How to Wear Color – Lessons from J.Crew’s Holiday Catalog

J.Crew Holiday Catalog – Mix red and green.

J.Crew Holiday Catalog – mix green and orange.

We came across the J.Crew’s holiday catalog on this Refinery29 article and thought “Awesome!┬áThis would be perfect to use as pointers to show our readers how to wear colour!”

Our #onetipwonder for the day? Don’t be afraid to be bright and bold because it just works! We love how the J.Crew holiday catalog worked colours like orange and green together, and primary colors like red and green in one outfit (brilliant for Christmas!).

They say the golden rule on how to wear colour is to not go beyond 3 colours in one outfit – we do agree to a certain extent – especially for those of you starting out experimenting with color. Like our motto, we believe in what works for you and not what’s in trending, so as long as you are confident in pulling off the outfit, go ahead! Try it! Wear it with a smile on your face!

Happy colour mixing!

The Stylists – Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2015 Best Picks

Burberry Prorsum never fails to wow with their collections and Pre-Fall 2015 is no exception. There’s no shortage of cropped, structured jackets, chic fur jackets and romantic, flowing scarves as contrast pieces.

Our favorite picks from their Pre-Fall 2015 collection would be the graphic, cozy, blanket coats that continue to shine from Winter 2014 through to Pre-Fall 2015. Take your pick of the neutral tones of blue and grey or earthy tones in shades of green and brown. If we had our choice, we would take both!

We will post more of our best picks from Pre-Fall 2015 so follow our blog for daily updates and follow us on Pinterest for the latest fashion styling and beauty tips!

The Cozy Wrap Game

One of the most coveted items for the fall/winter 2014 is probably the custom cozy blanket wraps from Burberry Prorsum made famous by all the models draped in them while off duty during fashion week. One of the most repined photos on Pinterest from the FW2014 fashion week season? Our wild guess would be Cara D. wearing her custom Burberry Prorsum cozy blanket wrap.

How do you wear a cozy blanket wrap so you don’t look frumpy?

We suggest wearing a slim cropped turtleneck in a neutral colour with high waisted blank skinnies and ankle boots. This way you are slimming and elongating the whole body and lengthening the torso area. The cozy blanket wrap will add volume to your upper body so you should make sure your lower body is slimmed down with the right colours and shapes.

The feature image shown in this post shows you how to wear the cozy blanket wrap – both models off duty opt for volume on top and chose pieces to present a slim lower half.
