The holiday season is all about decadence – bright lights, rich colors, and of course, lush textures. The best way to celebrate in style is with some soft, chic velvet. The drama ends there, though, because the keys to pulling off the slinky fabric are muted colors, impeccable tailoring, and minimalism (Multiple pieces at once? A definite no!).
When I put on a pair of boyfriend jeans a few months ago, my husband laughed so hard he almost peed his pants. They’re just too baggy for petite girls (the crotch sagged all the way to my knees!). Truth be told, I could’ve fit three of me in those jeans. At the same time, I’m sick of skintight skinnies that demand you skip dinner the night before.
Dressing appropriately for work is not always easy for a Snob with a strict office dress code, but where there’s a will, there’s a way! Replace those boring khakis with some color and add some sophisticated sparkle via unique, yet understated black crystals. Show your respects to the traditional office uniform with a basic white button-down and some black heels (closed-toe is a must).
Calling all my Dallas-based Snobs! This Friday, two of my favorite people are coming together at one of my favorite stores. The lovely China Chow is co-hosting a champagne-filled soiree at Forty Five Ten honoring the equally lovely Derek Lam.
You can’t leave the house without spotting a sleek, slick pair of leather leggings these days. From red carpets to running errands, celebs have been loving this look and spreading this hot fall trend. Olivia Palermo strolled through the city in a pair by Daryl K recently, wearing them with Report boots and a cozy fur vest.
I’ve long been enamored with the flattering cut of Rag & Bone jeans and the instant glam that comes with one of their fedoras, but in the last year I’ve come to realize that the CFDA-winning duo, David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, also know how to design quite the tailored jacket.
The one outfit I want for Spring 2014 is by none other than Narciso Rodriguez. Black and white is a big look for spring (again!), and combining that trend with Narciso’s mainstay – colorblocking – is like the perfect storm. I’m all for dressing appropriately for your age, but if you’ve got the abs, flaunt them because the midriff has never looked so elegant.
Leave it to Rachel Zoe to make sequined sweatpants look sophisticated. Her casual California cool never comes without an air of elegance. We saw the usual suspects (jumpsuits and maxi dresses) as well as some welcome newcomers (long denim skirts and polished laser cut jackets).
