Office Outfit of the Day


Pants: Joie
Necklace: Bauble Bar

Outfit Type:Office
Body Type: Rectangle
Style: Edgy

This outfit is great for a business casual office.  The layering and the pattern on the trousers will add some volume, but the long chains elongate the torso.

Office Outfit of the Day


Sweater: J Crew
Coat: All Saints
Shoes: ASOS
Bag: Oasis
Earrings: Azalea

Outfit Type:Office
Body Type: Hourglass
Style: Sporty

The classic pencil skirt looks great on apples and hourglass figures, but I'm recommending this outfit for the hourglass because the vertical stripes would add too much volume to the apple's upper body.  The longer cut of the coat will tone down the exaggerated effect of the lighter color across the hourglass' hips.  This office outfit should pull the sporty into wearing a skirt and out of the comfort zone of pants.  The shoes and accessories are simple and shouldn't overwhelm the sport aesthetic.

Date Night Outfit of the Day


Pants: L'Agence
Blazer: Leith
Necklace: Bauble Bar

Outfit Type: Date Night
Body Type:Apple
Style: Romantic/Edgy

The belt on this blouse reminds me of the curtain tassel on Scarlet O'Hara's dress from Gone With the Wind, and it can create a waist where the apple needs one.  The beautiful sleeves won't be hidden under sleeves with this edgy, sleeveless tuxedo blazer. The large, geometric necklace draws the eye up, and the slim pants and heels elongate the apple's great legs.

Date Night Outfit of the Day


Blouse: Neiman Marcus Target Collaboration
Booties: Sole Society
Earrings: Bauble Bar
Bag: Coach

Outfit Type: Date Night
Body Type: Inverted Triangle
Style: Classic/Edgy

If you have great shoulders and arms, why not show them off?  The volume of the blouse won't be overpowering on the thin torso of an inverted triangle, and slim hips can always take advantage of skinny jeans.  The frills on the blouse are lovely and should be the center of attention instead of large, heavy accessories.

Date Night Outfit of the Day


Necklace: Marni
Bag: D&G
Shoes: Herve Leger

Outfit Type: Date Night
Body Type: Hourglass
Style: Bombshell

With such a body-conscious silhouette  it's important to stay away from showing too much skin.  These nude shoes will elongate the legs.

Casual Outfit of the Day


Dress: QI Cashmere
Cardigan: Moschino
Shoes: Bagllerina
Earrings: BaubleBar

Outfit Type: Casual
Body Type: Hourglass
Style: Classic/Edgy

This would be the perfect outfit to wear out to brunch or to do your holiday shopping.  The warm and soft cashmere dress is cut perfectly for an hourglass figure.  If you are self-conscious of your curves, the detail of the cardigan will draw the eye.  Speaking of that detail, it's actually safety pins pinned into a classic Fair Isle pattern.  I love anything that adds a unique twist to traditional details.  These shoes are super comfy to make sure your feet are at their best for making it to all the holiday sales.  The clutch adds a stylish touch perfect for perching on the tabletop during brunch, but it can also fit inside one of your shopping totes to keep your hands free for browsing during your shopping trips.  These earrings are a classic for me, and I pair them with so many things.  They are utterly versatile, but again, the black stone is unexpected.

Office Outfit of the Day

Blouse: DKNY
Earrings: Marc Jacobs


Outfit Type: Office
Body Type: Apple
Style: Feminine

This romantic blouse has wonderful accents that don't need a lot of accessories.  The circular accent on the belt of the skirt helps create the illusion of a waist while the bold color will accentuate an apple's great legs.

Date Night Outfit of the Day


Dress: Kai Aakmann
Jacket: Marni
Necklace 1: Bauble Bar
Necklace 2: Marni

Outfit Type: Date Night
Body Type: Rectangle
Style: Dramatic/Edgy/Feminine

Rectangles need to draw the eye up or down to add the illusion of curves.  I personally always recommend adding volume to the top instead of the bottom.  The blouson top of the dress and the ruffle on the jacket are distinctly feminine.  The studded shoes and dramatic jewelry add edge to keep it from being too sweet.

Office Outfit of the Day


Blazer: J. Crew
Blouse: Kain
Trousers: Alice & Olivia
Shoes: Lamb
Clutch: Kooba

Outfit Type: Office
Body Type: Pear
Style: Classic

Today's outfit is perfect for those with a pear shape because of the high waist on the trousers and the shorter blazer length.  This will draw the eye up above the hips.  The white of the blouse will also draw the eye up.  A small clutch keeps things light while the large, gold ring adds boldness without adding any more pattern.  For a little more edginess, instead of the navy blazer, add a blue, leather moto jacket.  This outfit will take you from the office to an evening party, perfect for the holiday season.
