Fashion Rx: Your weekly dose of what to wear!

Thanksgiving is less than a week away and whether you're dining with friends or family this year you know you're looking forward to turkey and pie.  Of course such a meal does not lend itself well to skinny jeans, or uber fitted silhouettes.  The key is finding something comfortable and still looking pulled together. How can you pull this off?

The Cure: Sweater dress Savior

This year look chic and cozy in a simple sweater dress.  Accessorize with a festive scarf and simple jewelry and pair the sweater with a classic pair of riding boots.  It's just enough without being too much.  Hmm just enough but not too much, something to also keep in mind when filling your plate too!

Fantasy Fashion Becomes Reality

Rich, grained calfskin leather, rounded toe, minimalist chic, all with a 3 inch wedge heel...sounds like the perfect bootie that can easily transition from day to night! Of course I'm describing Lanvin's wedge ankle boot, but the $850 price tag makes them far from perfect.

Lucky for you, I could also be describing the "Lexy" by Corso Como. Sleek and stylish with a round toe and rich coffee hued leather, but with a 4 inch wedge for a little extra lift. What's even luckier is that they are only $142! Now that's what I call perfect!

Blazing Blues

While you may be used to red as THE statement making color, blues are coming out in full force. Lapis is a hue with a bright, stunning electricity that is sure to shock a few.

This is a great color for color-blocking, keep in mind the blue/black trend, or for wearing solo.  It plays well with neutrals, and brights like oranges and reds.  So instead of turning up the heat in a blazing red number, play it cool with a striking streak of blue.

Fashion Rx: Your weekly dose of what to wear!

The calendar still says fall but it feels an awful lot like winter outside so, maybe you're planning a weekend curled up in front of a fire watching movies and football with your love.  If that's the case, not leaving the house in not an excuse for not making an effort.  You can be cute and comfy just incase there is a need to run out for take-out or a last minute change in plans!

The Cure: Luxe Lounge

In these cases I feel like simple black leggings are a great way to start, this basic is comfortable, practical, and can easily adapt to any situation.  On top, layer a patterned blanket sweater over a silk cami and pair the outfit with a cute pair of moccasins or ballet flats.  With a cami and leggings as your base you can always switch out the shoes and sweater easily to fit wherever you might find yourself.

Fantasy Fashion Becomes Reality

Do you have booties on the brain? Black ankle booties? Black, platform, ankle booties with buckle details?  I guess you know what's on my brain!  It's hard to resist the stunning statement appeal of Burberry Prorsum's leather ankle boots.  With a five inch stilettlo heel and one inch platforms this sleek and sophisticated pair gets any fashionista's stamp of approval.  The only thing not hard to resist is the $795 sticker.

Thankfully Sam Edelman has an equally statement worthy sidekick!  This bootie has a four and a half inch heel with a one inch platform and what it lacks in height it makes up for in details with dual buckles at the collar.  The price is just right at only $148.  Stamp of approval?  SOLD!

All-American Ode

Sportsmanship has taken on a different tone this season with influences from All-American hunting style taking the stage.  According to Haper's Bazaar,
"The Fair Isle sweaters, tweeds and knits of American heritage brands got the high-fashion treatment on fall’s runways. From hunting-gear reds and oranges at Rodarte and Michael Kors to earthy hues built for blending into the wilderness — but standing out on the streets — at Wang and Ralph Lauren, fashion girls are getting a lesson in the great outdoors."

Wear a little bit or a lot, mix your plaid with tweed, add cable knit if you so choose.  Keep the color palette earthy and be sure not to forget your riding boots!

Fashion Rx: Your weekly dose of what to wear!

We are well into fall and football season now that November has arrived.  What are you wearing to the game this weekend???

The Cure: Tasteful Tailgate

While some show school spirit with painted faces and crazy wigs, your style philosophy is a bit more refined.  It is totally possible to present your pride without painting any part of your body.  Choose one item that clearly states who you are rooting for, your best bet is probably a fitted tee.  Pair it with dark wash skinny jeans, knee high boots and layer over it with a fitted, solid colored blazer. If you're feeling a bit more spirited, accessorize with a scarf in the appropriate colors. Voila, team spirit and tastefully so.
