Look Fabulous Wearing a Tuxedo Jacket


  • A tuxedo jacket has become a staple on every girls closet. Here are some tips to look your best while wearing it.
  • Don’t make it too masculine. While wearing a tuxedo jacket make sure to add some feminine elements such as lace, or silk.
  • A full tuxedo look is always an option but I prefer mixing 2 separates. The usual look is black pants white blazer but you can always adventure with other colors such as blue or even metallics
  • Find the right fit for the occasion. A more loose style such as the boyfriend jacket is perfect for a casual look. Look for a more tailored style for a more elegant look

Professional Wardrobe Help:

First of all congratulations on your recent life achievements!  This is a very exciting time and of course looking fabulous is a must

Here are a few items that are essential on everyone wardrobe because of their functionality and of course they would never go out of style.  The best part about this is that you can mix and match many if this items and create different outfits.

A basic black dress– Try to find a style and cut that would flatter your body. Also look for versatility; the dress can look amazing over a blazer for the office or with a fabulous pair of pumps for cocktails.

Blazer– As I mention before a blazer can dress up a fabulous LBD but that is not all. A fabulous flazer can be one of the best investments you ever made. It can create a power suit,  dress up a basic t-shirt and jeans. A well fitted jacket should follow the silhouette of a woman’s body and accent the hourglass curve at her waist.

Dress Pants– A very important part of a power suit! Find neutral colors like black and gray.

Skirt– A skirt is a feminine option to the dress pants and can be flirty or businesslike.

Classic Shirt– A white bottom down shirt is the obvious choice for this but look for one that accentuates your best attributes and minimizes trouble spots. For example, if you have wide shoulders, stay away from large collars.

Any Occasion Top– Look for something that can look great inside a jacket, or by itself (like stripes).

A day dress-Dresses are my favorite thing to wear during the hot months ( that in Houston can be like 10 lol) A good cotton dress can be a great option to run errands or  to have lunch.

Hope I was able to help!

More than One Way to Layer

Layering is a fabulous way to create new outfit from the clothes you already have in your closet.

 First let’s start with something simple

Jacket + Vest

As always proportion is key! Because of the layers the upper part is going to be thicker. Pick a slimmer fitted piece for the bottom part of the outfit.

Make sure either one of the pieces is light weight. If both the vest and the jacket are made from heavy materials, it would be a bit difficult to move your arms.

 

Short Sleeve Top + Long Sleeve Top

You have many options for this look, from Blazer over shirt, Sweater over dress or other short sleeve top over long sleeve to you want to combine, just be creative. Only thing, make sure the long sleeve layer is lighter and slimmer than the short sleeve.

 

 

Crop Top + Long Top

This is one of my favorite and easier looks. The simplest way to do this trend is with a crop jacket and long top or crop sweater and long top. Try to use only neutral colors for the outfit to look more polish.

I am pretty sure there are more ways to layer and look fabulous, so if you know any more feel free to share   

 

Just a Tiny More Lady Chic

Between all this 60’s inspired shows (Mad Men and Pan Am) and well the new Duchess of Cambridge many of us want to look a bit more polish. Here are some tips to look just a tiny more lady like;

  • Update your wardrobe; look for more feminine silhouettes. When wearing patterns make sure they flatter your body. A good fitted blazer is perfect to polish any casual look.
  • When buying accessories always invest in timeless rather than trendy. Structure bags give an elegant look. Think belts and leather gloves are fabulous accessories for this winter!
  • A frizz-free hair can give you an effortless and elegant look. If you are like me and not very good at blow-drying your hair, you can always schedule a professional blow dry. Here in Houston we have the fabulous Do bar!
  • ALWAYS have a manicure!
  • Be aware of your pose, there is nothing worst that I women who does not stand straight.

How to Find the Right Cashmere Sweater

Who doesn’t love cashmere? It is seriously a staple of winter wardrobe, but as many fabulous things, you need to take a very special care of it, from purchasing it till how to take care for the cashmere to last.

A good cashmere sweater can definitively be a great investment to your wardrobe so try to find the best quality. A great way to test the quality of the sweater before buying it is by gently stretching the body of the sweater. If the sweater snaps back to shape, it is a good sign!

I would recommend to stay with neutral tones (blacks, grays, tans etc). Because this is a statement item this colors would always be in style.

We all have to be realistic accidents are going to happen (especially if you are as clumsy as I am ugh!) If you get a stain and can’t take it to the drycleaners, hand-wash the stain with mild detergent. If for some reason there are some wrinkles, hang the sweater in a steamy bathroom.
