Styling leggings is one of the most challenging fashion conundrums I get asked for help with as a stylist! My first piece of advice is to find the right pair of leggings. They need to be of durable quality, the correct size and length, and made of a thick enough material never to be seen through! The hem shouldn’t go past the inside ankle bone and the leg should not ‘scrunch’ up at all. Wearing the correct fit and length is necessary for presenting a polished, put together look.
It is finally time to talk about my favorite of all wardrobe staples: The black jumpsuit. The black jumpsuit is the “Little Black Dress” (i.e. LBD) of the every-day woman’s world. You can wear a properly tailored black jumpsuit so many different ways, which places it firmly in the ‘must-own’ column, and can justify a higher price, along with a place of honor, in your closet. My first piece of advice for finding the perfect black jumpsuit is to take on the assumption that you will not find the perfect fit right off the rack. Assume you will need to have this piece of clothing tailored. This actually makes finding this essential piece of clothing a lot easier since you can focus on style and fabric now, and worry about how it fits later.
Lately I’ve been dressing for 18 hour days… Mornings in the office to cocktail parties and client meetings after work! A versatile outfit that works for everything my day throws my way is an absolute must! I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite staples mixed with some sparkle to create the perfect ensemble.
