Common Mistakes

  • Not mixing prints: “Mixed prints can look extremely fresh—think a leopard blouse with a cute strap leopard heel and destructed straight jeans.”
  • Not trying enough sizes: “If you are typically a small, don’t count out a medium, as all brands, styles, et cetera, can run differently.”
  • Not mixing metals: “The must-have trends in jewelry right now are mixed metal midi rings; delicate, layered statement strings; and a seriously diverse arm party with all the rose golds, golds and silvers attending.”
  • Not trying high-waisted styles: “When worn correctly, they totally trick the eye into thinking you are taller and leaner by elongating your lower body.”

Top Tips

  • Plan: “My must-do on Sunday nights is to plan out my outfits for the week.”
  • Stock: “A closet full of items that can literally be mixed and matched with ease can totally take all the guesswork out of your mornings … invest in layering tanks and tees, as they transition from season to season, styled with any layering option in your closet.”
  • Tuck: “You might have heard the phrase ‘tiny tuck’ or ‘tuckle.’ Simply said, this is my go-to style for any look. From spring tanks with shorts, to oversized tees and chunky sweaters, you can change the look of your top by just adding a little tuck to it.”
