How to Wear: Metallics

  1. Pick your precious metal! Wearing your glitz on top? Avoid looking washed out by selecting a metallic or iridescent color that best suits your skin tone, hair and eye color. Silver works well with warm complexions, gold flatters cooler tones, and copper or rose gold compliments blue eyes.
  2. Start with baby metallic steps.If the shine and bling idea scares you, start with accessories. Find a metallic shoe or bag to give your outfit texture and interest.
  3. Shine by day.Why shouldn’t you shine during the day as well? Just do so by the adding one shimmery piece to your look – not head to toe metallic.
  4. Work your metallic pieces in with neutrals.For a metallic piece to really stand out, contrast it with black or white. Think silver midi skirt paired with a black jacket, silver pleated A-line skirt with a fitted feminine black sweater or sneakers and a black t-shirt, a metallic crop over a white collar shirt… It’s a simple combination, yet striking.
  5. Pull together a simple after-dark look.Simply combine a metallic tank, top or tee with a basic black pencil skirt, blazer and heels and you instantly have a glam factor that will take you anywhere!

Girly gray

Although it is often thought of as conservative in nature, “think bankers’ gray”— gray is anything but androgynous this season. Match traditional pinstripes and rich charcoal tweeds to unexpected colors and textures that flatter. It’s about how you mix and match your pieces up and accessorize your grey items that will give this neutral color its new femininity. Find out how here:

  • Add the gloss – pair grey items with patent bags, belts or shoes of any color.
  • Add the warmth – pair grey up with warmer shades of brown and caramel instead of just black and white.
  • Add the texture – scarves, accessories, and interesting leather textures can add complexity and interest to a smooth, slimming monochromatic gray look.
  • Add the intensity – bright colors, such as mustard, cherry and cobalt work especially well with grey, creating a softness, in contrast to the harshness of black.

Celebrate the return of a softer treatment paired with colorful textures to flatter this classic neutral!

Permission to Shine

Though there are a few select wardrobe staples better left worn in the glittering hours of the evening, we recently spotted a slew of ladies sporting sequins during the day, and we were admittedly impressed. Though we tend to reserve this sparkly embellishment for girls’ night out and Chanukah parties, we rounded up eight entirely inventive ways to make them work from dusk till Chanukah dawn!

Help your girls in uniform look their best!

Transform Your Uniform!

Are you ready for school and Yom Tov? Flatter is!

Conceptually, school uniforms can be a satisfying and confidence-boosting ritual for both mothers and daughters. We can help each girl by providing her with a uniform “tune up” so she can look forward to a predictable and flattering outcome every morning.  That is, if (and only if) a girl truly believes her uniform is flattering to her unique body shape. To create a more streamlined silhouette for your body type (and channel your inner glamour to elevate a simple uniform), it is necessary to assess your own special figure and try these 4 quick ways (and search for your own as well) to look neat and attractive in a basic button-down oxford shirt and pleated A-line skirt:

 

IMG_87721-       Do something to define your waist.

The drawback to a uniform that requires a light top and a dark skirt is that it can chop up your torso, making your waist look shorter (not flattering if you already have a short waist) and can make you look shorter, especially if you’re petite. To give the appearance of a longer waist, try positioning your skirt waistband lower if you’re short-waisted or high-waisted. If you’re long-waisted or low-waisted, you may want to wear your waistband a bit higher.

 

2-      Don’t be afraid to tailor your shirt.

To define or smooth over your waist and avoid pulling and puckering, 99% of girls should get at least minor tailoring on their shirts. Fit the shirt properly by first checking the fit across the chest. From adding snaps between the buttons to taking in the waist, it is a rare girl who can look neat in an off-the-rack shirt without even minor adjustments. For slim girls, wearing a top that’s too loose, may cause your entire look to lose definition and appear sloppy.

 

3-      Use a monochromatic color palette.

Avoid shortening your torso by using a consistent tone–creating a unified swath up and down your body–by wearing a top in a similar tone as the skirt. For example, a light blue top pairs well with a light gray skirt, a black skirt pairs well with a navy top. A v-neck cardigan in the same tone as your skirt can work wonders!

 

4-      Select the right skirt length for your body type.

The thing with mid-calf skirt styles is that they draw attention to the thickest part of your legs. And, the hem line cuts up your silhouette with a hazardous horizontal line—making your legs look shorter and rather, thicker. Better select a longer skirt length or stick with a monochromatic look that streamlines your silhouette.
