Friday Frocks: Red, White, and Beautiful

fourth of july barbecue fashionSo you’ve opted out of that flag bikini, but you are feeling festive and what better way to pledge your allegiance than a Fourth of July friendly frock?  No need to swath yourself in an American flag.  Isn’t that illegal anyhow?  (Ask Lil Wayne).  Instead of being entirely predictable and in the spirit of outfits that have longer shelf lives than summer romances, choose a dress in solid red, white, or blue, or pick a pattern combining the hues to be the biggest babe at the barbecue– potentially setting of some fireworks of your own.

Friday Frocks: Lil Bit of This, Lil Bit of That
Written by: WhyDid | Friday Frocks

Every woman, no matter her age, lifestyle, or body type must own the perfect LBD.  At times, a simple black frock can seem a bit dull, but there are some easy ways to add interest to an otherwise standard staple.  To avoid falling flat, texture can be a crucial part of keeping your LBD from being run of the mill.  Leather, lace, or a combination of the two will take you from standard to standout.  In a classic shape or something more au courant, the basic little black dress has never looked better.

Setting the Mood: Don’t Sweater The Technique
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

sweatersIt’s easy to get melancholy over the falling leaves and temperatures when autumn rolls around.  It’s stayed strangely warm this year, but it’s merely a matter of time before you are going to be swaddled in cashmere and merino.  I may be biased having spent a portion of my professional life in knitwear, but there is not much I love more than a giant cozy sweater.  With destroyed denim, sleek leather, or simple legwear, knitwear is nothing less than versatile.  Embrace the chill and find yourself a cozy sweater to snuggle up in.

Why Did You Wear That: Fall Overhaul
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

September 22nd marked the first day of fall (and also my dad’s and beloved pooch’s birthdays).  Now you can officially start complaining about the end of summer… not that you haven’t been doing so since Labor Day and the end of your summer share.  I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I actually find fall to be a little bit magical.  It’s nice to have everyone back in the city.  Sidewalks are full of brunchers on the weekends soaking in the last bits of tolerable temperatures.  There seems to be a tinge of excitement in the crisp air.  For what- I’m not quite sure… can’t possibly be the impending arctic winter.  And while I do love a teeny bikini, I’ve always preferred dressing for fall.  Layering cashmere, leather, boots, and coats may seem daunting to some though.  So, I’ve put together ten fall trends that will help you start your shopping list and soften the shift from summer to fall.
