Women love to wear black. Or at least a lot of dark neutrals. Black is easy and sophisticated. It fits well into a corporate environments. At Kyle Alexandra we love a pop of color, but we understand that it’s hard to break away from a comfort zone. So let’s start slowly, shall we? Accessories! We often hear that coordinating outfits is difficult. By utilizing printed scarves, colorful baubles and bold nail polish, you can easily add color to any outfit, when pulling together a look of all neutrals. Here are some of our favorite fall jewel tones and bright baubles for your daily dose of inspiration!
How amazing is this outfit of the day? It’s comfortable, put together and chic. There is something to be said about color blocking. By breaking up the black with a green a-line skirt, your silhouette will look extra long and lean. As previously stated, we are huge fans of Spanx tights! They are stretchy and thick. We suggest you invest in a few pairs and you will be set for the season! How easy is that? Another new favorite? These adorable black suede wedges. They are darling and pair with many skirt sets hanging in our closet.
Yesterday we told you how to change over your closet for fall, and now we are bringing you the first of many beautiful looks that you can implement into your wardrobe. Jewel tones are best for saturated color combinations this fall, but we are kicking off our look of the day series with delicious neutrals! We urge you to be careful with wearing brown. Rich cognac colors tend to be our favorite. Pairing cognac leather with cream and camel makes for such a luxe look. It’s professional and fashion forward!
Summer is the season of weddings. Whether you are traveling to Cape Cod or the Bahamas, weddings will have you running to the local mall, only to leave in despair. Finding a great dress is hard! We suggest you stick to a color that makes your eyes pop! Saturated hues look best during the hotter months, because you already have a tan. If you are going for a bold color, stick to neutral accessories, like nude or silver heels and a simple clutch. You don’t want to overdo it! And if you’re dress has a higher neckline, it may be nice to add a ‘little something extra.’ A statement necklace is just darling with this dress. All that’s left to do after that – is dance! Have fun!
We have to say that army green tends to remind us of the fall, but when you pair it with poppy orange and glimmering gold it is hot, hot, hot! This outfit of the day certainly has “Tory Burch on safari” vibes and we are so onboard. A neutral, all white ensemble is very crisp and is fun to add color to. And a little green anorak is perfect for those windy summer days, where you need a little something extra! Stay dry!
We love to switch up our nail color in the summer, here at Kyle Alexandra. Poppy reds, radiant purples, pretty pinks and delicate blush colors are on our radar, this month. Since we have past the fourth, you can begin to experiment with different tones, instead of sticking with a festive, signature red.We suggest a radiant orchid or blush pink to show off your summer tan or a bold hot fuchsia for a statement look. Whatever you choose, it is sure to look smashing!
