  • Have a neutral party with new base colors

    Lately I've been getting a lot of questions about neutral colors. Both men and women seem slightly befuddled about the base hues around which to build an ensemble. One of my girlfriends recently inquired about a navy sheath dress, and which color...
  • Men's holiday outfits are all about the tie

    It occurred to me after I wrote about holiday outfits for women a couple weeks ago that men don't have it so easy this season either. Now, most of the time I think you boys make a big fuss about nothing. Your trends last for 10 years, where ours are...

    Tips for riding -- and conquering -- the neon wave
    A friend and I recently discussed the challenges of neon. This particular friend happens to be blond, blue-eyed and fair-skinned. She was actually wearing a lime green shirt, but not by choice -- it was a workout top and was neon as most workout attire...
  • Scent of a splurge: The right perfume is worth it

    Scent of a splurge: The right perfume is worth it
    In the grand scheme of fashion and beauty, I consider perfume to be one of my biggest indulgences. For the average person, an up-to-date closet, good grooming practices and if you're of the female variety, a basic makeup routine, are significant beyond...

    True confessions: I've been avoiding the printed pants column. Despite my affinity for all things stylish, there are those rare occasions when I'm not on board with high fashion. Sometimes I see a look on an awards show red carpet that all my favorite...

  • Small discounts make a difference too

    Small discounts make a difference too
    Any savvy shopper knows that making an amazing purchase almost always involves an amazing sale. The finds you rave about most often are the ones where someone says, "Great shoes!" And you respond, "They were 75 percent off! Can you believe it?!" But...
  • These boots are made for walking - and looking fabulous

    October has arrived, and we're really just a hop, skip and a jump from the holiday season. You know what that means: it's time for new boots. As a Chicagoan, I live the entirety of fall and winter in boots. No matter what kind of weather I'm walking...
  • What to know about the art of tailoring

    Tailoring is one of those things you never know you need until alterations change your life. Take, for example, my last tailoring experience with one of what I'm sure will be many bridesmaid dresses in my future. This dress was a fitted, one-shoulder,...

    Make your sundresses work-appropriate with these tips
    Every so often, I poll my family and friends for column ideas. Sometimes they're not all that helpful (sorry guys) but this week my friend Anne brought up a good one. Summer trends are always the least conservative, and this includes dresses. Honestly,...
