Being a member of Strong.Confident.Living. and a devout fitness fanatic at Pearl Street Fitness, I am honored to provide you with a few fashion tips for MakeOver Week.  I love the tag line on the cover page of this Facebook Group:  “It’s All In The Attitude”.  Every one of us needs a little attitude adjustment on those days we may be feeling not so confident and a little insecure.  Well, I have a remedy for your insecurity!  Make a fashion statement!

When I throw on a killer pair of heels, they allow me two more inches of courage. When I squeeze into a kick-ass pair of skinny jeans, they give me two more ounces of confidence.  I am here today to provide you with an easy, effortless outfit that will embody cool, chic, on-trend style.

All you need is 4-5 key pieces:

  1. A Skinny Jean  My go-to jean for Fall is one with a black-coated finish. It’s a little dressier and can transition you from day to evening quickly. A charcoal gray, black, or a dark rinse style are other great denim options.  Current denim brands I love are Seven For All Mankind, Frame Denim, and Hudson.  For less expensive options, visit TopShop (online or at Nordstrom), H&M, Zara, and Urban Outfitters.  Check Out Styles: Here and Here
  2. A Graphic or Solid Tee  I love the rock ‘n roll vibe of a vintage concert tee.  It adds a pop of color and a young, playful attitude to any outfit.  (Pam & Gela, DayDreamer, Chaser, Spiritual Gangster, and Wildfox are hot labels).  I find many of my VINTAGE tees at Buffalo Exchange.  Check Out Styles: Here and Here
  3. A Leather or Faux-Leather Moto-Style Jacket (A Military-Inspired Jacket or Bomber will also work).  TopShop, Nordstrom, Free People, and the brand Blank NYC all have really cool, chic, inexpensive styles.  Check Out Styles: Here and Here
  4. A Canvas, Leather, or Suede Sneaker (for Day) in white or black.  (Converse, Adidas, Puma, Golden Goose, and Ugg are brands I covet).  Check Out Styles: Here and Here
  5. A High-Heeled Ankle Bootie (for Evening)  My go-to brands for a “BOOTIE CALL” are Rag&Bone, Fiorentini & Baker, Stuart Weitzman, or Vince.  (Check out Aldo, DSW, or Nordstrom Rack for a lower price point shoe).  Check Out Styles: Here and Here
