polished look in your professional life will bring you more of the success you deserve and the life you desire.
Because I love this topic so much, I wanted to share with you my favorite must have items that your closet is missing AND the professional tricks of the trade guaranteed to make you stand out in the RIGHT way! Enjoy!
1. Rethink the blazer
Break apart your basic suits and use them in your weekend wardrobe. Try a black suit blazer with the sleeves rolled up paired with a silk tank, dark wash jeans and heels for a night out. Incorporate more ‘fun’ blazers into your repertoire. From polka dots and stripes, to bold colors, to sheer details, your work blazers don’t have to read ‘boring’.
2. Personalize the LBD
What color gets you the most compliments? Try a ‘Little Black Dress’ in your favorite hue instead of opting for black. Love your black dress? Then experiment with a texture, or even subtle pattern on your LBD to infuse a dose of personality into your work wardrobe.
3. Infuse Color & Pattern
Tired of wearing your ‘go to’ black, gray and khaki? Go bold and stand out in the right way with a colorful or pattern pop at work! Whether you chose to wear color from head to toe, or just one accent piece (like a scarf), incorporating more of these elements is sure to help you showcase your best self at the office.

4. Travel in Comfort & Style
Travel much for work or play? You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Easy pieces like crepe jogger pants, cozy draped tees, knit blazers and slip on sneakers allow for ease when traveling without having to sacrifice looking pulled together. Click HERE

5. Day to Night through Accessories
Going from the office to a dinner with friends or colleagues often means having your work bag in tow. Simply switching out your work bag for a chic clutch or smaller shoulder bag adds instant polish and ease. Feeling fancy? Why not add a more fun piece of jewelry, remove that blazer, or switch from flats to heels. Want to know the must have accessories every woman needs in her jewelry box? Click HERE
