During football season, these concepts are all too familiar: tackle, rush, defense, toss, tight-end, blocking, kick, forward, punt, pass and interception. (yawn!) BUT, Style Mavens unite!! You, too, can embrace the rest of the season with a strategy that requires no trades and has nothing to do with fantasy. Huddle up! It’s GAME DAY, so let’s PLAY!!
TACKLE the season with gusto. Color is in the spotlight, so don’t shy away. Embrace these!
The colors of garnet and raspberry, emerald and clover, turquoise and ocean are hot hot hot! So, RUSH to your closet for those hidden gems you’ve been ignoring. Even if you don’t dress in color head-to-toe, at least think ‘color’ when choosing jewelry and scarves. You’ll feel younger and more refreshed wearing pretty tones during these shortened, drab days of fall and winter.
In your DEFENSE, change is terribly tough. But, if things don’t fit, don’t fight it…. TOSS them! You never feel your best in things too baggy OR too TIGHT-end (okay, that was a stretch), things too short OR too young! Why do you think God invented daughters and consignment shops?! Give! Donate! Sell! Get them out of your closet! HUT HUT! HUT!
Remember when color-blocking was all the rage? Well, now we’re BLOCKING with leather and lace. Dresses, jackets and tops this year are artfully accented. Add them to your repertoire. Never has daytime-to-dinner looked so good.
KICK it up a notch with an idea borrowed from your man. The suit! No wonder he’s never late in the morning. He doesn’t have to think!?! The pants match the jacket match the shoes match the belt match the coffee….. Aaaand, he’s out the door! Now, for women they’re baaaaaaack! (…thankfully, designed a lot more creatively (and femininely) than those we wore in the 80′s. Phew!)
Be FORWARD thinking and don’t let the season PASS without a cool pair of boots. Nothing says smart and chic or comfort and style like boots. Leggings? Perfect for boots. Skinny jeans? MADE for boots. Skirts with tights? Boots! Dresses with fishnets? I think you get the idea. Pair them with boooooots!!!!!
Still not sure what to wear? Just PUNT! You can’t go too terribly wrong with the relaxed rules of fashion these days. Just look at Miley Cyrus. Uh, …. yeah. On second thought (I think I’ve just found my final football analogy) … now THERE’S a case in need of a serious style INTERCEPTION! Well?!? I’m just sayin’.
Remember to … Always rock your full potential! Hut! Hut! Clap! BREAK! Grunt! Now, go get ‘em! (especially those boots!!)
